Are you still on the hunt for that perfect Mother’s Day gift? Epson Canada has just what you’re looking for and it’s a gift that’s sure to wow! Whether your mother is a busy career woman, a creative crafter or a stellar scrapbooker, the Epson Expression Premium XP-800 Small-In-One is sure to be a hit!
This sleek printer packs tons of function into an unbelievably small size. The combination printer, scanner and fax is up for any task, which makes it a great choice for a home office. But that’s just the start of what the XP-800 can do.
One of my favourite features was the Wi-Fi Certified networking that allowed me to print wirelessly from any computer in the house. There isn’t a whole lot of space around my desk and so being able to have the printer set up in any room in the house without having to worry about connecting it was wonderful.
The Touch Panel was another fabulous feature of this printer. Not only does the gesture navigation make operating, previewing and editing photos incredibly easy and allow for printing from popular memory card types without a computer, but the screen is also adjustable so that it can be raised or lowered to the most convenient angle possible.
But what really wowed me about the Epson Expression Premium XP-800 Small-in-One was how incredibly versatile it was. The printer features not one but two paper trays, one that is specifically dedicated to printing photos on 4×6 or 5×7 photo paper. And the photo quality is absolutely phenomenal. I printed a few fun family photos on Epson Premium Photo Paper Glossy to test the quality and I was delighted by the bright, vibrant colours of the photos. Even better, the XP-800 features Auto Photo Correction that automatically corrects the lighting in poorly exposed images and features optional red eye removal. And with advanced face detection, the printer can actually distinguish people from objects to produce natural skin tones!
This printer would be a dream come true for a scrapbooking mom as it makes selecting and printing the perfect pictures so easy and is also a fabulous choice for any mom that wants to show off all those proud family moments with plenty of pictures around the room. And if your mom is more the crafty type, there’s no end to the projects she can create with this printer! From beautiful cards printed on Epson Premium Presentation Paper Matte to custom-made labels that print right onto CDs and DVDs, everything she creates will have that special professional touch!
My final favourite feature of this printer, and one that I know I’ll be using a lot, is the Epson Connect Mobile Printing. This free service allows me to print and scan remotely from an iPhone, iPad, tablet or smartphone. And the Small-in-One also comes equipped with Apple AirPrint and Google Cloud Print for wireless printing on the go. I love the fact that I can quickly and easily print documents, photos or web pages from my phone even if I’m away from the house!
I am so excited to test out all the special projects I can create with the Epson XP-800 Small-in-One over the coming weeks. I’ve been blown away by the vibrant pictures and clear text of the printer thus far and I’m planning to design some cute labels, business cards and custom CDs in the coming weeks.
No matter what your mom needs from a printer, this one is up to the task and then some, so give Mom the perfect gift with the versatile and intuitive Epson Expression Premium XP-800 Small-in-One. It’s a gift mom will use for all kinds of work and play every day!

I like the wireless feature.
Wow, wish my old skool printer was wireless and so simple to use for my crafty dental and Tooth Fairy projects and much much more!
Amazing printer! I need one! lol! My old one broke and I always try to rely on hubby to print at work! Great nails! That should be your next post!! :)
Love the colour in the prints. WOW! Such a great way to print off pics. I always forget mine on my phone, camera or lap top because I think printing would be hard. This was easy!
Fantastic review, I am looking for one which does not take much space and so impressed with the picture it printed of your son, this will be 1 of the 2 I am considering!
The picture quality was great and it actually has a separate cartridge for black text to ensure clarity. I have to say, as far as versatility goes, it REALLY impressed me! :)
Thank you for the fantastic review Kathryn i am looking for a new printer so this is just perfect timing. I love the 2 paper trays…one specifically for photos!
That’s one of my favourite features too, Teresa! The tray to catch the printed paper also extends automatically, which is pretty cool!
I love the photo of your son and the two stuffed animals–it printed really clear! It’s amazing to see how far technology has come in just a short time.
Love the idea of wireless printing and remote printing from your mobile. Really cool.
I’ve had an Epson printer before and really liked it.
Neat features. Wireless printing is so important in our house as well. Love the nail art!
That wireless printing was a dream come true! LOVE it!
