Win a Kodak ESP 3 All-in-One Printer

Mother's Day 2008 - Giveaway Event

Moms do a lot of printing. There is a lot in our lives that requires printing – photos, schedules, kids’ homework assignments, scrapbook pages… the list goes on.

So we need a good printer. Make it an all-in-one printer that saves us money on printing, and we are really good to go!

When I saw the Kodak EasyShare Printers and their low-cost ink refills featured on Celebrity Apprentice, I thought, “Now, that is a product moms can really appreciate!”

At the time, we were working with Kodak on our giveaway of an EasyShare camera. So, I suggested to Kodak that you all would love an All-in-One Printer giveaway for Mother’s Day. They agreed and here we are!

kodak-esp3.jpgWhen I received the Kodak ESP 3 All-in-One Printer to review, I was more than excited. Printing that is less expensive sounds really good to me!

Setting up the Kodak ESP 3 All-in-One Printer is easy and intuitive and the manual quickly walks the user through it. (Although, because my old printer used a parallel port, I didn’t have any USB printer cables on hand. Since it was 10pm, I had to wait until the next day to buy a USB cable before I could set up the ESP 3.)

Once I got it up and running, I was really impressed with the quality of the prints. I chose a shot with vibrant colors to test the quality of the photo printing and I was shocked with how bright and crisp the photo came out. It was worthy of a scrapbook page for sure!

I love the convenience of having an all-in-one printer that can copy, print and scan. I seem to always need to make copies or scan items. The ESP 3 offers one-touch color copying without a PC. That will be a very handy feature – I won’t have to use my fax machine to make copies anymore. And the high definition CIS scanner is capable of scanning several images at once and automatically saving them as separate files – now that is a cool, time saving feature!

The Kodak ESP 3 All-in-One Printer also comes with image enhancement features which can be great for users who don’t use photo programs like Photoshop to enahce their shots. (I am addicted to editing my shots in Photoshop, but for a quick alternative, these features are cool.)

The Kodak Perfect Touch Technology analyzes the color and tone in an image to create fewer dark shadows, more vibrant colors, and richer details with red eye reduction and color restoration.

The Facial Retouch Feature is a quick way to reduce the appearance of skin blemishes and enhance facial features. I usually do these kinds of adjustments in Photoshop, but I can see how this technology would be great when a user either doesn’t have a photo editing program or just wants to quickly enhance their shot.

The entire line of Kodak All-in-One Printers is very affordable. The Kodak ESP 3 retails for $129.00 and the EasyShare line ranges from $109.99 to $199.99. The black ink refills are $9.99 and the color are just $14.99. That is a whole lot easier to handle than the $30 I was spending for my old printer’s refills!

If you and your family need to get a new printer, perhaps hinting for a Kodak All-in-One Printer this Mother’s Day might be a good idea. And if you want to try and win one, we have one to give away!

You have a wonderful blog going here, and wish I was a blogger so I could add the button. But alas, the closest to blogging I get is doing this and reading them, lol.
    Well I will be waiting with excitement and anticipation to see who wins. Good luck to all, and Happy Mother’s Day to you too.

  50. says

    Funny – literally this morning my printer died. When I told my husband his response was “Well, Mother’s Day is coming up…”. I figured I had to enter myself into the giveaway!

  55. says

    definitely need a new printer for opening a practice. i take so many photos of my son, but it’s so expensive to print them…that i just leave them in digital format. this would be great for sharing memories with others in a more affordable fashion.

  56. Barbara Fox says

    I need one of these so bad so I don’t have to drive 10 miles to develop pics for our Animal Rescue.

  57. Barbara says

    Great I am Soo Excited my printer hasn’t worked in Months and I wasn’t able to replace it. What a great Contest, I really hope to win this one.

  59. says

    Hey Moms … We had our fifth child back last year, and I was looking for flexible ways to make some extra money while she stayed home with kids. As we turned to the internet, and started researching different ideas, she continually ran into scam and spam at every turn. As I became more involved, we realized there were money making opportunities, they just need to be uncovered and understood. While much of this has been trial and error, we started to discover what was successful and what wasnโ€™t. At this point, it was time to document some ideas and successes, and hopefully get some feedback and suggestion from other entrepreneurs. Of course, part of this blog in itself is not only to share ideas, but hopefully gather a viewer and referral base, to have more opportunities for everyone to be successful.


  60. Nikki Evans says

    I would love to have a printer for pictures! This would be so much better than what I am doing now.

  61. says

    I added a button for the very first time to my My Space blog, lets hoping this works, I have never done this for anything ever. I cannot tell you how much this Printer Rocks

  62. says

    Boy do I need this. I was just thinking today that I was going to hook up my broken printer b/c I can still scan, make copies, and view pictures and keep my other printer hooked up so I can print.

  63. Cathy Reed says

    I love to take photos, nature and my kitties and would love a new printer. I can only afford the cheaper ones and after a couple uses they stop working it’s very frustrating.

  64. says

    I would love this. I don’t feel like I have enough pictures of my kids around! I’d love to have more… and send more, and make funny scrapbooks, and coloring pages, etc.

  65. James says

    My printer got jammed a few weeks ago, and I’ve been unable to clear it, so I could really use a new printer. Thanks.

  66. Kathy L. says

    My family loves Kodak. We’ve never had any problems with their products, and we would absolutely love to win this great item. Thanks for the giveaway.

  67. Amber says

    Looks like a great printer – Kodak always has good stuff!! I’d love to win this for myself or my mother-in-law for Mother’s Day. (She has 3 grandsons that are 14 months old and loves to print pictures – needless to say she could use a great printer!!)

  68. Christine Groce says

    I would love to win this for my daughter who has a 3 year old and newborn and would put it to very good use. Thanks!

  70. Mel says

    Great giveaway! I’d love to win this–maybe it would inspire me to take more photos than I do now, which I really need to start doing.

  71. says

    Fabulous prize. I don’t have a blog, so I can’t add a button, but I after reading all the great blogs available, I am thinking I have a different perspective and might be starting one.

  72. says

    Ohhhhh how I want and need this all in one! I got the Kodak easy share camera yet I still have to go online and print out 2000 pictures every 5 or 6 months and wait for them to be delivered. Darn it… This would be soooo good to just have at home… I’m adding the button to my blog… :)

  73. Kristin says

    You’re so right about the high cost of printer cartridges. This would really take a load off my mom’s back and her wallet. :)

  74. Kathy S says

    What a great giveaway! I’m ready to finally buy my first digital camera, and truly will need a printer to make copies of all the pictures I’ll be taking of my 2 beautiful little granddaughters!

  75. CLifton Wade says

    My children would just love this and so would my wife of more than 38 years. Thanks for all the great contests!

  76. says

    Oh I so need a new printer!!! I can no longer print pictures off on mine because it is just shot.
    Thanks for the great giveaway!!!

  77. Marsha says

    Thanks for the great opportunity! I enjoyed watching The Apprentice episode that Kodak was featured in. I just wish Gene Simmons hadn’t been fired so early in the season.

  78. LaDonna says

    I’d love to be entered! It’s been ages since I’ve been able to get to the store to print pictures off so this would be awesome!

  79. LaDonna says

    Hi again,

    Thanks again!

  80. Eva D says

    please add me this would be so great to own. I take lots of pictures that stay “forever” in the memory card

  81. says

    Yes! I am in need of a new printer. Mine has decided to take a permanent vacation.

    I’ve posted about the giveaway and put the button on my sidebar, however the button doesn’t seem to be working. I think I will try to post it again in a couple of days to see if it will work later.

  82. Melanie says

    It would be nice to be able to print photos at home rather than always uploading to Costco. Thanks for the opportunity!

  83. Molly Capel says

    Oh, I soo need to win this one! My children tried to help me “fix” my last printer. Needless to say, that poor printer has moved on to a better place. lol

  84. says

  86. Joanna Smith says

    Right now I have no means for printing my pictures at home. That is why I am so pleased to have found your giveaway! I actually own 2 Kodak Digital Cameras so I know they will work just perfectly with this printer. I am used to going to our local drugstore and printing pictures from there, but with the cost of gas rising so much, and the time it takes to do the printing, I would be so much more inclined to print pictures if I had the convenience of being able to do it from home. Thank you for offering such a great giveaway! Oh, and thank you Kodak!

  87. says

    Wow, this is a popular contest! I’m in the process of putting the link up in my sidebar…I’m having a problem with the code, but I’ll get it worked out!

  88. Amy C. says

    Are you kidding me? I’m a practicing ameteur photographer and I’m ALWAYS printing pics of my little man. Enter me, please!

  89. says

    This would be a welcome switch from my old printer I’m using now. I know that my technologically advanced son would appreciate it more. He thinks everything we have is a dinosaur. He says that my cell phone looks like a portable telephone booth, and I should stick a quarter in the end of it to use it or dial out. It’s not really that bad, and it still works:)

  90. Amanda says

    This would be great for our camera and to print out all the cute shots of our son! Thanks for the chance.

  91. Tanya Moyer says

    How cool is that printer! I’d love one! Enter me please!! Thank you!

  99. says

    I’ve never had a printer. Just got my first laptop computer for xmas. Not sure how to hook the printer up to the computer. But I’d love one so I could enter more contests that require photos…Thanks for such a nice contest, Dianna Murrah

  101. John OBrien says

    Finally a printer from a company that’s cutting the cost of the expensive part – the refills.
