Think your home inkjet printer is just for printing out boarding passes and driving directions? Think again! Here’s how to use your printer to label things, play games, design clothes, and more. There’s a project for everyone and it won’t require specialized (or expensive) equipment.

Print Your Own Posters

You don’t need to break the bank at your local music store to plaster your wall with pics of your favorite band. A faster, cheaper, and easier way to do it is to print from your home or office computer. Just make sure you find a high-resolution picture to guarantee the best quality possible.

Get Organized

Whether you need to meal prep, label your file folders or stick name tags to your personal possessions, you can do so by printing simple labels from your home or office computer.


This is one of the most practical and useful projects you can do with your home printer. There are loads of ready-to-use calendar templates available online, some of which allow you to customize and create your own unique designs!

Design T-Shirts

Have a charity or sports event coming up? Make your own printed T-shirts with your home printer and iron-on inkjet transfers. Of course, you don’t need to stop at t-shirts, either. Most iron-on transfer sheets work with any fabric blend that is at least 50 percent cotton, so you can print your own tote bags, trucker caps, and more. Just be careful when inserting the transfer paper into your paper tray as it’s more expensive and heavier than standard A4 sheets and may move through the printer differently.
