What ink does my HP printer use?
To identify what cartridge name your printer uses, simply lift the scanner unit open to expose your printer's cartridge tray. The cartridge tray will slide to the center and will stop when it's ok for you to remove the cartridges. Take out the ink cartridge from the tray and locate the label. The name of your printer's cartridge should be easily visible.
HP cartridges have two names: the part number and the short name. Take the HP 64 cartridge for instance, the short name for the HP 64 is "HP 64", the long name is "HP N9J86A". You can search for HP cartridges using either names, though the short name is easier to remember, customers usually prefer using it.
Identifying the number of cartridges your HP printer uses
Different HP printer models have different ink cartridge requirements--starting with the number of ink cartridges it needs. Most HP inkjet printer models need only two ink cartridges--black and tri-color, while some models use 4 ink cartridges (cyan, magenta, yellow, black), and specialized HP photo printers use as much as 8 ink cartridges to be able to provide a wide gamut of colors and render vivid images.

HP Instant Ink vs Original HP Cartridges vs Compatible Alternatives
So many options, which one to pick. It really depends on your usage and your budget. If you have an inkjet printer and you don't print all that often, it's better to have a limited amount of ink rather than buying cartridges in bulk as ink in cartridges tend to dry up. Original HP or compatible alternatives? Depends on your budget. HP inkjet printers tend to run out of ink often so you should expect to replace cartridges often so printing with your HP printer gets expensive pretty quickly. By using compatible HP cartridges, you save money and stay productive with an uninterrupted printing schedule.
How does the HP ink program work?
What about Instant Ink? HP's ink program--the Instant Ink service--is a subscription based service where ink is delivered to consumers as needed. This service is something that's garnered quite a reputation. Our best answer to that is read what others are saying and then decide for yourself. Here's an article on HP Instant Ink
