Use our genius Envelope Letting Templates to ensure that your envelope is as gorgeous as the card inside. These handy templates help you to write straight, evenly spaced addresses each and every time.

For today’s how to series, we’re getting you started with your Kodak Verité Craft 6 Anna Griffin Edition Printer. Here’s a look at how to set up your new printer, download the App and use the included templates. Let’s get started!

When you open your printer box locate the instruction sheet and 2 ink cartridges. Remove the white material support piece for the back of the printer that is taped to the bottom of the device. This sits behind the printer to support larger items in the craft tray.

Load your ink cartridges as shown on the instruction sheet and power on the printer. Follow the prompts on the device to connect the printer to your wi-fi. Then follow the prompts to print and scan your test page.

Once your printer is connected to your wi-fi, you can print to it from your PC and mobile devices just like a regular printer.

There is a free Kodak Verité App for mobile devices that can be found in the App Store for iOs devices and in the Google Play store for Android devices. Download this App and with your printer powered on and connect to wi-fi, walk through the steps of connecting the mobile device to the printer as prompted in the App.

The App will recognize your Anna Griffin Edition printer and display our card templates on the main screen of the App. Here you can print the greeting cards, photo cards and thank you notes that were shown on HSN. In the App, you can also design your own project, address your envelopes, scan photos and so much more!

Kodak is continuing to work on improvements to the App, and there was a recent App update to allow for more functionality. In mid-August you will be able to modify the Anna Griffin templates on Android tablets. For now, Android tablet users can print the cards as designed on lots of surfaces.

Contact Kodak directly for troubleshooting and questions about your printer.
