Printer Ink for Scrapbooks?

I have an HP all in one printer, scanner, copier and wondered if anyone knows if the ink is safe to use in scrap booking. Thanks in advance.

RE: Printer Ink for Scrapbooks?

Thank you for your interest in Hewlett-Packard products.

All of the ink used in our inkjet printers are acid free but are not
recommended for archival purposes. The reason for this is the ink is not
bonded to the paper during the printing process. A LaserJet is a better
solution for archiving because the toner is bonded to the paper in the
fusing assembly, so it will last as long as the print media lasts.
