Could someone tell me the best place and model of edible ink printers to buy? I really don't want to spend alot of money for something I may not use alot.

I was like you I wanted an edible ink printer and didn't know where to start so I started researching and this is what I done. I noticed on sugarcraft.com they were doing a package deal with the canon ip3500 and it was a little out of my price range so I went to office depot and bought my canon ip3500 and cord for $117.00 and I bought the edible ink and paper from sugarcraft it cost me 145.00 for the starter kit ready to just be put in the printer. When I ordered my paper and ink the lady at sugarcraft helped me alot and said if I ever had questions just ask them even though I didn't get my printer from them. I have absolutely loved mine. Works great. Doing it this way saved me about 1/2. Any questions just let me know. Mel

I did the same. Orderded my printer online and then got the supplies seperate still cost me about $150 with supplies, but much cheaper than purchasing the whole system. I have the Canon ip4200.

I have an epson all-in-one and love it! It has never clogged on me and it sits for months at a time without being used. Got it for under $60 on ebay.

I have been through 2 Canon IP 3500 in 4 months. I rarely used them and when the first one broke, they sent me another one. I used it once (one day but printed about 10 sheets at one time) and it broke. It gets where it won't recognize the black cartridge and it won't print the black. I tried putting a new chip on it but it didn't work. I had to replace the print head and it worked one time only. I'm looking for another printer! I love having the edible images!

GO to office depot...look at the EPSON cx8400 It is the BEST (In my opinion...and the opinion of KopyKake) then go to kopykake.com, you can download the software you need, order ink and paper for about $75.00, it is really awesome to add such neat details to cakes with this quick and easy medium! I LOVE MINE!

You can also download edible artist for free from this site http://deco.uk.com/ I think it's easier to use then kopykakes software and you don't need credits to use it.

I purchased an Epson cx8400 $59.99. I then purchased the ink and sheets from kopykake $100.00. I found it cheaper this way also.
