Hi Ladies,

Okay, I came across this and am really curious how we would do this. I could see how great this idea would be for many different types of cookies. Sometimes having that bit of sleeker look with printing would be nice.

I know it is not an edible image as the background is not white and they say "Our sophisticated printing technology allows us to customize each cookie with the names" and on another site, they say that they "print directly onto cookie". Has anyone seen this done? What machine do we use? Any ideas??? I am perplexed!

It might be some sort of silk screening or maybe just a stencil and dry brushing luster dust. Looks interesting though. Sorry I couldn't be more help.

Kimsmom -

I think your first guess is correct - silkscreening.

I've done dry dust brushing, and it's not that clean.

I've seen this before, and it is incredibly cool! I must've seen a video of it in action...even cooler! And if I ever win the lottery, I'm buying one!

Wow, that looks cool. I wonder how much they cost???? Probably more that I can afford right now! I was wondering if anyone has ever tried a rubber stamp on a cookie. I wonder if that would work??? Certainly would be a cheaper option!

That is amazing! I found the price - $5500. That's a lot of cookies icon_smile.gif

I did try a rubber stamp once on some Christmas cookies that I made they turned out out but if I used to much color then of course it was to thick but the cookies are in my photos check them out.

Thanks for the info, Tina (KHalstead)! I just saw the price and as I am not a pro, it is out of my league (sniffle, sniffle). Fabulous though for those who can do it and you have answered my question! Hopefully over time the price will come down (hopefully a lot!) or someone else will come up with a less expensive version because this printing directly on a cookie idea has so much potential!

Robinscakes - I just saw a forum thread where they talked about using rubber stamps. You cannot use those at craft stores as they are not food safe. There are some out there that are and names are listed on the forum link: http://forum.cakecentral.com/cake-decorating-ftopict-600616-stamp.html

Thanks for everyone's help!

Wow, the price on that!!! I'd never use it enough to justify buying one.

Ditto on that Kimsmom, but my mind is overflowing with ideas for it!

two years ago I invested in the printing machine made by sweet art. Along with the computer program comes a package of templets for the various sizes of round cookies. Once I got comfortable with the process I started making my own templets for other shapes. It works great for monograming and photos. It is a paperless machine, prints directly on the cookie. It will also print directly on a cake. The ink runs about $75 and depends on how many cookies you do as to how long it lasts.

Okay Ladies... I know it's a long shot, and I have no idea if anyone actually wants one of these... but there is one listed on my local craigslist for $2k. (I think they sell new for 5k?) Just figured I'd post the link...
