I have a groom's cake that needs an edible print image to go onto fondant. I sure don't want to spend the money on a machine that I would use rarely. Does anyone know where I can get one printed? icon_smile.gif Thanks.

A while back before I got my own printer I called all of the bakeries in the city and found one that would print it for me. I e-mailed it to him and he called me after he printed it. I believe he charged $5.00 but that was a long time ago. When do you need it?

Usually if they have a bakery in the grocery store, they have an printer to print the edible images for you. When we had one made it was fairly decent price, can't remember exactly but it was less than five dollars. Good Luck!!

Yes, and I use it all the time! I have an Epson C88 and love it. I had a Canon before this one and had problems at the end but it lasted a long time. I found the Epson for less than $100 at an office supply and it has paid for itself over and over. I have purchased edible ink to refill the cartridges that I initially purchased from Kopykake and so far so good. A printer for edible images opens all kinds of doors with ways to decorate and add accents to your cakes. I hardly ever use it for people's images unless I use photoshop and put a child's face on a quarterback's picture or something similar.
