I recently purchased a printer so that I can start doing image cakes. Was wondering where all of you get your edible ink and frosting sheets. Does Joanns carry stuff like this or can I only get this through the mail? Thank you so much for your help!!!

P.S. I got a Canon ip3500 in case you wanted to know.

If I already have the original ink cartridges can't I take the chip off of there and put on the cartridges w/out the chip? I'm trying to get the best price possible since this is my first time and it is basically for practice.

Thanks ladies I know I can count on you!!!

You could give icingimages a call, they can advise you about that. It might be feasible, but if it didn't work, you would be out the time and money for the w/o chip cartridges and still have to buy the with chip ones. icon_sad.gif

OK - I am new to this Printer idea - and wondering .... You can buy a - lets call it a regular printer and then buy the ink/paper and a "chip" and it becomes ...TaDa.. the image printer you can use on your cakes/cookies?
I have seen them online for 300$ or more.... but a regular printer can be $60 (on the cheap side).. so how does this work?

Please let me in on the secret ! MUCH APPRECIATED ! icon_lol.gif

And correct me if I am way off -

Kammerude there are certain canon and epson printers that you can buy edible ink cartridges for. Kopykakes website has a list of them.

Here is some stuff in PDF from KopyKake. It tells you what ink to buy with what printer. I like the Epson b/c you don't have to mess around with the chip. Plop the ink in and go! And I have let mine sit idle for months at a time, and then go to print something off, and it's perfect. No drying or anything!. Love it!!!!

I got my printer off of ebay for $40 shipped. It is a brand new printer, never even opened the box. Absolutely great price. It should be here tomorrow. I will try Sam's club. That would be great if I could get them locally. Can you only buy the ink online?

Thanks again!!!
