I look at the steamer for cleaning the print head on the printer from kopykake and it excludes epson. I have just had a bad time dealing with my first epson unless it was just that model and i and kind of afraid of buying another one, I have only use it about 4 times.

I am not sure if you found your answer yet, but consider our gold label line. It is a Canon printer that has a removable printhead. This allows you to take the print head out if it clogs, but the Gold Label printer has yet to produce a clog thus far in our office. Whatever printer you use, you want to be sure that you use it! Even if you print on regular paper, use the printer.

Is there a printer out there that doesn't need to be used often to be reliable... I am in the market too, but only require an edible image once in a while...Any advice would be great!

The Gold Label seems to be preforming well over longer times without clogs. However, still I do recommend rather than investing in a printer, I would use a company that prints for you. We do not recommend that you purchae a printer unltess you will be using it at least once per week. We print for bakeries at a reduced price and will ship it. It does require planning ahead. There are also plenty of people on Ebay that will print images and ship them as well.

Understand, its not that it wont work, but if you do get a clog from sitting, if the clog is more serious, it could potentially cost you more than the print is worth to fix.

Another thought. If you really want to purchase one, go to area bakeries and let them know you have a machine and offer your printing services at a reduced cost. This way you can use your idle printer and make some money as well!)
