I don't understand why you need any software at all. Any software will work --Powerpoint, Word, or any graphics program.

What I'd like is inks that are bright, cover well and don't clog the print head.

Well...some of us don't know how to use Powerpoint,word etc and don't want to spend the money on expensive programs which I find cumbersome to use.LOL No cranckiness intended...Kopykake is easy and so is Edible Artist but have limitations to what you can do with it.I do agree that bright inks and no clog problems are #1...

Hi:
Thanks for all the info. The brightness and contrast can be adjusted inside the printer preferences before you print. I am all over the multiple images. I am working with a printing program now that does that, still figuring things out. But we are in the process of writing a program so I want to be sure that I cover all basis as best I can. On the distortion of images, that all comes down to what you start with. If your picture is small or pixelated to begin with, there is nothing you can do with improving it that much.

As for the inks, we have made leeps and bounds with our Gold Label inks. They far surpass earlier versions of sponged cartridges as far as clogging and as far as colors, I have never seen a more vibrant ink in 11 years. Its not perfect, but it really is so much better than the previous inks. We continually are working to perfect them. We never stop in that area! Our sales have gone up and our tech calls have gone down as more and more poeple make the switch.

I just reordered refill ink, how do I know if it is "gold label" I did not see any distinctions about gold label when I ordered?

Icing Images has a metallic gold label sticker on each cartridge telling you it's gold label.

I did not order cartridges I ordered bottles of refill ink. Thanks for the reply though

It doesn't matter about the ink.. it's the cartridge that is considered the gold label..meaning the new spongless head which doesn't absorb as much ink and therefore less waste.Also allows more printing and less clogging.

Actually the refill ink does say gold label if it's available for your printer model.

Oh spiffy, gold label ink is NOT available for my printer. Thanks tiggy2 for clarifying that it depended on the printer model. I did not know that how good or not good of ink you could get depended on your printer model. Weird. If I am refilling my cartridges anyway why not make gold level refill bottles available for whatever model printer? I am missing something.

kiddiekakes those cartridges sound much better mine seem like they waste a LOT of ink. Too bad they are not available for my model printer.

WE only sell gold label for certain printers. Only the more up to date ones.

Unfortunately we do not recommend mixing inks. Each type of ink is formulated to mix color and flow in the cartridges that they use. You may not get good coloring or the cartridges may not flow correctly when you refill with a different type of ink.

What I meant to say is you have to have the gold cartridges first to refill with the proper ink...not that you could mix any ink with and cartridge...Sorry if I confused you...Debbie clarified it though...I have gold cartridges and the replacement inks from Icing Images.
