I'm ready to purchase a printer. I want to use it to print images like football team logos. I'm clueless. I've heard you can use a regular pinter if it is being used exclusivly for edible printing.
So, should I be looking at a regular printer, cricut, or a linda mcclure silhouette.
Please help me get the right one. I won't be doing massive amounts of printing since it's just me and my little business.
Thank you as always!!
I bought a regular printer (Epson Stylus NX415) for like $70 and got my ink from kopykake. I bought all of this about a year ago. I don't print edible images that often and I was kinda worried that the ink my dry up and clog but I haven't had a bit of problem. I also get my edible image sheets from them.
I just bought one at the beginning of June. I purchased the Cannon ip3600 from Amazon.com, and the edible ink and paper from icingimages.com. I am just a hobbyist, and didn't want to spend a whole lot. This system has been great. I have used it mostly for cookies so far. The first weekend I had it I made 150 cookies for a going away party at my church. I bought the precut circles, printed the images, and put them right on the wet glazed cookies. More recently I bought the full sheet paper and used it to print yearbook photos for my 15 year H.S. reunion. It's a lot of fun.
I have the Canon ip3600, too. It's my second machine, and I love it! I'm using Icing Images inks and frosting sheets now and am very happy with those, too. I have the Cricut Cake and while I like it a lot...I'd never consider doing logos on it. I think you'll be much happier with the edible images for that purpose. Don't know a thing about the Silhouette.
