I just uploaded a cake to my gallery that I did this afternoon using Icing Images' inks and icing sheets. The color just pops. We've had some discussions here about edible images not being bright and intense. I think it's often a matter of image choice and preparation. Just wanted to illustrate how bright these images can be. This will be a hit tonight, for sure.
Wow..they are bright ! Love it.
Wow! The colors still impress me and I see them all the time! Thanks for posting!
Hi that is fab.. Could i ask what printer and what settings did you have this on. I have a cannon ip3500 and the colour is terrible. Any help mostly appreciated Thanks linzi
Whose ink are you using? And what settings are you using with those inks? We are just now upgrading all our inks to the spongeless cartridges and we are upgrading all our inks to the gold label inks, just like what Crim is using. But she is using a different printer.
Hi I am using cartrides from edible ink. They started of good colours but now are appauling and I have orders comin out my ears. Could you advise on what settings i should be using and do you sell the ink. Thank you for the reply cant et a response from anycake x
What brand of ink? How often do you print? What printer are you using?
Hi i print upto 4 times a week. The printer is a canonip3500 and the brand of ink is canon pixma with electric chip
Whose edible inks are you using and hold old is the printer? Have you ever replaced the printhead and if so how long ago (dont worry you may not need to replace it, but lets continue on here!)
i buy them from anycake.com and the printer is about a year old. I have not replaced the printer head. One thin i will say is i have never been told what settings to use for edible images. Not sure if the printer settins are correct thanks
Ok, I looked it up and anycake sells KK brand. I do not know the settings they recommend, but I would start first with running a nozzle check to see what colors are printing. Go in to your printer properties and under maintenance there is something called a nozzle check. Put regular paper in the back and see how what prints compares to what the computer says you should see. If all your colors are printing correctly, try putting your settings on paper type: matte. Do not change anything else and see if that helps. If all colors are not printing, you may have a clog, printhead burnout or perhaps even a dry sponge. But lets start with telling me what the nozzle check states.
I have done a nozzle check and there is 2 magneta colours d and e well in the the one in the e collum there is nothing printed as if there is a clog thanks
Ok...so unfortunately you are correct and you have a clog!!! Now, KK uses a different ink formula then we do. I am going to advise you and hopefully it will also help you. I am assuming that you have relatively new cartridges. I am going to assume that if you are refilling that you have not refilled more then three times. Take out your cartridges, make sure there is ink in them! Remove your printhead. I know you do not have our cleaner or our steamer, so rinse your printhead under in the sink allowing hot water run on the part where the ink goes in to your printhead. Let it run on there until the water runs clear. Once it runs clear, dry the printhead off very carefully, inside, outside making sure all computer chips are dry without any water spots. Place everything back into your printer. Run one cleaning cycle and then one nozzle check. See if it made some improvement. If it does not, print a colorful picture on regular paper, 5 times. Run a nozzle check and see if it improved. If it did not, let me know and I have more tricks up my sleave!!!
Hi I have done all that the colours aree great but the pinkk is still very dull and barely noticable
How old is your magenta cartridge?
about 4/5 week
How old is your magenta cartridge?
You may want to try to dampen your rollers. This is a last effort if you have cleaned your printer and it looks like the printhead is going bad, this sometimes works and is definately worth trying. I do not put this in general posts so you will have to PM me to get this info as to how to do it.
