I am going to have to buy a printer to do edible images on. Will you please recommend one to me?

Check with Icing Images, they have info on what printers work with the ink they sell.. I have a Canon ip 3600, It works well once you get the hang of it.

I have an Epson C88+ (Had it for a couple of years) that I'm NOT at all impressed with, I'd be looking to replace it if I had cash right now.

KopyKake is another one that sells ink and should be able to recommend a printer.

littlecake - can you use the pixma with edible inks?? I had no idea! I'll have to look at getting one now. What inks and paper do you use with it?

I have the Canon ip3600 and love it. Ordered the ink from Icingimages and have used the same ink since last April or so. Print every few weeks and have never had a problem.

Hi:
I would recommend a Canon. The Canon has the removable printhead which makes it easier should you have a problem. Go with the mp560 or the ip3600

I have the canon mp560 and love it. I find icingimages ink better than kopykake.

Odd woman out here. I have an Epson C88+ and love it. It works flawlessly for me. I bought this model because I have a good friend who had one and she had tried several different models - this one was the one she liked the best. I have had mine for almost a year now, and no problems. I do print something every couple of weeks though.

I also use the epson c88+, but one of my cardridges doesn't work as good any more and i'm having problems finding an replacement. Otherwise i would buy the epson again.

Cannon IP 3600 - only problem ive had with it is sometimes stops reading the "cyan cartridge" I have to shut it off and turn it back on then it will work again. Weird thing.
