I'm off to buy a printer this afternoon for edible Icing Sheets, way too much information and choices. Anyone have a specific newer printer to recommend and I read in a forum (somewhere) last week that it was best to have a 4 or 5 or 6 cartridge printer. Now I can't remember which or where I read it. Plus all the sheets seem to be in the $28.00 range, can't we buy directly from the manufacturer for a better price? Claudette

Icingimages as well as Linda McClure recommended the cannon MP560 and I love it. I don't think you can buy from a manufacturer unless you are a wholesaler and buy very large quantities.

Please consider the cost first....I have had my EI printer for 6 months now and just threw it out..Yup..It was broken beyond repair and I spent well over $400.00 Canadian to buy the printer,inks,icing sheets and now all wasted...

I realize than many have had success with EI printing and I'm not trying to take away from that I am just saying that is can be a huge investment and if you don't plan to use it often etc...It may not be worth it.

Thanks Busy , that's not nice, Hopefuly you can sell your supplies. My everyday suppier for the printed sheets has had her printer for several years (and isn't saying which one) and says she's had no problem. If you do have a lot of stuff maybe it might be worth one more crack at a new printer and, according to what I've read , if not a big user, keep the printer heads in an airtight container for the weeks when not using them. Tiger Direct .com has realy great prices and mine, in London Ontario, is having a Grand opening this weekend so I'm hoping for an even better deal. Claudette
