Here's a link to a good resource:

I bought the Canon ip3600, and I like it. What I've learned so far is:

 

1) Get cartridges that you can both refill, and that have auto-resetting micro-chips, so that you can actually use the cartridges once you refill them. I get mine from inkedibles.com

 

2) Get good edible paper. There are better brands than Lucks - try KopyKakes or the stuff from inkedibles. No matter the brand though, keep them sealed in the package they come in, and they won't dry out.

 

Good Luck!
