So I have an opportunity to buy a Canon PIXMA iP6000D Photo Printer Plus $175.00 worth edible Ink (from icing images) for $250 (brand new) DO you think its a good deal? Also is this a good printer to get or should i look for something else? I don't do a lot of birthday cakes... Mainly weddings; so not sure how often I will be using it.
Thanks in advance for any input :)
manomi, without knowing where you live it is impossible to say whether this is a good deal or not.
I am in California, US.. Is the price different in different states?
That printer model is on Amazon for $369. Sure you've got the right model number? If so, then, yes, that's a good deal.
Yes, I just copy pasted the model number. Thanks LEah...Is it a good printer as far as edible printers go?
Manomi I couldn't possibly know if the price is different from state to state but what you need to keep in mind is that this site is frequented by people from all over the world, not just the US, and so the price can vary enormously from country to country.
I bought a edible printer a few years ago and spent about that much (or a bit more) on the printer, ink and paper thinking it would be a good investment so I wouldn't have to order edible pictures anymore and it should be cheaper for me in the long run. The printer worked great and gave pictures so I was happy with it. The only problem is that I rarely ever used it so I have never gotten my initial investment out if it. And the longer you don't use it the more work you have to do on it to keep it clean and not let any ink dry and mess it up. Now I don't use it at all because it has become so much trouble and I just order any edible pictures I need which again is just not that many. So if you plan to use it often that I would say it would be a great buy and go for it. If you don't plan to use it often then I would say it will turn out to be a waste of money.
Thanks reginaherrin! Great advise..I think I'd just stick to ordering online if I ever need one..Do you use icing images for that?
I used to use them but luckily now there is a cake supply store that I go to that will print up any picture on site which I am so happy about.
