Best Edible Image Printer? - Page 2

post #16 of 32

HI Minnie,

While the 5320 is my favorite printer and we do sell it, we do have cartridges for the newer series Mg5420 printer as well.

Before buying a printer, please check with our office to make sure it is not something we can help you with.

Hi, Debbie.

Just took a look at your website. Can you tell me a little bit about the performance of the Canon wide format in comparison to the 5320?

Is the main difference the paper capacity or is there also a difference in the output of the image?

Your posts on this thread have been super helpful.

Many thanks!

Hi,

The 5320 prints up to 8.5x14" when it is hooked up to the computer.  It only prints up to 8.5x11 when it is used like a copier with out the computer. It is a wireless printer as well.  The wide format prints the large sheets that are A3, it does not have a scan bed.  So if you need the large sheets, that is the only reason to invest in the wide format, otherwise you will be happy with the Elite 5320.  The quality is equal between both printers.  Please let me know if you have any questions and we will be more than happy to help us.  You are always welcome to call and we will be glad to help you.

Thank you

Hi Debbie,

I am in the market for an edible ink compatible printer. I noticed you carry inks for the 5320 and the 5420. I am wondering whether those inks will work with any CL250/251 regular ink printer or only with the aforementioned printers. Also do you happen to have inks for the 8820 or 6220? It seems real difficult to find the older printers which use the sponge less inks. Do you have any suggestions on current affordable models?

Thank you so much for all the info you share on this board.

The current series printers use the 250/251 cartridges. and while our cartridges will work with any printer that uses those, be careful because we don't carry a gray. We only carry the two black, cyan and magenta.  Those cartridges do have an inner sponge.  The printers that use the series cartridges that have no inner sponge are harder to find. We have about 5 left of the mp5320 which I love.  THe ix6520 also works and is still rather easy to find.  I hope this helps.

where is the best place to purchase an edible printer?

post #23 of 32

It kind of depends on you.  You can go out and purchase the printer from a local retailer and buy the supplies separately like from a company like ours.  Or you can purchase Edible printing kits from a company like ours.  It does cost a bit more, but we warranty the printer with the edible inks.  If you go on your own, please make sure that before you purchase the printer on your own that you get a printer that is compatible. We recommend Canon products because of the removable printhead.  Also, the newer printers have bottom tray feeders and some icing sheets do not work well with them.  Our icing sheets are flexible and withstand cracking more than other brands making it work better with those type of printers.  Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you

Our iPrint program is free for all our customers and works with our Premium Icing Sheets.  If you are not using our brand of icing sheets, there is an application on iPrint that works with ANY brand of icing sheets and is MAC compatible.  iPrint can be found on our website.

Hi Icing Images,

 

I'm looking into purchasing a canon printer, recommended by you, but I have one question.  The printer packages you sell all come with sponge ink cartridges, but reading through your thread posts on this site, you do not recommend the sponges cartridges saying that there are many issues with them clogging and other issues.  You recommend going spongless.  So why do you sell the printer package with the sponged cartridges.  I'd like to purchase but am leary now.

Thank you,

Kathy
