I have the Cannon and purchsed my ink and paper from Icing Images my prints are so vibrant and you just want to eat the whole sheet of paper because it smells so good...I am very happy with the products this was my first time using an edible image printer and the info you get with your order makes it so easy to set up the printer.... Thank you IcingImages.... I am getting ready to order more paper and ink..... I have never had a problem with clogs I just turn my printer on and off every day and print one nozzle check every week if I dont have an image to pring

Samsung company makes it a point that there is a particular product for everyones need or requirement. Some are even portable so it can easily be carried anywhere. Also, both of its products and services are widely available. So many valid reasons why the brand stays on top of Printzone.com.au's preferred product. Samsung printer cartridges at discount prices delivered fast New Zealand wide from Printzone!

Thanks for all the information on spongeless cartridges.  I had never hear of them.  I think I will try them next time around.

Can edible ink be used on regular paper... and how does it hold up?  I'm interested in trying it on my packaging labels, but wanted to ask someone who is familiar with edible inks before I purchase a printer to try this.

Hi!

You can print on regular paper, however, it will not hold up if water gets dripped on it and over time it will fade. But we actually recommend that when customers do not have an image to print, they can print something on regular paper to keep their printer happy!

I am sorry to hear about your Epson. I hope you find success when you are able to switch to  a Canon.

Icicng Images, you have 2 printers on your site for sale. What is the model # of the second one? I didn't see it listed. Also what software comes with them?

post #26 of 59
No I have not been able to. I live in another country. I literally went broke buying the xp-400 in the us and having it shipped internationally as well as clearing it at customs. Costed me a fortune. I am not in a position to buy a more costly printer at this time as it will cost more in all respects

We have our Elite Standalone system which is the MG5320 by Canon and we also have the wide format which is also a Canon the ix6520. Both come with the standard Canon software but you also have access to iPrint which is the printing program used with the sheets.  You can use any graphics programs to create pictures and print them, but if you are printing on the multiple up sheets such as the 2.5" circles then you need iPrint.  You also get 30 days free towards iDesigns which is an online printing pattern printing program that has over 1600 different images that are licensed for edible use.  The program allows you to print seamless patterns for creating bows, ribbons and boarders, but it also allows you to print full designer sheets to be used as is or with electronic cutters as well as the Sweet Accents die cutting and embossing system.  I hoe this helps.

If I already had a compatible printer could I get the required software through you?

post #29 of 59

The software is designed around our icing sheets.  In addition, it was designed for use with a Canon printer, not an Epson. Is your compatible printer already being used with edibles?

The first rule of edible printing is that you do not run non-edible ink in the printer you use for edible printing.

 

The second rule of edible printing is that you do not run non-edible ink in the printer you use for edible printing.

 

(And you still don't talk about Fight Club -- one of these days, I need to actually see that movie, given that I keep alluding to it.)

 

The manufacturer, or a fully equipped rebuilding shop (assuming anybody actually bothers to field-strip and rebuild inkjet printers), might have the parts and tooling to render a printer food-safe after it's been contaminated with non-edible ink, without rendering it permanently afunctional in the process. You do not.

 

Personally, I outsource my edible printing. Mainly because I don't allow inkjet printers in my home, any more than I allow WinDoze in my home.

 

As to software, unless you're getting a turnkey system (like DecoPac's), there shouldn't be anything locking you into using your edible-ink-and-media supplier's software, but if you use, say, Mac Preview, or WinDoze Picture and Fax Viewer (or the equivalent utility supplied with the Linux distro of your choice), you're on your own as far as registering the image on the media, and on any color adjustments that might be necessary.
