Question about edible ink printers? - Page 4

post #46 of 60

I just ordered the canon PIXMA MG5420, which toners should I purchase? I went to Icingimages website, but I didn't find toners for this specific printer. :/

 

Thank you. :D

Al what I can tell is this:

 

Just a week a go we have had an new customer with a story. They are making and printing on icing rice paper for sale. They have been using as a first printer some Italian convert of  Canon MG 5xxx printer. After some times that printer field so they bought same new Canon MG. And the next one in couple of months. In one year they trashed all together  1+ 2 printers.

 

So they finally decide to try something different. And we offered them our convert of Canon iP 1900 + CISS + our edible ink for cca USD 150.

 

So what are her impression? First of all they screw the first Canon iP 1900 we sent them. These thing are very had to send by mail to someone that is not skill with this thing that something does not got wrong.. Then they come in person for service. We gave her one other Canon iP 1900 + CISS. +Honey Brilliant Ink. And now after two weeks she is completely shocked how this small beast is working. No need to refill. And she is fascinated how colors are vivid and brilliant. 

 

Then we checked theirs Canon MG xxxx. Yes theirs print head have been clogged  and ink tank should be replaced regularly. So it is the most important what kind of ink you are using. And it should be tested and verified exactly on particular printer. That is why we saying: >> take that Canon iP 1900 package because everything is optimized .and proven.

 

Hope this helped you in some way.

Just a note: my new edible printing vendor, the one I went to for this year's Leland Award cake, seems to be using either your media, or something very similar, and I would not have believed it had I not seen, handled, and used it: it doesn't seem to care one way or another whether it's pre-chilled before application. Before application, it seems to have a toughness that the DecoPac media doesn't have, enough toughness that I was a bit concerned about what it would be like on the cake. (Especially after eating a bit of the trimmings, to see what they were like: unmounted, they had a much more paper-like mouth-feel than the DecoPac media.)

Now, when I'm working with a new edible printing vendor, I make sure that MY piece of the cake is one with edible printing on it; if there's anything there that would make anybody sick, I want to make sure I have firsthand knowledge of it. But in this case, I also paid close attention to the mouth-feel, and once the edible printing had had a few hours to fuse to the frosting, the paper-like mouth-feel of the unmounted media was completely gone.

And of course, one cannot over-emphasize the first two rules of edible printing:
1. You do not run non-edible inks in your edible printer.
2. You DO NOT run non-edible inks in your edible printer.
(And you still don't talk about Fight Club -- one of these days, I've got to actually see that movie. Along with Snakes on a Plane. I keep alluding to them; I ought to have firsthand knowledge of what I'm alluding to.)

Debbie is the Canon MG5420 comparable to the 5320? I'm looking to get a new printer and the 5320 is tough to find locally.

Are their different types of Canon MG 5320? I have seen some with the screen in the front and others with the screen on the side.

I think you are looking at pictures of the Canon MG5320 and the MG5220 or the MG5420.The screen placement is different for each one of these models.

Any updates to the printer types (spongless) since this last posting?  I'm looking to purchase my 1st printer. I'm sure there are newer models available since 11/2013.

and apparently from what I have googled, you need sponge free cartridges to avoid potential bacteria

Hi Vicki,

If you have a sponged cartridge, your ink must have some sort of alcohol to prevent bacteria.  The trick to good ink however is the formula should not have too much alcohol.  There has to be a good balance.  Too much alcohol can cause premature printhead burnout.  Finally, the addition of a alcohol based ingredient in the inks helps to keep the edible inks from changing colors after you have printed.  What I would recommend since all brands of edible inks vary is to go by recommendations from peers or look at the prints, order prints from various companies to see how vibrant the colors are.  Please let me know if I can be of further assistance!
