I just looked at the list of compatible printers on the above site or www.kopykake.com and bought one off of ebay that was new and still in the box (normal ink never ran through it). Then ordered the coresponding ink.
I got a Epson- C88

Try www.kopykake.com They sell ink for the Canon models. If you buy a new Canon iP3000 off eBay and inks from Kopykake, it'll cost closer to $200 for everything.

I've been considering buying a set up too. I know of two sites, one of which I can't remember the name of because I'm at work right now, and don't have access to my stuff. One of the sites is Walkers http://www.cake-decorating-supply.com/index.asp. But I think this site only gives you cartridges, and not printers. The other site offers the whole set up for around $275.00 to $375.00, printer, paper, and cartridges. I think if you could find the proper printer, the printers themselves are not that expensive. It the food coloring cartridges that cost. I will post the name of the other site when I get home and locate it. Better get back to work now!

I bought the epson c88+ at staples for 79.99 w/ a $15 rebate, got the ink from Kopykake. Works Great.

I got a Cannon Pixma ip1500 from ebay for $25. It was new and the box had never been opened. Then I ordered the food color cartridges and refill kits from kopycake. That is also where I got my frosting sheets. I have had mine for over a year now. With no problems.

I just purchased an Epson CX3810 and KopyKakes ink cartridges. The printer brand new was only $69.00 with the rebate!
