I recently bought an epson printer which kopykake told me was ok. I spent $75 on edible ink from them only for it not to work in the printer. I also purchased the paper and you all know its very expensive for both. After hours of being coached on the phone from the epson people and kopykake, I had to return them both and pay a restocking fee even though kopykake told me the wrong printer to purchase. Can anyone tell me what they use (item #) and where to buy the most reasonable supplies?

I ordered the canon pixma 3500 from ebay for $30 with shipping brand new and then ordered the edible ink from kopycake for around $50 and the paper for $28. It was all below $150 and it works great!!!! The only thing that confused me is that I had to move microchips from the regular ink cartridges to the edible ink cartridges. Once I figured out how to do this, it went smoothly.

HI. So sorry to hear you had bad luck with the kopykake products and epson printer. My experience was the opposite. They worked well for me using the canon epson stylus C88+. I did initially have trouble with the black ink cartridge leaking as I had a very small amount of the tape film remaining over the vent hole and I did not see it. You really have to make sure you get all that tape off of there. They quickly sent me another for free. I found that their customer service was great. They really want to help you to get things up and running. Good luck in the future.

Do you still have the printer? If so you can buy refillable ink cartridges to fit it on ebay and buy the refill kit from kopykake so you can use it. If you're interested I will look up the supplier on ebay for you.

No I returned the printer to office max. They only took it back because they saw the original ink and photo access were not open. Im interested in buying from wherever because I need it asap. Baskin robbins charges $15 and my teacher charges $10 plus tax.
