hey everyone! i've read over some of the post for edible image printers but whenever i go to kopykake i get really overwhelmed with all the information. i can't even decide between the epson and canon. this is my first problem. is one really better than another? the epson is $299 for the model they told me about. the canons are less but if i'm going to get one maybe the more expensive one is better.

and then what about the cartridges? some printer models take 4, some 5 and some 6. i guess this is where the price of the printer comes into play. would a printer that uses more cartridges print better quality or should i just look for photo resoultion/dpi stuff?? please, your input here would be very helpful!!!!

hi, I'm not really sure about the different cartridges but I have an epson cx7400 and I get my ink from kopykakes and haven't had any problems . I was also overwelmed with the different types of epsons and cannons. I finally picked this one, it was only 68.00 with shipping included from amazon. it works for what I need so I'm happy with it, so far. hth icon_smile.gif

It'll be cheaper if you buy the parts separately, I paid about $160 for mine...
