you must have a dedicated printer that is used only for edible ink, you can not interchange it with regular ink. Icing Images and Kopykake are 2 suppliers that come to mind. Or if you don't want to invest in the equipment, many supermarkets or ice cream shops will print a photo for you on an edible sheet (as long as it is not a copyrighted image) and then you place it right on top of the fondant.

You actually only want to consider purchasing a system if you are printing at least once per week. Otherwise, it really isnt worth it. There are many people who sell just the images on ebay. Some local grocery stores may print them for you as well.

If you have a cake supply store in town they can do it for you. We have two cake supply stores one charges 10.00 and the other 12.50. I made a Raiders helmet and needed the logo so I had them print four logos on one sheet. I figured I would at least be able to get two cakes out of one sheet. Sugarcraft can do it for you. There are also some stores on Ebay that offer this service.
