Hi, and welcome to cc. I purchased my Canon from Staples a few months back, cost with a warranty was less than $100, it is a Pixma i3600. If you go online to, that site is a great place to start for everything you will need to get started. Just FYI, if you use a new printer for edible image printing, you can never switch it over to regular ink, or your heads will get messed up with unedible ink. There are lots of great posts here about this topic, just do a search and you can read about more important stuff. Good luck.


P.S. I would go first to the above mentioned site and look at their complete list of printers they carry ink for, maybe you can pick one up cheaper at Wallyworld. Just a thought!
