Wondering if anyone who uses an edible printer has the same problem as me...

When my Cannon IP65000 prints, the colours come out much darker than on my photoshop screen.

I have been looking into ICC profiles, I see that when you buy an edible printer that some companies will give you a custom icc profile for printing on the edible sheets.


Does anyone know how I can do this? Or what I need to do to make my colours match?


Many Thanks

I had this problem also with the Canon edible printer - wasted edible paper can be costly! To get around this I would FIRST print  out a copy of the picture on PLAIN COPYING PAPER.....then adjust the colour tones where necessary. For example RED or PINK seemed to be the main mismatch!!! Once I am happy with the results,,,,,and only then, will print on the edible paper.


I am not familiar with the CCI profiles with any printer.....you learn something new everyday, which is what I love about the community on Cake Central.


Hope this helps!
