Can anyone help please? I have a Canon MG5350 printer to print icing sheets and for some reason these last few months my sheets have been getting ink leaking onto the edge of the icing sheet - the only thing I've changed is the brand of icing sheet - I used to use KopyKake and now am using Bake Print brand - I've tried cleaning the rollers, the printer head and I make sure I print every week so the ink nozzles don't get clogged up - I've tried everything that people have suggested and its totally driving me nuts haha! Just wondering has anyone else had any experiences with their Canon's? I got mine December last year so the printer is still pretty new? I'm wasting so many sheets to try and get one image printed without all the black stuff leaking out? I don't want to get a new printer but it looks like I might have to? Any suggestions anyone? Would be greatly appreciated?


I should also add that I use CorelDraw X6 to make all my templates and to print from - I use the print settings 'plain paper' and just 'standard' for print quality settings? I've even made a tiny white border around the edge of my templates so my printer doesn't print all the way to the edge as I've experienced problems with the ink getting quite wet on the edge of the sheet making it hard to remove for customers.


I'm also trying to attach a photo to this post so you can see what I'm talking about but for some reason its not letting me I just get this message; AJAX response unable to be parsed as valid JSON object.
