Do any of you edible printers have this problem?  I just started a home-based edible printing business.  I bought the appropriate printer, frosting sheets, and ink cartridges.  The colors being printed aren't true to what's on the screen.  I have a lace and burlap image I've been working on for almost a week now (and wasted numerous frosting sheets, there goes my profit!!!), and despite every attempt, it comes out greyish green!

Make sure the settings in the printer are right, sometimes  they print differently if they're printing for photos or for regular documents. Then all you can do is adjust the image in photoshop or whatever program you're using to take into account how it prints. There's always going to be a slight variation between the computer and the printer, but it shouldn't be too much.
