So I need to do some printing - no getting around that.

In hopes of being a little more fiscally conservative, I’m thinking of getting an edible cartridge and using it with sugar sheets on my mom’s new HP printer.  It’s as yet unused.

Does anyone know of cartridges are interchangeable between printers?  I’m sure I’ll get one just not straight away.

If anyone has a favorite printer, please let me know. My head is swimming with comparison shopping!

On the rare occasion that I use edible images, I have them printed by the ladies in the deli at Walmart.  Very reasonable.

I have always used Canon printers. As long as you buy ink cartridges that are made for the printer you have, they work fine. Make sure it is only used for food. You cannot switch between edible and regular ink. The printers are pretty reasonable nowadays, the ink price is what will hurt.

The only other one I've seen for food is Epson, but I have never used them. I don't know if edible cartridges are made for Hp.
