Question about setting up my new ip3600 edible image printer

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
I just purchased a Canon ip3600 printer for edible images on Amazon. I also purchased the edible inks and edible paper from Icing Images. I am ready to set it up. So do I follow the regular printer set up substituting the edible ink cartridges for the regular ink, or do I need to do something special?

Thanks,
Brooke

Also, I bought the 2.5" precut circle image sheets. Is there a template/software anywhere that helps with the printing?

Thanks again,
Brooke

Hi Brooke....

I have purchased the IP4700 Canon printer. LOVE it!!!! Follow the instructions that come with the printer to the T. However, instead of inserting the regular ink, insert the food coloring ink. Kopykake.com has a free program that you can download to your computer. This program will let you print on frosting sheets. It also helps you edit your pictures. I also purchased my ink and sheets from them.

This is my first cake that I used the edible images on....

Hi
Actually there are a few things you should do. After you put in your edible inks, go in to the printer properties. Go in to your printer properties, Select the maintenance tab. Under "custom settings" Click on Prevent paper abrasion. This will open the rollers a bit for you. Every time you print it will pop up stating that you have it set this way and you can click "ok" to go beyond this. Also, set your paper settings to "matte" photo paper.

You can use any software program you like to design your image. But when you go to print, there is a printing program that we have. You should have received a document giving you the printing program directions and where to get it for free. If you did not, just email me directly and we will forward it to you.

Thanks

Hi Guys,

I use an awesome free program called Edible Artist.

I find it *much* better than the Kopycake one.

Cheers,
David

Edible Artist is great but won't line up exactly with the circles from icingimages. I use the program from icingimages and it works great.

what's the trick to getting realistic images? Everything I print has a green cast to it and is far from photo quality. Even my black looks green (Canon ip3600). UGH
