I have kopykake sheets and tasty foto art cartridges, using the canon ip3600. Same thing when I was using kopykake/kopykake. Images are always hazy looking, never photo quality. They're not too bad on rice paper... but yuck, I wanna use frosting sheets. icon_smile.gif

I've tried several brands of frosting sheets and ink cartridges and have had the best luck with the gold label cartridges and premium frosting sheets from icingimages.

The Canon ip3600 is it the photo one. So you can purchase this at staples or walmart? If so, I see one at staples for $79. That is a good deal.

Well, after three years without an edible image system I finally hopped back on the wagon. Just got my printer yesterday and my inks today so here we go. I hopped online to search what paper setting I should put my printer on and found this thread. Thank you CC family for asking all the right questions and for answering them. Hope it works! Here we go!!!

i have an ip3600 printer and use inkedible edible ink. i have trouble with the red. everything i print comes out looking dark orange orange. is it a common problem for inkedible ink or is there another edible ink with better quality/

Remember NEVER put regular ink into a printer for edible ink.  Start a brand new printer with the edible ink cartridges and follow the printer setup in its manual.

 

Printing that comes out too green or too red means that there is something wrong with:

 

--colour settings (check your printer manual for how to test)

 

--print head (do a head clean cycle and then check on a piece of writing paper)

 

--cartridges (check that all seal plugs are tight in their holes, and some lower quality cartridges leak in use)

 

If it is the print head on a new printer, you have a warranty.  You will have to replace the edible ink with the OEM cartridges to return the printer for replacement.  Run the setup/head clean a few times to get the cartridges flowing.

 

If it's the cartridges, contact icingimages.com as they sell the highest quality of refillable cartridges for edible printing. The $$$ is not significant once you factor in the cost of wasted sugar sheets.

 

FYI if you are one of us geeks who uses refillable cartridges for regular printing on another printer, you already know which brands are the best.  Buy an extra set for use as cleaner cartridges.

Thanks Debbie, a couple of tricks I didn't know about.  Have been wondering what I should set my paper setting to.  I have only recently purchased the ip 3600 and I love it.  I just use whatever program takes my fancy at the time.  Publisher, photoshop etc.

HEYYYY most Christian countries just had  a major holy day. People were celebrating with their families and NOT baking cakes. Or reading about problems.

 

Test your printer paper feed with regular writing paper.  There should be instructions with your printer manual, and also online support from  Canon.

 

Once you are sure that you can feed regular writing paper, there are special settings for the sugar sheets because they are thicker.  The instructions are in your printer software "help" section.  Look at www.icingimages.com for more information.

The printer may be trying to pull from the bottom tray rather than the back. Put a regular piece of paper in the bottom try, it iwll probably pull from there. Then through your printer properties, change your settings to have your paper pull from the back tray.

 

Cazza1, Setting are matte paper type and resolution at standard. Be sure to set your paper abraision to the on selection. If you are an Icing Images Customer, you can log in to your account at any time and look at all our instructions and recommendations as well!

 

I hope this helps!!!
