If you go to inkedibles.com they have a cannon 3600 photo printer for about $150. I found the same one on amazon for $75 brand new. I just ordered my ink cartrideges from ink edibles and I absolutely love it. You can also get wafer paper from there also. Hope this helps out!

All edible inks aren't made equally. I highly recommend icingimages for ink (gold label inks) and frosting sheets (premium sheets). I've used several brands and theirs are the best in my opinion.

I just bought a Canon MG5220 for $65 at Walmart and edible inks and paper from icingimages.com. I'm VERY happy with how nice the photos turned out! I printed out my first photos today and they look just like regular photos, but with a matte finish!! I totally recommend icing images!

Tiggy2 is exactly right, I would go with icingimages.com all the way. If you choose to buy a printer on sale somewhere (I have the Canon IP3600 and I love it) realize that the EI cartridges will void your warranty. The full price printers from icingimages are warrantied by them.

Thanks for the feedback on our products Jackie. As for printers to use for edible ink, note that the price of Canon printers has been fluctuating quite a bit in the last few months as supply has been affected through Canon, but any printer under $100 is a great price for just the printer, usually they are around $150 or more just for the printer. But as some pointed out, Walmart did have a real good deal for a while on a couple of Canon models. Wherever you buy your printer - remember to always dedicate a printer for edible inkjet printing, do not use a printer that you also use for regular ink printing, so that you don't contaminate the edible ink.

Canon MG 5220, and definately use Icing Images. I only deal with them.

They give you great support. I just had a minor problem with mine and they talked me through it and everything worked out fine.

They are very friendly and their products are the best.

Check Wal-Mart online. That's where I bought mine in January and only paid $60.00.

WeezyS, I have the same printer and love it! I had a problem though when I refilled one of my cartidges. It wouldn't recognize it and my printer was completely out of comission. I had to order a new one. I notice on the directions for the refills it says "Chip will only reset when the message for ink being out appears". I'm thinking I need to wait for this message before refilling. Have you had any issues like this? Thanks!

Hi Lisa,
I haven't refilled yet, so really haven't had any real issues to deal with yet. But thanks for the infor and if it happens I'll know what to do. thumbs_up.gif

I have the Canon MG5300 series and use ink4cake inks. for some reason my pictures come out with the brown and yellow tones instead of the regular picture.

Am I doing something wrong ?
