OK, I have had my new printer still in the box, for several months now, but I am ready to take the plunge and buy icing sheets and ink for my Edible Ink endeavor. I have searched and read several posts and sites, and have found two companies that I am intrigues with.
The first is icingimages.com
The second is inkedibles.com
Both companies do about the same thing, carry almost the same thing, but inkedibles also carries chocolate transfer sheets. I can print on the sheets and then transfer the image to a thin layer of melted chocolate and then when it dries, cut it into whatever I need to and apply it.
I like this idea.
I also have literally, 1000's of images, clipart, fonts and backgrounds that I can use as well, and an awesome program on my computer that will allow me to take a background on my computer, and change it into this, as shown in the picture.
I used to make customized candy wrappers and personalized party favors, for 12 years, and have invested ALOT of money in it, so I can incorporate it into my cake decorating.
My question to you cc'ers is- in your opinion, which icing sheet do you prefer from which company?
I am interested in the Lucks brand on icingimages site, and the frosting sheets from inkedibles
Is one sheet more flexible than the other?
How long after printing does the ink usually set?
Any help is appreciated.
