ok based on what you just told me, I have some strong words of advice for you. Edible printing is not something you want to take on as a once in a while hobby. An edible printer must be used and used about once a week in order to stay happy. Printers, especially edible printer, must be used regularly if you dont, it wont be awesome, it wont be pain and worry free, you will spend more time maintaining it then not. You must understand if you go the route on printing once a week…something, then you are using ink up regularly, if you go the route of cleaning out your printer and storing everything, you will hate it. Do NOT let anyone tell you differently. I am an expert in edible printing, I test EVERY brand that is out there regularly and consistantly improve on our brand and while I love our brand of inks and icing sheets and I have amazing confidence in our products, they are still ment to be used…. I really do not mean to burst your dreams and wishes, but I want to be sure if you go forward with this product, no matter what the brand, that you understand it completely! Yes…our products are awesome! But, you must understand the way it is intended to be used!
