Julia, I didn't really think about the printer cartridges. I assumed that if you had a specific printer - you could only buy a specific cartridge to fit. In my case, I bought a 'combo' package where a set of "Inkedibles" cartridges came with the printer. I was thinking that maybe it was not the best ink - and maybe that was the problem. Maybe if I bought a different brand of ink to refill them - maybe that will help?? I don't know. (that was a lot of maybes)
TheTailoredCookie, I have changed the print setting (multiple times). I have it set to print at the highest quality - and I have noticed that choosing a different paper source does make a difference. (changing it from Matte Photo Paper to High Gloss Paper to Other Photo Paper) But I still can't get the colors anywhere close to what they are suppose to be.
This is all very frustrating because there is so much waste involved. You really can't test the pictures on regular paper - because it will show up differently when printed on the frosting sheets. I don't even want to think about how much money I've wasted printing out test sheets!
