In this piece of writing I will answer some Frequently Asked Inquiries regarding what is required to print on cakes.
1.The Kopy Kake Kopyjet system requirements are:
Pentium 133Mhz processor or better 64 megs of RAM (64 meg recommended) 16 bit graphics card or better CDROM 2X speed or improved Microsoft Windows 95/98/Millennium Edition/XP 160 megs of accessible hard drive space
2. What Printers works with the Kopy Kake Kopyjet technique?
Numerous models of CANON and EPSON Printers can be used with the Edible Inks.
The list changes every so often, so it is a good idea to check with us before buying your ink tanks.
3. Is the Kopyjet system NSF certified?
In accordance to the CALIFORNIA STATE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH SERVICES, the National Sanitation Foundation International (NSF) guarantee applications contain the only related standards accredited by ANSI. Also according to the CALIFORNIA STATE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH SERVICES, There are currently no standards, NSF or otherwise, that govern the use of an ink jet printer in food preparation. Therefore, as confirmed within the California Uniform Retail Food Facilities Law, the approval for the usage of an ink jet printer for food preparation remains at no more than the county level in California and probably at the state level in additional regions.
Determined by this information there isn’t a national or international level sanitation standards or documentation currently designed for an ink jet printer.
Please keep in mind the following points: All icing and ink ingredients are FDA permitted, all materials that come in touch with the edible part of the merchandise, backing paper, ink cartridges, cartridge filling plus printer rollers, are FDA approved.
4. Are my Kolor Kartridges and Frosting Sheets FDA and EEC accepted?
5. Are the Kolor Kartridges and Frosting Sheets Kosher?
Kolors and Icing Sheets are Kosher approved.
6. Can a Macintosh system be used using the Kopyjet system?
Yes. If you use a USB Printer and scanner you can print edible images by the macintosh. However you must provide your own macintosh compatible photo editing software.
7. Why is the system running so slowly?
Regardless of a working laptop or computer’s processor speed, if ever the RAM on the computer is full, the processing time will decelerate considerably. The saturation of the available RAM is often the result of a large image manufactured while too much a resolution is used when scanning. The higher the resolution, the bigger your picture file will be. For example, an 8.5″ x 11″ color photograph scanned at 75 dpi takes up about 1.6 megabytes (MB). Doubling resolution to 150 dpi will augment the file size four times – to roughly 6.3 MB. Going to 300 dpi will add to file size to 26.2 MB!
What you need to do then is to pick the lowest possible resolution that still gives you satisfactory image quality so that you can keep file size manageable. The suggestion is to not go any higher than 200 dpi unless you particularly require the resolution and are knowledgeable in image processing.
