Q: What kind of warranty are on these printers? How long has this printer been available? how easy is it to get ink and how long does the ink last?
I do not see any reviews on this printer hard to tell if it is good or not
A: Our printers come with six month warranty. We have been selling the CW8 for about a year now, and is our best quality printer available for purchase. It uses the 250/251 ink cartridge sets. It is hard to determine how long ink can last because each print is unique, and uses different array of colors. The more vivid and colorful the image, the more ink it will use, but they are large cartridges and hold plenty of ink to satisfy and not disappoint. Simply go to our edible cartridges tab on our website and select the Canon ink cartridges. The 250XL/251XL cartridge set can be purchased for 59.99. It is certainly our best printer and the 349.99 price reflects that.
*One thing to note is that this is a Wide Format printer, meaning it can fit larger icing sheets for larger prints.
