In this writing I will answer some frequently asked questions about what is required to print on pastels.
1.Kopy Kake Kopyjet system requirements are:
Pentium 133 Mhz processor or higher 64 MB of RAM (64 MB recommended) 16-bit graphics card or higher 2X speed CDROM or Microsoft Windows 95/98/Millennium Edition/XP Enhanced 160 MB of accessible hard disk space
2. Which printers work with the Kopy Kake Kopyjet technique?
Many models of CANON and EPSON printers can be used with edible inks.
The list changes from time to time, so it’s a good idea to check with us before you buy your ink tanks.
3. Is the Kopyjet system NSF certified?
According to the STATE OF CALIFORNIA DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH SERVICES, National Sanitation Foundation International (NSF) warranty 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, governing the use of an inkjet printer in food preparation. Therefore, as confirmed in the California Uniform Retail Food Establishment Act, approval for the use of an inkjet printer for food preparation remains at the county level in California and likely at state level in additional regions.
Based on this information, there are no national or international health standards or documentation currently designed for an inkjet printer.
Please note the following points: All icing and ink ingredients are FDA permitted, all materials that come in contact with the edible portion of the merchandise, backing paper, ink cartridges, cartridge filler, and Printer rollers are FDA approved.
4. Are my Kolor Kartridges and Frosting Sheets FDA and EEC accepted?
5. Are Kolor cartridges and icing sheets kosher?
Kolors and icing sheets are Kosher approved.
6. Can a Macintosh system be used with the Kopyjet system?
Yes. If you use a USB printer and scanner, you can print edible images with a Macintosh. However, you must provide your own Macintosh-compatible photo-editing software.
7. Why does the system run so slowly?
Regardless of the processor speed of a working laptop or computer, if the computer’s RAM is ever full, the processing time will slow down considerably. Saturation of available RAM is often the result of a large image being made while using too much resolution when scanning. The higher the resolution, the larger the image file. For example, an 8.5″ x 11″ color photo scanned at 75 dpi is approximately 1.6 megabytes (MB). Doubling the resolution to 150 dpi will increase the file size four times, to approximately 6.3 MB. Going to 300dpi will increase the file size to 26.2MB!
What you need to do then is choose the lowest possible resolution that will still give you satisfactory image quality so that you can keep the file size manageable. The suggestion is not to go above 200 dpi unless you need the particular resolution and are knowledgeable about image processing.
