I have it and use if for logos and photos. I chose to get a printer on my own, and then ordered the software USB. I ordered the sheets and USB from Tomric. It works well, but the software could be better. Better editing and sizing options would be helpful. I have one scalloped round mold that the software doesn't have an option for. So, I choose the rectangle and it lines up almost perfect with it.
This is a logo from the caterer I work for. I always airbrush over the image with white cocoa butter to keep the colors true and to have it show up on dark chocolate. Yeah, unfortunately, printers don't print in white. I tried molding with white chocolate, and for some things it works without the white. I used a photo of my cat, and molded with a layer of white chocolate behind the photo. It worked better because she's Siamese and the more golden color looked more like her coloring.
I did it with white cocoa butter and she was washed out. So, it just depends on the image. And Jackie, you can just brush a thin layer of cocoa butter on the sheet with a brush or sponge as long as the printed image is dry. I did that for a more streaked appearance on a logo I did for Infiniti don't have a photo unfortunately. It's not as solid as the photo above though. If you're familiar with design software like Photoshop or Illustrator to name just 2 you can completely skip the clunky and expensive Deco software!
All you need are the transfers from Tomric plus the edible inks from kopykake. I use the Canon ip and it works quite well. Of course you have the white issue, but that can be circumvented by using white chocolate for your prints or spraying a white background with either white cocoa butter or white edible ink.
Just did some VW logos for our local club and they looked great. Wasted much money. I've heard other issues with the sheets, which could have just been the batch.

I still have the first original batch I ordered, so I don't know if another one would give me problems. I don't have any secret trick, it's all been hit or miss when I first started using these. I just spray the cocoa butter the same for anything else I do. I have used them without the cocoa butter and they worked, but I felt the image wasn't as bright as with the white.
This shows without, but the logo is white, and this is way is too yellow from the white chocolate. But, this photo is of my cat, and the white chocolate works better than white cocoa butter because it's her blond color:. They are the ones that developed it. I was going to order the sheets from them until I found that Tomric sold them.
I've never had any trouble with the printer clogging. I liked them better because the came with the chips that the Canon printers have, and I didn't have to move chips between cartridges. I can still have problems occasionally, but it's mostly been from the cocoa butter not being the right temp or something.

I've attached 2 photos of chocolate business cards made at the same time. I used Chocolate World molds that have the metal backing. The metal gets much too cold and I have to heat the metal up so that the white chocolate will adhere to the image and not chill too quickly. I prefer the molds that www. They carry magnetic molds with the polycarbonate backing which I like much better because they don't get so cold.
One card is using the Deco Artist via Tomric chocosheets. The Cake Art sheets are thicker and have different ingredients than the Deco Artist. The Deco Artist sheets are very thin. I find that when using Deco Artist sheets for larger prints thus any transfer that has a larger surface area, these sheets show their imperfections. When using the small 12 - 15 gram molds, these sheets are okay because it is harder to see the imperfections. So, on large images such as the business cards molds or the large ovals made by chocolate world, then it is better to use Cake Art Intl.
The Deco Artist sheets do make a beautiful transfer image. I have made some amazing customized pictures with them.
But use them only for smaller transfers. You must make sure that the metal backing molds on your 2 piece molds are warmed to within a few degrees of your chocolate temperature There is an American supplier and when I did my research the price was cheaper to order from England. The American reseller did say that she prefers to sell the larger sized sheet than the smaller because it works transfers much better even though they say that the sheets are exactly the same except for size. After having used both sizes of sheets, I agree with her, the larger size sheet works much better.
I trim the sheet and save the scraps for when I have to make some individual transfer images. Hopefully this helps with. Icing Images is one of the places that I purchase the ink from. Photofrost was another. I have had trouble with Photofrost and have not purchased from them for quite some time and they have not given me the routine phone call asking if I need to place an order which tells me they know good and well they were in the wrong.
And of course that is why I don't receive any sales calls from them anymore!! Icing Images and Photofrost and Kopykake to name a few sell many many different varieties of edible ink cartridges to fit a variety of printers. If you are looking to a printer you could even call Icing Images and they would be very helpful on what they think a good printer would be. They do sell chocosheets but the sheets are very poor quality. One last note: The business card image was scanned from an actual business card. Had I received an original jpeg or png image it would be even nicer..
I was not sure so I left it. Now I think I am interested again. I need to go and read everything here and my notes from Belgiumagain. I do have some questions, but it is 1 am here and I am too tired to think. WIll be back 2moro,thank you all for all the great info. The software came with no instructions as to how to download it on to the computer and connect it up to the free software off the internet from Deco, just a flash stick and that is all. In fact, all that is on the flash stick is a pin number that allows you to access the software you have already downloaded. When you plug it into the computer, nothing shows up on your screen, at least not on my Mac.
It is very confusing and had to go to my computer tech to set it up. I have yet to start printing transfers and from what I can tell, I will have to have to work it out myself by trial and error.
I do not mind if the end product is what I am after. The blank transfer sheets I bought from Chocolate World were made by Callebaut and are lightly coated with cacao butter. I also purchased the cacao butter filled ink cartridges from Chocolate World. Has anyone used either of these two products? The info in this discussion is very useful and greatly appreciated.
I plan to test drive my Deco system this week, will share my results I think it runs only on PC's, not the Macs. Anyone can download the software directly from the website, but they will not be able to print without the flash stick. Does the packaging on the transfer sheets say they are a Callebaut product?
That comes as a surprise to me if Callebaut is making transfer sheets. It is an online-based edible icing software that allows you to create beautiful edible designs, images, photos and more onto edible icing sheets used to decorate cakes, cupcakes and other edible items.
