"I think that tomric might have the software. If not then Chocolat-chocolat in Montreal will have it. Purchasing anywhere within North America is fairly easy and straight forward. It's just as easy to order directly from Deco artist in England.…"

"TS02 directly on the printer. Attached are the settings that I use. If the images are sticking to the sheet (partially) then there is too much ink flow. The settings on the attachment are for any canon printer.If the ink is flowing to much then…"

"These can be used just like any other transfer sheets you would buy  ie. PCB, Chef Rubber etc.  You do need to use a white backing to make your image show. If not the image gets lost in the dark chocolate."

Hi Debra, I'm trying to learn more about cocoa butter printing, computers, and getting customer logos on my chocolates and you seem to be the "go to" person for that.  Would you mind emailing me at rainforestconfections@gmail.com?  I have a ton of questions and limited funds and time to get a proposal worked up  for a corporate account.  I could order them custom made, but I'd rather do it myself.  I went to Tomrics website and couldn't find any information about printer chips or software; could you point me in a directions?  I would really appreciate any help.  Roberta

Thanks Debra, I took your advice and things went a lot better last night. I also watched the videos and picked up on quite a few mistakes I have been making. I really appreciate the trouble you took to help me. I will be tempering and dipping all day and I am sure it is going to go a lot better as I am going to watch a video again before I start.

We just got our electricity back.  All chocolate in coolers.  The building

where I have my chocolate cabinet is fine, but buildings all around went down in historic downtown Washington, NC
