To qualify for guaranteed NEXT DAY turnaround,
URGENT / RUSH ORDERS: You may submit a same day delivery print request and TEXT me right after, however, I can not guarantee that I can always make it on a short notice. But if I can, I will do my best to help you. Be ready to stay in touch, respond to emails quickly and make payment fast so I have the time to do the print and make it available for pick up before 9:00 pm or leave it on the door if the weather permits.
DOOR PICK-UP: As usual, during warmer months of May through September only, I do offer to leave finished prints on my door (always in heat-sealed plastic envelopes) for you to pick up at any time of the day or night.

FREE services, applicable to 1-2 images per page only

- Ask me to crop or resize your image to exact print size.
Specify the shape and size you need when ordering your print.
Please note, that I can stretch or enlarge the image you provide only if it is large enough to be printed without loss of print quality. I will notify you if that is possible when I review your uploaded image.
Additional services – Multiple images per page placement and additional text
If you are willing to place more than one image per page and/or add some text and you don’t know how to safely do it yourself, I would be more than happy to help you for a small fee.
The fee is applied once to create a file, and then you can order as many printed copies of it as you need.
Cupcake or cookie toppers set: you can send me the images for your cupcake or cookie toppers, specify the size and shape (round or rectangular), and I will crop and adjust them to the desired shape and size and place as many copies on the same page as the printable area would safely allow. Please, specify your request in the comments area.
- $10 per file – Up to two (2) images cropped to the desired size and multiplied on a single page up to as many times as max. printable area safely allows.
- $15 per file – 3-12 images cropped to the desired size and placed on a single page up to as many times as max. printable area safely allows.
- 13 images per single page/file and up – $15 PLUS $1 per each additional image.
- Add a line of text (like “Happy Birthday”) on a single image – $3 for a single full-page or single circle-cropped image.
- Add a line of same text on some or all images on a multiple-image page (like a set of cupcake toppers) – $3 per first cupcake topper text PLUS $1 per each additional copy of it on other images.
All multiple-image prints are made on a regular sheet of edible paper, they would NOT be pre-cut. You can use scissors, blades or paper punches to cut multiple images.
SUGGESTED CUPCAKE CIRCLE SIZES
Please see the examples below. Download any size PDF template, print, cut and decide which size fits your design better. You can also ask for any other circle size if suggested sizes don’t work for you. Just specify it in your request and I will create the file for you.
EDIBLE PAPER INFO AND SPECIFICATIONS
Return to Table of contents
ICING SHEETS / FROSTING SHEETS are made of 2 layers: a flexible sugar icing layer and a non-stick easy to peel backing paper. They can be applied to all types of cakes, cupcakes, cookies, chocolate, Sugarveil®, fondant, blown sugar, etc. The paper is opaque, dense and white enough to print photographs with clean and crisp image quality* (*please, note that quality of any print greatly depends on source file resolution.)
When an edible image is placed over a dark background, it is less likely for the background color to show through the image if it is printed on a dense Icing Sheet. Wafer paper is more translucent and any colored background will affect the image easily.
WAFER / RICE PAPER is a thin translucent sheet of dehydrated potato starch, water, and vegetable oil. It is mostly used for some very specific cake decorating purposes. If you have never tried using it, please look for tips and application methods online here >>>
If you are placing your image straight on to the fondant or buttercream surface, for best results I recommend using Icing Sheets only unless you know what you are doing very well.
Heavy ink saturation will result in wafer paper warping and edge curling, therefore it is best to use it for very light graphic images only (mostly text, line, and contour, not flooded with color too much).
Here are a couple cakes I have created with prints on wafer paper to create 3D butterflies and leaves (just as a wafer paper application example):
All edible inks and paper are Kosher and FDA Approved*
*as per manufacturer labels
Image size and resolution
Edible Icing sheet / Frosting sheet printable area is 7.67″ x 10.23″ (195mm x 260mm)
Max circle diameter is 7.67″ (195mm)
Edible Rice paper / Wafer paper printable area is 7.67″ x 10.62″ (195mm x 270mm)
Image size examples for decent quality print from a web source:
1024 x 768 px – is large enough for half-page area
1920 x 1200 px – is large enough for a full page
Acceptable file formats are PDF and JPG, the max. file size is 10 MB.
Please, make sure all your printable files are at the highest resolution possible to achieve best results, 300 dpi will produce the highest print quality.
If using personal pictures, send the largest files you have.
If you found an image on the web, keep in mind that the larger the size, the better it will print. Try finding an image of 1000kb or larger in file size.
Hint: google for computer screen “wallpaper” in the desired theme, as those images are usually larger than most web clipart or other pictures.
Please, note that proportions of some images may require a bit of cropping to fit on the max safe printable area if you wish to fill it completely.
Images that require additional re-scaling (print size adjustment)
Don’t know how to prepare your files for print? No problem! Attach your file and let me know what size you want your image to be printed. This service is FREE!
Ask for multiple images per page placement Additional Service if you need it.
Images that do not require print size adjustment (no re-scale actual size print)
If you send me your own ready to print PDF file of the right print size, I really don’t care how many images you fit onto it (example: cupcake toppers – you may fit several circles onto 1 page and send me your ready to print file as no re-scale print request.)
The PDF image you provided will be printed at exact size you created it without re-scaling, so please make sure your files are at the right print size and that all images on the page DO NOT EXCEED printable area of the paper you choose.
HOW TO GET BEST PRINTABLE FILES FROM THE INTERNET:
Please read carefully before placing your order.
Generally, the print quality I provide is great because I do take time to maintain and calibrate my edible printing device. But please note that due to edible ink being “food coloring ink”, some colors may not print with exactly same shades as they appear on the source image file. This is a known issue with all edible print systems and considered being normal.
Black food coloring is made using many colors, as a result, any areas with grey shading can sometimes have a blue, green or purple hue to them, although I do my best in printer calibration to avoid or at least minimize such effect whenever possible and it almost never happens. This will be more apparent in black and white photos. Colors like blue, green, red, yellow, orange, pink and purple print well but may not be exact matches.
COLOR PROOFS: Edible ink will not print exactly the same as a regular printer. I certainly understand that some clients may be particular about color when it comes to their logos. I recommend in these cases that you order 1 color proof print page so you can see a physical sample before placing a large edible print order. All proofs are printed on regular non-edible white printing paper using edible inks so you can see the colors output before placing a large order on icing sheets.
