Description

Please, read before check out –


Your image/photo will be printed to fit the maximum printable area size of 7.8″ x 10.3″

Image placement options explained:

  • Fit to maximum printable area and crop overhang: your image is stretched until its width is 7.8″. If your image is narrow, some parts of it (the length) are going to overhang (exceed the printable area). Those overhang areas would not be visible (lost, gone, cropped-out), but what you get is exactly a 7.8″ x 10.3″ image filling the entire part of the printable area.
  • Fit to maximum printable area without cropping: your image is stretched until its height is 10.3″. You will see the entire image as it is on your file, no lost parts. White areas may present on the left and right of your image and you can not predict the exact width of such image (it depends on image proportions).
  • I have a ready to print PDF – print as is: I just check if all of your images inside PDF are within the printable area and print it without changing any size.
  • Custom size: resize/crop my image: I resize your image to the size you want. Maximum size is 7.8″ x 10.3″. You can indicate exact width and height and then your image will be cropped to this exact size, or tell me that exact width or exact height is a priority and I will not crop out any parts of your image.

File types accepted: PDF, JPG, PNG

  • I will review all submitted files before printing and contact you if you need to email me a larger file for descent print quality. Please, check Image/File tips tab above.
  • I will email you a proof of any layout/alteration/design work before printing.

Designer fees +
Designer fees + are applied to cover the cost of me creating a print file with requested alterations / multi-image layout for you.  They are applied only once per product/layout. For example: If you need 5 printed copies of the same product/layout with paid design options added, the designer fees will be applied to the first printed copy only. The rest 4 copies are sold at the price of selected edible paper option and are subject to discount for multiple copies.

Want to save on designer fees? Create your ready to print PDF, PNG or JPG and upload.

Icing Sheets are NOT pre-cut. You can cut your Edible Print sheet to any shape using scissors, blades or paper punches.

How good is the Print Quality and Color? – See sample!

The prints are always bright, vibrant and are as clear as your file resolution allows.
The Red is Red. Not orange or pink.


Edible Image Print –  file preview and an actual print on icing sheet – click to enlarge

Being an experienced cake artist for more than 10 years and having a background in graphic and web design and digital print production, I am honored to offer you the most convenient, reliable, high quality and professional edible image printing services: the size is exact, the colors are vibrant, the red is red. I do know what I am doing!

I always review your files and may suggest image quality improvements if I feel that it can boost the final result because I DO CARE!

I also take time to maintain and calibrate my printer, as well as keep the most fresh stock of edible paper to produce high quality edible prints for your wonderful creations every time.

However, please note that due to edible nature of the ink, some colors may not print with exact same shades as they appear on the source image file or even your screen. This is a known issue with all edible print systems and considered being normal.

COLOR PROOFS: I certainly understand that some clients may be particular about color when it comes to their logos.  I do suggest that you order 1 color proof print page before placing an order for a larger batch. 

Can I ask you to find the image/character I want or do I have to find it myself?

Most of the images found online are licensed or copyright protected. If I offer you those images, it would be equal of me selling them along with my services. I provide printing and layout/minor alterations services only and can not legally offer, provide or sell any copyright protected or licensed image as a product.

By uploading your image, you as a customer take full responsibility for obtaining all copyright and the authorization to use the image. 

However, I can help you to find good quality images for uploads:

Jump straight to IMAGE SIZE CALCULATOR

When googling for images, find the largest ones you can.

On your computer browser Google Image Search displays the size of each image in pixels.

If you are using your smartphone or tablet to google images and don’t see the sizes of the images in pixels in search result, you may want to switch to a desktop version of the website.

How do I Store my Edible Print and Finished Cake with applied image?

To ensure freshness, pliability and color of your edible image decal, use it within 4 weeks.

EDIBLE PRINT STORAGE
Keep your frosting sheet in its original heat-sealed zip bag until you are ready to use it.  Once cut open, use immediately. Store remaining parts of the unused decal in closed zip bag to prevent drying.  
Store your edible image print in a cool, dry location away from direct light to avoid fading.
Do not store in the freezer or refrigerator.

During winter:
The prints may crack or shatter when frozen. When picking-up, protect from exposing to freezing weather. |

FINISHED CAKE STORAGE
Once your image is applied to a cake, you may then store it in a dry (home) fridge.
Commercial humid walk-in fridges may cause colors to run, so you may want to place your cake inside a cardboard box to keep extra humidity away and absorb any potential condensation.


Edible Print Montreal (Key Art Studio Cakes) cannot be responsible for the print care, storage and transportation once the print was given to the customer.

If the customer follows the instructions provided no problems should occur.

How to apply Icing Sheet to a cake/cupcake/cookie?

If you have never worked with an Icing sheet before, you may want to start from

ICING /FROSTING SHEET APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS >>>

There are also many useful video tutorials online you can easily find and learn from.

What are the ingredients of your Edible Prints? Are they Kosher? Which paper to choose?


I strongly recommend choosing Icing Sheets for the prints that are applied on top of cakes (fondant, buttercream, whipped cream), cupcakes, cookies, chocolate, candy ets. Unless you need to use it for some specific cake decorating applications and you know what you are doing. Please, see examples below.

The major difference between the two types of edible paper is the print quality. You may look at it as a difference between a newspaper print (Wafer Paper) and a magazine print minus the gloss (Icing Sheet). The Wafer is semi-translucent, brittle and porous. The Icing Sheet is dense, pliable and opaque.

ICING SHEET / FROSTING SHEET is an actual layer of vanilla icing that merges or adheres with the icing on the baked good. They 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 potato starch, water, and vegetable oil. The wafer paper is somewhat brittle. 
It is mostly used for some very specific cake decorating purposes like partially attached dimensional book pages and scrolls, 3D origami objects, leafs or butterflies.
If you have never tried using it, please look for tips and application methods online.

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):


Can I place your Edible Print on top of a Store-Bought Cake?

Many of my clients do place their edible images on store-bought cakes following my
ICING /FROSTING SHEET APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS

When placing your order, please, do not forget to let me know exactly what shape (round or rectangular) and how large you want your image to be printed because there is no such thing as a standard cake size. I am also not able to suggest which size print you need based on the number of cake servings.

You can always measure the cake top area yourself or ask the bakery to do this for you.

If your attached file(s) are too small/poor quality to produce a descent print, I will contact you and ask to email me a better quality images.
Otherwise, please, excuse the print quality.

Can I create a Print File with Multiple Images by myself to save on file fee?

Absolutely!

You may downoad my Full Page PDF template if you are creating the print file yourself.

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).

I accept PDF, JPG or PNG files only and will NOT print from Word, PowerPoint or any other file format.

If you are familiar with creating a PDF file with images, you should be good, because this is the best file format for printing. It respects exact  size and position of all design elements.

You can use any image editing software you are familiar with, downoad my Full Page PDF template with safety margins, open it in your software and place anything you want within page limits. Then save your file as PDF with 300 dpi resolution and upload.

If you are using Adobe Illustrator, please do not forget to do the following before you save your file:

  1. Select all your placed images one by one and click Embed to ensure that they will be attached to your saved file.
  2. If you are adding any text to your image, select all of it, choose TypeCreate Outlines.
    Illustrator gives you the opportunity to change text into outlines or artwork. Basically, you change the text into an object, so you can no longer edit that text by typing. The plus side is that it saves you the trouble of sending fonts to everyone who wants to use the file.
