ADDITIONAL SERVICES

Table of contents


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

- Print your image within a circle frame to fit on top of a round cake. Max circle diameter is 7.67" (195mm).

- 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 ($10 per file)

- Multiple images per page placement.

If you are willing to place more than one image per page and you don't know how to safely do it yourself, I would be more than happy to help you for a small fee of $10 per file*.

Example: cupcake or cookie toppers - you can send me one image for your cupcake or cookie topper, specify the size and shape (round or rectangular), and I will crop and adjust it to the desired shape and size and place as many copies on the same page as the printing area would safely allow. Please, specify your request in the comments area.

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.

*$10 per file with 1 image multiplied to as many instances per page as you need or to as many as page size would safely allow. The fee is applied once to create a file, and then you can order as many print copies of it as you need.

Example: 1 multiple image file creation + 4 printed copies of it on icing sheets = $50 total.

EDIBLE PAPER INFO AND SPECIFICATIONS
Table of contents


 


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 dense Icing Sheet. Wafer paper is more translucent and any colored background will affect the image easily.


ICING /FROSTING SHEET APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS >>>

 

Edible image printing for cakes Montreal

 


Table of contents

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).


 

All edible inks and paper are Kosher and FDA Approved*

*as per manufacturer labels


 

SUBMITTING THE FILES (Image size and resolution requirements)

Table of contents


Please, make sure all your printable files are at 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 desired theme, as those images are usually larger than most web clipart or other pictures.


Image size examples for descent 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

 

Please, note that proportions of some images may require a bit of cropping to fit on the max safe printabe area if you wish to fill it completely.


Acceptable file formats are PDF and JPG, the max. file size is 3 MB.


HOW TO GET BEST PRINTABLE FILES FROM THE INTERNET:





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 image per page placement 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 fit the max. printable area of the paper you choose.

 

Edible Icing sheet / Frosting sheet, max. safe printable area 7.67" x 10.23" (195mm x 260mm)

Max circle diameter 7.67" (195mm)

Edible Rice paper / Wafer paper max. safe printable area 7.67" x 10.62" (195mm x 270mm)

DISCLAIMER
Table of contents


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 colouring ink", some colors may not print with exactly same shades as they appear on the sourse 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 sometime 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. Large black areas or backgrounds may not print well and I even may reject your image if you send it or offer printing it at your own risk if you like. Please keep in mind this is to ensure your satisfaction.


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.


Key Art Studio Cakes cannot be responsible for print care, storage and transporation once the print was given to the customer.

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

 

By uploading your image, you as a customer is responsible for obtaining all copyright and the authorization to use the image. Key Art Studio Cakes offers and takes responsipility for printing services only and does not sell any design or license image as a product.

 

Edible Image Prints are non-refundable unless the print job was cancelled by Key Art Studio Cakes for any reason.
