I just recently (finally!) got a printer to make edible images, and a few of my family members have wanted me to print items for them to use on their own cake creations. I've been holding off becuase, how do you pack the image, so it won't dry out? I mean I have access to a lot of companies to buy packaging materials from, but I don't know where to even start on what sort of packaging to use. Plastic bag, does it have to be sealed? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. : )

I use plain old ziplock bags and they work well for the images.

Hello from Akron, Ohio!!

I use cello bags and seal them shut with an iron (I would like to have one of those heat sealers though, on the wish list).

Off to check out your website!

Yep, I never have used my iron for clothes, only crafts. LOL!! It works on the bags that have a seam down the back, not the ones that Wilton sells that aren't crinkly and don't have a seam.

Right now I'm getting my bags at Mr. Bulky's in Cuyahoga Falls because it's local and I have yet to order them in bulk (probably could save some money that way though).

OMG! I just realized you meant how do you package the images, not the cookies! So sorry, having a blonde moment on a Monday.
