I need to make a Dr. Seuss baby shower cake and checked out a lot of great ones from the gallery here. Almost everyone used edible images. Is there some place you can buy these or did everyone just use their edible image printer?

I believe Walmart prints them but if you can't get it there I suggest trying some local bakeries. I also think that Baskin & Robbin's does this as well. Just call around and find out if they do it and how much they charge. I remember reading on one of the threads that Walmart charges $5.

I'm guessing people probably have their own printers because it adds up to have to buy these images especially if they use several on the same cake. Some of those Dr. Seuss things you can draw on the edible paper too, because they look drawn anyways, not like a perfect cartoon character like Disney stuff.

Most places will do edible images for you,but not Dr.Suess,it is copyrighted.It would be against the law for them to do this.I would suggest chocolate,royal icing or,frozen buttercream transfer.I am a big fan of chocolate transfers they are super easy.

Here's a tutorial (there's another one around but I can't seem to find it yet). All the transfer's are very similiar just a different medium:
