I have a bride who wants me to possibly make the escort cards for her reception out of sugar cookies. She sent me the attached image and I told her I'd look into it. Can anyone on here tell me how they got the writing to blend in so well. My print is good but not THAT good. Also, because it's escort cards, it's not like I can get a stamp and just repeat the same thing.

All help is greatly appreciated!

They could be edible images?

They are either edible images or somebody Photoshopped the names onto the picture!

Yeah, no way did someone "write" that. I'm thinking it's actually photoshopped myself too.

could someone have possibly purchased a rubber or silicone stamp (custom made) and used gel color like you would a stamp pad? If you're using the same stamp for each one then it wouldn't be an issue but for escort cards.... I'd say an edible image.

Sweet Art has a machine called Jet Decorator System that prints directly on a cookie. That's what was done with the pictured cookie. Edible images have the paper you need to deal with and unless the cookie is frosted white it will show.

wow that's a hard one. I actually managed to find the website these were from when searching google and all they say is they use 'sophisticated printing technology' to get that text. They don't want to give anything away do they lol

If they were edible images, how did they get it so you can only see the text and not the rest of the paper it was printed on?

*Edited to say: Ah, the machine that hhcakes said sounds like they could have used that

Yep, what hhcakes said. What a wonderful system, but if I remember correctly it's very expensive.

found the machine that hhcakes mentioned... there is one on ebay for $900 obo. Maybe you could use a stencil and an airbrush?

Those cookies are amazing!

Those cookies are stunning!! I mean, wow! Is that the one that literally prints directly onto the cookie? I think I remember hearing about that last year.

Do you think there is any way to get that same effect with regular edible image frosting sheets or rice paper?

WHat would happen if you printed it with edible ink onto rice paper, and then placed the rice paper on top of wet royal icing? Could that work?

I think you could airbrush them with a stencil, I would try it, I have seen this and always wondered how they did it, I tried to copy it with a stamp and food coloring, but it didnt work. If you try, let me know how it went, good luck!

Wow! I am so happy I stumbled across this post, because I am also planning the same thing for my own wedding! (and here I thought I was original for wanting edible cards).

I had never considered the printed writing like in this example, but instead was planning on having a "piping party" to do them by hand. Well, now this idea moves to the top of this list!

Good luck to the OP icon_smile.gif

All I can say is wow--those cookies are awesome, writing or no writing. I would never be able to get enough money in my area to justify the amount of time the piping would take to make them perfect. Incredible!
