could you pipe a thin border around it so that the "unclean" edges don't show?

I have piped a beaded border in royal icing on a cookie before to either hide the image. Just make sure your royal is stiff...not the flooding consistancy. HTH.

Make your cookie a bit smaller...
So this way the frosting sheet can go on the "side" of your fondant...(I'm applying my frosting sheet with clear alcool like vodka).. so you put "vodka" with a brush on the top of the fondant and also and the side.. and then you can trim the excess...
This is how I did those custom cookies : (but with a glace similar to toba's glace).. I had printed the logo on the business card size frosting sheet.. handcutted the cookies, and then applied the logo on it and trimmed it..

You can use a damp paper towel to moisten the top of the fondant before applying the image and it whould lay completely flat with no edges sticking up.

I don't like those edges either so i always pipe a border around the sheet. I personally like shells or stars.

I made some cookies for a bridal shower with edible images. I piped a border around one and left the other two bare. (Those without edging were stuck down well over a thinly-painted coat of royal icing.)

I have a pic in my cookie photos if you'd like to see the contrast (which worked well, in my opinion).

jrosebud - I really like your cookies with the edible images. What printer do you use and what edible paper? Did you do the names the same way as well - how do you usually stick the image to the cookies?
