Try your supermarkets. Here in north Jersey ShopRite will do them for $8 a sheet.

I usually order through icing images...I'm in NYC and usually get them in 1-2 days (unless they have a backlog of orders)

Next question for everyone then, who gives them the best images, and does it vary from store to store of the same name? Our Shop Rite does it, when they feel like it and don't do a very good job. Price Chopper does it, but they have an attitude when you ask, and the image is so blurry it's terrible, and their people don't know how to do it properly. Walmart does the best job, but even their isn't only fair in imagery, at best.

I called Pathmark, Acme and Sam's Club in my area. They all acted like I was crazy. I'll try Walmart next.

My wal mart does a great job, wonder if the equipment is dated or tired?

Lisa: try different Walmarts too -- I know Deptford bakery is better than Turnersville, and Glassboro Shoprite busier than Mullica Hill where you might get a better rapport with the bakery dept. Also, Wash. Twp Acme is very good

When ordering icing images, be careful as to the type of paper that is used. Some is Rice, some Potatoe and some Sugarbased. Sugarbased being the best as far as taste, texture, and merging. If the image is less expensive, most likely they use a potato or rice paper. Most grocery store chains use the sugar based paper, but what you will find is that the machines are not maintained or used properly.
