Hello Bakers and Pastry professionals!

I have just bought an edible image printer for my bakery and didn't realize it wouldn't have the templates or a program to make it user friendly.  What program(s) do you use to start the process of making edible images??  Any helpful tips would be appreciated.

Flour to Fabulous,

Hi!  Yes we do have a free program for those who use our products.  It is called iPrint and it is a web based program that was specifically designed for edible printing.  You can print on all of our Premium Icing Sheets, Premium Wafer Paper and Premium Luster Sheets.  This includes our precut circle where you can print different images on the circles that are used for cupcakes, cookies, cakepops, marshmallows and Oreos! You can add text, frames and even some special effects!  You can find out more at www.icingiamges.com/iprint or give us a call at 540 869 5511.  Also, we do not monitor what you print or how many, there are no codes to input, it works with our icing sheets!  You can purchase the Template Designer which will allow you to print on other icing sheets that are not the Icing Images brand.

You always have the option of printing using any graphics program as long as you are not looking to print the multiple up, precut circles.

I hope this helps!

How do you line up the pre cut circles with the photo shop program or do large 1/2 sheet images?

For the Icing Images precut circles you need to use our free program.  Some people do create their own templates but it is very difficult. 

You have a wide format printer? Or one with a scanner?

To use photoshop you have to make your own templates, which isn't a huge deal, but you do have to know how to work in photoshop. If you're not comfortable with that it's probably easier to go with a pre-made template system like Icing Images has.

The wide format paper is a standard size that does you can use with any graphics program. Sandra,  your printer does every size sheet so a program like Icing Images iPrint will be beneficial to you if you do not know how to create your own templates.  The precut circles do not use standard templates such as avery or anything like that.
