Hi everyone! I just recently purchased a Canon MG5350, some edible ink and three sets of frosting images (one lot square, one lot round, and one lot cupcake size) my brother in law came over and set up Corel Draw for me, but when they print out they still don't line up to the icing on the sheet! They are out by a little bit, and I can't sell them like this! We have tried measuring them, all sorts - the sheets are all made from Kopykake but I purchased them through cakesaroundtown.com the sheets themselves aren't even A4 size! Please please can anyone help me in regard to how to set up a proper template, what computer program to use? I am so stressed out about it!! I would appreciate any help, hints or tips! 


Thanks so much, Louise :)

AHonestly there might be a much much easier wayto do his and hopefully someone who knows more will post something soon and make your life easier but if not... I would go old school and make my own template. i dont know if you already tried this but... Use regular paper so your not wasting good ones. Do some trial and error adjusting the spacing and line it up with the frosting sheets. Also remember to only use minimal letters not to waste ink.

Use whatever software you're comfortable with.  I use PhotoShop a lot, but Powerpoint or Word will also work.  Print out on reg paper first, hold it behind your icing sheet page and hold both up to a light.  You'll see where the printing will hit the icing sheet.  Also works for checking labels.

AHi, Kopykake has their own software for lining up the sheets. they give you codes to use the product on each bag. The Icing Images product is a different product then Kopykake. Icing Images has free web based software, iPrint, that match to their icing sheets.
