Before you print:
If the Frosting Sheets seem very dry and brittle, place a small piece of a slightly damp paper towel inside the Ziploc bag with the Frosting Sheets.
Important: DO NOT put the damp paper towel on the Frosting Sheet. Place it under the bottom page against the plastic backing side. Remove after a few days. Please note that you only need a small piece of the paper towel.
2) If you're in a very humid environment and you are using the Frosting Sheets, you can peel about 1 - 2” inches from the tab part of your Frosting Sheet prior to printing. Smooth the Frosting Sheet back on to the backing and print.
Important: If you are using a larger image, you should be careful if your cake flexes as it can crack the picture. You can add a second cake board under the cake to provide more stability.
When the image is ready for printing:
Remove a Frosting Sheet from the Ziploc bag. Only remove it once you are ready to print. Remember to reseal the bag removing all air to keep the sheets fresh.
Place the sheet in the printer with the frosting side up (facing you) and the plastic tab in first, then proceed to print on it. For front loading printers, place the sheet in the bottom tray with the frosting side down and the plastic tab in first.Regarding image saturation and overall vividness, people have varying printer models and different methods on how they approach this. Many have their preferred photo editing software (like Photoshop or Canva etc.) to edit saturation, contrast, brightness and other more advanced aspects of their images.
We just have 3 main recommendations when printing:
✅ Set the type/quality to matte or photo paper.
✅ Choose 8.5 by 11 inches (Letter size) if printing on 8.5" x 11" Frosting Sheets OR 11.75 by 16.50 inches (A3 size) if printing on 11.75" by 16.50" Frosting Sheets
✅ Set the print resolution to high.
After printing, let the print air dry for 5 to 20 minutes. If you're in a humid environment, do not leave the image out for more than about 2-3 minutes. If you are not ready to place the image on the cake, place the image in a sealed Ziploc bag until you are ready to use it.
