History of wafer paper in cake decoration industry .
In most cases plug and play full ink set can cost from $30 to $60 depending on printer brand , model and manufacturer .
High quality branded edible ink cartridges are generally little more expensive than generics therefore everyone look for alternatives .
Canon printers originally weren't built for edible printing on icing sheets,
they are made with very tiny rollers that you can see if you look closely at the upper ceiling inside the output area. They look like small white or black plastic rollers and these little devils are what press onto your icing sheets and leave annoying marks.
Here is few quick tips :
Change settings to standard quality printing and paper type to plain ...ink is not drying fast enough , raise temperature in room if possible . Try to avoid printing images with dark colors or leave them to be printed last .
.Widen the clearance between the sheet and the rollers
Selecting the ‘Prevent paper abrasion’ setting in the printer settings will widen the clearance between the Print Head and the loaded paper, meaning that the pins won’t roll onto the icing sheet so closely.
To do this, assuming you are using a Canon (a brand we recommend
for icing printing due to their removable print heads), click on
Printer Properties > Maintenance > Custom Settings > and
tick ‘Prevent Printer Abrasion’. Incidentally, changing the ‘ink
drying wait time’ won’t help this – this is simply the time the
printer waits between each print.
. Dry out paperIf it is humid conditions, the icing sheet can take longer to absorb the ink, meaning that the drying ink can roll onto the sheet. In this situation it helps to dry out the sheet

Custom images to life!
Custom printing is more than just a pretty picture on a cake, it can be a fun process that evolves your creativity and brings your creations to a whole new level of…. AWESOMENESS!
Here is a quick and simple explanation on how versatile edible custom printing can be!
Supreme Icing sheets are the best choice for photo printing due to their melding quality and smooth bright surface which delivers crisp images and vibrant colors.
Formats usually range from Letter size (8.5” x 11”) to as big as Tabloid size (11”x17”), a commonly format used in between is Legal size (8.5” x 14”). These three standard formats are ideal for the usual cake sizes; Letter size fits a quarter sheet cake, legal size fits a half sheet cake and tabloid is great for full sheet cakes. You can print border-less to cover the entire surface of your cake with your unique image, or leave a space around your photo to add 3D props or borders; the amount of decoration you can use to compliment your custom print is limitless!
You might be wondering, what kind of images should you use? There is no right or wrong, it all depends on the feel you are aiming for. Print a wild pink cheetah pattern for a reunion with your girlfriends, make your children smile like never before with a cake of their favorite cartoon or add the picture of your loved one for a touching surprise!
But wait a second! Talking about versatility, don’t limit yourself to just cakes. What about cupcake and cookie lovers?! Well, we have it all for you! Print on our fun selection of five pre cut- sizes which includes 1.25”, 2”, 2.5”, 3” and 8” diameter circles, and business cards, for all your project needs!
