Q: what types of edible paper do you use, size and price?
1. WAFER PAPER (potato starch)
A4 size (8.27 x 11.69 inches)
thick (.6mm) php250 per sheet
thin (.3mm) php200 per sheet
2. FROSTING SHEET (icing sheet)
letter size (8.5 x 11inches)
Php300 per sheet
Q: can we maximize the paper size?
A: margins should be .4" on all sides. if smaller margin than .4' per side-- sorry mapuputol lang (we wont be held liable for this)
maximum print out is around 7x10 inches only (wafer / frosting)
Q: what paper do you recommend?
A: we always suggest thick wafer, its very easy to handle and cut.
If wrapping around cake side- thin wafer is suggested, but only for light colored photos. dark colored photos will cause the thin wafer paper to curl up. it cannot handle too much ink.
frosting sheet- better print out resolution but weather sensitive and not too easy to cut because it is soft and flexible. on a rainy day/ season, frosting sheet isnt recommended.
Q: should we put it in the refrigerator/ chiller before use?
A: NEVER. edible ink is water based, therefore it should only be stored in dry room temperature. moisture will cause the ink to blot. it is suggested to put the edible print on the cake just before client pickup or before delivery or upon reaching the venue.
Q: can it be used on buttercream icing?
A: YES, since buttercream icing is considered wet, a thin gumpaste/ fondant is required to placed in between the edible paper and buttercream icing. this goes to all "wet" icing/ frosting.
Q: do you layout?
A: NO, we only print ready to print files (pdf, jpg, msword files) we do not lay out more than 1 photo in 1 sheet of paper. but if only 1 photo-- yes we can lay it out based on your target print size (not cake size)
Q: can you print in high resolution to ensure best quality?
A: even you don't request for it, we print in the highest setting. but of course, clarity and sharpness of the print out will greatly depend on the quality (pixels and size) of the file/photo you sent. example: if you use a screenshot/ thumbnail photo and enlarge it to 6 inches- the print out will be 100% blurred / pixelated no matter how high the print settings used, the printout will surely be disappointing.
Q: what do you need, cake size or print out size?
A: print out size. every baker and design is different. for an 8 inch cake some wants 6 inches while others want 7inches.... "6.5 inches round" or "3 inches square"
Q: i need 4x6 inches of this photo, is it possible?
A: we need to know what is the 4inches- is it the width or height? usual problem will be photos are not scaled based on your target size. so just give us whats important to follow-- the width or the height. and the rest will follow. example: ang importante ay yung 4inches height ng photo kasi 4inches height nung cake, kung ilan man maging width nya-- go na" we cant make it exactly 4x6 or 3x4 because the photo will become distorted.
