Edible Image is a registered trade mark of Lucks Food Decorating. Your images are placed on a icing sheet with food coloring using FDA compliant equipment. The sheet is a thin layer of sugars that will meld with frosting or any moisture you add to it. They are not sticky, only until you add it to your product. When using fondant you can sray or brush water, piping gel or simple syrup then apply. They are pliable and come to you with a backing sheet and can be cut in any shape with or without the backing.
We ask that you provide the image for Custom Sweet Images.Photos that have bright colors and light background is best for edible ink printing. If you order circle images make sure the object is in an area that can be cropped into a full circle.
- JPEG is the best file to use
- 2 MB is perfect
- 60 KB is about the lowest, these are usually from phones
- Or 600 x 600 pixels to 1000 x 1000 pixels, anything below 600 x 600 pixels will not be clear when fitted on a rectangle sheet.
- The orders for 2" or 3" images can be smaller file size
- There will be distortion if your file is too small Hint: if its from a website most will not have clear resolution since these are small files for online
A good way to test your own photo is with an editor. Resize it to your order dimensions and see if its clear and sharp. Or right click and look at properties.
If a file is given from Word or PDF the color will be off. There will also be a chance of images turning a greenish color when later used.
Will you edit my photo?
Cropping is also available please take notice of your image if you want it into a circle, some areas cant be cropped in if you want the entire subject from your photo. If this is the case we can place the entire (rectangle/square) photo onto the circle icing sheet. Its best to leave clear instructions if cropping is involved.
Since we are only a step to completing your finished product it is important to leave precise instructions for our designer. Your original photo proportion is important to consider while leaving directions. A proof can be asked for before a final print. Also, we have an online designer to make it so much easier, what you see is what you get!!!!
