Here at Celebration Cakes we've been printing edible pictures for over 8 years so we know what we're doing!
We can print any size up to 8 x 10" (20 x 25 cm), even multiple copies of a single image suitable for cupcakes. The cost is $16 per sheet.
If you just require a small image we don't charge you for a whole sheet- up to 6 x 4" (15 x 10 cm) is only $12.
We can crop your photo, and can make your image round, square, rectangular or oval. This is at no extra cost but depends on the layout of the photo.
If you would like to add text, this is an additional $6, just let us know if you have a colour preference. Text will be straight across the image- not rounded.
If your photo has quite a detailed/busy background with a few colours, it may not be suitable to add text.
The edible image itself is a sheet just a bit thicker than copy paper which comes on a plastic backing sheet. When you receive your image it will be in a zip lock bag, just leave it in the bag until needed which can be up to a few weeks (although we recommend getting the image in the same week as your occasion). Just trim around the image with clean scissors, remove it from the sheet & it's ready to place on your cake- we provide more detailed instructions with your image.
Original Cropped & made round
You are welcome to either bring in your image as a photo, on an A4 sheet, CD, usb stick or email it through. We prefer JPG format.
If your image is on a phone or memory card you will just need to get it printed elsewhere first.
To make getting a few photos more economical we can also print from a word document or a PDF file- just send the sheet through with the photos/ logos etc set out no closer than 1" to the top of the page or 2" from the bottom in portrait or if landscape- 1" from the left & 2" from the right. This is also $16.
With this option we're not able to change sizes, add text or make lighter/darker so just make sure the pictures are as you would like them to be.
The quality of the edible image will be very close to your image, pink & purple don't print out quite as true though.
24 hours notice is required and we don't print on a Saturday.
If you have a single image that you would like to use, just let us know the size you would like the images to be & how many you need. If you need more than one sheet ($16) we will let you know.
As a guide- you can fit around 20x 4cm round images on one sheet.
We can generally make them round, depending on the image. You will just need to cut around them.
If you would like a few different images the most economical way of doing them would be to add them to a word doc- they would just need to be the correct size & laid out no closer than 2cm to the top edge or 5cm from the bottom, we would print it off as is & this would also be $16. If you would like them round they would need to be round on the sheet or you can cut them round once printed.
We can send images to most places in NZ for an additional $7, RD is generally $12.
Four working days notice is best or two within Auckland.
We don't print copyright images such as characters eg Mickey, Ben10 etc.
If your icing is very moist or you have a light coloured image on a dark coloured icing we recommend placing your image on a thin layer of fondant icing. We can do this for an additional $6 for pick ups only.
