To get the best results from your photos and images please follow these guidelines or view our full print guidelines HERE:
We will always do our best to ensure you get the best quality images, but whilst our food printers are state of the art, printing onto icing with edible ink is not the same as printing photo’s onto photo paper and they will never be as clear and as detailed.
As we cannot control what images are uploaded, it is the customer’s responsibility to upload good quality images that meet our guidelines below. We print the images as they are sent to us and do not do a detailed image check to ensure they have met these guidelines. We also cannot edit your images.
CUPCAKES – Remember, your cupcake topper has a small print area of less than 5cm in diameter so, please follow these guidelines:
- Don’t use pictures with lots of detail or busy backgrounds as that could get lost in the print.
- Use photos with just one or two people and make them as large as you can within the space.
- Avoid group shots may not come out well as the print area is too small.
- Make sure the images are bold and bright as they tend to work best.
- Avoid dark pictures and those with lots of fine detail are harder to print.
- If adding text, make it large and bold, and select a text colour that stands against the picture.
- BLACK AND WHITE PICTURES – Please do not mix black and white and colour images in the same order. We have to print all images at the same time and if black and white are mixed with colour it can sometimes lead to a green tinge on the black and white pictures.
FULL CAKES – As your image can be up to 30cm wide, please make sure it is a high quality image as it may need to be enlarged. Make sure your image is high quality as we may need to enlarge it to print onto a cake. Low resolution images may pix-elate when expanded.
