1. Choose a clear, sharp picture. Try to avoid shadowy and overexposed photos. For instance: overexposed photos may appear pale and unclear.
2. Make sure that the image is suited for the size chosen. In principle, images with a resolution of 1024x786 are suited for all sizes. In case of doubt, you can enlarge or downsize an image in, for instance, MS WORD to the desired size. If this is sufficiently clear and sharp, it will also be suited for the matching size of wafer paper. An example: if you want to print a small image on A4 size, it will be less sharp and appear blocky.
3. For stamp size, take a close-up image. Persons from a distance are not recognisable at a size of c. 3x4cm. You can test this in MS WORD as well.
4. Be cautious with the number of words of text. In stamp sizes in particular, a lot of text will not be legible. We advise using 2 to 4 words maximum. At these sizes, the text colours white and black are the best legible. You can place text on your image yourself using a text photo processing programme. You then have the font of your own choice.
5. Do not process your photos with effects. Effects such as merging or blurring photos usually do not come out well. Processed photos are original and beautiful, but wafer paper cannot do them justice. Black and white will usually work well.
6. If you want only text printed on your wafer paper, this is also an option. You place your order with a random image and in the extra comments section indicate how you want your print done. You can also make an image yourself in a photo processing programme with only text on it. The text then has a layout of your own choice.
7. Cupcakes with photo: for this, choose a cupcake in the size 24 pieces on an A4 sheet. These are best suited for cupcakes with a logo or photo.
TAKE NOTE! The colours of an edible photo may deviate from the original. This is because we print with edible ink on edible paper. This ink has a different composition from normal ink. We try to print as true to the original as possible.
