Printing a Template

After Preview and Export you are ready to print your template.

In printer properties set a ‘custom’ page size  if the icing sheet does not measure as a perfect A4 or A3

In printer properties check to see if your printer has a default border. Either select ‘borderless’ printing or take this into account when measuring the template.

In printer properties select ‘Actual’ page size.

If designing a template to match pre-cut icing sheets, ALWAYS print your template first on plain paper and then overlay it on the pre-cut icing sheet. Even though your measurements might be perfect, every printer feeds a little differently and your template may need to be adjusted slightly to suit your printer.

If designing a template to match pre-cut icing sheets, make the circle diameter a little larger than the actual pre-cut circle, so the image slightly spills over the edges.
