How to…Print your 2″ circles:
Let’s talk Printing. All 2″circles print on size 8.5×11 paper. I recommend matte or thick glossy photo paper, but card stock also works. Here is a link for detailed paper recommendations. If you are printing the 2″ circles/cupcake toppers, each page will have 12 circles on it. If you are printing circular favor tags, 4″ circles or other circular files, the number of items will vary. 2″ circles can be printed at home from any normal home printer. Color variations may occur based on the printer, ink and paper combination you select. I recommend always printing on your printer’s “best” or “photo” setting for highest quality and ensure that your printer has adequate ink. Low ink levels can make colors appear dull.
If you do not want to print at home, files can be printed at any local print shop that prints PDF files. Places like OfficeMax, Staples, and FedEx are great options.) Printing options are also available here.
How to…Assemble your 2″ Circles:
Assembly is super easy. Once the files are printed, cut out the circles along the edge of the design. or even easier and cleaner edges, use a 2″Paper Punch. You can then use hot glue the circles to the top of lollipop sticks or straws to be used as a cupcake topper or attach to ribbon to use as a decorator. 2″ circles can also be printed on adhesive paper to be used as a sticker. Here are my adhesive paper recommendations. Easy Peasy.
