Adhesive Backed Label paper


Quality label substrates that take inkjet printing well are available from several sources. We particularly like the adhesive vinyls from Papilio.

Embossed Molds


House on the Hill has an excellent selection of molds, embossed pans and rolling pins, as well as recipes and hard to find ingredients like hartshorn (baker's ammonia) used to improve the crispness of embossed designs. Just don't eat the raw dough if you use hartshorn! Cookiemolds.wordpress offers an assortment of historical cookie mold reproductions with recipes for springerle, marzipan and gingerbread. Cookiemold has an array of real wood, hand-carved molds. You can commission a custom design from woodcarvers like Oldrich Kvapil - though the fee is a bit higher.

Cardboard circles


Food grade cardboard circles and boards provide a solid foundation for holiday treats like panforte, shortbread, biscotti and Turkish delight and help to protect during shipment.
