The answer is yes, MyWrapper® Platinum has been reported to look really great in Vista and in Windows 7 and works just fine.
The answer is pretty easy if you have a graphics program that allows you to crop a JPG graphics file.
When you crop a photo, you use a tool within a graphics program that lets you select the area of the photo you want to keep and remove the rest. Programs such as Adobe Photo Shop, Adobe Illustrator, Coral Draw and many others have this capability and much more. Unfortunately, they are also fairly expensive.
If you don't already have a graphics program you can get a simple but FREE photo editor from Hewlett-Packard.
OK. Now that you understand how to crop and you have a graphics editor that will do the job, here's all you have to do.
That's it. You can now add the text you want and you are finished. If you need to add more than two photos to your wrapper, simply repeat steps 3 through 9 as many times as needed.

You can use the standard 20 pound printer paper that you normally use with your color printer. We recommend the higher brightness (about 105 to 113 brightness) paper for a slightly better appearance. You can find this at your stationary store in a 500 sheet ream. It's normally a 24 pound paper. We have also found that the HP Presentation Paper - Matte Finish (about 34 lb) works really well and is still light enough to wrap easily around your bars. We also find that pastel or other colored paper suitable for your color printer can also be used with great results. A number of our customers have recommended Hammermill OfficeOne Business gloss. It is about a 32 pound paper with a 94 brightness and comes in 300 sheet reams. Unfortunately, we have learned that this paper has been discontinued but there may still be some left at your local stationers.
For making placecards or tents you should use a slightly heavier card stock. We have found that cover stock is excellent for these applications.
You can directly import .JPG, .GIF and .BMP files for either the background or as the inset photo/graphic. Most digital cameras produce .JPG files. These may be used without editing. You can also use any graphic file that you can open and copy to the Windows clipboard
We offer high quality cutting boards from Fiskars. You can see them in our store area. These cutting boards are particularly good because they feature a replacable rotary blade. This type of cutter totally eliminates the safety hazards associated with the guillotine types of cutters.
Yes. MyWrapper® Platinum works with Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows ME, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7. The only glitch we have found is that when you download new designs from the Wrapper Club, the program does not automatically restart and you must double click on the icon to start it.
MyWrapper® Platinum is a stand-alone software program and does not need to have any other program installed on your computer. It has its own built-in set of graphics and databases.
No. The graphics included with the software are all copyrighted and cannot be modified. However, any other graphic, photo or logo you choose to add to a wrapper may be modified as you see fit so long as you do not violate copyright restrictions.
You can import any .JPG, .GIF, or .BMP directly. If you have your graphic in an .AI, .PSD, .EPS, png or other format simply open the graphic in whatever program you normally open it with. Then save it to the clipboard, go to MyWrapper® Platinum or MyWrapper® Gold, click on Edit and select your choice to paste it as a background or as an inset photo/graphic.
MyWrapper® produces wrappers for the Ghirardelli 1.25 oz, Ghirardelli 3.0 oz, Ghirardelli 3.5 oz, Hershey with almonds 1.45 oz, Hershey standard 1.55 oz, Nestle Crunch 1.55 oz, Mr. Goodbar 1.75 oz and any other candy bar having physical dimensions close to these. It also has Kit Kats 1.5 oz, miniatures, Life Savers, a number of nutrition and other bars and a utility for designing a wrapper for any bar, jar, can, bottle or any other item you may wish to use. You can even use it to make bumper stickers.
We have also added a large number of downloadable templates to our website for items such as water bottles, paint cans and paint can lids, many more candy bars, wine bottles, votive candles and much more. Click here to be taken to the page containing these new templates.
The only cuts needed with MyWrapper® Platinum are around the outside of the wrapper. Cut lines are printed at the corners for your convenience.
Should you decide to change the wrapper design or the candy bar, all graphics and text which you have entered are preserved and subsequently displayed on the new selection. The only way to lose the information is to close the design without first saving it.
MyWrapper® Platinum comes with about 1,000 graphics and 1,000 suggested sayings. New graphics are available to add to the program.
There are numerous categories not assigned to specific occasions. You can use any design from these categories or in fact any design from any category for any occasion you wish, listed or not. For example, you could take a design listed for Birthday and use it for Confirmation simply by entering the text suitable to a confirmation. One of our customers, for example, used a design from the Anniversary collection for favors for their wedding reception.
There are no restrictions, royalties or other fees required once you have purchased our software. You are perfectly free to create and sell your wrappers with or without the candy. The only thing we ask is that you leave the original manufacturer's wrapper on the candy as they have told us that this ensures that the candy will always have the ingredients available and protects the flavor and quality of the candy. Your wrapper paper will not qualify under FDA guidelines for barrier paper for use with food products.
MyWrapper® Platinum was created for individuals wanting an easy way to create their own favors. By including our web address and copyright notice we were able to consider this as a part of our advertising budget and thus sell the software at a considerably lower price than if we were selling a software tool to candy wrapping professionals. Just consider the several hundred dollar investment required to obtain the privilege of purchasing partially printed wrappers from other companies and you quickly see what a bargain MyWrapper® Platinum is. To our surprise many customers have turned out to be professionals. Consequently we redesigned the software so both MyWrapper® Platinum and MyWrapper® Gold provide the means to remove our copyright information.
You may use any color inkjet or laser printer.
The number of wrappers that can be printed on a sheet is determined by two factors. The first is the size of the wrapper. The second is determined by how close to the edge of the page your printer is capable of printing. On most printers, MyWrapper® Platinum prints one Hershey standard crimped end wrapper or 15 miniatures or 130 kisses on a sheet of paper. If you cannot print this many, try to find a setting to reduce the margin for your printer. This should be explained in your printer manual. If there is no setting for reducing the margin, contact your printer manufacturer and see if they have a more recent print driver which would allow you to print closer to the edge of the page.
First make certain you are connected to the Internet. Start MyWrapper® Platinum or MyWrapper® Gold and click on "START A NEW WRAPPER" to open the main screen. If you are in the middle of creating a wrapper, save your work before continuing. Click on "Help" on the Menu Bar and then click on "Auto Update From The Web!" If a later version of MyWrapper® Platinum or MyWrapper® Gold is available a message will appear on the screen asking if you wish to update. Click OK and the update process will automatically begin. At the end of the installation process you just click to let the program restart. There is no need to restart your computer so you need not worry about other programs you have running.
This problem is associated with older operating systems such as Windows 98 and Windows ME. It will go away when you upgrade to Windows 2000, Windows XP or whatever the next release of Windows is called. It is a consequence of how the Windows operating system allocates resources.
You can very easily use the designs from MyWrapper® Gold with MyWrapper® Platinum.
You do not need to follow this procedure for any of the graphics in the graphics packages available for MyWrapper® Gold as they are all included in MyWrapper® Platinum.
