New brakes and rotors

Just ordered a set of EBC 3GD Series dimpled and slotted rotors and Wagner thermo quiet ceramic pads. Excited to test them out!! The rotors look sick and the wagner pads are supposed to be minimal brake dust. I did hear that i'm supposed to "bed" my brakes. Does anyone know what the process is, or what i'm supposed to do?

Thanks for that!! I bought only the rotors from ebc, they have a black hub which is cool. The brake pads I got from wagner and they're not colored like the ebc pads. After doing some research, wagner were the better choice.

Are you changing your rotors also or just the pads?
