Decal paper

Has any one found a good white and clear decal paper to use on a inkjet printer yet, that is available in the UK.

I got some from Hannant's not used it yet but it is made by Experts-Choice in the US, so must be good.

I haven't found a good inkjet paper even here in states. The last I tried was Micro Marks. I LOVE their copy/laser decal paper. Their inkjet paper has a good decal material for the sheet, but does not work well with inkjet printers :-) The printing reticulates and leaves a fine pattern. This was with both a Canon and an Epson printer. Did not have an HP to try.

I have also tried all those tricks like various sprays, or rubbing the paper with baking soda before printing. Nothing works.

I have gone back to making color decals by printing out on plain paper and taking printout and copy/laser printer to copy shop.

I DO make black decals by using my cheap black and white laser printer on the copy/laser paper. Works great. With laser printer prices plummeting (I saw a sale on black and white laser printer today for fifty bucks), I may buy a color laser soon just for decals.

Have you tried Elmer's Washable School Glue Gel? You can buy a small bottle anywhere school supplies are sold.

Stir water into it until it is foamy. Brush it on and it settles down nicely.

Try decal sheet of Bare Metal Foil Company , they come in two versions (inktjet of laserprint) and two variants (white or clear).

Gives good results! regards, Meindert
