Has anyone tried the SuperCal White Letter Decal Kit? I didn't know that
they offered such a product.

I read the information on the web site, but what keeps the powder in place? Once you hit it with a heat gun, I can see powder flyng everywhere. Did I miss something?

The instructions on the image of the bottle says that the ink must still be wet from the inkjet, so the moisture may make it sticky and hold it somewhat, especially if the heat is applied to the bottom of the decal.
I'm wondering how much the inkjet dyes discolor the white over time, as the stuff ages.
Next question - When will someone invent a white laser toner?

Why not just go to eBay and buy an Alps printer. They are relatively cheap, tapes are available, and then you can make all the decals you need.

Absolutely! I haven an MD-1000, and love the ability to print white, in addition to metallic silver and metallic gold (not to mention other colors).
