Using old decal sheets

Recommended Posts

It can certainly be done. If printing black items, you can use clear decal paper. If printing any other color including white, you'll need to use white decal paper because inkjets (and color lasers) produce translucent colors designed to be printed on white paper. That may leave you the possibly difficult task of cutting out the marking right at the edge of the colors to avoid a white halo.


Inkjet inks are water soluble, so you'll need to apply a clear coat or two before wetting them. I use Mr. Color clear gloss, but any acrylic or acrylic lacquer clear will probably do.
