    Just out of curiosity, what is the weirdest thing you've printed on using a flatbed? We recently started printing on ceiling tiles and have had some success. This got me thinking, "what else can we print on?".

    I have a customer who prints on hockey pucks as promotional items for the local team.

    years again while at a trade show, one of the flatbed vendors challenged people to bring "odd" items
    there was pile of stuff people brought and was printed onto; full-sized doors, T-Shirts, frisbees; toilet seat, mouse-pads, dinner plates, etc...

    On Youtube somebody prints on water with a flatbed. Can't get any more odd, can it?

    If I had a flatbed I'd try to print glass spashboards for kitchens

    I worked at a place that had the (IMHO)
    horrible habit of never turning down print jobs, people would bring in rough cut lumber nail together, old rusted tin, ect.
    All it would take is one mistake of not noticing a nail sticking up & you just trashed $20k of print heads in a second... The funny thing was, when those type of jobs came up, the lead printer at the time would be way too busy to run it, so it was dropped in my lap, even though any other time he wouldn't let anyone else run that printer.

    So, did you nail it most times?
