    I have used Sojar from Fellers and Tattoo by RTape. You have to waste a bunch on each end as you have to have it fed through quite a bit to keep it form curling up and hitting the heads. Other than that, they both worked and printed good. The Tattoo stuff was a PITA to get off the backer with regular masking tape.

    Used the Sihl stuff here. Like was said above, have to feed it out past the heater and then tape it to a core for some weight, stuff likes to curl like crazy.

    siser colorprint is the best with latex... it doesn't curl as badly and you can print right to the edge without head strikes.

    Excellent! High five everyone!

    Great information! Thank you for making it clear and concise. I was searching the HP sites and some of these material sites with no real answers. I will add to this thread if I have more questions. Thanks everyone.:rock-n-roll:
