    We used to print on 3M 8518 weekly with our Roland, so it's definitely do-able.

    We have also printed on different laminates. We typically laminate over it as well.

    Yes it is clear, but does have a yellow tint. We'll use it in a pinch, but prefer proper optically clear laminate or clear vinyl.
