    Looking for a way to print occasional small decals on vinyl.
    I have a cheap C88+ inkjet with durabright inks, which makes the
    brightest and best T shirt prints ever.

    I have heard of some people using lasers and inkjets on vinyl and if true, then
    a second vinyl cutter with a electronic eye could cut out the decals
    from the inkjet.

    Anyone on the board have first hand experience doing this ?

    Thanks,

    Don

    Another inkjet water slide decal paper is available from many venders. After printing it gets a coat of Krylon Clear Acrylic. Two or three light mist coats.

    Do a google search for "water slide decal paper". Comes in clear and white.

    Is water slide decal paper really paper or vinyl ?
    Does water slide decal paper have a backing that will allow
    a vinyl cutter to cut out the decal ?

    Thanks,

    If you're just doing occasional small decals could you not just cut them by hand with a knife? A couple of clear coats with Frog Juice should protect them outdoors.
