Need Help HP Deskjet 1050C Decal printing


Staff member
I want to make decals for an outdoor product, my intention is to print it and laminate it to make it last longer. What material can I print on? Any brand suggestion, my printer is 30".

Not familiar with your printer but I'm sure you can find adequate info if you use the "Search" function here or contact your local media/sign products suppler.


Quit buggin' me
When I used to run an Encad inkjet (yes that salesman saw me coming a mile away) with the pigment ink set we had pretty good results with vinyl from Sihl
Not sure if this is the number but I think so (its been a while):
If you are running the dye inks they will fade pretty fast.
With the pigment you could get a few months without lam and maybe a year or so with lam. We used Oracal 210 at the time.
