I just want to find the best and easiest way to use my Epson Color Stylus 860 (inkjet) printer to make awesome decals for next years racing season.

I have been watching you guys talk about everything and am still not sure what you consider works the best.

I am looking for good color saturation, good "stickyness", and availablility of material.

Speedo---

I've been using Krylon workable fixative, it's part #1306, but I haven't used it on the Avery 8665 or any inkjet work for that matter, I've only used it over the thermal transfer prints I've been doing.

I would imagine it would work on inkjet work, but i'd have to try it to find out. My wife is away on work for a week or two and she took the laptop and inkjet with her, or I'd run some and test it now.

Hey everyone! Just got back from office depot and found something that could work very well. It's a sticky clear roll that is used to protect books. It's also very cheap as well, 1.99 Canadian. It's made by Kittrich coporation and mis called magic cover. I'll try to convince a friend of my who has a colour printer to try this and i'll get back to u guys asap.

1stmil:

I have the Azon stuff. I have the white background vinyl. I print on it using an Epson 850 in glossy paper mode. As long as you can deal with the white background, this stuff is great. It sticks way too well!! Can't use it as a mask but as decals it is great.

I have the 770N stuff. Someone said that they made a clear version but I never found it

So... i've tried this paper... and it' great!!! only problem is that is is not 100% clear... about 90% clear. Otherwise, it's very good... the ink sticks very well, it sticks very well on the body because it's very soft, flexable and sticky. I also found a trick on placing decals on cruvey places. Take a hair drier and heat up the decal for about 20 seconds or until it's softer, the place it on the place you want it to be and heat it for another 20 seconds. This will make the decals curve to the contour of the body and fit very well!

Has anybody found any other decal paper that works? Or is the Avery 08665 labels the best there is?

I have been using the AVERY 8665 stock for several months and I place the images inside the body. I too did not like the foggy semi-clear presentation so I placed them inside and airbrushed over them.

I`ve had good luck with the avery 8665,but I found a material put out by the Stika company. Look at www.stika.com/jetcut.htm and see what you think.
