With Papilio Inkjet Waterslide Decal Paper and your own desktop inkjet printer, you can create customized, vibrant decals for a great many number of projects. These decals are ultra-thin and look as though they were painted on, rather than have that "sticker" look. This unique media is not a peel and stick solution, instead, the paper itself is the adhesive. When combined with water, the adhesive becomes active and you can slide the decals onto most smooth surfaces, such as glass, plastics, or ceramics.
Papilio Inkjet Clear Waterslide decal paper is ideal for applications where the target surface is light colored.
As inkjet inks are water soluble, it is of critical importance that the decals be water-sealed after printing using a fixative. Papilio offers Decal Fixative in both a liquid and aerosol format, to allow you to choose which works best for you and your application. This Decal Fixative acts as a water barrier and will prevent water from contacting the ink, washing it away.
Customers who use Papilio Inkjet Waterslide Decal paper use them for a wide variety of projects. Everything from restoring antique watches, clocks, stoves, and even boat motors. Creating custom art for motorcycle helmets, bicycles, and car graphics. Modelers off all sorts use our waterslide decal papers to create custom decals for their model cars, boats, planes, trains, trolley cars, and even robots & rockets. Don't settle for pre-made decals, customize your project using Papilio Inkjet Waterslide Decal Paper and your own inkjet printer.
Inkjet decals require a fixative to seal the ink to the decal film (for submersion in water), we have both an aerosol and liquid fixative available for your convenience. The aerosol fixative provides a faster drying time, and the liquid fixative provides the ultimate in professional looking results. We also offer Krylon Crystal Clear, though since it is not specifically designed to work with this decal paper some crazing can occur over time. Though Krylon is an excellent all purpose arts & crafts clear coat our decal fixatives products work better when used with our decal paper.
