Best inkjet printer for decals
Posted by dueseylvr on Thursday, June 18, 2009 10:01 PM

It looks like I'm in the market for a new inkjet printer since my current one is dying on me.  Which ones would you guys suggest for printing decals?  I also want to be able to scan.

  Hi Due,

  I use an Epson CX5000. It is not a high dollar unit by no But I really think it does pretty good. I havn't done a lot of decal making but I do enjoy experimenting with it.

  Here's a pic of some of the first ones I did. My picture taking skills still need some work

I believe Bare Metal Foil sells it.   I would also imagine it can be had elsewhere.

I use an old HP G85 all-in-one printer/scanner/fax, and it does a pretty good job for the occasional decal work I do. I use Krylon clear to protect the ink.

The paper I use is from Bel Decal, which has an inkjet paper available. Here's a link:

I would also want such printer. I am also using an Epson printer and it sure does things I want. But your inkjet sure produces fine results. And that decal paper sure looks good too. It seems I need to look for such tools and office equipments too. Epson Printer cartridges from
