Printing on tissue paper or similar....
Sep 4, 2008

I am inquiring for an independent study this semester. I was hoping to print on tissue paper or similar as i want to use it as a skin on balsa wood, much like the model airplanes. I have seen several skeptical sites on the web that insist you can by using spray adhesive and a backing and it will then run through an inkjet printer normally.

Is there a commercial paper product that is designed for printing with the porosity that traditional tissue paper does or can someone here with experience chime in?

I am trying to explore the fine format that the photos will be presented so i can finalize my research grant proposal.

Thanks in advance for any help.

edit: i just remembered my professor that told us there are printable water-slide and rub-on decals. This may be a better option since doping the tissue paper onto the balsa wood object may cause running of the ink, although I'd imagine that they will only be placeable on flat surfaces.
never say never
