Unfortunately, I don't know of any peel-off adhesive receiver. As I mentioned, Kodak had developed a peel-off adhesive receiver, however it was designed to be compatible with their line of thermal printers and ribbons. Thermal printing systems are just that: systems. The ribbon, receiver, and printer all have to be designed to be compatible with each other. In other words, you can't take a receiver that is made by one company for one printing system and necessarily have it work satisfactorily in another system.

I don't have any experience with adhesives that are compatible with dyesub prints. However, I suspect that double-sided tape will be better than a liquid adhesive. My concern is that the liquid adhesive would migrate through the receiver backing and attack the dye layer.
