Transparencies

I was wondering if there are any printers that can print on a transparent medium and also is there a medium and ink available. The purpose is to project an image on to a canvas and draw the image..Thanks ..Jeff

I guess its only medium based... I can print with my epson 1400 and epson 4000 pro on transparent material, but it has to be "special" inkjet stuff..

I printed out various movie posters for a "horror film mashup festivall" mirrored on A2 Sheets, then they where put into lightboxes with backlight, wonderfull!

Why not use a digital projector?

Jeff,

The solution to your "problem" is Pictorico OHP Transparency Film, see:

I use the "Premium" version to make negatives for alternative processes (mainly cyanotypes). I am currently using an Epson 3880 (pigment-based) for this purpose. In the past, I used a Canon i9900 (dye-based) for the same purpose. OEM links in both cases.
