  • Logo and Caption

    Hi ,
    I did some testing with very thin rice paper. the one that used for lens cleaning.
    the results was very good .
    1. i place the rice paper on a A4 paper and hold it with a tape.
    2. i put the A4 paper in the laser print and print the caption and logo.
    this is the link for the rice paper:

      I use Rice Paper from FoamEZ, it wets out and goes completely clear. only problem is that even the color that i print into the rice paper goes somewhat clear. I'm not sure how to have a thick and dense logo printed onto that paper. I hear screen-printing is good for that. Anybody know a good source for that?

        What printer & inks are you using for color? Pigment based inks like Epson's archival inks are supposed to hold up well for color. I've only used black so do not know first hand. Also, if you can add white behind the color that should help a lot too.

        I think this is the place I ordered my rice paper.... http://www.rice-paper.com/uses/surfboard.html

          I printed some logos on transpareny foil (there are versions for inkjet and Laser Printers availlable) Finally I have no real long term experience, but I rate the Laser "Black" a little higher.
          Place the foil on wood, but do a cheater coat and then put some resin under it that all air bubbles disappear, then glassing..., or put in on a first glass layer and top with a second, if your going for two layers anyway.

            Try to change

            the printer setting, you can adjust the printing quality, maybe with a higher quality it will be more dense.

              plus check your paper / media setting.... typically a printer will lay down more ink on a matte paper as opposed to a glossy. you may need to experiment.
