    Can someone recommend a good waterslide decal product?  I’ll be printing using a laser printer.  I know inkjet printed waterslide requires multiple clearcoat layers – should I anticipate the same for the laser printer?  Any advice?

    Thanks

    Hi Andrew – while I’ve not used the laser version of waterslide decal stock, I do use the inkjet version. I use the waterslide stock available from SmallBear. And yes, I would still anticipate the need to clear-coat the laser decals before soaking them in water. For what it’s worth, here is the video tutorial I used to get up to speed using waterslide decals, and with much success . . . .

    Hope this helps

    This is my method which works excellent for me.

    The only complaint I ever got was from people who were not patient enough to allow a 48 hour curing time.

    Any Auto Body person will tell you the protection is tough as nails. They hate when people over spray.

    It doesn’t smell or run and all my pedals still look fantastic years later.
