Using a laser printer on sign vinyl? Answered
Question: I've gotten a nice sized scrap of sign vinyl from where I work at, and I'm wanting to cut out a replacement logo for the side of my pedal-start moped. I can do it by hand okay if I could transfer the design onto the sign vinyl and follow it. (because, I don't have access to a vinyl cutter or a Cricut type machine.) Can you do the toner transfer method from a transparency made in a laser printer, or would that melt the vinyl? Or, if cut to proper size, could you print directly onto the vinyl, if the printer's paper path were essentially straight? It wouldn't have to be permanent, just on the surface to follow it. This stuff is pretty opaque, so a light table won't work either.
Thanks for your time!
