Hello All,
I have made successful pattern transfers using Zinzer Bullseye Shellac, Bin Primer and Denatured Alcohol with 3M 3460 Transparencies and HP Original Inks No 96, 61, 62 and 63. It now seems my printer (HP3833 w/ 63 Ink) is in need of replacing. I am finding deals on printers that use HP 65 Ink and HP 67 Ink. From reading this forum's reviews, it seems that HP 67 ink does not appear favorable. I would appreciate any advice or opinions on the HP 65 and/or other HP inks that have proved functional. Thank you in advance for reading over this request. Your opinions are valued.

go to the outlet of choice. explain what you wish to do. most people in those venues will let you try a printer to see if it suits yer purpose. they have nothing to lose, perhaps a sale. that's good for their bottom line.
there should be half a ton of info in the tips section. check that out as well.

Yes, take a practice plate, some tape and your transparency sheet. Try printing a transfer in the store. I use Prismacolor marker to coat the metal. Try making a transfer in the store. Also, it may be helpful to take a practice plate that has a transfer on it to show the end result. Then they will know what you are looking for.

HP has a printer that is relatively new. It uses 962 ink. I don't know the name of the printer but that would be the one I would try first. Let us know how things go. My ink jet quit and I have been printing with a laser on baking parchment paper. It works great but registration is not as easy. The advantage of this method is that you can use a heat gun to fix the transfer so it doesn't smear. Again, let us know how things work out for you.
