3M Transparency Film For Plain Paper Copiers, Clear Film, High-Temperature, Pack Of 100

I don't want to take my graphics to a copy place if I can print them myself at home.  I tried regular paper (I heard it would work), but it didn't for me.  Tongue

Photo Emulsion method, obviously.

Any recommendations for other brands of transparent papers and where to get them?

Thanks much!

you can get inkjet transparencies at your local office supply (Staples?) regular ones won't work. The inkjet ones are textured to make the ink stick.

Just got my transparencies at the office store, and it says "plain paper copier", but still, it seems like the ink doesn't stick on it...I get puddles of ink and uneven covarage of the black surface Sad(

Any advice?

...also, I've set the printer on the "transparency" option with not much ink...

thanks a bunch

Plain paper transparencies are designed for use with toner only, they will not work in an inkjet.

Inkjet transparnecies are textured on one side, and smooth on the other. If you hold them up to the light they will look a little bit cloudy. If you print on the wrong side, you'll know cause the ink just slides off.
 

here's the staples brand
