Hi, I hope this is the right thread to post this in!

I am looking for waterproof paper.  I know it sounds odd, but I came across this: http://www.elementsbathandbody.com/85x11-Waterproof-INKJET-Vinyl-Label-pr-405.html

Anyone have any experience with this?  It sounds pretty cool.  I am making personalized water bottle labels for our wedding and want something where the ink won't smudge off onto your hands or worse...dress (eek!).  This sounds like just the stuff I need.  The only problem is that I don't want to pay a fortune for it.  The pricing is very reasonable on that site, but the shipping when calculated was more than the cost of the paper!  Anyone know where else I could get this?  I searched ebay but can't find anything.   Undecided

Thanks!   Roll Eyes

Hmm, I'm not 100% sure. I've heard that inkjet can smear, it might be easier if you can get on somebody's laser jet printer.

Did you have any luck with this?  I know that Judkins (stamping company on West coast came out with a transfer medium called Transit and there are various ways to do transfers with packing tape and other mediums. I don't know much about this but have seen different products out there. If you have any luck let me know. Once I try it I'll let you know. Happy Crafting, Chris H.

ACTersUnite, no luck yet!  I am still searching though.  One thing I came across though is something called Final Fixative.  It comes in a spray can and it is used to protect printed matter, proofs, pastel, charcoal, drawings etc.  I think I am going to print my water bottle labels out on regular paper and then spray it with this stuff.  I am going to buy some this weekend, so I'll let you know how it turns out when I try it.

Just get regular labels and spray with acrylic.
