So I just had to try this out over the weekend.. and I'm pretty pleased with the result!
Worked fine on my HP printer, but the ink didn't turn out as dark black as your result.
My husband meant the ink bled a bit when I washed the vinegar out, but since I can't see
it, it doesn't matter  Wink

Thanks again for the great tip!

Thanks for sharing this method!

Has anyone tested this with a laser printer?  Or is this inkjet only?  I would imagine laser might be easier just because it already heatsets as part of the printing process; but that heat may compromise the image because of the wax getting heated up.

I have a color laser printer that I use for another method I discovered on here (using a mirror imaged print, solvent, and burnishing the back of the print to get it to transfer) but your method with the wax paper is a heck of a lot less work than burnishing; and I'm planning on doing jerseys for a whole basketball team this winter.  Cheesy

Seriously?  This sounds AMAZING.  I can't wait to try it with black and white photos and line art!!!!  And to make my own labels which are just freakishly expensive to buy!  THANK YOU for sharing this!

Dolly Donations,     This is such a great project! You have saved me hours of work using other image reproduction techniques.  I do have one question though-- Do you know if a laser printer would work, or does it have to be an inkjet printer?

Is there something your could use other than freezer paper?
Where I live in Aus, we can't get freezer paper unless we get it from specialty stores & it's mega expensive
