Oh crap... now that you say that... I wonder if my printer is actually an inkjet... I guess I should figure that out.

*crap*

*runs off to figure it out*

Okay, does anyone know what the HP Photosmart is?  I'm thinking it's an INKJET, not a LaserJet...

I'm pretty sure, having had a laserjet in the past, this method wouldn't work at all with laserjet.

But right now I"m having a brain spasm and can't think straight, lol.

I don't think it would destroy the laser jet (I used to do all sorts of horrible things to my laserjet and it was much more robust when it came to handling my torture)... but I also don't think it would work. At all.

Awesome - I usually use the laserjet/toner method, but am always looking for other ways to image transfer - am bookmarking this!

BTW - is the tape reusable - like if you need to make many transfers, can you run the same sheet through again, after using it the first time?

Yes, I should have mentioned that!  Even if you let it dry (there's always some leftover ink on the tape). squirt a paper towel with window cleaner (water might even work, I just had window cleaner next to my work bench) and wipe off the ink.

I only experimented with one reprint (because for most of them, I was cutting the sheets apart to work with the transfers), so I don't know for certain how long it would last, but I would expect you could get several prints at least...

Who knows? Since it's the Magical/Mystical Duct Tape, maybe one sheet would work Forever and Ever, Amen.  Cheesy
