Question..... A long long long time ago I saw a technique on "lynette jennings show" (like i said a lonnnnnngggggg time ago ) LMAO I think I was like 15.... LOL Anyways... she used this inkjet paper to print letters onto then she used a popsicle stick to burnish the letter from the paper onto the wall. It is kinda like the "rub ons " used for scrapbooking..... I can't remember the name of the paper and every craft store looks at me like I am dipsy. We used this technique on my aunts house so I know it did exist at one point.... I loved this.... Anyone have any suggestions.... ideas?Huh I would prefer not to stencil because the letters I want to use are way too detailed for it to look right.  I really wanna do the whole 'rub on ' thing!


Thanks, Di

I haven't a clue what the name is, I've never even heard of it. But maybe you're looking in the wrong place for it. Have you tried an office supply store or something like that??? Worth a shot, right?

Sorry I've been gone so long. Am trying to get back on the boards. Body's thrown me for a few loops these past months and am still learning to adjust. Thanks for your patience.

glad i could help. you could also do a search on google, for "inkjet decal paper" to see if you can find it cheaper.

Hi diannab  Smiley

go here:  http://www.papilio.com/

They have cool inkjet media!

I have personally used their waterslide decal paper and their rub-on paper for inkjets with excellent results.

They also have a ton of other goodies.

If you're interested in ordering in bulk, and splitting some stuff with me, PM me..............I'd like to place an order soon, and would like to take advantage of their bulk pricing.

I hope this helped!

i've done this with acetate (it comes in big bottles at the hardware store) and images printed off of inkjet. it takes some trial and error to get it right.
