    You know they sell inkjet paper these days, right?
    Do you think you can do it better than Epson?

    Try some water color paper and some spray starch. Starch was used in
    older papers to keep the ink from bleeding through. L-o-n-g time ago.

    Today you can get several types of paper for inkjet and a lot easier
    than making it yourself. If you really want to try something unique.
    Make your own inks.

  7. There are companies selling special (coated?) sheet aluminum that can
    be printed on using normal ink. Google should find them for you.

    I've wondered what sort of applications one could make using the
    transfer papers for making prints on tee-shirts, for example, ironing
    the transfer sheet (printed of course) onto various surfaces other than

    Has anyone tried this, and what works? What's amusing?

    Really shouldn't be hard to find because offset printing press image
    plates are made of photo-sensitized aluminum, with photographically
    "burned" images that hold ink. They have to be wiped down after each
    use (and during long runs to make sure the transfer to paper remians
    clean) to keep the ink from drying.
