Film-free decal paper is unique in it's kind because in the end it only leaves the toner on the surface. It has some learning curve but the result is like no other and offers new possibilities! As only the thin toner is transferred to the surface, less varnish is needed to enclose the decal with teh surface. Even without any finfishing products the decal is very resistant to scratching, water and so washing by hand is possible, the use of a dishwasher might be possible but is not guaranteed.
The finished decal is not foodsafe, not even after baking for 30minutes ate 250 Degrees Celsius.

Of which are metals, glass, ceramics, and a lot of plastics, even sealed surfaces like wood with a clear coat. Please note: a adjustable hot airgun or a good hairdryer is needed to dry the glue.
The material is ment for laser printers but can also be used with Solvent, UV printer and thermal transfer printers like microdry.
