transfer printing on wedding programs : LUSENET : polaroid transfers : One Thread

I am interested in having transfers on my wedding programs. Does anyone know of a cheap way to print them? Do color copiers work? Any ideas would be much appreciated. Thanks

Response to transfer printing on programs

I have had good success with scanning transfers, and then printing on a good inkjet printer (I use the Epson Stylus 800.) One advantage to this is that you can alter the size as needed to fit your invitation. Good luck.

A much better (but much more expensive ...) option than inkjet printers, especially concerning print permanency, is an iris printer. Iris prints can be made on watercolor paper, so texture of the original Polaroid inage transfer is reproduced.

I also use the Epson Stylus 800. I scan in the original on my UMAX scanner and print out at 8x10. They look great. Then once I have the scan I can always go get an iris print later, So far the Epson prints are still good (only 1 years old).
