I purchased and have tried to use photo decals, but when I fire, there is nothing there. I have red the instructions repeatedly. Is there a secret?September 7, 2008 at 4:00 am #10724groovyglassgirlParticipant
Yes, the secret is the ink that you print with. Are you using a laser printer?September 7, 2008 at 4:55 am #10725glassartguyParticipant
Not only do you need to print with a laser printer, it has to use carbon toner. Evidently some use a polymer that would just burn off.
For anyone who lives around Portland, Oregon. In October Bullseye is having a free class on transfering images onto glass.

Here’s are two links I found when I was considering doing photo realistic decals. It sounds like you need special "ceramic toners" in an inkjet printer for color, or a toner with a high iron oxide content in a laser printer, to get it to work. Hope this helps.
