Re: [BKARTS] Traditional bookbinding [inkjet]

OK, now I'm curious. How on earth do you use an ink jet to print
on rigid materials like wood and metal?

If a printer can print directly onto a CD, as several can, it should be able to print to other inflexible media. However, that doesn't mean the media, especially an non-porous glossy one like metal, will take the wet ink all that well. Alternatively, printing to a transfer paper in any printer then ironing it to the wood or metal or whatever should work.
