Re: [BKARTS] Inkjet question (printing on tyvek)



Hi Again

Yes, if you search there are a few places that coat tyvek for inkjet,
but it comes in rolls only, not sheets.

Sheets are also made, but you have to coat them by hand with something like
InkAid.

Otherwise Tyvek prints great and is eternal.
