Hello roomies!

I have just found an interesting product on the net-inkjet shrink plastic!

I was wandering if anyone has tried it and if so what the results were?

Thanks

Saffa

I actually got a piece of this free from Avery, but I haven't used it yet - it's on my mental list!

I got a really fab card in one of the card swaps from Nick, purplepenguin. It was a cute Shrink Plastic House that looked like it had been done with a stamp. When I asked how it was done it turned out it was a Picture font with Inkjet Shrink Plastic. It's a really lovely effect and when Ive used some of my stuff I have, I may just have to have a play with it!

You are such a MEANIE!

Yep, it's great stuff, I've used it to print some of our photographs on to make cards with. You have to be very careful about the colours though - keep them really pale because they intesify quite dramatically once they are shrunk.

It's a good idea to fade the colours down - much more than you'd think you'd need to before you try a print.

Thanks for the tip, Kathy - I'll remember that when I eventually get around to using it. (not quite sure where it is!)

Love Hazel

If you don't mind me asking where did you get the shrink plastic from?

That is a good point, you reminded me that I might have a free sample from Avery, I will have to dig around and find it if I haven't used it already. I think I may have though!

Found it - printed on it - cut it out - melted it - ruined it because I couldn't work out that there was a backing sheet on it, despite trying to see if it peeled off!

Worked it out after I had tried to shrink unsucessfully so it is ruined now!
