Most of the small decal makers today use a laser printer.
What printer and what INK will make the decal just OK to a decal almost as good as a commercial screen print decal.
C h e a p laser ink is very transparent....much like ink jet. GOOD ink is iron based and much more like a normal decal.
The brand of printer has a lot to do with it too.
Laser printers print white now too if you have the white ink and the type printer that will handle it.
That\s the basics. I went laser for my decals about 18 years ago. They can work very well when made with the best methods.
