Great tip, Don. Thanks.

I wonder if you could print directly on the liner. Probably ink jet, though. Since its plastic.

I have not tried that Gene. Besides, I don't have an inkjet printer. If that would work it would help a lot.

how would you get the sticky side through the printer unless it was peel and stick..

and what about the ink drying heater and it effect on the contact paper...

hit some contact paper w/ a hair dryer.. guess that would be the show and tell...

Don's link says it's peel and stick. 

Here's a link to printing on plastic with an ink jet. Gotta be an ink jet. A laser printer will melt the plastic.  Link

I use the peel and stick shelf liner myself, works great.

  As for printing directly on the shelf liner, not so much, it's very curly and won't feed through a printer. It's the backer that's curly, once the backer is peeled off it loses the curliness. I've tried everything I could think of to remove or reduce the curl, vacuum press, reverse rolling, sandwiched between layers of poster board with weight on top (100 lbs+). Nothing helped.

For me the Duck brand tape leaves more residue on the wood than any other brand of tape. Thats why I use a clear tape to get away from having to clean the wood afterwards with lacquer thinner...The duck brand I bought at Walmart tears too many times while trying to remove the tape making it a frustrating adventure.

 The only place I might have any residue is where the saw blade paused and got the wood and the tape hot enough to leave a smidgen of glue on the wood but any tape I find will leave some sticky on the wood beside where the blade was running.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
