How'd you get it thru the printer? Cut it down to 8.5 x 11" size?
Can you post a link?
Print the PCB image on paper. Cut a piece of vinyl to cover the image. Remove backing from vinyl. Adhere vinyl over printed image.The original printed paper becomes the carrier for the vinyl. Run the paper with the vinyl affixed through the printer again.
Yeah, I'm not seeing the rationale for the 2nd printing either.
Then how do you transfer it to the PCB? Hot iron? or just stick it?
And the one tho OP is taking about the vinyl paper that keeps it from sicking you remove it print on it place the vinyl back on and iron it peel the vinyl place on copper and iron it on then just peel it off and etch. I been looking for the second way can't find the link. http://en.electroni-city.com/
I'm thinking that it's so you can just use a small section of vinyl the right size for what you want. With sticking it to the paper then you can put it back through the printer.The alternative would be to put a full vinyl sheet tthrough the printer and then cut out a small section afterwards.I'm guessing as much as you, but that's the only thing that seems logical to me at the moment.
you print onto normal paper just so you can see what you need to cover with a vinyl 'patch'.Then cut a piece of vinyl just big enough to cover the area to print, leaving the rest of the paper uncovered.Then run it through the printer again to print the PCB onto the glossy side of the vinyl.I guess you then transfer from the vinyl to copler by using an iron, heat press or laminator?
How well does it work for thin pitch? (0.5mm) The problem I have with my photo paper is that with fine picthes (less than 1mm) the photo paper gets transfered and stuck in between traces along with the toner. I end up having to scrape in between traces with a knife.
