In the near future (maybe this summer?), I plan on trying out my hand creating a PCB (for what, I don't know - maybe for the high-power servo controller I am working on) using the "laser printer toner transfer" process.
In most of the online how-to's I have read regarding this process, the author invariably reccommends using glossy magazine paper as opposed to commercial transfer paper options. This makes sense, and such magazines can be found everywhere, as trash usually.
So I am sitting here, going thru my mail, when instead of tearing up and throwing away a stack of "ValuPak" coupons, I realized they were composed on (fairly thin) glossy paper, and I just happened to remember the reccomendation about glossy paper for PCB etching...
Has anyone here successful used such thin glossy paper? Have I been throwing away what I should be saving?
