    Default white ink jet?

    As part of an art project, I need to print the color white on transparency film. (it will be set on top of black paper) I donít really have time to screen print it. Do I have any options here? I know my ink jet obviously doesnít print white.. Does anyone know if Kinkos has the ability to print white?

    Thanks.

    i highly doubt kinkos can do much of anything. they once told me there was a 24 hour turnaround on making a single b&w 8.5x11 transparency. i stared at the girl for about 30 seconds, started laughing, and went somewhere else.

    Default white-out

    I've used a stencil and white-out...or white paint.

    You could go to a sign shop that has an edge machine and have white film put on transparent vinyl.

    Might be expensive though.

    do they still do that omnicrom(?) stuff? I used to use that for this sort of thing. It's a coloured film that you run through a heat roller along with your photocopy and the film adheres to the toner- so the black toner takes the colour of the film.

    This is kind of a dumb question.

    my printer friend said some of the large format printers use white ink. they print on crazy 3m materials and need the white ink. wish i had more info than that for you.
