    Default handprint photopolymer stamp

    finally received all my equipment and excited to get started and create some handprint charms but i am not sure that my printer is good enough.
    I have inject cannon printer and i tried to print a test strip on regular paper at first and it doesn't look black/dark enough.
    what printer will be recommended?

    I have a HP laser printer now, but I use it for loads of other things where I needed to stop the ink running if they got wet.
    You shouldn't really need one.
    I used to get along fine with an ink jet, but you need to make sure you use OHP's that are suitable for ink printers (some are only suitable for laser printers).
    When you print, you should hopefully get the option to choose type of paper / film ?
    Also choose "Best" quality print.

    You may need to up the DPI as much as you can. make the artwork a min 300 DPI, setup a new blank template in a program like Gimp or photoshop to do this. Then print on the best setting.
