Thread: Etching PNP paper

  1. #1

    Default Etching PNP paper

    Hi

    Could anyone recommend the best place to buy the blue PNP paper for etching in the UK please.

    Also - can you feed the paper through the printer more than once? ie if you don't use a whole sheet, as long as the printer will accept it, can you put it through again....

    Thanks

    What I do when I want to use small pieces of PnP is to cut them to size and tape them in place on a carrier sheet with Kapton tape (which has a high temperature tolerance). This has worked for every laser printer & copier I've tried it with.

    As for where, Maplin are probably the most convenient from memory.

    I bought 20 A4 sheets off Ebay from China (I wasn't in a rush) - cost me about 5. Came quickly and worked well in the printer and for etching. It wasn't blue though - yellow? The only problems I encountered was my own stupidity of forgetting to print a reverse image hehehe - doh!
