For everyone that is looking for a good paper for transferring toner images, here is photographic proof that the backing of Avery brand peel-and-stick labels works great:


Uncut sheets printed on a HP laserjet printer. This is the front of one piece and the back of another.

cut piece on the brass. The purple paper is a piece of card stock to act as the carrier through my laminator.

After 10-15 trips through the laminator, the Avery paper peels right off (no soaking) and leaves a great image.

I follow this with green foil from pulsar and go to the etch tank…

Just to clarify - are you saying that you print the image on the back of the sheet, not the label side?

I peel all of the labels off and print on the exposed wax paper, not the back of the sheet.
