Why use rub-on inkjet decal instead of self adhesive clear vinyl or water-slide decal?
The rub-on decal media offers certain advantages over waterslide decal paper and self-adhesive inkjet vinyl. Rub-on decals provide greater water resistance than water-slide decals not to mention clear inkjet vinyl, The rub-on decals are also thinner than vinyl and less prone to mechanical damage that may occur by the handling and use. The rub-on decals are also great to make permanent, thin decals that almost look like they are printed on. Water-slide decals are ideal for decorative items and hobby arts & craft creations whereas the rub-on transfer is a better choice for productions items. Rub-on decals will stick well to almost any substrate. Papilio Rub-on decals will accept almost any type of clear top coating. The Papilio rub-on decal media has been tested with and shows good compatibility with the following clear top coats; Oil Enamel, Acrylic, Epoxy, and two part Urethane.
- You must use Rub-On Decal Tack from HPS.

To make CLEAR/TRANSPARENT decals
1) Copy/Print on to the glossy side of the media.
2) Apply a thin coat of the Papilio Rub On Decal Tack. Let the rub on decal tack dry for a few hours, or over night. A second coat should NOT be applied.
Applying the decal.
1) Cut out the image with scissors while holding the paper at a constant 90 degree to prevent the media from sticking.
2) Apply the decal face down onto the substrate to be decorated.
3) Apply pressure to the back side of the paper using a solid object, such as a pen or pencil, working in a circular motion.
4) Use your fingers or a sharp object to lift off and discard the paper media. The artwork (decal) will remain on the substrate.
For additional durability the Papilio Rub On Decal may be cover coated with various types of solvent based cover coats: epoxy, urethane, oil enamel, acrylic, etc.
This decal paper can also be used on various types of substrates: wood, marble, slate, glass, rock, different types of plastic, metal, most painted substrates, fiber glass, cardboard, etc.
Important; Apply the adhesive and THEN cut out the decal.
If you apply the adhesive to the decal after you have cut "them" out then the edges may absorb some of the liquid adhesive into the paper (the edges), thus "gluing" or bonding the face transfer film to the paper (carrier sheet) and thereby making it difficult transfer the decal later.
The inkjet rub on decal paper is ideal for transfer to artist canvas.
