Default printing on acetate with epson

I have a epson picture printer that is wonderful but for the life of me can't get it to print on acetate. I have only been able to get it to pull it through and get it to print by gluing it to a piece of cardstock. That worked but the ink wouldn't dry.
There is no setting on my printer for transperencies etc. Anyone know how I can do this? If all else fails I will stamp the words I want on it but really wanted to use some nice fonts from word.
Help please!

Mary

I have not had much success printing with a printer. Like you said, the ink does not dry, the acetate will not feed well all the time. I did have an old laser printer that I loved, it would print anything, but alas, it got too old and I could not longer get ink for it or have drivers for new computers. Now I rely on stazon ink and stamp (but you don'y always have the font you want).

If you are using the laser acetate you can emboss. Embossing won't work on ink jet acetate (unless you are extremely careful) because the heat will cause the acetate to warp. Have you tried using the removable double stick tape as opossed to gluing? You would just have to run a strip across the top edge of the paper place the acetate on top of it.

I think you have to use transparencies that are made for inkjet printers, I have used them with no problems.
