Default ? about shrinky dink and computer

Hi
I was wondering if I could use my computer to print an image on shrinky dink sheets. I know I can stamp on them after I sand it. What do you think about using the printer?
Thanks for any advice.
Pam

I have done it and it does work, although I used the shrink plastic that is made especially for computer printers.

Just to say that you really do need to use the shrink plastic that is specially formulated for using in printers.

I use Darcie's Heart & Home for ink jet printers. If its not for ink jet printers it won't ever dry. If you like the look of Darcie's they have a couple of great CD's with most of their seasonal images. Very cute indeed!

thank you for the advice. I was going to use regular shrinky dink. I will wait until I can get some for the printer.
