Clear InkJet Film

CASEYS' CLEAR INKJET FILM™ is a high-quality polyester film designed for InkJet printers using Photographic Dye-Based ink. Screenprinters use our Clear InkJet Film as a positive for burning screens. This is an inexpensive alternative to using a camera.

Please Note: Caseys' Clear InkJet Film only works with InkJet (liquid ink type) printers using Photographic Dye-Based ink. It is not compatible with Ultra Chrome ink. For Ultra Chrome ink printers click here.

Because we have discovered many users are experimenting and substituting inks and they are unsure of the type of inks they are using, we suggest that you purchase a trial sheet for $1 per sheet before purchasing an entire package.

A NOTE ABOUT CLEAR INKJET FILM: Some InkJet printers use a photo detector to sense the presence of film and can't detect the clear film. A work around is to tape the film to a piece of paper or place a black mark at the top of the film using a felt tip pen.

Note: Caseys' Ultra Black will not work with InkJet ink.

A TIP THAT MAY SAVE YOU A LOT OF MONEY:
From JMA Printing, Dorina Colburn (509) 395-2145.
Dorina is using an HP 5600 InkJet printer and is printing directly onto Caseys' Translucency instead of the Clear InkJet Film. The settings are Paper Type - Transparency, Highest quality. The HP 5600 ink is Vivera and it dries in approximately 5 minutes.
NOTE: Caseys' Translucency was designed for laser printers NOT InkJet printers.
