Are any of these avaialble for laser printing? I have a few recreation maps that I've done and would like to demonstrate them on water proof paper without the cost of of offset printing.


I would think that a laser printer would melt the plastic. Could you not use an ink jet?

I meant ink jet, thanks.


In the past I have used tear/waterproof paper from NatGeo (produced by Teslin) to print the hiking maps that I have made for myself. That was done on my ink jet. I don't know where to get larger sheets. The max size they sell is 8.5 x14.

I hate to derail this topic but I just got home from work and found a message on my machine from a print media vendor selling laser printable synthetic paper. She got my contact info from a 3rd party though I must assume originally from this discussion. I know she's trying to be helpful, but my gut reaction to this is negative... am I off base in feeling that questions I post on CartoTalk are not an invitation to phone solicitations from outside the board membership?

Vultures. In this economy it seems there are a lot of them.

That kinda sucks.

Sorry, I'm negative to anyone who calls me to solicit business at home.
