Note: this decal paper is ready to use out of the package. It is a water-slide transfer paper that is pre-coated with a state of the art clear decal material that is soft yet strong.

this media is specially made for thermal Wax color printers such as ALPS printers. Many of our customers have reported success using this media in office copiers and some laser printers. Please see the precautions at the end of this page or in the header of this page about using this or any specialty media in your laser printer.

Use this decal paper to place images on: wood, glass, metal, ceramic/porcelain, CD's, even the mouse you have in your hand as you read this. And that's just the beginning. Our customers are constantly surprising us with the creative uses they come up with for our decal paper. Such as adding photos or artwork to wax candles. 

we recently received an e-mail from a customer who places custom wedding photos and artwork onto large pillar candles. She let us know that our decal paper has helped to move her small business in a new and more profitable direction.

Another customer let us know he has been using our decal paper to transfer images of cartoon characters onto custom built wooden furniture for children.

the possibilities are endless. Let our paper and your imagination work together to create a new and exciting product or idea.

this paper is NOT compatible with ink jet printers. For water-slide decal paper for inkjet printers take a look at our IAS or WIAS paper.

*this paper may be used in most late model personal office copiers and laser printers.   However, we do not recommend that.  If you are looking  for Decal paper to use in laser printers and copiers, we recommend our Papilio Perga Flat Paper or for newer, higher heat, color laser printers we recommend our PAS/Z media.


Using Papilio Aqua Slide Paper

Print a mirror image onto the PAS paper using your ALPS printer or late model personal copier or laser printer. Test your design on plain paper first to prevent media waste.

Cut out the decal with scissors and dip it in warm water. the paper will curl up, then straighten out again.

Place the paper on the surface face down so that the film is touching what you wish to decorate and the paper is facing up. Slide the paper away leaving the film behind. Now use a decal squeegee to remove any air bubbles, and let dry.

After drying you can use our liquid laminating spray to offer UV protection and improved adhesion to the substrate. 

It is important to remember that the decal film is clear, and not white. Any white in your image/text must be provided by using a white paint or applying the decal to a white substrate.

Ceramic Plates: Our PAS media is NOT intended for firing. Ceramic plates decorated with PAS decals make beautiful wall hangings but are not suitable for food bearing.

Porcelain/Ceramic Mugs: PAS decals look great on ceramic mugs. It is important to note however that mugs decorated with PAS decals should be washed carefully with a non abrasive soap and are not dishwasher safe.

Wax Candles:  Applying decals to wax candles is easy. Simply apply the decal to the candle as you would to any other substrate. Heating the decal with a hair dryer may help if adhesion is an issue due to the wax of the candle.

Wood and general Applications: we recommend that you only apply decals to finished or painted wood. the process is the same with metal and all other painted substrates.

You can experiment with placing a decal on an item before the paint is fully dry if using an oil enamel based paint. When the paint is dry to the touch, but not fully cured apply the decal then your clear coat if desired. the water used to apply the decal should not harm the oil enamel paint. Oil enamel usually takes 24 hours to fully dry, we suggest applying the decal after 8 hours, but this can vary greatly depending on humidity, temperature, and other factors. Use this technique to finish your items with very durable decals.

If you don't put the decal face down, your Alps ink will not be protected and when finishing with clear coat you will run into compatibility problems, as the Alps ink will not accept just any solvent-based clear coat.

we offer water-slide decal for a wide variety of laser printers. Including our new PASZ decal paper which can be baked onto substrates by baking the decal onto the finished item after application.

HPS manufactures and sells a wide variety of media for a broad range of color laser printers as well as dry ink printers. Whether it is our water-slide decal paper, clear or white self-adhesive film, true static cling media, or our new ultra cling low tack adhesive media you are sure to find something to meet your needs.

WARNING: When using laser media it is critical that you follow the provided instructions exactly. If not used properly poor image quality or even printer damage may result.

When testing for compatibility with your printer, always start with a "Plain Paper" setting. Never try setting such as "High Gloss" or "Transparency" without first testing for compatibility with a "Plain Paper" setting.
