Frequently Asked Questions
How does this work?
The patented formula prints methyl violet dye on the paper which becomes the stencil that is transferred to the skin. The formula has been developed to ﬂow through the inkjet printer without clogging. It works really well.
Can I use any inkjet printer?
The formula will work in any Epson EcoTank printer. Several models are available.
Can I use a printer I have already?
No. You must use a new printer.
How do I fill the cartridge?
There is no cartridge. The printer has four tanks that hold the ink.
How many stencils will this print?
Four ounces of our ink will print approximately 3,000 stencils when you select full color option to print.
What paper can I use?
Any off the shelf paper will work in the printer. We recommend Pacon Tracing paper as it has been tested and works well. Other tracing papers may also work. You have the option to choose what ever paper you prefer. Several artists use plain white paper which also works.
Do I need to ﬂip the image?
The image that is printed will be transferred to the skin, image side down. If the image has text or is not symmetrical you will need to ﬂip the image in your image editor before printing.
How will it print?
The image will print just as you send it to the printer. Use your photo editor to adjust the contrast, lightness, size, etc. Selecting black only or full color option will print from one tank or all four respectively. Experiment with variations to ﬁnd your optimal stencil result.
Can I get refills?
Yes. We will continue to produce and sell the patented ink formula for refills in 4 oz bottles.
How long with the stencils last?
Once the stencil is on paper it can be used any time. The methyl violet will be reactivated with Stencil-prep® when transferred to the skin. This system allows the methyl violet to dye the skin cells and the stencil will not rub off.
Can I use any stencil transfer product?
Yes, however Stencil-prep® will result in a darker stencil transfer on the skin.
Can I travel to conventions with this printer?
This system is not designed to be portable. If you drive to conventions you can certainly take it with you. We will be offering this stencil printing system to tattoo convention producers with the intention of having InkJet Stencils available at any convention.
