Printmaking Carrier Sheets - Polypropylene, 0.015" (0.381 mm)


Printmaking Carrier sheets are used to "carry" an inkAID coated custom substrate (paper, fabric, film, etc.) through your printer by attaching the coated substrate to the carrier sheet.

Printmaking Carrier sheets should be no thicker than 0.4 mm (0.016 inch). Most printers can use media from 0.6 to 1.3 mm total thickness. For example, a postcard is 0.41 mm thick and standard printer paper is 0.1 mm thick. Check your printer specifications for information.

Here's how to use and set up a carrying sheet with your substrate.

Printmaking Carrier sheets can also be used to build a custom acrylic printable skin by applying acrylic mediums such as Golden Fluid Acrylic Paints, Golden Acrylic Fluid Medium, Golden Clear Tar Gel and Crackle Paste, Golden Glass Bead Gel directly to the carrying sheets, and after drying, applying inkAID Clear Gloss Type II, inkAID White Matte, or other inkAID coating.  

The resulting printed "acrylic skin" can be applied to other backing substrates and in collaging as shown here.
