What paper setting for transparencies or shrink film?

I keep reading that my printer can do transparencies, but I don't know which paper setting to choose for this media. I don't want to waste my transparency film if I can help it. For that matter, has anyone printed on inkjet shrink film? What setting did you use? Anyone know?

SOURCE: Can the Canon MX310 print on transparencies?

Manual does not mention Transparencies.
Manual states that It will print T-shirt transfers:

T-Shirt Transfers TR-301
This paper is used to create iron-on transfers. The image is printed inverted.
Paper Support Load Limit: 1 sheet
Paper Output Tray Load Limit:
We recommend that you remove the previously printed sheet from the Paper Output Tray before continuously printing to avoid blurs and discoloration.
Paper Thickness Lever: Right
Media Type:
Printer Driver Setting: T-Shirt Transfers

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

SOURCE: I want to print on transparency film; can't find it as an option

Go to the printing preference in your software driver and to the right you should see a "media type" radio button.Look through your choices and you should see a category for tranparencies.
Also make sure the the box under the media type shows auto sheet feeder.

Can't print on transparency film


In order to print on transparency film from a HP8600 all you have to do is load the paper rough side down with the white border going into the tray toward the back of the printer so that you can not see it when you look into the paper tray. The HP 8600 will auto-adjust for the film, that is why you do not have the option to select transparency like you did in the HP 8500

Use the paper option, BUT you need special inkjet transparency film. If you use normal transparency film the ink cannot dry properly and will streak.

Can i print onto Transparency film from my Canon MG 6150 as there is no setting for transparencies, what paper setting would i use


Try the setting for glossy photo media. You want a minimum of ink. Also use the transparency media intended for ink jet AND observe the correct side to be printed on.

Keeps saying paper jamed when I try to print


On the Epson website it is confirmed that the Epson WorkForce 610 will not recognize transparency media. It is just the way the printer works; if it can see through the media, it doesn't think it's there.
However.....you can tape a sheet of white paper to the non-printable side of the transparency, and it prints just fine. I put two strips of scotch tape on either side, top and bottom. Works great. It's kind of a hassle, but better than not being able to print transparencies at all!
