Inkjet Printers and Stencils

For many years, thermal printers have been the primary tool for tattooers looking for a fast, reliable stencil maker. Today inkjet stencils are raising the bar in stencil quality and convenience.

What is an inkjet stencil:

Rather than utilizing a thermal printer, inkjet stencils use Epson Ecotank printers made especially for tattoo stencils. These stencil printers work similarly to traditional inkjet printers, trading normal printer ink and letter paper for specially made tattoo stencil ink and paper. You apply these stencils the same way as thermal printed stencils.

What are the advantages of inkjet printers?

The biggest advantage of inkjet stencils is the greater amount of detail that can be captured in the image, making them a great choice for realism and fine line artists. You also have the ability to directly modify and print the image right from your computer using the photo editor of your choice. Unlike traditional thermal printers, inkjet printer technology is consistently improving in quality and affordability.

What are the disadvantages of inkjet printers?

Inkjet printer start up costs can be expensive, depending on the printer model chosen, as well as the cost of stencil ink. However, per stencil, they are much cheaper than thermal printed ones. Adding stencil ink to the printer’s reservoir can also be messy. 

We hope this information helps you decide if inkjet stencils are the right choice for you!
