    Underwater printing

    Well, the printing itself can take place on dry land, but I was wondering if anyone is doing any waterproof printing?

    I am considering starting up my homebrew hobby, which I retired from several years ago, and I would like to make nice labels for some of the special batches.

    Anyone doing anything like this?

    Actually, I didn't think to check Epson's site first: (I have an RX500).

    They havea lot of interesting papers available. I think I'm going to try some this winter.

    Print it, then laminate the page?

    I'm not a moonshiner, but I have watched a lot of DUKES OF HAZZARD.

    Artshops (certainly used to) sell 'fixitive' spray for things like charcoal drawings, which I believe waterproofs them to an extent. Or you could just try hairspray...
