Can you print on Oracal 651? Oracal 651 vinyl is not manufactured to be a printable vinyl. Many people have success printing on 651 vinyl with a solvent ink printer. Oracal 651 is not guaranteed to be free of contaminants such as fingerprinters; therefore, it can affect print quality. The backing of 651 cannot withstand the heat emitted by the printer during the printing process, which can cause the vinyl to buckle, resulting in costly head strikes. If you try to print on Oracal 651 with a home desktop printer, the ink will just set on top of the vinyl and make a mess. So, while you can print on 651 with a solvent ink printer, you may need better results. We recommend using a print media specifically for your project. To print a short-term decal on vinyl, use Orajet 1917, which accepts the aqueous ink of a home desktop printer. If you want to print a full-color decal, call us to help you select the best vinyl for your project.
