Is there such a thing as a,,, or is it just a myth, I need to know,

Is there such a thing as plastic projector slides that you can print on with a ink jet or is it just a myth.
I tride printing on normal slides, but the ink didn't dry and just sat there as drops as wiped off when i put my finger on it.

Need to know, for my goody goody volentry work.

Sorry, never heard of them but I'm about to go in for an Art History lecture so I'll ask my tutor.  He's quite slide-happy so he should know.

There absolutely are - we used to use them all the time in Canada and they are quite easy to find here. Here is a link to an office supply store's online offerings: http://www.officedepot.ca/textSearch.do … 19&y=9

Anna, where do you study Art History?

Abdullacohn, Do you mean flexible plastic, like acetate, or hard plastic sheets?
Either way I am sure that you should be able to get then in an Art suppliers.
Acetate can be put through some printers,but not all of them, and it is possible to photocopy onto acetate sheets. If you write on actate you have to use permenant ink pens.

I do medieval history, just have one module of medieval stained glass which is an art history one.  Am at Manchester.   smile

My lecturer looked at me blankly then said, "Do you think I'd really spend hours doing these slides in the library if I could just run them off at home?"  Apparently he doesn't know these exist.   Thanks for the link, Stacey!

How very interesting Anna.  My daughter is studying History of Art in London.
I am quite interested in 'stained glass' and leaded light windows. I ahve made a couple of leaded lights in the past but I will not be making them again for a while as I hurt my shoulder some time ago now.
I don't know much about the medival staind glass though. I have a couple of books on the history of stained glass. thumbsup

Oh nice one.  What year is your daughter in?

To be honest, it's not the most thrilling of courses.  The lecturer can drone on for a solid two hours, and given the darkness in the room (for the slides etc.) it can be pretty hard to stay conscious!

I've used them in the UK too.  You need to read the stationary catalogue closely, otherwise things can get very messy.

A decent stationary suppliers should be able to help.  They look much better to be honest.  Indeed, I got some sheets from my Uni when I was there for the presentation of my dissertation.  Think I went to the reprographics unit and they sold it to me.  About 10p a sheet, (but is probabl ymore now).

Re: Is there such a thing as a,,, or is it just a myth, I need to know,

I just bought them, bloody expensive. They were 15 pounds for 20 sheets. THAT’S 75p each!
I'm only going to use one though, so it's £15.00 for one projector slide!!!
And do you know how much I'm getting paid for teaching this class?
Nothing!
These ones are by Staedtler who are known for being expensive, Are there any cheaper alternatives?

Draw it on a bit of card and hold it up at the front of the class?
