Hi LDN

Welcome to the TSF!

Most "sticker" material is made of vinyl or treated polyester.
Many sign supply companies carry this, but it's often found in rolls for digital printing and/or knive-cutting.
It can also be directly screen printed.
Here is an example company that sells it by the yard:
Sign Supplies - Montroy Sign Supply - Products - Vinyl Films & Supplies=

Many screen print suppliers carry inks for this type of stock.
Some popular brands are Coates, Sericol, and NazDar.
Here is an example tech sheet from one of them:

There's some adjustments in print technique to manage an air-dry ink,
but that's probably for another post. ;)

Happy trails!
