I used Papilio and an inkjet printer. I also sprayed on clear acrylic gloss coating (the brand is Tree House, which I got from either Michael's or Hobby Lobby for $5.99)

If you don't have a wide format solvent printer then use the papillo and clear jet to laminate.

There's PhotoTex also. Also its removable. Another name for it too but can't think of it. Or I think there is.

If your using a pigment desktop you can try using different matte vinyls. Can not be glossy. I printed on some oracals before.

Also on the vinylforum.org there was a very big discussion about this year plus ago. Can check that out as there were several different vinyls and printers tested.

Good Luck

I will be using an Epson 1430 inkjet. I also have an Epson with pigmented ink. I figured I can see which ink is best. So, in order to use printable vinyl I will need: printer, printable vinyl, then I need to laminate or clear coat? After I clear coat or laminate do I apply transfer tape?

You won't need transfer tape for the Papilio printable vinyl.
