About all I can tell you is that Alps is a brand of printer. Personally,
I'm still using a dot matrix printer from 1990, heheh...(not for decals, of
course!). I remember reading something about them using a 'waxy' type of
ink (which allowed them to print white), which is why your waxy printer
sounds like it would work. Also, some types of inks are water soluble, and
the decals will run when soaked in the water.
