That is not exactly right. You can use a water based inkjet printer on vinyl. The vinyl itself must have a special coating in order to absorb the ink.. which is not required on latex, uv or solvent based inks.

 

It can be done.. but the media materials are more expensive...

No, you need HP Latex printer to print that material.

Its DYE/Pigment water based vinyl. All major suppliers do sell it... As well as all sorts of materials such as canvas, synthetic paper, etc..

 

I am based in Europe - Portugal... So I do know a few based here and Spain... But all major distributors do have these.
