I can't see the advantage of this over magazine paper, which is free and works well.

I tried this out, but the result was a disaster. The image appeared on the board was useless:

Do you have any idea, what I'm doing wrong?

The PCB doesn't appear to be clean. It has to be very, very clean and no residue on it at all. Use Isopropyl alcohol and a clean cotton rag or paper towel as a last step.

Thanks, I'll try this. My cleaning process was good enough for the normal toner transfer. It looks not good enough for the kapton.

This is great :)
Would you mind if I added it to our makerspace howto page?
