I see a problem with this though. Wouldn't you have to worry about the heat affecting the adhesive and possibly causing the backing to shift? Not sure even if I had the money if I would want to risk it to print on vinyl.

I wonder how something like THIS would work? It's kind of expensive but could be beneficial for detailed work that tracing would be a pain.

if you're seriously considering a thermal printer, just get a plotter

I think they make vinyl for it . I know I used bumper sticker paper like this. The trick here is if you use bumper sticker paper is to make sure your heat stays under 130 or you’ll have lots of bleeding
