i don't recommend printing on paper,
hard to get them all back off
plus you get paper fibers in the mix
triggers premie germination
foil for me is best,
open faced in ziplock baggie like so-

open faced so one can inject sterile water into the baggie when making syringes,
no need to open it to unfold print.

baggies are essentially sterile from the factory until opened to insert print,
do that in a glovebox.

to sterilize both sides of the print foil squares
just cut up a bunch
and wrap the pile inside more foil,
seal it and bake at 350*F for 60 minutes.
leave sealed inside foil until you
place inside glovebox then unwrap, print and bag.

on sterilizing the foil by chemicals instead of heat-
Oust leaves a residue but iso is ok , once it evaporates off.

i do spray the outside of the baggie with Oust when i go to make syringes,
then it too is clean to touch while working.

then i just rip off the ziplock [easier than opening when gloved]
squirt in some water to wet the print,
rub the print off
and draw up the concentrated spore solution in a syringe
then i dilute that by injecting a ported jar of sterile water of the
desired amount, a print like shown above can easily make 5-10 syringes.

PS-
when printing i never pick a cap until/unless i see it dropping first,
many do not print well if at all
if picked before they start dropping.
