    Peace Therious!

    I've worked with printers for the last seven years and have never come across such a machine. There is "custom printed toilet paper" but usually for display.

    I had a client years ago who came up with the idea to print advertising on the toilet paper in rest rooms. That idea when down the toilet. Only because he wanted the user to be able to use it as well.

    It's not impossible, just expensive. Toilet paper companies that print patterns on toilet paper use very large machines to do so. Also most of them manufacture these own papers that fit the machines. These papers come in giant rolls that is then cut down later into the rolls we purchase on the market.

    You should still do more research and find something conducive to your budget or business plan. But don't research toilet paper manufacturing perse. Research the materials toilet paper is made from, and the special dyes you will need for on skin contact.

    If you want to print on toilet paper for just display, you're fine. You can use a regular printer than does thermal imaging on soft paper.
