I have boxes made from MDF which is covered with some fabric. I'd like to print stickers / labels and stick / glue them onto those boxes (and thus onto the fabric). I do have an inkjet printer capable of printing on photo paper.
The boxes are to be used by children, thus the stickers / labels need to withstand a lot of stress and wear, also including saliva.
What kind of paper should I use, and how can I glue this to the fabric? Is there some paper readily available which already has glue suitable for this purpose on it? Or which can be ironed to the boxes? (Or would this damage the box?) Is vinylic foil a possibility?
I cannot remove the fabric from the MDF to work with it - this would destroy the boxes.
