Printing on Tyvek

From: Mark Vine <100436.3447>

Tyvek is commonly used as a tag or label for museum objects, a
number of museum custodians have asked what method might be employed
to produce printed labels.

A few years ago we tried unsuccessfully to produce some labels using
a commercial laser printer, the printer jammed during use and the
repair costs were significant enough to prevent us from trying

Other than using hand applied writing implements can anyone suggest
a process that they have used themselves successfully for printing
directly onto a 110 gsm (approximately 8 pt thickness) tyvek sheet.
