German term or phrase: sich verdrucken lassen
Ernst and Pons both say "verdrucken" means "to misprint", but I don't think that would makes sense here (unless it means "even under optimal printing conditions normal ink doesn't work right"). Pons has "ease of printing" for "Verdruckbarkeit. Based on that, could it mean "normal inks can also be used under optimal printing conditions?"

Wichtige Praxishinweise für [printing on special types of paper]:
• Rein oxidativ trocknende Druckfarben (Folienfarben) verwenden –
diese werden von allen Farbherstellern angeboten. Unter optimalen drucktechnischen Rahmenbedingungen lassen sich auch normal (wegschlagend + oxidativ) trocknende Farben verdrucken.

agree  Klaus Herrmann: inks can be used (it's obvious that the ink isn't used as a shampoo so I'd drop 'for printing').

agree  xxxCMJ_Trans: under optimum conditions it is also possible to print with these other inks
