Mass printing processes are the key technology to produce mass products to the point of one‐disposable. Carbon nanotube (CNT) based structures were prepared by flexographic printing using multi‐walled carbon nanotube (MWCNT) dispersions in water. The carbon nanotubes were applied to a textile substrate made of polyester and polyamide microfilaments and to both‐side coated paper to produce electrically conductive layers that can be used, for example, as heating elements. Carbon nanotube layers with sheet resistivity ranging from 0.12 to 3.00 kΩ/sq were obtained. The ratio of radiation power PS (determined according to the Stefan‐Boltzmann law) of the printed layers to the electrical power spent, represents the efficiency of the system. The samples on textile substrate with a surface temperature of 169°C have an efficiency of 25%, the paper samples with a surf
