Metamark MD3 Gloss white

Post by winktype » Wed Jan 18, 2017 4:04 pm

Hello, I have been the happy user of a Roland BN 20 for over 5 years now and a couple of years ago discovered what I believe is the best printable vinyl (it is for my purpose anyway), that being Metamark MD3 gloss. I have been able to buy this in 500 mm widths to suit the machine, but my current supplier has informed me that they have discontinued this product and have changed to another. I have sampled the new product and am not too impressed at all, it is thicker and does not handle/weed as well. I have contacted Metamark who have been less than helpful, so my question is does anyone know where I can buy this from going forward. Thanks

Supprised at metamark perhaps it's the size I would have another go at them..
You may have to bite the bullet and have a 1500 wide log cut down but some suppliers will not cut down print material due to possible contamination

Is it that the width isn't available anymore or the actual media type?

Hi chaps

Did anyone find an alternative to the Metamark 500mm vinyl? I've been using this too, and since Xpres no longer stock it I can't find a supplier. The 500mm Poli-Tape they now supply is less adhesive/less conformable and unsuitable for my needs.

Cheers
Steve
