I recently printed on to Xpres XP3030 & 3031 Easy Print Textile using the silver ink in the BN-20. The result was awful, not even a hint of silver! In fact, it was so bad I believe I must be doing something wrong :)

digging through the setting I did find an option to 'convert to spot colour' and seem to recall this playing an important part - I hadn't selected this option, so the poor results might have been entirely my fault!

Anyone having success?

Is the material glossy, if not you will get a silver colour not a shiny metallic, to get a shine to the metallic you must use a glossy material.
