Printing ON metallic

Post by niksagkram » Wed Sep 02, 2015 9:55 pm

Hi all. I posted a question last week about printing metallic on Siser heat transfer material, and I got some informative answers, thanks. This week, I am going to flip it around. Has anybody tried printing ON metallic heat transfer, with success?

Thanks
Mark

Do you mean a heat transfer media with metallic surface?
Is it made for digital printing or just cutting? If not, it's a 40/60 chance.

Yes, a metallic surface heat transfer vinyl. Do have any product, just wondering if there is such a beast that a Roland can print on. (VS540, XC540)

The closest I have printed on, was reflective heat transfer media. Hope someone has something else.

I'm not aware of any digital print ready metallic heat transfer. I would order a sample role from a supplier and see what happens!

May I ask what was the reflective, heat pressable media you printed on? Would this be oaky to use on fabrics?
