Chromaroll
« on: July 23, 2012, 01:43:39 PM »

I've just received an email from these folk announcing the availability of their product.  A metallic paper on rolls. 
Has anyone had any experience with this paper?
Thanks

$5 says this is the same as every other metallic paper on the market.

Oh no here we go again.
It's not metal it's plastic. At least this time they have a small disclaimer on the bottom of the home page calling it "aluminum microfilm"
Have to dig up my post here from several years ago where this company or a similar one tried to market it as metal.
In my post I had a picture where I lit the metal print(sic) plastic on fire.
Before I go too far with this I should back off my claim as I do not have proof this is the same product and company.
This time I will let someone else order the product for testing.

Ah, you're right! I'd totally forgotten about that Dan, which is surpising, since your photo was quite memorable :D

Make sure it is pigment ink compatible. What I recall of a similar medium is  - dye compatible -.
