White Injet Printer

Hi Freddy
There certainly is such a machine! Try Rolands website - they have a machine that prints white. I believe it's CMYK and instead of light Cyan & Light Magenta - you have a white ink. The inks are ecoSol inks - no toxic fumes!

thats it the gerber edge is dead

great input, i like the bit about the 'the gerber is dead"
if it is i think its price has dug the grave,
they must have something up their sleeve other than their arm
or they are not listening to what people want


cheers freddy in sunny scarborough

when metallics, fluorescents are available in ink form,

i would never ditch the edge as mine makes over 2k a month in machine labels, printing on destruct vinyl, reverse printed flood coated labels, safety signs the list goes on, but for vehicle graphics/banners it has been replaced and we use our large format machine.......

I've been experimenting with my Cadet printing onto silver vinyl and I'm getting some really good effects, gives colours a metallic effect, not as good as proper metallics but nice all the same.
