i could be wrong, but i do not think you can buy a silver reflective.
Even white is an off white / light grey reflective due to how its manufactured.
most companies supply black, white and four primary colours.

however, Oracal / Reflexite have the largest range of reflective i know of. i think they do about 18 reflective colours, more over, their new reflectives come with ghost emblems on the vinyl surface to prove the quality of the media where required. something i think should be compulsory. with the aid of a hot air gun, their reflective is also easily removable from the vehicle when required. something i have found nearly impossible with most other brands.
They also have a digital print range of reflective and also do a range of conspicuity reflective.

I sell a lot of white reflective and the number of people who ring me asking for silver is unreal, even when I explain it is white as we don't sell a silver!

the only way you could do silver is to overprint white but, it will be a flat silver grey, not metallic.

Do they mean night time light reflective or Silver Mirror vinyl which is be definition also reflective.
We have to distinguish between the two all the time.

Silver metallic, Silver mirror and even Oracals Black reflective ( at an angle) can all be mistaken, by some, as a silver reflective as they are all reflecting light at some degree
