Where can I get silver metallic ink that I can run though an Epson or HP inkjet printer?
Also check out Collins Custom Inks: http://www.collinsink.com/collins_custom.php
"Our TMW 9009-01 is a conductive, metallic silver ink. Other metallic colors, besides Silver, may be available in the near future. Please contact us to discuss any new developments regarding our line of metallic inks."
I apologize for your poor experience with Collins. However, I believe there has been some miscommunication. For 20 years, we have specialized in industrial inkjet inks for the mailing/addressing, package coding, transactional etc. markets. We have a wide variety of black inks, spot colors, inks for difficult substrates, and bulk solutions. If one of our inks doesn't meet your needs, we can custom create an ink for your specific application. Yet, we have never claimed to have inks for photo printers. As the previous post explains, we did have a metallic silver ink for the HP 45a cartridge, which was typically used to create decorative impressions. The reason you were told to check back in a few months is because our supplier of raw silver material, discontinued their product. Collins has a very thorough testing and validation procedure which has eliminated most possible replacement materials. Due to this, we continue our search for an acceptable silver.
Again, I apologize that we could not be of assistance for your application, but just to be clear, Collins manufactures industrial inks for:
- HP TIJ 45A technologies
- Kodak Versamark printing systems (2.77', 4”, and 9")
- CIJ and DOD printheads
- UV curable systems
Collins has been so successful because of our close relationship with our customers. If you have questions or concerns, please contact us.
Check out the Roland inkjet printer that prints metallic ink, I think lists for around $8K.
OR the Epson WT that prints white ink (on a metallic substrate - get very nice metallic FX).
www.Color-Logic.com is a very cool metallic FX system - provides the design tools for Photoshop and Illustrator to add very cool FX.
maybe a long shot, but have you looked up toner foil. it works after you print on laser printer you put it through a laminator and the foil sticks to the laser print. then i assume you can print again over the top of it... ?????
lol just realised this original post is 5 years old
