"Just an update, I have reprinted and the Metallic Color chart prints the same as in my art work but the reds are still brown..... I am printing on clear vinyl which probably has something to do with it. I look forward to some ideas. Thanks. Ed"

As a test, I printed it on clear vinyl and there was no metallic on the base when I peeled away the backing.The…See More

Please Setup Media Again."Does anyone have a trick whereby I can feed this job in again so that I can print over it? I doubt it but I thought I'd let the clever people confirm it :)I…See More
