Owns a Stahls Heat Press

Okay, so I finally used my metallic. The print is amazing on my BN-20. I found out that my tack wasn't strong enough, so I ordered the solutions mask and the heavy tack(strong). I tried it today and it picked up the design, but some spots still puckered and it wasn't as easy as my express print. I believe I overcooked it, I just read the instructions and the temp is a lot lower than express print and the press is a lot shorter. LOL! I am reprinting and hopefully I can get a good result in the end. I love the paper and wish it wasn't being discontinued. When I got my machine, I was told to do the double Magenta since I could buy the metallic. So now we won't be able to?? Not good! Will I be able to use metallic ink now in the Magenta space? I know that once I use metallic or white, I can't go back, but can I go from Magenta to Metallic?

while the video shows how to apply it it doesn't first tell you how to print it-- which side is print and which carrier. that would help the new person. beyond that, wish they wouldn't discontinue it (thought the 50% off price is more appropriate than regular price)... always get ooo's and ahhh's from people and is one of the reasons when i got my roland versacamm i chose not to get metallic ink... who needs it with this product around? ps, live chat seems not to want to answer questions. you submit one and you have to either repeat yourself, and a few more "???" or a "hello?" to get a response. might want to check that out.

I love printing on the metallic. It gives the design an extra shine and glow. Easy to use! Please keep making this product.

 Awesome product! I'll be sorry to see it go...

I got great results on my first try. I love the metallic sheen and the feel of it. Have to be careful weeding it because the carrier is really low tack and you can easily pull up everything by accident but once you get used to the way it behaves weeding gets faster and kind of fun. While I do like getting it at half price, I wish it wasn't being discontinued.

 Best Metallic on the Market

Hate to see this discontinued! We have tried finding a replacement for this metallic and nothing has compared. Weeding, printing, and cutting has been the easiest out of all we have tested.

Love this product. Printing on the metallic finish gives the design such an added enhancement. Very easy to use. Holds ink well. Sad to see it go because it really makes the design so much better. I have used the gold and silver.

This product has its uses, when you need it the results are incredible. And no you cant use it in a laser printer. If your unfamiliar with using digital heat transfer then dont try it. When we show customers the effect they are blown away. Highly recommend it. Sorry to see it go. Maybe a less nasty review by someone who clearly was in over there head will keep it off the chopping block.

make sure pressure is on 80. will cut just fine, you can't mirror this media, you cut reg, use a mask to pull off then place on material. people giving these bad reviews are people not doing it correctly getting frustrated and giving bad reviews. i had trouble figuring out at first but now its easy. lets rock and roll

 If I could give this zero stars I would!

I took a chance on buying this. First I asked them whether or not a laser printer would work with this product and I was given the response that I would need to use exactprint paper with it. This was not right information whatsoever. I receive it and see that I needed the solutions mask as well. I ordered three colors, metallic silver, metallic gold, and metallic white. I was able to successfully print on this paper BUT the mask solutions rips it off! I used my cutter and it cut the vinyl just fine but this is so fine that peeling it is a nightmare! I was hoping this would make my image look really pretty and unfortunately there was no way to receive a sample of this. I bought one yard of the colors I mention PLUS the solutions mask and now I will be unable to use ANY of it. Wasted like $100. DON'T buy this unless you want to pull your hair out, total waste of money. So sad this didn't work!
