Okay so I've seen a few post here and on another of the "big four" about users printing on reflective silver paper.
And someone mentioned "silver foil". So now I'm just wondering what that is? (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/yellow.gif)
What can you use it for and what effect do you get..?
(pic examples would be grrrrrreat (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/8834.gif) )

And also if anyone knows where to buy that kind of paper/foil in Sweden..? (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/chin.gif)

I wasn't sure where to post this but here seems alright - I hope. (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/bootyshake.gif)

Swedish:
Jo det är klart jag har, men hur används det när man pysslar med covers?
Eller var allt bara ett skämt? Inte vet jag... (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/unsure1.gif)

I know aluminum/silver foil is but how do you use it with covers?
Perhaps it was all just a joke? I dunno... (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/unsure1.gif)

Ok Metallic paper also known as Film paper.
Is a reflective photo paper similar to say baking foil just only you can print on it.Alot of the silver film paper these days are designed for inkjet compatability as they have become more popular with home users who use standard printers,like the cannon/epson/lexmark/ect.

Once printed on they give of a reflective feature to the cover similar to retail Paycheck cover with ben affleck or if you remember it the old vhs cover for the film The Wraith with charlie Sheen.

Not sure about companies that deliver to sweden but i'm sure there are companies out there that do

but i use this company http://mediadepot.mtechdirect.co.uk/acatal...lic_Papers.html

ubl6612 has used this company also but haven't really heard anything from him about it.
If you do a search make sure you look for metallic film paper or maybe even give ebay a try.

here are some examples below

Yeah I'll second that!
Thanks so much for the info, that looks GREAT!
Now all I've got to do is hunt down a store which sells it..!


Edit: I checked out that link you gave to "mediapot".
Just a question for that, (my English isn't THAT good) but what does "self-adhesive" mean?
Should one buy the one with that feature or not? (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/unsure1.gif)

Thanks again! (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/cheers.gif)

Self adhesive means the non-print side is sticky so that you can stick it to something, like if you wanted to mount it on a wall. You don't want this for printing DVD covers.

It's really hard to take photos of the effect foil paper give off,but is very different from glossy paper.
Glossy gives a shine finish to any art printed on it,where as metallic film paper gives a kinda of mirror effect.

Personally i much preferre film(foil) paper as it makes alot of the covers stand out in my collection but very certain few covers out there look good on foil and some don't but once to get into printing on this stuff you get to know what covers will look good.

Like for example the fast and the furious collection i'm working will look brilliant on foil also the terminator 3 cover kylumi was working would look brill on this stuff to (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/8824.gif)

Yepp alot of silver based always look great on foil but there are covers that have alot of white areas on them that look brill too.But like said until you've tried this type of paper you won't know what looks good.

other example are here in the thread http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/index.php...opic=2876&st=20

Where you see jupes matrix collection and harvdigitydawg X-men covers haven't got metal effects on them but print amazingly on this metallic foil paper.

Think of it this way,anything thats white(which to the printer is blank) will shine through. I used some foil labels once a few years ago and had some decent results. Also i was reading something earlier that might help some people,if you print orange ink on silver paper you can get a bronze look,yellow gives you gold.

I've got 2 or 3 packs of the foil that I'll probably never use. I know a lot of people like it and use it, but I tried it out last year on a few covers (Jup's Contact, for example) and didn't like the look of them at all. I think I printed 4 or 5 covers with it total and ended up throwing them out and re-printing on my standard glossy.
