    I don't understand which product you're trying to match. The link goes to a field of planted crops for me.

    Sorry if the link was in-correct. BigFish, really, absolutely no alternative in the market?

    Yeah, we also ran it on our Seiko Solvent printer, clogs up the heads because of the fibers that come off, not a good thing. We ended up using it on the flatbed, our head height is high to avoid the fibers.

    Well got to hand it to them for coming up with a biodegradable products '
    Instead of filling our landfills with vinyl, & waxed paper or any thing else that our market has they have found a way to replace.

    .

    Trust me I would love it if there was but this is a super unique product that was created by them and I have never seen anything close to it.

    The closest alternative would be bioflex from Ultraflexx but its nothing like Nature Woven.

    Just looked at my Ultraflexx book, BioFlex is way off to even be compared. Are you sure about that?
    To verify I am looking at BIOflex FL-15oz.

    Are you trying to match the biodegrable part or the look of a potato sack burlap bag?

    Do you they have a new website? The naturaladcampaign.com won't work for me.

    I've tried both products with my L26500. Great stuff, except it smell like melted plastic when you print it. There was roller marks in the smooth one (don't remember the name) and the manufacturer did not want to replace it. I've used it for personal projects, but can't sell it.
