    It looks similar to ultra thin engravable romark material.

    Utterly blows my mind that it can stay adhered on porous concrete in the rain.

    We've used alumagrahic in a few projects - great stuff. One of our projects was a giant mural on a brick wall. It works well on concrete "floor" graphics as well.

    What kind of printer? We tried on our Seikos with solvent inks (wouldn't work on any of the five), and on our HP FB750 (looked terrible, if I recall).

    used Alumigraphics for tile surrounding a pool... worked great. (printed on HP310 I think... may have been on our H1625)

    Roland XR-640, and also on our HP Scitex 550 - both worked well, looked fantastic. The head height needs to be raised to high on the Roland - it's pretty thick material. If it helps to know, we always use high quality settings - I probably used "Indoor signage plus" (Onyx) on the HP.

    Thanks. Maybe when I have time, I'll give it another go.

    It's fairly expensive actually. Bonus though - you can recycle the aluminum. Not the liner so much, the but alumagraphic material can be recycled. It's aluminum.

    I've found this material to be less than stellar in real life. Printing on it is near impossible on our Latex machines. Not advised.
