    Looking to print labels with roland eco Sol printer. The material can be written on to give the date of last service/inspection. Its pretty thick so the indent of the pen is left behind permanently. Have attached a photo.
    Would really appreciate any help with the name of the material.

    All I can tell you from that photo is it's probably vinyl, and it isn't laminated.

    Appreciate the information. Sorry I forgot to say these are going on the mast of a forklift truck. The material seemed thicker than the usual.

    Its aluminum not vinyl. Id think youd be better off to sub out to a company that does these or passing. I dont know for sure but Id bet the process to produce these efficiently falls outside the scope and capability of a regular sign shops equipment.

    I used to work in a factory and used this type of aluminum label for machine identification. Adhesive was once and done. If you got it crooked removing it resulted in destroying the label.

    Aluminum coated vinyl or a silver vinyl. Kind of like led tape (soft material)

    Did you ever find a material to do this with your solvent printer? I am looking to do the exact same thing
