    Hi,

    I got a magazine a while ago with an order of convex I had purchased and I just looked through it the other day. I know that the only medal (chrome) colors that Gerber sells in their medal gold, blue, red, and silver. In the magazine I read that to make any color chrome they said to print silver medal and add a transparent color over top. Is that correct? Like if I wanted to make a chrome yellow, green, or orange, I would have to print silver medal and then print a transparent yellow, green, or orange over it? Is this correct? If not, what is the correct way to make any color chrome/medal?

    Thank you in advance

    that makes sense to me. I have almost all transparent foils and silver medal I and II.
    I can try a sample for you - running omega 6.5

    I'd prefer to print transparent on chrome vinyl...but it may work both ways.

    If you would like to try a sample that would be great, I do not own a silver foil so I would be unable to print a test print now but if it is not a big deal to you that would be awesome! Thank you
