    I'm looking for a silver polyester adhesive backed material we can print with our Roland. This is for equipment labels that get a sharpie marker ID # and then covered with a clear laminate for protection by the customer. It's for small runs that I need to keep in house. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    r-tape makes some products you can use but they are vinyl coated. in my experience i could never get the roland ecosol ink to stick to polyester materials (chrome, brushed or matte silver/gold)

    Roland EcoSol MAX adheres very well to http://www.rtape.com/vinylefx/outdoor-durable-smooth-silver

    The only issue I have is contour cutting close to printed areas.
    The spec sheet says no cuts within 5mm, and I have to agree or it will start to peel (even after 6 weeks dry time before cutting).
    Lamination didn't help either.

    We have a product without adhesive like this. All you would have to do is put a double faced adhesive on the back of it. It works with Mutohs eco solvent inks so it should work with Rolands.

    We use R-Tape brand in silver and holographic for a clients product. No complaints so far and it's been 2 years.
