    I have been told that the brushed gold that used to be deluxe gold is discontinued. This is the only brushed gold material that I can print on with my EDGE 2 machine. Every other gold prints splotchy & sometimes doesn't print at all. Please advise of an alternative material. I need it to be 15" with perf tractor holes, double sided gold (not silver on one side) and EDGE transfer receptive. ANY help would be greatly appreciated.

    :notworthy:I bow to anyone who can find a replacement material.

    As far as I know the discontinued 3m Deluxe Gold (and silver) were only available in a shiny, mirror finish. When I needed the silver, Advantage Sign Supply recommended the VinylEFX line. The silver worked just fine with my Edge using the Deluxe Silver settings. Here are links to the shiny and brushed gold version.

    VinylEFX Smooth Gold 15" x 10 Yards

    VinylEFX Brushed Gold 15" x 10 Yards

    VinylEFX Smooth Gold 15" x 50 Yards

    VinylEFX Brushed Gold 15" x 50 Yards

    I cannot speak to whether this film is gold on both sides. Check with the distributor.

    Out of all of the gold materials we have here; all of the backs are silver & we have over 50 different flavors.... Can I ask what you're installing this on that it has to have a gold back?

    What about SignGold thermal ready?
    (I don't print but I know they used to make this for the Edge)
    It's punched, 15", gold on the back.
    It's expensive.
    Love....Jill

    After looking through my books it appears that the following "gold" materials have clear adhesive, but none of them are brushed gold:
    Oracal series 951 metallic & series 383
    3M180c-241
    FDC2100 Series
    Avery 900 series
    Avery100 Double Gold

    Is it possible that there is a "brushed gold" foil available for the Edge that you could print on clear?

    Worst case scenerio - cut a reverse copy and install on the back of the glass.

    Great answers, I'll try them all. My other option is
    Edge clear laminated to gold stock.
    I appreciate all the responses. This seems to
    be an issue no one is profiting from. Is Edge technology
    outdated? It's the best way to print chemical resistant vinyl print.

    Mostly we don't need double gold but that's the
    Only kind I have that is edge recep. We use it for
    Labels and real estate signs.
    Thanks for the response jfiscus

    For brushed gold the VinylEFX product line (mentioned above) works great in my EdgeFX.

    I'm not sure who your regular supplier is, but Advantage Sign Supply in Indianapolis seems to know their stuff about what materials work for the Edge or not if I have to order something I haven't ran before.
