    I have a Roland CJ-500 converted to use eco sol max ink and was wondering if it is possible to print on metalized mylar.

    There is some out there that claims to be printable so I tested out their 5-7 year printable mirror finish mylar.

    Not so printable, lots of distortion from the solvent in the inks and it wasn't heavy coverage either. Every test surface I applied it to it curled and warped. You're better off layering printed vinyl on top of the mylar.
