    I have an HP L28500 laytex and was wanting to print off some graphics out of aurora graphics art. Tried printing off diamond plate, silver brush plate, punch engine turn to name a few. The colors don't look silver and some are not even close. I know my printer don't print metallic or silver. Really was wanting to know if there was a work around so you can make it kinda look like those colors or fake out the printer so it can kinda. Cant image that aurora graphics would have all of those neat graphics not to be able to print them on any machine. Any help would be great.

    Thanks in advance

    I've printed their diamond plate, silver plate and engine turn gold to name three with excellent results on a Mutoh Jr and on an Epson pigment printer. Their fills are very good.

    Not sure what rip you use, but have you tried to select " use color correction"?

    I am running production house 10.2. Now sure what you mean by color correction? Where would I do that at? In production house or photoshop?

    Thanks

    Aurora stuff is just filters from Alien Skin sold to you for a mark up. Good art since you don't need to do it yourself ... but here.

    http://www.alienskin.com/eyecandy/examples.aspx

    Make your own diamond plate (black shadows on white background) print on clear, apply over silver vinyl ... metal diamond plate.

    edit- forgot one.

    the other half of aurora stuff is filter forge.

    http://www.filterforge.com/

    I use engrave from there almost religiously.
