    I have a customer who wants clear static clings printed with white and metallic inks. I need like (6)4’x8’ prints. I’m in Pennsylvania and am seeing if anyone knows anyone that can do this. Any help would be great. Thanks

    The only semi-durable metallic inks are screen print. You wont find anything digital. Especially if you're talking direct to board printing.
    The official way to do this here would be cut vinyl.

    Depending on the quantity one has to make a choice silk screen or digital / vinyl. If the quantity is high hit me up I have a source for a 10ft M&R silk screen press in California.

    I personally don't think 6 pcs is enough to warrant screen printing something like this, especially at that size, but I suppose it all depends on the design.

    Since it's on clear, I would UV print the cmyk + spot white aspects, then back the whole thing in metallic silver vinyl.

    That's the route I would go if we were producing in house.

    Thats a good option just be careful the shrink rate of metallic to the vinyl you choose may be different in sunlight.

    Can it be printed in separate pieces to make the 4' x 8' ? I can print on static clean but my edge fx has a 11.8" but can be very long. Whats the art look like?
