    Have you ever seen pics printed on some sort of paper that has a silvery sheen to them. Take this album cover for example.

    Where a normal printer would print the chrome parts white, this is a silver. What's this process called. Anyone fimiliar with it? I'd like to some of my car shots on this paper.

    Halochrome (made by Rockland, I think) turns the black part of the image silver. It's like a toner.

    Cachet/Fappco makes a silver printing paper; the blacks are black, the whites are silver.

    There are other options I'm sure. These two can be found at www.freestylesalesco.com

    Well, as the saying goes...
