Re: [BKARTS] metallic photocopies



Hi,
Omnicrom is a priduct that operates exactly as you describe. It will adhere
to the toner of a photocopy.
The special foil is applied with heat and could be purchased as either a
ribbon - for colouring the headline only - or an A4 sheet - to colour the
whole page.
The heat could be applied by using the photocpoier, a smoothing iron or the
Omnicrom machine.
Haven't seen it recently though.

Subject: [BKARTS] metallic photocopies


| I remember a product from several years ago which you could iron over a
| photocopy which would leave a metallic (or plain color) adhered to where
| there was any toner.  Doing a websearch, the only thing I came up with was
a
| product by Letraset called "Omnicrom,"
| <http://www.letraset.com/us/template3.asp?catid=104> but the description
| says it is to be used with an "Omnicrom Machine" (sounds very ominous,
| doesn't it?).  Does anyone know what Omnicrom is?  Or does anyone know
what
| other products can achieve this effect?
|
| Thanks for any leads,
| Eric
