  • Metallic Toner?

    Hey, just wondering if someone can answer this for me,

    I have a Mono LaserPrinter from HP, Its a 6P and I've recently bought a new Toner Cartridge and I'm just lettin the current one inside runn out...

    Anyway I was just wondering, not sure if these exist but if I was fill that cartridge with another colour then it will print in that colour, right?
    Well can anyway tell me, can you get Metallic Toner, e.g. like Gold?? if so does anyone know where and can it be bought like a refil?, can a Laser Cartridge be refilled???

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    I doubt you can do this and even if you could I wouldn't recommend refilling your old black cartridge with another color.

    Toner is typically made from very fine particles and you will never be able to clean out all of the old black toner. Your new color will get contaminated with the black residue that is still in the cartridge.

    If you use two different colored toners in the printer you are probably going to do more damage to the printer than good. I would just stick with running black only.
    You want it when!? Well in that case, let me pull my magic wand out of my ass and take care of that for you.

        You could completely destroy the printer by putting in non-OEM toner. Especially of a different colour. You can only use black. Sorry.

        if you need to use an aftermarket toner, call these guys: http://futuregraphicsllc.com/list_pr...=HP/Canon%20VX

            Your Favorite Graphic Design Book

            I know this can span a wide variety of topics, but I'm curious what your favorite design book is.
            My focus is branding and logo design, but trying to build a library of design books.

            The point at which no one is able to make a living in a once thriving profession. Your ''secondary skill'' definition would be that cliff.

            There is no ''general rule''

            The idea is not to have rivers running through it. Sometimes you have to suggest to the client that they might have to change a word here and there (as long as...

            I predict that the worse case scenario is graphic design reduced to secondary skill status.

            What is ''the cliff?''
