Adzon's Adam Bandiera was excited to show us around his stand at Visual Impact 2015, and in particular, to demonstrate his Reflectra products.
The exclusive Australian distributer of the entire range of Refllectra materials, Adzon was attracted to the product because its reflective material brings designs to the next level, providing a look that he believes "truly stands out".

Suitable to transfer onto textiles like cotton, mixtures of polyester/cotton and polyester/acrylic, Reflectra Plotfoil/Stitchfoil can be used for lettering on T- shirts, sport & leisure wear, sport bags and promotional articles. It is available in sheets only (30cm x 45cm) as both a plotter-cut (plotfoil) and an embroidable (stichfoil).
(However, it cannot be used with nylon, dazzle cloth, or shiny polyester - dye migration has occurred with low energy dyes in polyester and poly-blend fabrics.)
Reflecta Plotfoil/Stichfoil comes in the following ranges:
The Plotfoil/Stitchfoil Star, available in black, red, green, royal blue, pink, white, orange, yellow, silver, gold and "sensation"
The Plotfoil/Stitchfoil Neon Star, available in Neon Red, Neon Blue, Neon Pink, Neon Green, Neon Orange and Neon Yellow
The Plotfoil/Stitchfoil Scratch, available in Black/Gold; Black/Silver; Red/Silver; Pink/Silver; Purple/Silver; Gold/Gold; Silver/Silver and Sensation/Silver.
The Plotfoil/Stitchfoil Neon Scratch, available in Neon Red/Silver; Neon Blue/Silver; Neon Pink/Silver; Neon Green/Silver; Neon Orange/Silver and Neon Yellow/Silver.
Adam confirms that Reflecta can be cut with all current plotters. "We recommend using a standard 45° knife. After weeding the cut flex film is transferred by heat press. The PET liner should be removed after cooling down. Afterwards we recommend pressing the material for another 20 seconds with the same parameters," he says.
