Inland Blue PETG is translucent and shiny. The blue color is deep and rich. This PETG prints well once you have tuned your print settings.

Inland from Microcenter is one of the least expensive filaments available. They have a wide selection of color and it prints fine most of the time. In general though, the Inland colors are less saturated, sometimes transparent, and can have inconsistent shade on large prints. Inland comes on a 1KG vacuum sealed roll with a plastic spool. Some specialty rolls are sold in half kilograms, such as color changing filament. If shopping locally watch out for opened rolls. Microcenter will often take returns of open rolls.
