How does the metallic transfer foil work ?
The metal transfer foil is used to add Metallic Finish (or metallic "color") onto text or line artwork that has been printed first with black and white laser printer.
The metallic transfer foil can be used with Domestic Iron if you don't have access to a Laminator (hot roller laminator). This metallic transfer foil can also be used with t-shirt press. Using t-shirt press requires 3-4 applications and gives interesting hammer gold effect.
Print your design using black laser toner onto plain copy paper. Cut off a section of the metallic transfer foil from the roll, and tape it to the area you would like to decorate with a metallic accent. After passing the sheet through a hot laminator, or applying heat with a domestic iron peel the foil off of the sheet. This leaves only those areas that contained laser toner decorated in a brilliant metallic color.
