Foil is an exciting product that adheres to various types of fabrics. Foil transfers can be a valuable asset for any printer wanting to create an eye-catching graphic effect. It also makes an interesting alternative for applications that have reflective inks. Foil is a great way to accent any garment. It is simply done by heat transfer applying the foil onto screen printed designs with plastisol inks or screen printable adhesives.
Each Roll is 200' Long.
- Transfer adhesion. Will stick to regular plastisol inks if printed and cured properly. See transfer application instructions below.
- Heat transfer press. Any transfer press should work, see transfer instructions below.
Foil Application Instructions:
Foil is applied colored side up and aluminum looking (dull) side down. Rub foil with eraser immediately after application to help remove any wrinkles. Allow transfer to cool completely (20 to 30 seconds) after application before removal of foil sheet. Pull foil sheet off slowly. It can be helpful to use an ink tinted towards the colour of the foil. This process will help to keep small pinholes in the applied foil film from being noticeable.
300F to 325F (149C to 163C). Try lower temperature first for best results.
T-Shirts = Medium (40lbs.)
Sweatshirts = Medium to Heavy (40lbs. to 60lbs)
The brightest foil effect will result when the foil is first removed. To achieve a textured matte finish foil, re-seal the garment or hat in the transfer press for 3-4 seconds after the foil carrier film has been removed.
For best durability of the foil after it is applied, it is recommended that the garment be hand washed or machine washed (delicate cycle) inside out and line or air dried. Do not use bleach. Do not iron printed area.
