Foiling is the process of adding a metallic foil to paper* to create a bright and vibrant finished piece. This is perfect for DIY'ing your own wedding invitations, creating business cards that will really set you apart, making prints to frame and hang on the wall, and so much more. These foil rolls feature a toner adhesive on the back that will stick to the dry toners used in most copiers and some laser printers**. You can use a foil fusing machine to apply consistent heat (to activate the adhesive) and pressure (to ensure a clean and consistent application). Other heat machines, such as pouch laminators, may work as well, however, may require more heat testing and adjusting to get a perfect finished print. These metallic colors offer a solid and opaque foil that comes in a huge selection of colors, including multiple tones of the same color (for example, there are four different metallic gold foils available).
Foiling is a great way to create wedding invitations, award certificates, craft projects, business cards, letter head and anything else that could benefit from bright metallic color accents. Rolls can also be custom cut-down to size.
Note: If you are using one of our Foil Fusing Machines, please select the 24" x 500' roll size, as they feature the 1" core that is required for use with the machines.
* The adhesive applies well to smooth paper stocks of a variety of thicknesses. It does not, however, create a solid/consistent look on textured papers.
** The adhesive on the back of these foil rolls sticks to dry toner only; it will not work with wax based inks from laser printers.
