With our clear iridescent foil fusing rolls you get a beautiful rainbow design that changes in the light. The underlay is an opaque base color that will not show the ink through. This means it will completely cover up your toner, so all you see is a beautiful iridescent rainbow foil on your printed design. You can choose from several different roll sizes and core sizes, and custom-cut widths are also available by special order.
Iridescent toner foil is perfect for adding a touch of class or uniqueness to business cards, letter hear, wedding invitations and so much more. These foil rolls are applied with the consistent heat and pressure that is offered by our foil fusing machines. It will stick to the dry toner¹ that is used in most standard copiers (and some laser printers). Reactive foils work well with smooth paper stocks³ of many kinds - all you have to do is print your design or text using a dry toner copier, then apply this foil to your page and run it through a foil fusing machine or pouch laminator². When the page comes out of the machine, just peel off the foil sheet and you will have a gorgeous foil pattern that has stuck to the toner only. These iridescent colors offer a shimmery, rainbow look that really stands out.
What Machines can Foil:
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. Here are some important considerations for various methods of foil fusing:
|Method/Machine||Pouch Laminator||Roll Laminator||Foil Fuser|

How to Foil
The method you use to foil will vary significantly based on the kind of machine you are using; a foil fuser, a roll laminator, or a pouch laminator. We have several blogs and resource posts about foil, including instructions for various methods. Click here and search the word "foil" to browse our foil blogs.
¹ 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.
² Compatible pouch laminators require certain features; they must be able to reach at least 300°F, have adjustable speed and temperature settings, be the proper width for your machine. If using a roll laminator, the machine must also have a film rewind feature and a matching core size. Other variables may factor into compatibility. Click here to see a list of laminators tested and approved for foiling. Note that transparent hologram foils may require more heat or more time under heat than other foils.
³ 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.
