Description

What is foiling?

Foiling is the process of adding a foil to paper to create a bright and vibrant finished piece. These reactive foil rolls feature a toner adhesive on the back that will stick to the dry toners used in most copiers and some laser printers*. These foil fusing rolls are 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. They are priced affordably compared to other brands, making them the premier choice for print production facilities and re-sellers --such as print and copy shops-- as well. But this affordability isn't just for businesses; many of our foiling customers are individuals who like to craft, as well as small business owners who sell prints on Etsy and other maker websites.

What machines can I use to foil?

Foiling is accomplished by using one of several methods. There are machines specifically designed for heat foiling in the professional market, as well as smaller work-around machines that can accomplish the job for individuals and smaller businesses who may not have the volume required to invest in a professional foil printmaking system. Just know that, when not using machinery designed for this process, there may be some fiddling with settings and additional testing required to achieve a solid print. You can review some of the types of machines that will foil below, as well as some of the features required of a compatible foil roll. Because foils come in specific sizes, and with specific core diameters, and in different compositions for different patterns, some machines may only be compatible with select foils.

Note: If you already have a laminator or other system and you want to test some foil before you buy a full roll, you can call us at (866)537-2244 to request a sample piece.

How do I use toner foil?

The method of foiling is going to depend entirely on the specific equipment you are using. Whether you are using an industrial foil fusing machine, a small office pouch laminator, or anything in between; the instructions for foiling will be completely reliant upon that.

You can apply foil using a pouch laminator by cutting a piece of the foil off of the roll, placing the foil over the desired location, inserting the paper and foil into a pouch carrier with scratch paper, and then running it through the pouch laminator. Applying foil in this manner applies brilliant color foil to black and white toner copied or printed documents.

Binding101.com offers a variety of pouch laminators ranging from 4" up to 13" wide. For foiling at home or in the office, use the instructions below to help you get started. But remember; specific instructions will vary depending on your individual machine, the kind of foil you are using, etc., so you may need to make adjustments, perform tests, etc. And note that not all pouch laminators can foil, so you will want to ensure compatibility before you invest in a machine.

You Will Need: 

  • Pouch laminator

    • Minimum 300° heat required (higher is recommended)

    • Recommended adjustable heat and speed settings (or at least one of these)

    • Must be able to handle 10 Mil Pouches

  • Laser printer or photocopier

    • Must use dry toner, and not wax-based inks (the foil will not adhere to waxed based inks)

  • Roll of toner reactive foil

  • Scissors

  • Pouch carrier

How to Foil: 

  1. Warm-up your laminator. The temperature for foil fusing will need to be quite high (usually a minimum of 300° F, depending on the foil and your paper stock). It is a good idea to have enough material to do test runs and adjust the settings until you get the perfect foil since it can vary a bit depending on the kind of paper you use, the laminator itself, and the foil type.
  2. Print your document for foiling.
  3. Cut a piece of foil off the roll in the appropriate length and width for the portion of your design you want to be foiled.
  4. Place the piece of foil over the printed area and carefully put the item into a laminating pouch carrier. If the foil moves at this point the foiling process will not be successful so you will need to be careful. Place a piece of thin scratch paper on top of the foil. If foil goes over the paper, then you should also place a piece of scratch paper below your document.
  5. Now that your laminator is warmed up, feed the carrier through the laminator.
  6. Once the document comes out of the other side of your laminator, place it flat on a table. Resist the urge to immediately lift the carrier. Allow a moment for the pages to cool first, and then open the carrier, remove your scratch paper, and peel-up the foil sheet to reveal your beautifully foiled document.

All roll laminating machines will have the basic components required for a clean foil (including a minimum heat of 300° Fahrenheit, adjustable speed, and adjustable heat settings), so the compatibility really depends on one simple component of the machine: does it have a liner take-up? This is a requirement as the foil roll waste will need to be wound-up as it is running.

You Will Need: 

  • Roll Laminator

    • Must have a liner take-up component

  • Laser printer or photocopier

    • Must use dry toner, and not wax-based inks (the foil will not adhere to waxed based inks)

  • Roll of toner reactive foil

  • Roll Cutter

How to Foil:

  1. Cut your roll with the foil roll cutter, if needed.
  2. Install the roll onto a compatible roll laminator & turn it on.
  3. Run your printed sheet through the machine.
  4. Peel off the foil to reveal your foiled design.

A foil fuser applies toner foil with a heated roller that is similar to the way a roll laminator applies laminating film. However, the foil only sticks to where there is dry toner. Using a Foil Fuser Machine to transfer metallic foil to documents makes the process more automated. Foil Fusers allow the user to use full rolls of foil instead of feeding individual cut sheets. If large jobs are in the schedule, Foil Fusers will greatly reduce the cost of foil and labor. They are easy to use & require no special training. They allow inexperienced operators to produce expert-looking projects in just minutes.

You Will Need: 

  • Foil fusing machine

    • Ensure the width will allow for the width of foil you use

  • Laser printer or photocopier

    • Must use dry toner, and not wax-based inks (the foil will not adhere to waxed based inks)

  • Roll of toner reactive foil

  • Foil roll cutter (only needed if you need to cut the roll width down to fit your machine)

How to Foil: 

  1. Warm-up your laminator. The temperature for foil fusing will need to be quite high (usually a minimum of 300° F, depending on the foil and your paper stock). It is a good idea to have enough material to do test runs and adjust the settings until you get the perfect foil since it can vary a bit depending on the kind of paper you use, the laminator itself, and the foil type.
  2. Print your document for foiling.
  3. Cut a piece of foil off the roll in the appropriate length and width for the portion of your design you want to be foiled.
  4. Place the piece of foil over the printed area and carefully put the item into a laminating pouch carrier. If the foil moves at this point the foiling process will not be successful so you will need to be careful. Place a piece of thin scratch paper on top of the foil. If foil goes over the paper, then you should also place a piece of scratch paper below your document.
  5. Now that your laminator is warmed up, feed the carrier through the laminator.
  6. Once the document comes out of the other side of your laminator, place it flat on a table. Resist the urge to immediately lift the carrier. Allow a moment for the pages to cool first, and then open the carrier, remove your scratch paper, and peel-up the foil sheet to reveal your beautifully foiled document.

How much does it cost to foil?

The exact price to foil is going to vary depending on several factors, including the printer and toner you use, the laminator or foil fuser, the style of foil, the method (laminator or fusing), the paper stock, etc. But in general, users can expect to pay only about $0.04-$0.08 per 8.5" x 11" letter size page.

Can I use more than 1 color on a page?

Yes! If using the pouch laminator method, you have total control over where the foil lies on your sheet, so you can use as many or as few colors as you would like by just cutting the pieces and placing them on the toner. If using a foil fuser, you would want to print your first toner, run it with color number 1, then add your second toner and run it with foil number 2.

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, and 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.

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.

Frequent Asked Questions

Q
Tips for storing the foils?
Asked by Jessica
A
We keep our foil in a cool dark room. The foil room only has 1 light on and that is over the work surface. We keep the temperature between 67 and 73 degrees with low humidity all year long. The darkroom helps keep the foil from fading.
