Whether you want to add foil to your current heat printing services or take it to the next level and expand into multicolor or mixed-media applications, this video from STAHLS’ TV has the info you need to succeed. This archived recording of a recent live class explores a range of basic to advanced applications.
Step-by-step demonstrations include one-color foil printing; applying a left-chest foil print to a tri-blend; creating multicolor foil finishes, including distressed and predictable patterns; using a nonstick cover sheet as a block out to produce a pattern; foiling oversize garments; and more.
Video talking points include:
- Multicolor foil printing for discrete graphic elements
- Multicolor foil printing for artwork where the foil is integrated into the design
- The ins and outs of mixing various types of transfer media, such as flock
- Design placement
- Material print order
