Heat Transfer Metallic Foil and Compatible Transfer Papers

Heat transfer metallic foils are a simple and awesome way to add an extra bling effect to laser transfer t-shirts that can only be replicated with metallic vinyl – but not with the ease or fine detail possible with heat transfer foils!

Our foil effect finishing sheets are available in a wide range of pearlescent, shimmery, and foil effect colors and are held on a thin clear liner for simple handling and pressing. The foil layer adheres to the raised toner transfer and does not require cutting or weeding for a contoured, detailed design!

Digi-Trans No Weed Laser Transfer Paper

(for light fabrics only)

digitrans

Instructions for foiling:

Print image mirrored horizontally in all black or solid dark color.

Follow normal pressing instructions to transfer to fabric but decrease pressure to a medium (3-5 bar) to avoid transferring excess glue from the sheet.

Once image is transferred, place foil on top of design with the foil color face up and press for 35-45 seconds at 330F with heavy pressure (6-8 bar). Peel cold.

Note: Using Digi Trans with the foiling sheets may result in uneven transfer, irregular foiled edges, excess glue that picks up foil in undesired areas and is overall more difficult to work with.
