The January 2017 edition of Printwear magazine features “Fun with Foil,” an article on heat transfer foils by Stahls’ own Josh and Zach Ellsworth. The article covers the process of applying foil using heat press adhesive, and how this method can be preferable to applying foil to screen printed graphics, especially for small runs.
Heat press adhesive improves the process by allowing you to cut and weed any number of designs, even with fine details, without the mess of screen printing. Plus it creates a stronger bond with the foil, making these embellishments last longer than ever.
After covering the basics of heat transfer foil, along with a few tips and tricks, Josh and Zach move on to alternative applications, like multi-color foil application, mixed-media designs, and distressed foil.
