Thermoweb Foil Deco 6-inch x 12-inch, Gold
About this deal
My Laser Printer - this has sadly been discontinued as I have an OKI C301dn :( I do need a new printer though as I think mine is coming to the end of it's life now. I think I may go for a brother mono laser printer next and I'm going to choose between these 3 : Deco foil has a few different types of adhesives to add foil to various materials. I have yet to try them but I’m excited to see what they can do!

Use good quality foil – I have tried a lower quality foil but I have found it to give poor results. I now use deco foil (see bottom of the blog for link)Brother 1212, Brother 2350, Brother 2370 when I've chosen I will update this blog post to let you know what I went for and how it is :) Your foil transfer sheet should entirely cover your image. You can only do this once (believe me I’ve tried!!!) so make sure your foil covers your whole image – there is nothing worse than getting a perfect print with a tiny edge missing..

Place your image and foil in the transfer folder (or if using a laminator then use a same sized piece of grease proof paper) Don’t be tempted to put your print through the laminator again – it will in all likelihood destroy the foiling on the other parts of the print (it takes off that lovely shine and leaves the foiled areas with a duller look). I have even tried to use my minc on a setting of 3 first time and then put the print through on a setting of 1 but this is what happens (notice the marks on the tops of the mane) Deco foil is a brand of foil transfer sheets from Therm O Web. They are meant to add a colorful pop of metallic or satin finish to a bunch of different types of craft projects. The thirty-one different colors can be added to porous surfaces like paper, wood, and fabric.Try and print at a higher DPI than you need or print the image from a larger image i.e. if you are printing an 8x10” printout then create your image as a 16x20” and print it at an 8x10” size. I have found that this reduces the amount of flaws in the print. Ensure your foil piece is nice and smooth and undamaged – if you use scratched dirty foil then the result will be a patchy image. The foil at the top is creased and damage so will not produce a good print. The one in the bottom is smooth and clean.

Use good quality smooth paper suitable for a laser printer. The paper I use is in the tools section below. I have tried to use quality smooth archival matt paper but results are not consistent and I do find I get better results with the laser printer paper. See links below for the paper I use. When using helium, inflate the Deco Bubble as well as ALL balloons inside the Deco Bubble with helium. When using air, inflate ALL balloons with air.Once it has come out the other side wait a minute for it to cool down and then gently peel off the foil. For this project, I used machines I have around the house so no cutting machine is needed! I also have three different free printable thank you cards for you to make your own.
