My sweet friend, Ally, recently shared with me that she was making DIY gold foil prints. I begged her to show me her technique as I am obsessed with anything gold lately.
– A laminator
– A laser printed design on card stock
Be sure to print your print using a laser printer (or make a copy in a copy machine using toner). This technique will not work by simply printing using an inkjet printer. Make sure your paper is free of dust and/or hair as it will cause a break in the foil.
Cut a piece of gold foil large enough to cover the text. Place over the text gold side up.
Lay a full-sized piece of paper over the Gold Foil and feed through the laminator. Do not use the clear sleeves that come with the laminator.
Then simply peel the foil away from the print…and voila a custom gold foil print!
