To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The only foil I will use for my business. Not only is it a good price for the amount you get, but the quality is unbeatable. Other foil like mink scratches soooo easily, and almost always comes crinkled and bent. This foil is pretty durable, and can run the excess strips of old project foil back through a machine (just make sure you cut the parts out that are clear from the previous transfer other wise you will get foil lines).
I thought I would write a review because I saw a lot of negative ones about the foil. Its not the foil, its user error :) it is a LEARNING process! It took me a full day of testing with different paper types, settings, different machines, and printing settings. You are going to need to do the same, because your printer is different from mine. But when you print, you must have different settings for the paper you are using and printed quality. If your print quality is sh*t you can't expect the foil to look better - remember the foil adheres to the toner (100% black, not grey). Paper is important so pay attention to that! Research Research Research.
The laminator you buy is also important. The best transfer is with a laminator that has 4 rollers not 2, its not enough heat to transfer, otherwise you get blotchy images.
Lastly! The silver part goes down.... not the coloured foil.... you want the colour on top as thats what pulls through, not like gold leafing etc.
Passed through SCOTCH Thermal Laminator after printing design on Samsung ML-3015 mono laser printer. Nothing, nada, zero, absolutely nothing left on the card stock after 4 passes through the laminator. Everything works fine with WRMK foil sheets. I certainly wouldn’t buy again nor could I recommend for use with a laminator based on my personal experience.
I used the laminator method to transfer and it exceeded my expectations 10fold. It’s incredibly easy to use and trim to the size you need. It left a very mirror-like gold shine that I would be happy to put onto wedding invitations or thank you notes. You also get a lot, 25’ AND I grabbed this on sale so I am even more pleased with this purchase. I recommend this product and will be a repeat customer when needed!
I am not sure what the problem is but after laminating even a few times, adhesion coverage on the printed materials is uneven. I've used different kinds of papers and cardstock and some are better and some are worse. Sticker paper and copy paper was very uneven. Some words had no foil at all. Smooth cardstock was a lot better but adhesion was 90% at most. Maybe I'm doing something wrong but I don't know what else to do...
I was hesitant to purchase this since I’m so used to the Minc foil but I’m so glad I did! This actually foils way better than the Minc brand. I also like that it’s thicker and easier to handle. I’ll definitely purchase again!
