    If your foil continues to stain with heat, then the foil is only for gluing. I found that out after a lot of hassle 🙂
    A bit late perhaps, but still...

    Gr truus

    Hi Els, I have only just discovered Minc foil. Awesome. Only it is and remains spotty on me, not completely opaque. Could it be my laminator (an old animal)? Hopefully you have some tips.
    Thank you in advance. Greetings, Monique

    Hey! Nice article! I think you are right about Paper Poetry being very spotty? *crying cry* I thought it was just me? But it also appears outside the letters, so you can actually see the spot where the foil was completely placed! Too bad, 6 euros gone... but hey, a first for everything, now I at least know which foil I need for this! Big kiss

  5. Rowena says:

    Nice article!? I still have a few questions. Which laser printer do you use? Since not every laser printer can handle thicker paper. And is every laminating machine sufficient?

    • Els says:

      We have a very old printer, but I believe that manual feed printers can handle a bit more. Just ask before you buy one. I don't think laminator matters. I'll see how hot your device gets and don't start too hot. Good luck

    For people who don't have a laser printer. There are also toner pens for sale

    The birthday wish list includes: (money for)

    Really, Els, you should just start a webshop, I think this would go very well!

    Awesome. I hadn't even thought of these options myself.

  10. Myriam says:

    Thanks for the tip!

    I know transfer foil from calligraphy, where you get the same effect by writing on the foil. I really love the laminator tip! Never thought that it could be done in other ways than “writing”. I think I already know how I'm going to use it. 🙂

    Hey how nice!

  13. Yolanda says:

    What a nice technique! It's great that you made a video of it, because I've never heard of this before and this is a nice explanation. Awesome !

    How beautifully done and what nice techniques. I don't know this foil but I think it would be fun to get started with it. Thanks for your nice ideas! 🙂

  15. Heidi says:

    Turned out super beautiful…

  16. Linda says:

    Very nice…..also with your video. Will you also make a video on how to do that with your die? Greetings, Lin

    • Els says:

      No, I'm not making a video of that :-). You first put the double-sided adhesive sheet in the special cutting machine with cutting template. Then you remove the protective layer on one side. Stick that side onto your card. Then you remove the other protective layer. Then apply the foil. After pressing firmly, remove the sheet of foil. The foil then remains on the gripping part. Good luck :-).

  17. Cindy says:

    Know it from the nail world. Having the printer is nice, but I don't think many people have it at home.

  18. Luci Sanders says:

    I don't quite understand the last part, using those molds.

    How nice, I don't know that foil at all, the possibilities are endless 🙂 you have explained the different techniques well, thank you for that!

  20. Romy says:

    Wow, what a cool technique! It looks really nice and looks like you can go in so many directions with it 🙂

  21. I didn't know this at all, how nice!! You can really be very creative with this!

I would really appreciate a response to this article :)
