Foils are available in 8” and 12” wide rolls by 100’ and “Craft Packs” are 4.75” x 5’. 
Stampee foils can be fused to toner image areas on paper, bonded with adhesive pens or two-sided adhesives,
or applied to rubber-stamped images using “Stuck on You” bonding powder.

Crafting Foils Q&A

Foil fusing is a process where foil is bonded to a toner image area that was printed using a laser printer or a copy machine. 

Bright and matte gold and silver, bright metallic and pigment colors, and special application foils like glitters and holographic patterns. 

No. Foil fusing does not require any type of die. A laser printer and/or copy machine toner is used to bond the foil to the paper. 

Foil fusing will work with most toner based printers and copy machines but results can vary.

No. Foil will fuse to all toner image areas regardless of color. 

No. Foil will fuse to all toner image areas regardless of color. 

No. There are no special skills required but there is always a learning curve involved. When using compatible papers, printers/toners and foils, customers are only required to set the appropriate speed and temperature for the type of foil and paper being run.

Some lightly textured papers can be foil fused. Foil fusing results on even lightly textured stocks can be unpredictable.

Yes. Compatible smooth or coated stocks will provide more of a mirror finish when fusing bright finish gold, silver and metallic crafting foils. Compatible uncoated stocks will foil fuse well but with less of a mirror finish.

Foil fusing is a heat process. As a result, thicker papers will require a higher fusing temperature and/or more dwell (slower throughput speed) than thinner papers.

Most customers try to limit paper thickness to 18 pt. or less when foil fusing.

The foil will only adhere to the toner image area and will not transfer to the inkjet or rubber stamp ink.

Yes, as long as the foils do not overlap. Imprint toner and foil fuse the first color, then apply the second toner image area and foil fuse the second color. Please ensure your laser printer/copy machine is suitable for running sheets that have been foil fused.

Probably not. Most laser printers and copy machines cannot accurately register images imprinted in multiple passes?

6 pt. type is about the minimum size that can be foil fused without letters plugging. Results may vary depending on the type of printer/toner, foil and paper used, and the fusing speed and temperature. 

Yes. One of the interesting characteristics of foil fusing is that you can fuse large solids at the same time you are fusing smaller text and graphics.

Many pressure sensitive papers are suitable for foil fusing. Plastic and synthetic pressure sensitive materials may not be suitable. 

Yes. White pigment foil can be fused on dark stocks, including black. White is a very popular fusing foil color.

Yes. Clear acetate can be run through many laser printers and then foil fused. Please check to ensure your laser printer is suitable before running clear acetate.

Yes and no. When using “lick and stick” adhesive envelopes, if the flap is closed, while running through a pouch laminator, moisture in the envelope, reacting to the heat of the laminator, may seal the envelope. This isn’t an issue when running “peel and stick” style envelopes. Another potential issue, when running envelopes, is the variation in thickness over the surface of the envelope due to their die cut/folded/overlapped glued design. Customers who wish to foil fuse envelopes will need to experiment to get the best results.
