Final Tips

Foil-Mates are very easy to use. They are black toner ink prints that come ready to use in a pack. One Foil-Mates sheet will give you two A2 card panels and to foil them all you need to do is place a piece of Deco Foil transfer sheet and run it through you laminator. It’s that easy. For better results, Therm O Web recommends adding a cardstock shim under your Foil-Mates sheet, to add more pressure and help the foil transfer evenly to your background. This tip works great for me so I thought I’d share it with you!

That’s all for today. Thanks so much for visiting. Before I go, here is another fun idea using Foil-Mates that I share recently:
