The most crucial thing you must be aware of, at least from the perspective of designating foils, is the release. So that you are able to understand what this actually is, we have to look into the ways in which foils are manufactured. To begin with, foil comes with a series of thin layers. One of these is the release layer. It acts as the glue that holds the foil onto the substratum.

Anyone who has done art in school however knows that not every type of glue is equal. Certain ones stick to almost anything after they’re half-dry, but others require that you keep the two objects together before the glue becomes effective. Foil tends to find itself in similar states. Some merely require the die to touch them, whereas other variations must be pressed for a set period.

The issue with strong glue is that your foil may end up in the wrong place. Alternatively, your chosen glue might pull off more material than it’s meant to, thereby ruining everything. Because of this, there are distinct foil releases, ones that are broken down into three categories; easy, medium, and tight. The first is excellent for situations where the substrate isn’t entirely flat, the second works wonders in bigger areas, and the final one is used whenever the foiling must be completed rapidly.

At Foiling Services, we foil products in ways that really make them stand out from the rest. Whether your sheet materials are wooden, metal, or plastic based doesn’t matter; we are experienced in adding foils all three.
