Before you get started with foiling, there are a few general tips that you should make yourself aware off. By following this advice, you’ll have a much easier time once you begin your operations.

If the foil must register to artwork on one of your printed sheets, you have to include a registration imprint in your artwork. This is duplicated on your sheet too. It has to reside outward on your art’s final cut/crop line. About two or three + impressions on the art shall suffice.

Make sure that your lines aren’t any thinner than 1pt. This is particularly vital if your plan is to utilise magnesium dies. A raised but thin section has a decent chance of disappearing once you have gotten through a few hundred impressions.

Should it prove doable, break up parts of your foil. Enormous foiling quarters, like a path of 2×3 for example, are especially tricky to deal with. Anyone who has ever attempted to place a screen cover on their phone will know just how annoyingly difficult it is to get something cleanly onto such a space without producing air bubbles. Add in the fact that foil demands a fair amount of pressure and you need to be very precise.
