Heat Transfer Foils

As the name suggests, the application of this foil requires a high temperature. The material is also referred to as hot stamp foil. It is transferrable so that it leaves your chosen item with an amazing and luxury metallic finish.

One thing to keep in mind though is that you should not cut the foils in a vinyl cutter or potter, or weed it. This can ruin them.

This material tends to come in rolls of long lengths and you can cut it to size with scissors. You should ensure that you lay it colour side up. In addition, remember that it does not include an adhesive.
