Default Metallic Foil printing on Kornit?

Has anyone done foil transfers on Kornit? I have looked far and wide, I even called Kornit and I can't find the answers. Because of the wet pretreat and ink, it's different than any other dtg printer b/c it doesn't use a heat press.

My question is - is it possible? Do you cure the ink and then heat press? Any feedback is much appreciated!

Sorry for my english
You can't only cure Ink with heat press why? because it's Wet on Wet... the ink will cure but your print will be deformed and some part of the print will be transfer on the Paper or heatpress plate. you can only try to put your finger on a Wet cornet print and you will see..
You need to evaporate the water on the pretreatment before...
I tried to heat press Kornit print but after the drying process on conveyor. it's was nice, the in feeling became soft like a sticker.

Hope it will help you

I tried this once before, and I had to do the foil first, then print the digital around it. It was a little difficult to line up, but once I was able to get the placement right, it went pretty well. The wet on wet printing did not seem to cause any adverse effects to the foil, so it was able to cure and the combination worked out.
