IN THIS TUTORIAL I'M GOING TO SHOW YOU HOW TO APPLY FOIL TO YOUR TSHIRTS
NOW IM USING AN ANAJET SPRINT, IF YOUR USING THE ANAJET 125 ITS THE SAME PROCEDURE.
STEP 1: Image Prep
Now before we start printing we need to get our graphic ready for print, Very simple. Now if your going to use gold foil like I am you must turn your image some sort of yellow first, (foil works better when using same color in your graphic, gold/yellow foil=yellow/gold graphics)
. Depending on the shade of yellow I use It will have a different effect, (ex: bright yellow will give you the brightest yellow foil, while a yellow/orange color will give you a bronze Foil)
STEP 2: General Settings
Below I have attached a screen shot of my settings, For my white underbase I used a Medium 1
(not much white needed! This is great in ink cost!)
Now for my color settings I'm using a Heavy 4 vivid
Now we need a heavy 4 because we need the ink to be nice and wet so when we apply the foil it sticks right on there.
So now that we have all of our setting dialed in, we just need to set up our shirt and print.
So now that we have our shirt printing we need to take it over to the heat press. You want to do this quickly because you want the ink to still be wet when you apply the foil. Place the foil Shinny side up! Like in the image below.
Now place your press sheet right over the foil.
and press your shirt.
Heat press Settings
Were going to use our standard dark shirt settings. 330 degrees for 90 seconds.
STEP 4: FINISHING TOUCHES
So now that our shirt has been pressed were going to let it cool down for about a minute. I usually set it aside and keep my production going.
Slowly peel of the foil, make sure you pull from one direction (top to bottom or left to right etc.)
