Has anyone tried foiling a halftone?
Good to know....I ran Ryonets foil adhesive through a 158 mesh with a 120 ppi index sep on it, gelled the adhesive, foiled it (325 for 10 secs) pressed it again after cold peeling and it was perfect. There was also some good sized type 150 point and thin lines for registration. Covered the big stuff well, picked up all the detail (this was on a black shirt). Then just for kicks ran it outside out with a couple of course towels in the agitation cycle for a couple hours (hot water). Seems to of held up perfectly.
We mix the concentrated plastisol toner to the foil adhesive if we are printing on a light colored shirt. Red toner for red foil, etc.I have found it works well to drop your heat press down against the shirt without fully engaging for a second or so to just heat jell adhesive before foiling. This has helped with pitting. Has anyone else used plastisol colors that match the foil color so when the foil washes and wears it does not look to bad?
