So I finally got around to making this new screen printing video about metallic heat transfer foil. I meant to do this a long time ago but I didn’t have any jobs for it so I wasn’t willing to buy the products needed to do it just for a video. I ended up getting a free sample of some unknown brand of the foil adhesive and the foil itself. In the past I have used good products I think because I never had foil peel like this stuff did. It wasn’t clean and it had extra metal foil in places it shouldn’t have been. But after I brushed it off with my hand it seemed fine. It was rather strange and I can only attribute it to the quality of the foil I was using. It actually makes the video much more informative after all because this problem happens to many people as I understand.
This screen printing educational video is called, “How To Screen Print: Metallic Transfer Foil On Black T Shirts” and goes through a rundown on the printed adhesive and transfer foil effect. Here you will learn about the plastisol foil adhesive and how to screenprint it onto the shirt before applying the foil. The adhesive is printed directly onto the tee shirt and cured in this video. You’ll get to see the shirts go through the oven to cure the printed foil adhesive design and go to the heat press. At the heat press you’ll see the shirts get the metallic transfer foil pressed to the printed foil adhesive. Come along on this fantastic voyage as we learn that some transfer foils do not transfer as cleanly as others. At the end of the video you’ll get to see close up shots of the finished metallic foiled print and hear Jonathan’s thoughts on this particular transfer foil. Learn how to screen print for fun or for profit!
