Print + Cut

Print our “cards” design onto 8.5″ x 11″ cardstock in your choice of color, ranging from light to dark, using a laser printer. The laser printer toner is what the foil sticks to! Cut down to 5 x 7.

Hole Punch

Round or cut the corners if you’d like and then hole punch where needed for the basket you’ll be hanging the sign on.

Foil

Cover the black printed design with toner reactive foil in your choice of color, here I’m using silver. Place inside of a carrier sheet and feed through your Minc Machine!

If you’ve never seen this technique before, you might want to visit this post of ours where we talk about it in detail.

Dark Paper Rejoice!

Many of you would like to use black or dark colored papers like this navy blue for your wedding, but are limited because printers don’t print “white” or any other color that would stand out. But adding foil is perfect! You don’t need to be able to see the toner, as long as it’s there the foil will stick!
