How to foil your own wedding cards: Print with a laser printer using the highest resolution possible. Lay out the paper with the printed side facing up. Put the foil on top with the colour facing up, then place everything in the plastic sleeve that is included with the foiling machine. Turn on the foiling machine and press the gold button. Each press changes the heat setting. How warm the machine should be (usually steps 3 to 4) depends on the thickness of the paper. Make sure the materials are flat and inside of the plastic sleeve. Feed the plastic sleeve into the machine with the closed edge of the plastic sleeve first. Let the sleeve run through the machine completely before splitting up the materials. REMEMBER: The smoother the paper you use, the better the results will be. See the PDF below for patterns.
