FREQUENTLY ASKED FOIL QUESTIONS
How many washes and how should we wash the garments?
We recommend washing the garments with cold water and hanging to dry. For best results wash the garment inside out so the foils do not rub up against the machine walls or other rougher garments which can nick the foils off.
Do not iron or dry clean the foils as the heat will activate the adhesive.
How long will the shine and gloss of the foils last for?
A 15-20% loss of gloss or color brilliance is typical even after the first wash how ever foils should remain intact if washed properly.
What is the largest print area for foils?
We have the machinery to print entire garments. Standard foil area is 15×18″ however feel free to get creative, we can go up to 33×43″.
Please note that the cost does significantly increase over 15×18″.
