DIY Toner Reactive Gold Foil Print

With a laser printer and Toner Reactive Gold Foil you can easily make your own foiled prints. This project will only work with a laser printer (like this one) because the way laser printers work. Laser printers change the electrical charge of the paper and then the toner is electrostatically adhered to the charged areas of the paper. The heat of the printer fuses the toner to the paper. This electrical charge in the paper allows the gold foil to transfer onto the paper. An injket printer simply deposits ink onto the paper and doesn’t have this electrical charge.

I ordered the “Foil Sampler Pack” from PulsarPro FX and I like that it has all sorts of metallic colors. This product is TRF or Toner Reactive Foil meaning that it reacts to the toner on the paper.

DIY Gold Foil Tutorial

First, print off the design. I haven’t been daring yet in trying multiple colors of foil. I try to print in a color similar to the foil color that I’m going to use because there can be imperfections and this can help hide them.

Take a piece of TRF and cut it to slightly larger than your design. Tape the edges – just enough to hold it in place and keep it tight.

Put the page back through the printer, but this time simply print a blank page.

Remove the extra gold foil and enjoy your fun new design!

For this printable, I used this clipart Easter Egg and the font is 2Peas Mr Giggles. I colored it in a bunch a different combinations to match different decor.
