Let’s break it down for you…

Create these amazing results…

…by following these simple steps

Make sure the FoilPress is pre-heated and set the timer based on the selected material. Then place the Foil Stamp die facing upwards on the purple non-slip surface of the Foiling Platform and press START on the Base.

Trim foil to size needed to cover the Foil Stamp die and, when the indicator light has turned green and a beep has sounded, remove the Foiling Platform and place foil with COLOURED SIDE DOWN on top of the Foil Stamp die.

Place selected material face-down on top of the foil.

Then carefully place the Top Plate on top.

Using the Silicone Finger Grips, grasp by only the handle to carefully remove the Foiling Platform with Top Plate from the Base (being careful not to touch the underside of the Foiling Platform) and offer to the opening of the Gemini Junior machine.

The material is now foiled and debossed! Using the Silicone Finger Grips, remove the Top Plate and use the tweezers to carefully lift the material from the Foiling Platform.
