Hi pen turners
I am trying to print on foil for better looking graphics . I tried printing on foul like paper but won't stick on the tube . Is there a foil type that is thin and. Can stick on tubes easily and look good . Do you need a foil printer to do this as I only have inkjet .

Thank you
Bernie

You can print on regular paper,, then apply foil to the paper. You will need some foil equipment.

Did the printed result on the foil-like paper look good to you? If so, it's probably worth trying a few different adhesives until you find one that works.

What adhesive did you try? Maybe something like this would do it:

Thank you for your reply. The graphics look good but when I try to put on the tube it just peels off. Maybe it's too thick . I need a foil that is thin and can go around the tube easily and will stick.

I use a foil transfer tool on my cricut. I also have a heat wand type foil thing from before my cricut that works too. I'll see if i can find it. It uses heat foils and you just plug it in, let it get hot, and trace your design with the tip. Easy peezy.
