    Heidi Minc Hot Foiler - Anyone Got One

    Hi

    Has anyone got a Heidi Minc Hot Foiler?

    Can you tell me if you can take a die cut from a regular die cutting machine and hot foil it using this machine?

    Any other advice would be great

    Cheers
    Nic

    Hi - unless the die cut was covered in ink toner first - it will not work. The foil sticks to the toner on paper - If you have a laser printer you can print your own text and then foil it or a photo copy of the image / text you want to foil.

    If you had a laser printer you could print out a black toner covered page and die cut that paper/card and then foil it.

    Hope that helps,
    Fae x

    Hi Fae
    Thanks for the reply, that was how I thought it worked but wanted to double check. Bit defeats the purpose I think as you have to print out the page then foil then you have to cut it out somehow. Just a bit long winded for me shame as I like the idea and had some plans for the foiler. I would have to work out if you could do a design in Silhouette print it out black then using the registration marks cut it out.

    I will keep thinking lol

    Cheers

    LOL - I was trying to work out the same thing. Design image print and use the registration marks on my portrait. I just bought a minc off ebay on Friday - really good deal the lady was selling the machine and all the colours of foil (12") as well as 2 carrier sheets and a bucket load of the designs. So really got a bargain - but want to design my own stuff. I guess I will have to start playing around.
    I've seen something on youtube that helped me make the purchase - if you stamp or write with embossing ink - then cover that with toner powder, shake off the excess and put it through the minc, it will foil as well. The more people play with it - the more possibilities seem to open up. Keep an eye on youtube - lots of creative people out there.

    Hi
    Once you have had time to have a good play around with it, let me know how you get on. I would be interested to know if it can be done and how?

    Cheers

    Hi Fae

    Another way of getting the Silhouette to cut it out is after you print it out in black use the Pixscan mat for the Silhouette, my daughter thinks that may work.

    Anyway just another thought
