How to use Print/ Embossing Powders
Simple and easy to use, Print Powder will give your print a raised feel and enhance the design - Highly popular with wedding stationery and business cards.
Empty the Print Powder into a tray/ container [you can also sprinkle directly onto the print but this wastes more powder]
Produce a PRINT GOCCO print as normal and 'dip' the print into the container so as a small amount of powder is scooped onto the surface of the paper/card.
Move the paper/card so that the powder slides, covering the printed area.
Tilt the paper/card so excess powder returns to the container.
Flick the BACK of the paper/card to remove any excess powder
Heat the design to raise the powder and seal print.
A high temperature is required to melt the Print Powder - around 140 degrees. You can use . .
A Heat Gun/ Paint Stripper is the preferred method as the heat is high and raising is VERY quick - about 2 seconds
A conventional Oven @180 degrees approx. 2 mins - Time will vary upon print size.
On the back of an iron - no steam
IMPORTANT: No matter what method you use - take care not to brown paper through over raising/ excessive heat.
