GO PRESS AND FOIL MACHINE EXPLAINED


All about the Go Press and Foil machine......

so last year, Couture Creations released a foiling machine that doesn't need toner and can work with your existing die cutting machine.  It has a heating platform that you layer your hot foil stamp or dies, your foil colour and your card stock in and simply let it heat up and then run it through your die cutting / embossing machine.  You can also letterpress and letterpress with ink and it also allows you to foil chipboard, die cuts, ribbon, organza bags, cello bags, felt, vinyl and practically anything you can get through your die cutting machine.  So many opportunities!



To see some videos of how it works, check out these links:

This year they have added a collection of cut, emboss and foil dies which foil and cut all at the same time.  These dies can also be used with your standard die cutting machine and will give a great embossed die cut so even if you don't have a Go Press and Foil machine, you  can still enjoy these dies.  All you need is a metal conversion plate which is about twice the thickness of a standard metal shim and will allow you to create perfectly foiled die cuts and negative effects as well as use your emboss folders through your foiling machine.







Check out the video below where they were released at Creativation in Phoenix earlier this year and  what you can do with the left over bits.

All these dies are now in stock at A Place to Create but stocks are strictly limited as Couture Creations may not rerun this collection.  Further collections from Couture Creations will include some Hot Foil Stamps and Cut and Emboss Foiling Dies so keep an eye out on new collections as they release also.

We will be popping more in house videos up as soon as Sharon has her voice back so stay tuned and make sure you like and follow A Place to Create on facebook to see them as soon as they are up.
