Step 1: Make Some Tags
How to do it
- Create your pictures with your favourite drawing software
- Print them on adhesive transparent foil.
- Stick the printout on the shiny side of the tin foil you've selected
- Put the same into a laminator bag and laminate it
- Cut out the shape of your tag
- Maybe you want to punch a little hole to fix the tag
Ideas for tags
- Gift tags
- Doorbell nameplates (laminated tags are weatherproof)
- Front panels for electronic gadgets
- Reusable labels for jam jars (remove before dishwashing and stick on later again)
- 因为我们想层压板标签s, it's neccessary that your printout sticks on the tin foil. Otherwise the tag will fall apart.
- Cutting out your tags and stick them separately on the tin foil helps to avoid air bubbles between the foils
- Structured tin foil or smooth tin foil are depending on your application
- Design your images with color gradient - this look cool
- Experiment with more or less transparency to get more or less metallic look
- Print as much tags as possible at once since the transparent foil is expensive
Try it out, they are looking like metal plates. A yellow background with black text looks like a brass label. Transparent red or pink background looks like red gold / rose gold
