Re: gold embossing


You can get foils which you tape over your laser printed copy and then run
through again like a blank page to fuse the gold to the toner. Paper Direct
sells it. You can also get similar foils and a heated brayer to fuse them
to the toner in better graphic arts supply houses. I'm not sure of the
manufacturers. I believe Letraset is one of them.


They all work best with smoother papers, anything that toner bonds to well.
