Using a Laser printer to add foil highlights to is probably the technique that you are looking for available from:
A friend of mine uses http://www.paperdirect.com/PaperDirect_PF401/productDetail.asp?superprodid=2687
While he does most of his work on paper he has used the foil on T shirts as well. I have also gold foiled on thin leather run through my old Laserjet IIP
