There are a number of different metallic finishes that you can achieve with a heat press. One such look, and the one that is the most sought after right now, is the foil finish. This finish can be achieved by heat printing a base layer of ink via screen-printed transfer or adhesive via vinyl-cut transfer. Then place the foil over the areas you would like to finish with a metallic look and apply it at the same heat as the base layer application.
Once the garment has cooled down, peel away the foil, and you’ll be left with a shiny, metallic finish.
