Thermal foil smearing in printer

lyrajadedlyrajaded Member Posts: 1
Hallo hallo! I’ve been trying to make some multi colour prints with foils, however, the white foil keeps smearing badly when I run it through the printer for the black layer and I’m not sure how to deal with it. The gold layer stays just fine on second/third printing. I tried spraying the layer with acrylic setting spray, but it still smears. Does anyone know if there is a better white or some other way I can keep my shapes clean?

    @lyrajaded - welcome to the Make The Cut! software support forum where we support users of the software Make The Cut! and its supported cutters. You're talking about a printer or printing issue, I think, and I really have no idea what your process is or what you are trying to achieve. To get a better result with your Google search, try including brand name of printer and brand name of foil you are using.  Good luck!!!
