    Default Foil on Posters?

    I heard from my buddy that he has seen posters printed with a foil accent. Im wondering how that is done, has anyone ever done and what did you need to pull it off?
    Thanks.

    I'm guessing no.

    Some stencil for applying the glue, then apply the thin sheet of foil. Burnish. Remove foil.

    I don't know.

    maybe you'd want to try a specialty printer that can do foil stamping.
    they would treat it like an emboss. charge by square inches usually.

    or gorilla glue and belt sander. eye protection recommended.

    I was kind of guessing at a process that might work for yourself.
    Dusty's advice is the most realistic.
    Other than that, yes. Lots of jokesters.
