Personalised notepad using laser foil printing !
Hello Everyone !
I hope that your end of year season is going on well and merry .
This tutorial aims at showing you how to create
a unique personalised gift for your loved ones using laser foil printing
from my previous turorial (Easy laser foil printing) !
Peace, Love and Light,
Step 1: Using any editing software that allows working with layers (I am using Adobe Photoshop), create two layers, layer 1 containing 10x10cm images (as per your loved ones` preference) to be printed using an inkjet printer and layer 2 containing black borders (10.3 x 10.3 cm ) and the names of your loved ones to be printed using a laser printer as shown below .
Step 2: Set layer 2 visibility to false and print layer 1 using your inkjet printer then set layer 1 visibility to false and print layer 2 using your laser printer.
Note: Use the smoothest paper you can in 180g.
Step 3: Add foil (gold, silver etc... as per your preference) and place in your laminator machine (see tutorial on laser foil printing). Then cut accordingly (using a die cut machine or scissors) .
Step 4: Get your notepad for personalisation and remove the original cover . I purchased the one below at Intermart at Rs45 !
Step 5: Cut a piece of cardstock (preferably double sided - 240g) to fit exactly the three sides of your notepad as shown below.
Step 6: Place double sided tape on the back and 'up' sides (total 2 sides) of your notepad and stick accordingly !
Step 7: Still using double sided tape, stick your foiled image (obtained from step 3) on the cover of your notepad and voila !
Step 8: You may also add the name (foiled) again on the 'up' side for that cute effect as shown below ...
Step 9: Your personalised notepad is now ready !
