Portrait 4: New Tools & Consumables

Heat Pens

The Heat Pen applies foil transfer material permanently onto select project surfaces. This can include surfaces such as faux leather or cardstock. As opposed to pressure-based foil that is pressed onto the material surface, the Heat Pen will transfer foil material via heat, thus providing a cleaner, brighter, more durable finish.
