I bought a Amazon laminator & it is a big piece of junk, it doesn't work, I watched Gina K videos & I still can't figure it out, so I guess I'm gonna buy the Royal Sovener laminator

Joyce.  The best way to learn is to watch You Tube videos.  Gina also shows how in some of her videos.  Not sure what you mean with “pouches”?  Are you laminating or foiling?  Hugs!

Thank you Diana.  I hadn't thought of the kit boxes, what a perfect solution.

I have mine in GK kit boxes. The rolls fit perfect. The sheets I have in a kit box also. I don't keep the kits together but put paper with what I have, stamps go into my inventory, etc. so I have a lot of the boxes. You can also buy these in the store but any boxes would work. I have just added a label to the front with the colors in each box and as I use the foil I mark how much is left so I know when to reorder. Can't tell how much is in the tube by just looking! Hope this helps.

Hello to fellow foiling fans.  I am new to foiling and have managed to gather a good size amount of foils along with the related tools.  My question for you seasoned foil experts is how to you store you foils?

You can also take to Office Supply store and have them copy on heavy card stock on a laser printer. I got a cheap one at Walmart.

you can't foil with ink jet...has to to laser cause it's the toner that the foil melts into as I understand it.  I hope to eventually get one, but so far haven't been that lucky.  LOL

Is a laser printer necessary?  I have a HP Envy, it is ink jet but prints beautifully.
