Foilcraft Jnr Pencil Printing Kit 2
Foilcraft Junior Pencil Printing Kit
Shipping & VAT added at checkout
Printing onto pencils represents a learning curve due to the fact that the letters are small (10pt), small print area on pencil, printing onto wood and aligining products correctly due to a small surface area.
Pencils can also vary in quality and you must allow a certain percent as rejects and they must be built into your costings.
Practice on cheap pencils first (available from pound shops) as each pencils gives you 12 attempts (6 on each end of pencil) Whilst pencils can be printed with the cheaper metal letters contained in the package, we would recomend upgrading to more sharper and durable brass letters, shown as options just below the contents of this kit.
To get a good quality print, you must apply consistent downward pressure. The machine height must be adjusted correctly so that your letters are making a perfect contact when being pressed into the pencil. PRACTICE - PRACTICE - PRACTICE!

Printing onto pencils is easy but it also depends on the quality of pencils and how smooth they are. Although you can print pencils with metal type, in the longer run, we would recommend using brass type for greater longevity and extra sharpness. Here is a video where we print on to pencils using metal type on the Foilcraft 4x3 (Similar on the Foilcraft Junior too) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8cKFcLT-zZI
