What Makes Webster's Pages So Different?
Being a crafter is all about creating your own distinctive look. Itï¿½s easy to come up with your own unique designs with Webster's Pages Dufex process... cards, gifts, and a whole range of projects that are completely different from anything youï¿½ve seen before. Dufex can help you create this distinctive look because it is different!
This isnï¿½t foil blocking and it isnï¿½t holographics... this is Dufex and thereï¿½s nothing else like it! To bring you these brilliant craft products, a combination of a very unusual printing process and the skills of a team of specialist engravers are used.
The result is a light catching, reflective faceted surface that can make a design really come to life.
How Does It Work?
Hand engraved designs or patterns are embossed on to foil sheets to create the distinctive Dufex quality of depth and movement through the diffraction of light on the image surface.
To create the picture prints and stickers, images are first printed on to the metallic foil using transparent inks, which allow the reflective quality of the foil to be retained.
Specialist engravers are then able to pick out the details of each image by hand to bring it to life on the finished print!
ADDING COLOR: While these papers are stunning in their natural silver or gold finish, you can add color by sponging, chalking, inking, or using soft point pens or markers. Hard pointed pens can damage (scratch) the engraved surface.
How To Care For Dufex
As youï¿½ll want to get the best from these skillfully engraved products here are some simple guidelines recommended for the care and use of Dufex.
ï¿½ Adhesive--For Dufex products other than those, which are self adhesive, we suggest using water based PVA adhesive. Double sided tape and adhesive pads can also be used. Hot or solvent based adhesives should not be used with Dufex.
ï¿½ Storage--Dufex products should be stored in a cool dry place and kept away from hot surfaces and direct sunlight.
ï¿½ Handling--Take care when working with Dufex products to avoid marking the finely engraved surface, as with many craft materials it can be accidentally torn or scraped.
