Alignment

Recommended Posts

I work at a small print shop and we're looking into foil printing with metallic foils. We print out a CMYK image, we then seal the layer off with a soft-touch laminate. We overprint in black the parts of our design that we want to be finished with foil. Finally, we laminate it with metallic foil, it only sticks to the toner.

The issue we're facing is getting the second layer (black overprint for foil) to align with the first layer. When we print on laminated stock, the image just moves all across the sheet randomly (1-3mm in different directions, skewed).
Also, when we print on laminated stock, it comes out full of static.
Any tips?
