    Top Safety Tips for your Gemini FOILPRESS Machine

    No one wants burnt fingers or surfaces so be sure to read through the safety tips!

    • The most important factor is the temperature setting and luckily you are provided with a useful guide to work within your instruction manual.
      Keep an eye for the heating plate becoming too hit, the machine will flash the word COOL which means you need to remove the plate and place it on the silicone cooling mat until the timer shows 00.00, showing it's the right temperature. This usually occurs if you are going from high to low-temperature settings.
    • Allow dies to cool down on the Silicone Cooling Mat before each use.
    • When removing your FoilPress Foiling Platform ensure it is placed on the Silicone Cooling Mat to avoid damage!
    • Remember dies will be HOT so always use the tweezers provided to pick them up.
    • Do not directly touch the purple non-slip surface of the Foiling Platform during the heating process or whenever heated.
    • When cleaning your FOILPRESS use a wipe and never submerge any part of the FoilPress™ Machine in water or liquid.
