Todd Slater Strange Attraction Foil Prints Release

Todd Slater is dropping a couple of prints on Thursday that are just incredible. Strange Attraction will come in blue and copper colorways.

Studio on Fire handled the unique printing duties on these prints. It basically works like this. Foil stamping is somewhat similar to letterpress and engraving, in that the color is applied to paper with pressure. Once the design is finalized, copper plates are created in the appropriate shape for each individual color foil to be applied for a particular design. The dies are heated and then stamped with enough pressure to seal a thin layer of foil to the paper, and each color is applied individually through multiple runs of the press to create the final design.

The prints are 18″ x 24″ heated foil pressed each one has a signed and numbered edition of 200 in 2 different color ways

These go up Thursday, May 26 between 3pm-5pm Central Time. Visit
