Product Specific Questions
What is the difference between transfer sheet booklets and Loose leaf booklets ?
Transfer sheet booklets are used to transfer 24 karat edible gold leaf directly onto the surface of a
ready to eat product. As long as there is some adhesion to the food product such as moisture, stickiness,
or adequate static electricity, the gold leaf will displace from the parchment paper in the booklet and
attach to the food product with ease. This may require some practice and trial and error to perfect the
Loose leaf booklets offer the freedom to simply take and apply 24 karat edible gold leaf onto any
surface without prior physical contact. We recommend using the anti-static tweezers. Different shapes
and sizes are also possible to create using careful handling. Our products are used in fast paced high traffic restaurants of all kind and fast food establishments with no issues.
