If the solvents wont take it off, Check for other brands

Our foil tape (Colorado / Home Depot) has two identical rows of printing in 1/2" high letters

UL NASHUA etc....numbers....blah blah...

Makes a rather odd looking lure!

I found a roll of tape at work that had the red printing on it today.

Lacquer thinner made short work of it.

Acetone & lighter fluid would probably work also.

There ya go YS, your all set, now, get ta foiling some baits!

enjoy

Okey-Dokey! (but that lure I made a few days ago....I'm leaving the red writing on, because when those Pike see the Underwriter's Laboratory logo, they're gonna respect it!)

Acetone & Denatured Alcohol both worked, so I guess I needn't even bother with anything else.

Anyway, I've enjoyed working with some of this foil. My first efforts are crude, but very satisfying.
