If the solvents wont take it off, Check for other brands
All the rolls Ive seen down here have no printing on em.

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!

Try lighter fluid (zippo) ...don't know if it works, but takes off other stuff with ease.

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!

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.
