Product Description


"Hot Stamp Supplies for Us Little Guys"


Choose 9 Rolls from a list of 70+ Brilliant Foil Rolls for M-101 and AM-101 machines


A package of 9 custom-rolled 100 foot long rolls of premium all purpose shiny foil, on 5/8" cores, for Kingsleys M-101 and AM-101 machines. There is a default pre-selection, but you may substitute any colors you need from the 70+ colors, listed below. If you prefer a different assortment, or if you need the foil rolled on 1/2" or 1" cores, please indicate your preferences in the Note to Seller box (you may have to open it) at PayPal checkout. If you miss the box, just email me (dcks@sbcglobal.net), with your list of color preferences and  your order number). If we don't hear from you, we will ship a default selection of one roll each of shiny Gold (Y-106), shiny Silver (MG10), shiny Black (MG99), shiny red (MG45), shiny green (MG35) shiny Medium Blue (MG23), shiny dark blue (MG25), shiny violet (MG78) and shiny copper (MG65).  




• All foil has been re-rolled from large master rolls onto 5/8 inch cores (unless otherwise requested - see Ordering the Right Foil below) to work on Kingsley, Howard, Jason, KwikPrint and most any hot stamping machine.


• Foil on 1 inch core is generally designed for use on the M101 and the AM-101 machines. Foil on 1 inch core cannot be used in the foil feeders of most Kingsley M-50s, M-60s and M-75s. Also, 200' rolls of brilliant foil are too large for Kingsley's Foil Feeder.


This is a constantly revised list and I tweak it frequently, and better photography is being added gradually. 


All rolls are 4 inches wide and 100 feet long, more than twice as long as the old standard 40 foot long Kingsley foil rolls, but for about the same price.


The Infinity Foils numbering system is generally used to arrange by number and color, with supplemental colors from several other sources, including Crown Roll Leaf.


• Premium foils from still other suppliers will be substituted occasionally as long as the color matches.


• This list of foils is mostly considered "Brilliant," as opposed to "Pigment", which refers to solid colors that appear more like a painted surface, with gloss or flat finishes. I also offer pigment foils, which cost a little more, in other listings (see eBay item #s: 290574424624, 290838803088 & 290658346723).


• Brilliant foils can also have various finishes. I use the word "shiny" (I know, not too scientific) to refer to the most mirror-like, chrome-like finish. And I also use other terms to refer to several other finishes like "metallic," "satin," "dull," "warm," "bright," "light," "rich," "less yellow," etc. For more information, see "Important Little Tidbits about Foil" below.


• Special Foils for Napkins & Ribbon - because these materials (substrates) are light weight, most brilliant foil will "pick" them up when imprinted. Having to "knock the napkin off" the foil after each impression defeats the speed advantage of the foil feeder, so Kingsley produced a special quick release foil that will not adhere to the napkin or ribbon; thus the imprinting speed is not hindered. But since the "old" Kingsley foil is no longer produced (I still do collect some of it along), Crown Roll Leaf now produces a quick release foil in least 5 colors: gold, silver, copper, blue and black (these foil color numbers end with "K"). They are all matte finishes, and although I have heard rumors about quick release foil in brilliant colors, I still have not found any.

This foil will work on virtually any hot stamping machine at about 250°, but if you want to use it in a Kingsley auto feed foil system, you will need to do a little research concerning your M-101 setup and order the appropriate foil configuration. Here's the scoop:

1. If your Kingsley M-101, or AM-101, has the EZ FOIL ADAPTER, that uses the white "dog ears" (that's what Kingsley called them), this foil, on a 5/8" core, is produced for your system. You're in the right place to order. These rolls offer a 4 inch wide imprint. The Adapter also allows the use of 1" core foil; in this case ask for a switch to 1" core.

2. If your M-101 has the 1/2" thick rod with the spring loaded end cap for foil feeding, and you need 4 inch wide foil, you're still in the right spot, but you need to request a switch to 1/2" core.

3. Or you may have the "ADAPTER ADAPTER" (not a Kingsley standard) on your M-101, which converts the system back to 1/2" core, mainly since there is so much of 1/2" core foil out there. This is still the right place, but you need to order the foil on 1/2" core.

4. There is a 4th possibility. If you have the setup in 1. above, but 3 inch wide foil is wide enough, you're not in the right place; instead, order your foil at any of the 1/2" core listings for 3 inch foil and request a switch to 5/8" core. And if you have different brand machine, just be careful to order the right core size (1/2", 5/8" or 1") for your foil feeder.




1. THICKNESS Foil comes in varying thicknesses (just like Scott's Big Roll versus Cottonelle); for example, brilliant foil is generally thinner than pigment foil (gloss or matte colors). In fact a 100' roll of most older pigment foil will not fit into the canisters like a 100' roll of brilliant foil will. So pigment foil was normally sold in rolls of 35' to 50', which will fit in the canisters. So, when you receive foil in different sized rolls, it does not mean they are in different lengths, or that you are not getting 35 feet. Once in a while, you will get a double roll (like Charmin) because even though you ordered two 35' rolls, I had a 100' roll (that will still fit in the canister) ready to go, so that's what you'll get (you know, it's the new math: 2 x 35 = 100).

2. FINISH Terms used to describe the finish on the foil can be very confusing; this confusion is heightened by the producers who often seem to toss around their decriptions like a juggler. In an attempt to stay on the same page with our buyers, we use the old Kingsley terms for these finishes. And they are:
Brilliant - the brightest, shiniest finish. This has the most glare and reflection, like chrome or gloss wall paint. The foil is so shiny and reflective that you cannot see into it.
Metallic - slightly less bright and reflective, like a gold Cadillac. The foil's surface seems to have some depth to it. Kingsley produced gold, silver, red, green, blue, copper and purple in both brilliant and metallic finishes. To many folks, "metallic" has come to mean brilliant, and while that may be a perfectly legitimate use of the term in some circles, it won't be here.
Satin - still less bright and less shiny, but with a rich inviting depth (wow, I can't believe I'm saying stuff like this).
Matte - like flat wall paint with virtually no shine. Frequently, there is not a lot of distinction between matte and satin.

Gloss - like high gloss wall paint, but not as shiny as brilliant foils

3. COLORS And then there is all the fun with color names. You know: "I ordered magenta and you sent me fuschia." Well, to my knowledge, I haven't done such a dastardly thing, but I certainly could have. And I confess that I have sent pink instead of dusty rose. Is that really California blue? And what is the difference between hot pink and cerise? Or between turquoise, teal and aqua, especially if they are brilliant. And don't Google it to figure it out; I can't get along without Google, but I no longer try to determine what color turquoise is by Googling it. Once was enough. Again, I will use the old Kingsley color chart as much as possible, so if you have one, hang on to it. Let's just assume that I will do my best to fill your order for specific colors and I will hope you are pleased. And if not, well let's talk about it. Nuff said?

4. WIDTHS Foil widths can be exciting too. First, of all be sure to notice the width of the foil in the description; I try to get that information into the title lines and headers. I offer foil in 2", 3" and 4" widths here, but Howard produced foil in 3 1/2" and 5". Occasionally you only need 1" wide foil, so using a 3" wide roll would sure waste a lot, so I also have 1" wide a 1 1/2" wide rolls of many of the colors. When you order 3" foil, you might get a roll or two that are 2 3/4" (in which case I will always make it up to you, with extra length or some other compensation), and you might get a 3 1/2" roll of Howard foil (in which case, you can just consider it a bonus).

5. LIFE Foil life is very important to me and to you. I want you to be able to order with the confidence that you are getting good viable foil from me. In the case of Premium foil, like in this listing, it's not much of a factor; it's all brand new foil, but because it is very thin, it can be hard to deal with in cutting and rolling. You will probably find an occasional wrinkle, especially if the foil came from near the 1" core that it came on originally, but it will be very minimal, and I apologize for missing it. In new foil, the wrinkle usually doesn't mean the foil material came off, so it will still imprint just fine. Recently, I have switched to a new manufacturer of certain foils because their product is virtually wrinkle free.
It is in the old Kingsley foil where there might be a problem. The Kingsley canisters protected the foil; I have found foil from the 1940s that is still good. But it depends more on the storage conditions. I have several little tricks I use to determine if the foil is good down in the roll. Obviosuly, I can't unroll every roll to check it, but I do carefully examine the foil to make sure you are getting foil you can use. And if I messed up, please let me know and I will replace the roll.

6. CORES Oh yes: foil cores. The core is that little cardboard (occasionally plastic) tube in there that the foil is rolled up on (again, like Angel Soft - boy, that simile has a life, huh?). Well this consideration is dealt with in the previous section, so I'll just ask you to please not forget to let me know if you have particular core requirements.


7. SUBSTRATES There is probably a foil produced by some manufacturer for imprinting just about any surface except metal and glass. The surface material you are trying to imprint is called a substrate. Some foils are better for paper, some for leather, some for wood and some for plastic, but which is which? Generally, this is determined by trial and error, although most producers designate the recommended substrates for each of their foils. Of course, I want to ship you foil that will work on your substrate, and if the foil I have sent to you doesn't work well on your material, just send it back and I will try to find you some foil that will work. I will share the postage expense with you to keep your costs down as much as possible. Please don't keep foil that you can't use and/or give me negative feedback. Let me help you find the foil you need. Usually it will be helpful if you tell me in advance when you are trying to imprint a certain substrate. Let's keep the communication lines open, OK?

8. TEMPERATURE Most normal hot stamping takes place at about 250°, plus or minus 20°. As far as I know, the recommended temperature for imprint any of the nearly 90 colors listed above is 250°; at least that would be the starting point. At our store, we keep our thermostat set at 250° and virtually never change it. 
But there is foil that won't imprint at 250°; it requires a temperature that is higher than the desktop Kingsley machine can produce. Some of this is for wire marking that takes place at 350° or higher. It is virtually impossible to distinguish low temp foils from high temp foils, so some high temp foils invariably creep into the mix with low temp foils. Again, if you receive foil from me that won't imprint at 250°, please don't just give me negative feedback. Let me replace it.


9. DWELL Another factor in determining the quality of an imprint is the dwell time, how long the printhead stays down on the imprint. Normally, the suggestion is to bring the printhead down and move it back up instantly. Here is another factor in the imprint process where practice makes perfect. Occasionally, it is necessary to leave the printhead down for an extra split second in order to obtain a full imprint.

10. PRESSURE The last factor to consider, when imprinting a substrate, is pressure. Probably the most important consideration is the nature of the surface, whether it is a napkin, cardboard, soft leather or wood. For example, soft leather will usually require a lighter touch, while a hard cardboard needs to be pressed very firmly.


I have used Kingsley machines for hot stamping now for 40 years and I have rebuilt more than 500 of these machines which have been sold on eBay and elsewhere, so I'm quite knowledgeable about their capabilities. I have also gotten quite familiar with the specifications of the various foils offered out there. But in the last few years two new processes using foil have appeared: Using laser printers and laminators to produce images with foil and using a polymer plate to produce images. I do not know much about these processes nor if the foils I offer are appropriate for them, but I am open to receiving information.




My special congratulations to you if you read through all of this. Thanks. Dennis C Kelly
