Re: [BKARTS] old staming foil

Swift, though now out of business, produced real gold foil. I am not sure if they produced imitations, but I would assume the real gold would still be good for use.

Hi all,
I recently acquired a used kwikprint, and it came with a box full of rolls and rolls of foil. A lot of it is not labeled, some is labeled Peacock or Swift, and a great deal of it says simply "all purpose" inside the tube. They could be anywhere between 5 and 40 years old. Here's my question: do you think it will work? Does foil have a "stamp by" date?
