Placement of

Gold  HOT Foil Stamping Letters
Embossing Engraving Letters Type
used in your
Kwikprint Model 86
or
Kwikprint Model 55

for improving your

Hot Foil Stamping Impression
NOT   RECOMMENDED

We do not set the type at the bottom of the
Kwikprint type holder.  It is to close to the
heating element and each successive line
receives less heat and results in a poorly
printed job.  If the operator turns up the heat
or applies more pressure to compensate for
this it damages the foundry type. What occurs
when multiple lines are set is the first line
closest to the heating element gets very hot
and the last line closest to the retaining screw
(show at the top of the holder) does not
receive enough heat.  This cause the user to
turn up the heat or apply excessive pressure
when printing resulting a poor impression and
damaging the foundry type.
We recommend....

Using a 12 point (1/4") bar of Strip Material at the base of this type holder
prior to setting type.  This keeps the heating element (at the base of the
head in this photo) from overheating the first line of type and helps greatly
with an even heat distribution.  This procedure will generate a better
printing impression, sharper printed image and will extend the longevity of
your foundry type.
Top of the type

Place a piece of solid 12 point
strip
material at the top and the bottom
of the type.

Bottom of the type is very important
so the foundry type closest to the
heater does not get overheated.
We do NOT recommend setting type
directly into your Kwikprint.
