Type transfer sheets sold under brand names like Letraset, Geotype,
Mecanorma are well known. The emergence of the personal computer and
digital printer caused them to gradually disappear from store shelves.
However, even in their heyday, the stock transfer sheets were limited in
variety of size, color and design. After custom dry transfer services
appeared on the scene, the ability to transform any black and white
image into a transferable (multi-) colour image gave the designer an
ability to produce high fidelity color mockups. Today, few stores handle
stock transfers. However, whenever the substrate is unsuited for digital
reproduction, when metallic colours are involved or a high degree of
spot color accuracy is required, rubdowns are remarkably useful.
