How durable is a Rub on Transfer2015-05-17T12:11:24+00:00

We have different types of Rub on Transfers. The process for our Dry Rub on Transfers is designed to cost effectively produce custom and multiple different designs at the same time with no minimum order. These transfers are not abrasion resistant & can be scratched off. However when properly applied to a receptive surface they can be considered permanent. ReproGraphX has numerous mockups that were created with transfers that are as perfect today some 25 years later as the day they where created. For Mockups, Prototypes or other applications that will require regular handling, a clear coating or lamination can be applied making the transfers a perfect solution for almost any application. The hand held Formula 1 content delivery devices were used as working demonstration models. They were painted to the team colors & transfers for logos and graphics were applied & then sprayed with a clear coating. The Vichy Tube was not coated as it was for a 1 time photo shoot, color and marketing approval.

Duplicate Copies VS Product quantity2015-10-15T20:11:27+00:00

If you would like additional duplicate copies of your art, use the Duplicate Copies option selector to chose the total of copies you wish to receive. Ordering 2 sheets 8.5 x 11 is the equivalent of 1 sheet 11×17 inches so the Duplicate Copies option selector is built to calculate the cost based on the 11×17 sheet price and to not double the 8.5×11 sheet cost. Should you need more than 4 Duplicate copies, consider increasing the size of your art to a larger sheet size or contact us with the exact quantity needed. Alternatively, place your order using a combination of the Duplicate Copies & Product Quantity field and Rub-on -Transfer.com will calculate the most cost effective format and will refund the difference before commencing the order.

What is a Custom Dry Rub on Transfer2017-05-20T00:02:15+00:00

A Dry Rub On Transfer is an image printed on a translucent sheet.  The image has a coating of adhesive on it’s back. The image is transferred from the translucent sheet onto another surface by applying light pressure in a rubbing motion. The transfer can be applied to most dust, grease and oil free surfaces.

The transferred image of a Rub-On-Transfer.com transfer appears as if it was printed directly to the item. Dry rub on transfers are referred to as DRY because they are applied dry, without the need for any liquid. A Rub-On-Transfer.com transfer is not a label, a water-slide decal or a T-Shirt heat Transfer

Important qualities to look for in a transfer are;

  • A transfer that is opaque, not transparent, therefore it can be applied to a surface of any color without changing the color of the rub on transfer. A transparent yellow transfer applied to a black surface would allow the black surface underneath to show through the transfer, effectively making the yellow rub down transfer image almost black.
  • A rub on transfer where only the image transfers, a transfer where there is no clear or white border around image that needs to be trimmed, otherwise it is essentially a label. Transfers of this type are not very practical if you have to trim around each and every shape before applying it to the surface of your choice.
  • A transfer with an image that is at a very high resolution, this will ensure sharp well defined text, lines and images.

Custom Dry Rub On Transfers from Rub-On-Transfer.com offer all of the above & many other options and features needed to produce quality transfers for your projects.

Example 2 Color Logo
Here the Transfers ReproGraphX logo is used as an example. The logo is color separated but also includes for quick and precise application, elements that are not needed in the color of the applied final logo. In the preparation of the orange part of the logo, the word reprographx uses a clipping mask to eliminate wasted space as this part is not needed in the final logo, but is used to position the colors together when applying the transfer. If your example is small and will not waste needed space then simply reproduce the logo in it’s entirety in both colors.

Applying the transfers is done in 2 steps, 1 step for the first color and then the 2nd color is positioned and then applied completing the 2 color logo.

The parts of the logo that are not in the needed color are used to located, position or register the 2 colors to each other quickly and precisely which is illustrated in the image.

What Color should I use in my artwork design for Rub on Transfers2015-05-17T12:10:23+00:00

The color to use for Rub on Transfer artwork should be 100% K or 1 spot color. It is important to ensure you use only this 1 color for all your graphics & Logos. A good design & print production practice is to setup 1 color and delete all others with in your artwork document. This ensures that 1 object can not be colored accidentally with a different color that appears visually similar on screen. Objects or graphics in a different color will not print on your transfer sheet. The recommended practice is to download our Rub on Transfer Templates. The Rub on Transfer Template are pre-formated for the size and the recommend color to use. Start designing or paste your existing graphics and re color with the recommended swatch. The color you use in the artwork for a Single Color Transfer does not determine the color your receive. The color of the Transfer received is determined by choosing one of the Single Color Transfer Products listed such as White, Black, Gold, Silver, Foil Etc.
