Dry transfer lettering (or “rub-on”) has become an increasingly popular technique used by book publishers to create precise text across a variety of surfaces. To use it effectively, preprinted letters or graphics must be applied by pressing them down with fingertips or applying pressure with an airbrush.
By defaming their character and pressing against an opposing surface.

Dry transfer printing offers an efficient and accurate alternative to hand-drawn lettering or wet adhesive letters for text application, enabling professional texts, logos, titles and graphics to be produced for book covers, magazine ads, printed materials or media applications.

Dry transfers involve applying transfer paper with letters or images you desire onto any surface and pressing against it with a stylus or burnishing tool to transfer text, creating an indelible design that lasts forever.

Dry transfer printing stands out among its peers for its versatility; it can be applied to surfaces including paper, cardboard, plastic, metal and glass making it suitable for publishing projects like book cover illustrations, signage or packaging.

Dry transfers offer many advantages to publishing environments with short turnaround times, including their ability to produce precise letters or graphics without drying time or risk of smudging when they dry, saving both time and effort when meeting tight deadlines that must be met quickly.

Dry transfer printing allows for fast corrections; any misapplication errors during application can easily be wiped away without harming the surface, making this technique especially suitable for working on intricate designs that need multiple attempts at revision and adjustments to their plans.

Dry transfer printing technology has long been relied upon by book publishers and publishing houses as an efficient, versatile, and user-friendly means of creating professional texts and graphics with significant visual appeal – including letters or designs that stand out. Due to its flexibility, efficiency, and user friendliness, dry transfer has quickly become the go-to method for adding high-quality lettering or designs on printed materials such as book covers, magazine pages, promotional collateral or any printed product for visually striking results!
