High-quality dry transfers are ideal as custom guitar decals for logos and other visual elements. Their appearance on fine musical instruments is impressive – and they bring significant advantages over methods like waterslide decals.

Because they go on dry, transfer decals for guitars (and other musical instruments) can be applied easily to fine wood surfaces with no damage. Madtown’s logo is usually represented in 2/colors. Image Transfers can produce the outline of the logo art in Black ink and offer options to represent the Gold or Silver interior. We can even provide a sparkling metallic effect that makes the appearance more unique and one-of-a-kind.

Our dry transfer guitar decals also offer Madtown’s founder Anthony Bragg one essential advantage he finds especially essential: permanence. When you apply rub-on transfers to a smooth surface like wood, they are instantly semi-permanent. To make them permanent, apply a topcoat of lacquer – no further effort required. Because Madtown’s guitars are handcrafted and highly sought-after, maintaining their visible branding throughout the life of the instrument is of significant importance. For nearly any high-quality, one-of-a-kind, or small-batch product, custom dry transfers are the optimal solution for logos, lettering, or any visible detailing. They are available in any color as well as custom foil transfers and metallic effects and maintain absolute clarity at medium and smaller sizes.

We partner with them to assure that logos and other custom guitar decals look as elegant as the finished instruments themselves. In general, our work is well suited to custom and one-of-a-kind items, or small-batch runs of premium products. Our rub-down transfers can be applied quickly and easily with the burnishing tool we provide. They produce a finished look on par with manufactured products and work on any dry, flat surface from wood to glass, metal, and plastic. We can provide all Pantone colors, and for projects featuring text or lettering, we’re a popular alternative to the former Letraset letters.

Madtown Guitars is a Madison, Georgia-based maker of handcrafted musical instruments.

Owner/Luthier Anthony Bragg is passionate about every detail on his guitars, including their logos.

“For me, making musical instruments with logos is more than just an identifier in the marketplace,” he says. “They are badges of pride and honor reserved only for the finest instruments we produce.”

Anthony has been impressed with the quality of the dry transfer decals Image Transfers provides. We’re proud to say he sees the superiority of our product compared to other methods.

“For several years, I used waterslide decals – but I never really cared for the effect the moisture had over time,” he said. “The dry transfer decals are better quality, easier to use, more cost-effective (per logo), and once sealed become permanent. I use them for logos and to serialize the instruments and mark location of origin as well.”

Image Transfers are custom dry rub-on transfer specialists. We make only one thing: custom rub down transfers for graphic designers, artists, and model-makers. A dry transfer (or rubdown) is an image printed on a translucent sheet. The image has a coating of adhesive on its back. The image is transferred from the translucent sheet onto another surface by applying light pressure in a rubbing motion. The dry transfer can be applied to any surface that is free of dust, grease or oil. Dry transfers are referred to as DRY because they are applied dry, without the use of water or solvents. A dry transfer is not a slip-off label or a water decal, instead, the transferred image appears as if it was printed directly onto the item. Our dry transfers are opaque because we back the colors with white, so our rubdowns can be applied to a surface of any color without changing the color of the rub-on transfer. We consider dry transfers a semi-permanent application. A top coat of clear lacquer can make them more permanent. Our production artists can match all Pantone Matching System (PMS) colors including Metallic. Standard transfers are semi-gloss but we also offer matte and uncoated finishes. We deliver within as little as 24 hours. -- Specialties: Custom Rub Down Dry Transfers, Art Gallery Signage & Museum Labels, Custom Transfers for Product Prototypes, Comps & Mock-ups, Dry Transfers for Scale Models.

    I have built a guitar from a kit. it was a les Paul lookalike . but I don’t have a name tag for it ,IE gibson fender. I would like one made with ( Wayne Paul ) so I can place it on the headstock of what I made.

      Wayne, We can certainly work with you on this project. Most clients create their own artwork and upload it to our website. Pricing is published right on our website at this link. Pricing goes by artboard size area so clients usually gang-up/repeat artwork or logos to fill the entire area. If you need help with artwork we can do that for you and get back to you with a cost once we know all the details of the project. Feel free to call the studio or email back to us with any questions or issues. We hope we can work on this project with you.
