Dry Transfers for Custom Book Bindings

Our Dry Transfers Were Recently
Featured in Martha Stewart Weddings Magazine

We made custom dry transfers for Martha Stewart Weddings Magazine, June 2017 edition.This was an unusual usage for our transfers. Michael Mccormick, from Martha Stewart Weddings, ordered three custom dry transfers. Three letter size, one each in Pantone 110 Yellow, Pantone 186 Red, and Pantone 2945 Blue.

Michael gave us Adobe Illustrator files because vector artwork is best for our process. We did not know exactly how he was going to use the rub-ons and then we got a copy of the article. What a great idea. If you have a wedding coming up, Martha Stewart Weddings Magazine has so many ideas we would recommend you subscribe.

Per the article:

BOLD MOVES offers a bright idea of adding the punch of primary colors to a backdrop of white. Umbrellas in assorted colors can liven up a plain white dance floor, or provide shade during a sunny outdoor ceremony.  They suggest creating a welcome bag with the same colors. Even suggesting the bride or bridesmaids stand out wearing bright yellow, red or blue shoes.Your invitations can match with bright colors. If you stay with all white settings primary color candles can carry the theme.

Michael took our transfers and applied them to the bindings of white journals.

This serves two purposes; table chart and the journal can be a favor they take home. Look how beautiful the final project turned out. This could be extra special for a book-loving couple.

The theme can continue with the icing used for the Wedding cake and even the next day brunch “sweaters for the bridesmaids” embroidered with their names in those same colors.

Our custom dry transfers can be used on many different substrates.

Since they are lacquer ink with lacquer adhesive applying them to walls, glass, wood, plastic, aluminum, books, paper, violin bows, guitars, props for movies and of course prototypes have all been successful projects.

One of our customers even applies them to the interior of shoes.

Our website is “user-friendly” and our production time is quick. We like to be open and upfront with our clients. We offer a published price list right on our website. Don’t be fooled by other sites that list a “starting price” and additional cost for color match, backing color with white and adjusts per time-frame. Our price list shows the total cost and our turnaround is always in 24 to 48 hours.

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.
