Custom Dry Transfers for Props in Apple TV+’s Hit  ‘Severance’

 Custom Dry Transfers for Props in Apple TV+ Hit Show ‘Severance’

Our custom dry transfers are again gracing the props in a cutting-edge drama, and this time, it’s for the Apple TV+ sci-fi sensation ‘Severance.’ The hit show’s prop stylists abundantly used dry transfer decals for logos and other art on a variety of highly visible objects – voice recorders, business cards, mugs, water bottles, disk sleeves, and even recycling bins. The rub-down transfers add a customized appearance to a range of items used by the fictional Lumon Corporation employees.

‘Severance’ is thrilling hard-core sci-fi fans and reeling in a broader audience with its fascinating story about unexplained numbers and the division of employees’ brains into two parts. You’ll need to watch to understand more, but the show is already a conversation starter on many workplace topics. Some writers and reviewers consider it the ultimate (and disturbing) Gen-Z office satire and one of the best sci-fi shows of this decade. If any of this sparks your curiosity, it’s definitely worth watching.

Rub-On Transfer Decals Have a High-End Appearance

Using dry transfer decals for props, whether for a TV series, feature film, or prototypes for a trade show booth, gives many objects a high-end appearance. They instantly produce the appearance of final manufactured products and rub on instantly with no adhesive residue. Our work on props for ‘Severance’ began with one or two items and grew to include many more once the stylists and producers saw their high-end appearance. They helped add a sense of realism to the props in the show.

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.
