Rub on Transfer Decals

Rub – on transfers are decals that can be applied without the use of water or other solvent. The decal itself is on a backing material such as paper or plastic sheeting much like a transparency. The dry transfer is placed in the desired location with the backing side up.


The decal is then applied by burnishing the backing. The contact side of the decal includes a pressure-sensitive adhesive; the combination of heat and pressure causes the decal to stick more strongly to the new surface than to the backing. When the backing is removed, the decal remains. We recommend a clear coat to permanently seal the transfer and protect from wear and tear.
