DRY TRANSFER PROCESS

We offer a custom dry transfer service that is aimed at professional model makers, graphic designers, product designers, artists, art gallery & museum curators, exhibition designers and scale modellers.

You can make your own DIY transfers, or decals, at home on your printer, but this process yields transfers not suited to a professional environment. The transfers will lack the colour richness and opacity that can be achieved with the process we use.

Using film and photosensitive chemicals, we make a negative is made for each colour on the design that is imprinted onto a transfer sheet.

DRY TRANSFER ARTWORK PREPARATION

We will colour match your transfer to any pantone, metallic or other reference. Transfers can be produced with either a low or high tack adhesive on them depending on your requirements.

For single colour transfers provide the artwork in black with a colour reference.

For multi coloured transfers it is best to provide separated artwork with a reference for each colour. We can separate artwork for you at a cost of £48.00/hr.

Artwork produced by us on computer from your annotated sketches will be faxed, emailed or posted to you so you can confirm that it is correct before the transfers are made.

This service is typically used by product designers for logos, numbering and lettering, or by architectural model makers for detailing on buildings such as windows and doors.

We have also undertaken work for the hobby market, producing detailing for trains and military vehicles.
