PREPARING YOUR ARTWORK FOR DRY TRANSFERS

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 £50.00/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 undertaked work for the hobby market, producing detailing for trains and military vehicles.
