Rub-On Letter and Number Transfer Sheets
It's no secret that I love type in all forms but there is a super soft spot in my heart for rub-on letter and number sheets (a.k.a. Letraset sheets.) Several years ago when I trekked to Vancouver, my Dad took a group of us to Ruby Dog's Art House. I found the motherload of rub-on letter sheets. I bought as many as I could and have been hoarding, I mean, USING them ever since.
A couple of weeks ago I decided to contact Leanne (owner of Ruby Dog's Art House) to ask if she still had any more for sale. She does! I ordered a few for classes (as well as for me) and they arrived the other day. I LOVE them.
Some things you should know-
-The sheets don't always transfer perfectly. It's one of the things that I love about them. I love that grunge look that you get when you just randomly transfer letters. I also like using them to spell out words, etc... Mostly I tend to use them haphazardly for backgrounds, just transferring the letters with a bone folder onto my page.
-The sheets are $3 each plus shipping.
-You can't pick and choose what you want. I LOVED what she sent.
-The sheets are LARGE. They're not the tiny ones in plastic packaging that come in the stores. They're a good size sheet.
-Always store your rub-ons away from heat (they'll dry out) and don't put anything heavy on top of them (sometimes the juicy ones will transfer to their backing paper.)
I don't receive anything special for posting this blurb. I am often asked where I get my rub-on letters and numbers and now you know!
