What are Transfers?
Transfers are high resolution images that can be applied to a multitude of surfaces such as wood, walls, doors, metal, fabric, lampshades, pillows, mirrors, glass, etc. The transfers are easy to apply - it is just like rubbing on a tattoo. There is no water, paint, glue or other substances needed. The images are transferred by the motion of rubbing with an applicator stick that is supplied.
