Rubdown transfers still “Apply”




In an industry where digital printing has taken over the vast majority of graphic production for comps and prototypes, there is still a demand for rubdown transfer graphics that are printed conventionally using traditional inks on a transferable substrate. CAPS57 is one of only a handful of companies that can still provide this offering as they have a fully staffed Color Proofing Department that can match any color as well as provide metallic options for whatever the need is.  These rubdown transfers can be printed in as many colors as required and are either provided in sheet form for the customer to apply themselves, or if needed, CAPS57 can help with the application.

Rubdown transfers are used by package designers, engineers, model makers etc. as an easy and relatively inexpensive way to decorate a package or product prototype. CAPS57 produces these graphic transfers for many different industries such as electronics, food & beverage, beer & spirits, beauty & cosmetics, automotive and more. Rubdown transfers have other applications as well, they can be used to decorate glass or any smooth surface like an entryway door or a conference room wall. So, if the goal is to apply a graphic on or over something without it looking like a label or sticker, a rubdown transfer is a great option and CAPS57 can help.

CAPS57 can provide all of your comping and prototyping needs. Just call us at 312-279-5200 or check us out on our website at
