I bought this to try because I never seem to have the right sentiment for cards when I need it. I thought making my own rub-ons on my computer would be awesome. I was right!
I took it slow first and just did black text for Halloween cards. They turned out very well. I was happy because I got to choose my font, and my sayings. I did stuff like "R U Scared", "Got Spooky" and so on. Things I haven't seen on a rub-on elsewhere.
It works great. It does take a little time to get the adhesive on without bubbles but after that you will love it.
I love RUB ONS, but I was tired of not finding what I needed. I have not used this product yet, but I watched a u-tube on how to create custom rub ons with it and I know I will be very pleased to be able to create perfect rub ons in colours I need and of images or art I desire.
I too love the idea of being able to create my own custom rub-ons. It is ideally a fantastic product but it was slightly difficult to use. The package I purchased had all white/semi-translucent sheets with modified instructions (because originally, four of the white sheets should have been blue). I could not tell which sheets were the adhesive sheets and which was the actually the rub-on sheets. Eventually I did figure it out after ruining a sheet.
This is no different than printing on vellum and cutting it out, except this is more work. You still get that "halo" effect unless you have a simple image that can easily be cut out. Don't bother with intricate images
