DecalProFX opens the door for unlimited flexibility to do most anything. In fact, since 2005 when we developed this process, we have yet to come across a surface that you can not transfer an image to... from stainless steel to a soft wax candle.
Regardless of where you find, create, 'beg, borrow or steal' images, you can quickly turn anything into a real dry transfer graphic and put it on any surface in under 10 minutes.

The video above shows how a scanned graphic was converted into dry transfer and applied to a sheet of soft cardboard. The reason we used soft cardboard was to demonstrate how you can apply DecalProFX® images to extremely delicate surfaces without damage to the target surface. Conventional commercially made dry transfers require quite a bit of pressure using a burnishing tool for a proper transfer. Trying to do this on cardboard would totally crush it.
Here's another example of how easy it is to make a dry-transfer on-demand...
So let's say you got a holiday greeting card and liked the graphic... and, you have a plain vase that you'd like to spruce up. Here's how simple it is to make a dry-transfer image and apply it a few minutes of time. Here's how to turn a full-color 'greeting card' into a dry-transfer graphic and apply it to any surface.
Step 1: CAPTURE THE IMAGE
Scan the image into your computer and add a temporary 1/4" black border around the graphic then print onto the transfer paper. The added black border seals the image during the water-release in Step 4 then trimmed off before the adhesive is applied.
Step 2: APPLY CLEAR COAT FOIL
Apply a piece of ClearCoat foil over the color image and then run through the laminator and peel, leaving a barrier clear coat over the toner image. ClearCoat for color images or any other foil for a B&W image.
Step 3: BOND MYLAR CARRIER
Lay a piece of Mylar Carrier film over the image and run again through the laminator again to create a static-cling bond to the ClearCoat. This is the first (weaker) of the two adhesives we use.
Step 4: WATER BATH
Now a quick water bath to release the graphic from the transfer paper. The image stays bonded to the Mylar Carrier as you lift it out of the water.
Step 5: APPLY ADHESIVE SPRAY
Dry the image with a paper towel, trim the black borders off and apply two quick shots of the special KK-2000 adhesive spray, the second (stronger) of the two adhesives.
Step 6: TRANSFER
Rub the image down with finger pressure, peel back the Mylar Carrier and discard. All over-spray adhesive stays on the Mylar Carrier as it's peeled back leaving nothing but the graphic on the target location.
