Default making your own rub-ons

Thought I'd move this question to the techniques section:

I thought I read awhile back that you could make your own by printing your text backwards on the slick side of a transparency, so this weekend I thought I would try it. After getting over the sticker shock (those things are pricey), I bought the smallest number I could and tried it out. No matter how much I rubbed, none of the ink came off that transparency.

I bought the all purpose kind - the ones for ink jet printers, copiers, etc.

Does anyone know what I did wrong or does it just really not work?

thanks
Nancy

Default rub ons

You need to use ordinary film not the one for printing onto as the ink will dry on that

Here's a couple things I found about making your own rub-ons. I've never tried it...but NEED to. Tell me if you have any luck!

Here's another one I found...it's a little different than the ones listed above.
