carefully lifting it up with the masking tape. Then you insert the
correct letter in the space.
(c) Pressuretransfer lettering sheets provide quality letters
for indoor use. However, you should only use them for small jobs since
they require much time to apply and have a limited number of each letter
on a sheet.
when a graphics project requires the lettering centered over graphics or
within a certain space. No matter what lettering method (mechanical or
pressuretransfer lettering sheets) you select, center the lettering
using the same process.
First you find the center of the area or graphic on which you must
center the lettering. Then find the letter that is in the center of the
letters you must apply and place it on the center of the area or
graphics. Then apply the remaining letters from the center out.
For example, you must center the letters "Army Training." over a box
that is 2 x 2inches. First, you must find the center of the box,
which is one inch from either side. Next you count the number of
letters, spaces, and punctuations marks in "Army Training.", which is
14. With 14 spaces used in the lettering, the letter in the seventh
space is the center of the group, the letter "r" in training.
Therefore, you place the letter "r" on the center of the box and apply
the remaining letters from the center out. Figure 175 shows the
completed lettering centered over the box. For a graphic presentation,
you would not show the center line of the box; however, the figure shows
it so you can see the phrase is centered over the box.
