UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE- ARNOLD MOKERROW, HARRY WALTON, AND GEORGE ERNEST SHEARSMITH, OF MAN- CHESTER, ENGLAND, ASSIGNORS TO DRAKE PRINTING COMPANY; LIIITED OF MANCHESTER, ENG-LAND.
METHOD OF MAKING TRANSFERS.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that we, ARNOLD McKEnRow, HARRY \VAL'roN, and GEORGE ERNEST S11musmrmsubjects of the King of Great Britain and Ireland, andresidents of Blake street, Hulme, Manchester, in the county of Lancaster, England, have invented certain new; and useful Improvements in Methods of Making'lransfers. ofwhich the following is a specification.
This invention relates to transfers of the kind described in the specification of U. S. Patent No. 1030908 and has for its object to improve upon such transfers so that they can be readily and efficiently transferred to printed 01' dyed goods and so that the transferred design is unaffected by the pattern or color of the goods upon which it is placed.
()ur invention comprises the provision upon the design which is printedupon a carrying body from which it is detached by heat, of both an opaque layer or covering and an adhesive coating. the latter being of such a nature that it melts by heat but rests upon the surface of and .does not penetrate or sink into the adjacent color layers.
In one convenient application of our invention, we provide the design upon the transfer sheet in the manner described in the specification previously referred to, that transferred to printed or dyed goods so that the pattern or color of the latter does not interfere with the design. The opaque covering is allowed to dry and harden and when practically dry is printed or varnished with an adhesive coating which melts by Specification of Letters Patent.

heat. By reason of the preliminary drying of the opaque covering, theadhesive coating rests in a film upon the latter and does not penetrate or sink into the colors of the design.
The adhesive coating may comprise gum the fabric, and a heated iron or the like'applied to the back of the carrying body. .The adhesive layer then attaches itself to the fabric and draws the design from off the fusible layer upon the carrying body.
\Vith our improved transfer, the adhesive coating in. conjunction with the opaque layer insure the effectual transference of the design with a suitable ground to the printed or dyed goods.
Our transfers may be employed for placing designs on fabrics, wood, glass, leather or other materials.
Having now described our invention, what we claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is 1. The process of producing transfers for use in transfer printing by heat alone, consistingin providing a support or carrying body with a surface impermeable to wax, coating the said surface with an easily melting material, printing a design upon said coating by means of surface printing, covering said design with an opaque groundwork, and printing a fusible adhesive coating upon said opaque covering, as set forth.
