Thirty-plus years ago the dry transfer technology that put the "Fine" in Archer Fine Transfers was state of the art - today it's obsolete. Originally used by graphic designers to show clients what their packaging would look like, today all of that is done with computers and printers that print the same design directly onto the package prototype for a tiny fraction of the price. As a consequence, the demand for dry transfer chemistry has declined dramatically.
When I started this business thirty-plus years ago we could buy the required chemicals from numerous different suppliers. Today there is only one, and the only company that manufactures the key ingredient, an adhesive with an extended shelf life, has informed our supplier that it is now no longer available. Sadly, this leaves Archer with no option other than to discontinue manufacturing our dry transfers.
Therefore, starting today we are clearing out our entire inventory of DRY TRANSFERS ONLY.
THIS SALE DOES NOT INCLUDE:
(If any of these items are included in your order they will be charged at the full retail price.)
Quantities are limited and all sales are final.
In closing, allow me to make one thing perfectly clear - Archer is not going out of business! We will be transitioning our efforts toward our line of Surface Details, Fabric Texture Appliqués and converting most of our Dry Transfers to waterslide decals.
I sincerely regret any disappointment our loyal customers may be feeling by this news, but nothing lasts forever. It was a good run and your loyalty, honesty and friendship continuously renews my faith in humanity. Thank you.
