Transfer paper or tracing paper is essentially comparable to the classic carbon paper that was used in typewriters before the advent of Xerox - it serves to transfer cutting patterns on textiles or height lines on cardboard and in general to transfer contour lines, drawings or lettering from a template onto a material that is placed beneath it, If you place the transfer paper between a template and an underlying material, you will, by tracing over the lines of the template with a sharp object, produce corresponding lines that will adhere to the underlying material. It is important to note that in doing this, the lines on the copy will not come out as fine and delicate as the ones on the template (if that is the case).
When using graphite paper, traced lines can be erased successfully (the applied grey colouring is free of both wax and grease). Graphite paper is acid-free and non-toxic as per U.S. standards and can therefore be safely given to children to play with. In addition, the colouring can be easily washed out of textiles and can also, if desired, be wiped off of ceramics, glass or metal surfaces. Transfer paper is very economical and can be used many times over.
Graphite paper is primarily suitable for use on slightly rough and lighter coloured materials. For dark materials and smooth surfaces, TRANSFER PAPER, the coloured variant of graphite paper, produces much better results.
