The Gaff Factory - A comprehensive dry-mounting tutorial by Craig Matsuoka

Making dry-mounted gaffs just got a whole lot easier!

This new 80 page ebook introduces you to the wonders of dry mounting tissue (a.k.a. "DMT"). What's DMT? It's an adhesive that lets you make gaffs that look, feel, and snap like a normal card. If all you've ever known are rubber cement, sprays, and glue sticks, then you've been missing out big-time. This book will open your eyes.

On the other hand, perhaps you heard of DMT, but never bothered to try it because the equipment costs turned you off. Or maybe you gave up on it after getting horrible results with a clothes iron. Well, it's time for you to take a second look.

Dry mounting techniques have always been kept somewhat on the down-low, and few sources of information are available about it. Existing material on the subject often gives it shallow treatment and leaves students puzzled when things don't go as smoothly as the instructor says they should. If this has been your experience, then you want this ebook. The Gaff Factory was written by someone who feels your pain and has gone through a great deal of effort to make the process easy to understand.

If you've been afraid of DMT, this book will banish your fear and tip the secrets of success. You'll learn how to get professional quality results without expensive dry mounting presses or a wonky clothes iron. And if you shop wisely, all the necessary equipment and materials can be rounded up for under fifty dollars. The beauty of this system is that we keep things simple. There's nothing to build, and everything can be bought "off the shelf" and used as is.

You'll also learn how to make split face gaffs with virtually undetectable seams, and an unusual method of indirectly laser printing on cards that doesn't require stripping away the finish [This printing method requires an item that is not easily obtainable outside the U.S.A.]. It works without removing the air-cushion finish and does not involve stickers, clear labels, iron-on t-shirt transfers, or waterslide decal paper. As a bonus, the download includes pips and indexes in vector format that you can manipulate in free open source DTP software.
