Cambridge Custom Transfers

When my ability to print waterslide transfers became known, I was asked to make my sheets available to fellow railway modellers. This I was happy to do on an informal basis, but I had no desire to set up a business as such. Accordingly, via this web-site, I am able to list the transfer sheets that I have produced, and to make them available to others. My charges are intended simply to cover my costs, and I do not advertise or attend exhibitions.
