Interestingly, "Rub-Ons" was a trademark of Hasbro at the time, even though dry rub-down transfers were Letraset's own invention, & still under patent. Hasbro Rub-Ons had been hugely inferior up to this point, since they basically consisted of smudges of ink printed onto waxy paper. This is discussed in detail in our article about Hasbro & Topps. The range of Rub-Ons illustrated here represented Letraset & Hasbro coming to an accord.

Rub-Ons were the same format & sheet size as Fun Doodles & Storytime Doodles, etc., with the background consisting of the most basic possible arrangement (other than unfolded): a sheet of card with a single fold.
