I post this here because I think it falls in rather well with gallery showing of work and in that respect presentation.

Anyhow, you know how when you go to the art musem, you will often see info about the painting or whatever it is printed on the wall? That is, the text appears directly on the wall itself and not on some sort of tag. I want to know how this is done. I'm thinking it's done with some sort of transfer, but I'm not sure exactly what kind nor do I have any idea regarding how I'd go about doing something like this myself.

Anyone out there know how this is accomplished?

It's done by transfer just as you suggest. I'm involved with a gallery in London and sometimes help hang the exhibitions and we use a small graphics company who produce the text that we want at the required size on a transparent material that simply sticks to the wall for the duration of the show. It's relatively inexpensive and can be done virtually as you wait, I'm sure that you will have similar places in Chicago.

Cheryl, I think that was the exact stuff that was used for my exhibition - the only thing 'stuck' to the wall was my name, however. Photograph information was on little mat-board cards.

The vinyl letters certainly do look sharp.
