Let me say that I am a rub-on novice. It seems every time I do one, I can't tell when the entire image is transferred, and I end up pulling off the backing with the image still attached. I ordered the Wholy Cow Rub-Ons because I thought the images were "Bold and Beautiful" ( I have no comment about the soap opera :). The rub-ons come exactly as they are shown on sb.com and transfer soooo easily. The slightest rub of the popsicle stick transfers it onto your page and it's very easy to tell when the entire thing is transferred. I highly recommend these rub-ons to beginners and eveyone else!
