Does any one know how to transfer a design onto said product? I am having problems getting a carbon paper transfer and I have tried xylene before and had no luck, as I have an inkjet printer.  I'm really in a pinch, I'm in the middle of making christmas party invitations.  I would sure appreciate any suggestions.
Thanks guys

I just tried this tonight before I offered advice on it... I don't know how many different kinds of speedball blocks there are, but I did this on a pink speedy-stamp one. I just printed out a reversed image on my inkjet printer (in a light color) and then traced over it with my sulky iron-on transfer pen that I bought at Joann's fabrics. I put my iron on low/med and taped the paper in place. It doesn't take much pressure at all to transfer, just make sure you get contact with every area of your image. I just used the tip of my iron. take a peek by pulling up one side before you take the paper off. I imagine a catastrophe might ensue if you put too much pressure or leave it on too long! Good luck!

You are awesome, I would have never thought to do that, I did just buy a transfer pencil for my embroidery.  Thank you so much!  I will try that today.  YAY!!!  I was thinking it was a lost cause.

I read in a craft book once that you can transfer a print from a B&W picture onto linoleum by putting the print face-down on the linoleum and put a little lighter fluid on the back and pat gently until the ink rubs on to the linoleum, peel the paper off, let dry, then carve. I haven't tried it myself, but I thought I'd throw it out there for you...
