For those who are curious about Instantex: This product line was introduced by Letraset to complement their Letratone (1966) range, see screentone. The Letratone library offered 236 different textures and shades in 1971 and was extended to more than 300 by 1981. While Letratone came as self-adhesive foil sheets for cutting and pasting, Instantex uses a rubdown technique, just like Letraset’s letterform and symbol sheets. A catalog from 1971 shows 20 different textures, By 1993, the Instantex range was extended to 30 texture styles, plus variants in ten colors.
