Stick-On Letters

Roland, I examined Sue's "Gran Turismo" at WSP, and noted the custom stick-on letters and logo. Do you maintain a lettering department in which gnomes wearing bifocals carefully apply each letter and element by hand? Or is it some sort of pre-made sheet which can be pressed into place all at once?

My 140 has stick on letters, and one of them was wrongly chosen (see photo). I get a little chuckle out of this. This shows that the letters must not be on a pre-made sheet. Perhaps my gnome needs stronger bifocals.

The letters are from a pre-made sheet, and they are not from individual lettrs. The parts between the sheet are pulled away in one piece, leaving just the letters. Of course, one can do a bit of trickery in Photoshop to come up with any result.
