This is what I use to transfer titles on to my layouts.

1: Select font & print title using a word program.
2: Flip over paper & completely cover the backside of the title with pencil. The darker the pencil, the darker the transfer.
3: Position on layout, affix with tape & trace using a ball point pen. The ball point pen allows for smooth transfer- the pen doesn't even have to have ink in it.
4: Remove the paper to reveal transferred image.

Best part is, if you are not completely satisfied, you can always erase it.
