While the concept of templates literally dates back to prehistoric cave painting, it was the advert of thin, durable and translucent plastics in the 1950's that made modern templates possible.
Modern templates make it easy, fast, and accurate to repeat, create, or insert almost any shape onto literally any surface-paper, vellum, fabric.
