You can still get Chartpak and Headline rub on letters in the US. The 1/16"
or 8pt. Helvetica is a resonable size to work if you only need 4 letter
words, and they usually come with about 50 complete alphabets plus a couple
sets of numbers and symbols. The 6pt is better for longer words, but they
are harder to work with. I'm not sure if they make smaller sizes than that,
but I imagine they would be very difficult to work with. Chartpak also
makes symbols, shapes, and they have lots of different fonts. You can
usually buy these in art supply stores by the sheet for about $3-4, but I
believe they also sell them in packs.
