FWIW, here is how I deal with rub-down letters.
First, I rub them "in the air". That's to say that I rub the sheet
while holding it so that it touches nothing. For what I know, it's
called pre-release in the graphic arts sector. It helps the
definitive release of the subject. What's more, you can then place it
without having to rub to hard at first to put it on its place. That
way, it's very simple to remedy a mistake : use self-adhesive tape to
take the subject away by touching it with the adhesive. Of course, if
the subject is well placed, you have to burnish it thorougly. Hope
that helps.
