German translation:Abziehschrift / Abziehbuchstaben
Explanation:
Those are sheets of lettering available in art stores that are peeled off their backing and pasted (self-adhesive) on a layout to give it a "printed" look.

I used them 30 years ago in Germany and they are still available in the US, though nowadays it's easier to computer-generate a "rough" (that's the term) layout.
