I have used graphite transfer paper to trace images onto cork handles. If you have a printer you can pretty much put anything you want onto a handle that way.

Thank you Brian . Does the graphite come off after you burn it ?

You're burning on the line left by the graphite so you're burning it off along with the cork under it.. As long as you make the line nice and thin you'll never know it was there.
