Welcome to the one-stop destination for images and information about Action Transfers and Instant Pictures, and the home of SPLAT (the Society for the Preservation of Letraset Action Transfers).

Here you can find such treasures as Super Action Transfers, Patterson Blick Instant Picture Books, Waddingtons Panoramas, Busy Bee Instant Picture Packs, Super Action Heroes, Kalkitos, Action Replay, PrestoMagiX, Thomas Salter, cereal & comic Free Gifts (or 'premiums', for US visitors) & endless varieties of dry rub-down, rub-on, or rub-off transfers. We even have some tattoos, water-slide & iron-on transfers, & following great public demand, our own online Action Transfers games.

What Are Transfers?

"What Are Transfers?" is a series of ten interlinked articles which cover everything you might like to know. But to find out about the history of Letraset, or about transfer printing, or to go on a tour & see transfers being produced, try this set of three articles:

A Brief History of Letraset & Action Transfers

We also have a chronological list of every known Letraset-related transfer. If you're interested in finding a particular item, or just in learning, this is an amazing resource, & is the result of many years of research:

The Chronology

We've been adding tens of thousands of images from the SPLAT Scan Archives (which in their raw form occupy well over a terabyte), plus huge amounts of information to accompany the images. You will be able to find this inside, under the 'Articles' menu.

Since this website is still growing, you may not find the best stuff immediately. Keep coming back, because we will be adding to it as quickly as we can. And by the way, we can do requests!

Finally, we are gradually replacing the images inherited from "7 Wonders" with larger, clearer versions. It's worth checking items you've already visited, to see if they've been updated.

This website is free to view, but due to its popularity it costs a great deal to keep online. So if you're kind & good, please use this PayPal button. All the money received will go towards hosting & maintaining action-transfers.com. Every donation helps — however small. Keep us alive — thank you!
