Firstly, here are three comics adverts for this promotion, each one published on 10th June 1972.
Full-page ad in colour from "Look-In" No.24
Half-page colour ad from "Teddy Bear"
Full-page black-&-white ad from "Valiant and TV21" — I'm guessing you don't need to read it all again!
Just to be clear: these are not dry rub-down transfers, as normally associated with the brand name 'Letraset',who printed all the other sorts of transfer when called upon to do so — although I had never seen a Letraset sticker until the other day, when Craig Spivey gave me a shock by kindly sending me a 'Letraset Star Wars Stickers' forgery he'd had printed.
I expect you'd like to see the Iron-On transfers. The 'giant' one is 8" x 5":
The text along the top right-hand edge reads: "© 1972 Beaverbrook Ltd. Printed by Letraset".
The seven smaller ones are each about 2" square.
Sorry about the condition of the 'Mother Goose' transfer! I had the good luck to meet Pete (jumat5698 on eBay), & his Father had worked at Ashford. So he had accumulated lots of scraps, including this almost complete (but damaged) uncut half-sheet:
…So you can see I didn't have much choice with that one! He also had this badly damaged pair of 'giant' Iron-Ons, with the bonus that the all-important serial number was on the sheet (bottom right): PR136. — Hooray!
The 'giant' Iron-On further up the page came from a different source, & was still enclosed in its white envelope. When ringo969, who sold it to me, realised he hadn't included the leaflet that came with it, he sent it under separate post. Thanks again, Richard!
It's all some kind of money-laundering scheme, isn't it? And Lindy's story is still making my head spin. (I have more Iron-Ons for you to view, coming shortly.)
