The Phantom Profile Iron-On

The Phantom Profile Iron-On transfer was produced in the USA in 1950. Licensed by King Features Syndicate, the producer of the Iron-On transfer is unclear, as is how it was released to the general public.

The Phantom Profile Iron-On transfer is produced in color and is printed on tissue paper. It’s designed to be transferred onto a fabric garment by simply placing the image face down, before applying a hot iron onto the back of the tissue paper. The heat then transfers the image onto the garment when the paper is lifted off.

The image seen in the Phantom Profile Iron-On transfer is in the style of artist Ray Moore. At the base of the image, we find copyright wording ‘© 1950 King Features Syn’. Also seen at the lower part of the Iron-On transfer are instruction, ‘Cut Away Here – Place Color Side Down On Fabric – Press On With A Hot Iron’.

The Phantom Profile Iron-On transfer came in 2 variant colors, green and dark blue. Both color versions can be seen below.

A variety of other King Features Syndicate comic book characters were also produced alongside the Phantom, with Iron-On transfers in a similar design produced in the same year. These include Tillie the Toiler and Mac.
