About the Unofficial Action Man HQ ShopThis website has been created to support the hobby of collecting Action Man. We aim to add stickers and products that will assist in your restoration and enjoyment of the hobby. New products will be added from time to time. It is 100% unofficial, but centered around keeping the Action Man phenomena alive.
About our Action Man Stickers and Decals
Our stickers are re-artworked where possible, or rescanned to closely match the original vintage stickers. The stickers are not officially available elsewhere, so fill a gap in the market.
Action Man repro sticker and badge application tips
FABRIC BADGES: Fabric is on a carrier paper that can be separated from the fabric after cutting out. We recommend a fresh blade as we have found this gets the best results. Straight cuts are best performed with a quality knife (such as a scalpel) and metal ruler. Curves are better with a good pair of dressmaking scissors. We recommend Spray Mount as being a good adhesive that is repositionable and stops fraying. The inks are pigment (not water based) and fade resistant, but if you are using a fabric glue, always best to test methods with an off-cut on a spare piece of material to make sure colours do not run.
PAPER STICKERS : We recommend a fresh blade on a cutting mat as we have found this generally gets the best results. Straight cuts are best performed with a quality knife (such as a scalpel) and metal ruler. Curves can be performed with a knife, but are sometimes better with a good pair of scissors. Getting the back off these stickers can be tricky at these smaller sizes, but gently tease a knife blade between the sticker and backing, or try with your nail / gentle bending action.
Good luck and enjoy your restoration project.
