Last week during my visit to Terrapin / Stationers Engraving & Printing Co. I had a chance to watch the engraving process first hand — something truly amazing to see in person. It was equally amazing to take a trip back in time via the Terrapin archive. The company has 50+ years of old business cards, stationery and other printed goods sitting around. The good news is, they didn’t mind letting me look through it.
Looking through this old stuff was really interesting. I love seeing the old graphics and the old style addresses and phone numbers. Need to call the Hotel Astor? You can reach them at Circle 6-6262. Need to speak to Martin Finkelstein? He’s at Oregon 4-5360. Great stuff.
