7 Additional Thoughts.

The Thunderbird label is fantastic, and the quilt that you featured in a previous post? Amazing! I agree with AliB, the labels deserve their own book - a little place to tell their stories.

This is a great little story as I've often noticed cool labels in clothing but never thought much about where they come from. I'd love to see this guy put all of his family's labels into a book—this is a true lost art.

The Thunder Bird label with the ducks from Alpena, Michigan brings back sweet memories. My parents, who are gone now, had a cabin near Alpena where we spent many fondly remembered hours during my childhood. Thanks for sharing.

KeLLy Ann, the first time I saw the label info stamped on the inside of a garment, i was just astounded. But it is more comfortable in undies.

Edgertor, yes, quite a few more. They are on Chris's facebook page, and here is the link. I'm not sure if you will be able to see them, depending on his settings.


They also printed other narrow textiles such as cigarette premiums and ribbons for events and organizations.

sigh, all the lost art that has gone the route of cheap clothing, so much so, they just stamp the cloth.
As much as I love technology, to a point, I miss the Talent.
