Doesn’t This Feel Like Fall?

Dennison Manufacturing Co., Framingham, MA.  Dealers Catalogue of Tags and Specialties, 1913-1914, 1913, page 133, Crepe Paper (Fall leaves, pumpkins, corn, apples).

It's Thanksgiving week and we are well into the season of Fall, so we decided to feature some trade literature with a Fall theme.

These crepe paper designs can be found in a Dennison Manufacturing Co. catalog entitled Dealers Catalogue of Tags and Specialties, 1913-1914.  Dennison's Decorated Crepe Paper designs came in a variety of seasonal and holiday designs—floral patterns for springtime, patriotic designs for the 4th of July, pumpkins for Halloween, leaves for Fall, and much more.  The designs used as little as two colors or as many as eleven colors and were advertised as using "rich lasting colors that are bright but not vivid, strong though not heavy, varied but still true to art."

This catalog and others by Dennison Manufacturing Co. are located in the Trade Literature Collection at the National Museum of American History Library

More images from this catalog can be found on the Galaxy of Images.
