I was going through some things at home and ran across these. I saw them once many years ago. These are calling cards that were printed when you graduated. These are my Mom's although I remember having some and they inserted into your graduation announcements. I have no idea if they still do this and of course any of mine are long gone. Above is my Mom's card and the metal plate that they must have been printed from and a piece of paper it was wrapped in. We did not trade them but they obviously did. Here are a sample of some of her classmates. I probably have 50-60 different ones with different type styles and embossing. Very interesting. I will have to figure out something to do with them.
I love old paper things especially with good type. Maybe something here will inspire a new font.
