#a46 :: Scissors sharpener

March 30, 2008

0330081.jpgBanks used to do cleverer things to get your money than yell at you through mass media.

Die-cut a couple of chunks of pasteboard, capsule glue them together around a snip of steel rod, and print helpful instructions and your brand name onto the thing. And hey, maybe someone will remember you fondly the next time their scissors get dull.

They moved on to credit cards and sub-prime mortgages and other wacky stunts, and they left useful ephemera like this behind.

I’m going to guess this is older than 1960, but so timeless is the font, I can’t place it any more precisly than that. I wonder how well it works, but hey, all our scissors are pretty sharp.
