Show and Tell: 1960s Shipping Labels

On our way down to New Jersey, Dave and I stopped in Nyack, NY for some pizza, some peein’ and to mail a package. While there, we stopped at a pretty rad thrift store where I found a true mixed bag of postal ephemera. (We also bought masala milk chocolate and earl gray dark chocolate bars, but that’s something else, entirely!)

I don’t know if this photo really shows off the super, duper, ultra saturation of these colors. They are red, white blue perfection.
