View Full Version : Thin Stock Exhibit

01-09-2010, 07:15 PM
I won a boxing lot recently and one card kinda' stumped me (alhough that's not hard to do).

An exhibit of Charly Norkus (normal image) is on very, very thin stock, and has a gloss to it (like a Fatima).

Any ideas ??

Thanks Scott

It is an ad piece. Early ESCO machine fronts used actual cards glued to the backing board. Later they printed the card fronts on glossy paper and used those instead. I guess it was lighter and easier to work with.

Thanks Adam, that makes sense.
