Item details

I have two of these, pretty much identical, measuring 10 3/4" tall by 4 1/4" wide. As you can see in the picture, these are from 1982. This was also called "dry instant lettering", and it was what you did in the pre-digital age because having something professionally typeset was expensive! I think the fun is really in the packaging; you can see the front and the back in the picture. I love the little thing in the lower left that says "XL Corp Data Report 1982"! Clearly, they were trying to give you ideas for the many uses of these letters! Each has been opened, and as you can see, a few letters have been used; but the packaging on both has remained immaculate. To quote Etsyer RandsHandMades, "They are just cool to look at as a remnant of an earlier graphic age. Frame it. Plan a collage around it." And that, my friends, is what I would suggest.
