January 24, 2011Vintage Security Envelope Patterns
Okay, so this is a little bizarre, but I am going to show you guys some scans of vintage security envelope patterns.
Yep, you read that right! All these fun patterns are from vintage security envelopes.
Where did I get them all, you ask? Well, remember that post I did a little while ago about my great-grandfather’s stamp collection?
Well, to organize the loose stamps in his enormous collection, my grandfather would use regular envelopes cut down to the size he needed. Needless to say, there are TONS of these babies in his collection.
Now I am reorganizing the loose stamps into modern stamp storage materials, and these beauties are going to be retired.
But before they take the long journey westward, I decided to have a little fun with the scanner.
Pretty sweet, though, aren’t they? I am thinking about saving some of these and maybe doing a little art project. You know, during all of the free time I have. *insert sarcastic eye roll*
It’s Sam The Eagle!
