type tape

February 29, 2012

Every time I come across a snip of vintage packaging, it confirms my suspicion that everything was just so much more charming back in the day. Sure, you’d probably kick it at the ripe old age of 30 after catching a cold, but man. Graphic design back then was something else.

The folks at Seen+Noted clearly agree. Behold, their stunning modern reproductions of vintage typewriter ribbon tins. How gorgeous are these?

And there’s a poster!

Note: Unfortunately, it seems from their related post that these prints and poster were created for a specific event and aren’t on sale anymore. I say we all write in and beg them to print a second run of these for sale – I’d buy one of those posters in a heartbeat, wouldn’t you?
