"Now. Printing you can do yourself. (That looks like a a printing press did it)." (Carlstadt, NJ: Prestype, Inc., no date [1960s]). This is a packet of samples for Prestype dry-transfer lettering and Presfilm dry transfer shading films and color tints. As acquired, it contained two unused Prestype samples and one example (not a working sample) of Presfilm capabilities. Both images at left link to the same PDF reprint of this packet.
Thanks are due to Jenny Addison, proprietor of Lock and Key Press ( http://lockandkeypress.wordpress.com/) for preserving this information, in difficult circumstances, so that I was able to acquire it.
The Prestype/Presfilm literature reprinted here was published in the US without copyright notice at a time when such notice was required to secure copyright. It therefore passed into the public domain upon initial publication. The reprints of it here remain in the public domain.
