Reply Yes, I love that sticker too. Thanks for checking them out. Not all shops had stickers, and most get rubbed off – it’s the odd record that still has one intact. Digging for 78s in L.A. you come across the sticker for the shop on North Main St. all the time. They must have done a brisk business. It’s a great graphic. Reply Beautiful. Reply Thank you! Reply great stuff! a year or so ago, i had a few greek records arrive broken, but i kept the label areas for little stickers just like these… Reply These are totally beautiful– the fonts! They seem really tactile. Reply Thank you – glad you enjoy them. At some point I’ll whip up a graphic gallery of import stickers & stamps which were also often affixed to 78s… Reply That would be fabulous. I can’t wait to see it. Reply What a nice collection. This is is all new to me. Reply Along with the mechanical copyright stamps, I actively collect these stickers.
