For #markupmonday I have one of my favorite tape measure advertising pieces. K&E embossed cardboard sign. I wasn't able to get a good picture showing how deep the embossing is on the sign. The embossed tape itself is three D, very realistic. Have no idea how old this is, maybe 30's or 40's. The sign is 7-1/8th x 15-1/2 Thanks for looking😊😁

It's so affordable, kindly dm to order for yours.
For #tapemeasuretuesday I have a little restoration project I've been working on for the last few weeks. When this Roe tape measure counter display came to me it was in pretty rough shape, as you can tell from the last picture. Fortunately it has no glue joints, so I was able to unfold it and lay it flat. From there I sprayed a light mist of water on the non printed side and pressed it between paper towels under my anvil. After a week and several paper towel changes it flattened out nicely and I was able to reassemble it. Probably from the late 50's or early 60's. Still not in the best shape, but very displayable. Thanks for looking! 😃
Keuffel and Esser Level Square Tape pictured with the original 1957 add introducing it as a new tape. This tape does it all as you can see from the picture on the back of the package, which just screams 1950's. Very common tape to find outside the original package, very rare tape to find in the original package. Thanks for looking 😉

By their tools, we shall know them!😊
A seamstress, a tailor, a fashion designer, any of these names is fine by me. So long you can relate with what I do. My tape rule, this is part of my identity. It speaks for itself, no introduction needed.

Finally finished! If you've been following this project you will know it started with me finding a vintage 1950's glass panel from a Carlson tape measure counter display. I immediately recognized it from a post by @oldtape61 who has the original case. Barry was gracious enough to send me several pictures of the original case so I could reproduce it. The last photo is a collage of the pics he sent me. I made two changes from the original. First I put six tapes in the display case instead the original four because I think it fills out the case better. Second I added a hinged panel on the back so I could store some Carlson replacement blades in there. All and all I am very happy with the finished product. Thanks for looking 😁mo
While I wait for the finish on the reproduction Carlson display I am working on to dry, I thought for #tapemeasuretuesday I would post this early 1950's Carlson tape display with a few original tapes. Always liked how colorful this display is. Thanks for looking 😀😊😋
For #stanleysaturday I have several different versions of the Stanley 1266. We have the 1266, the 1266A, and a pretty rare variation, the Stanley 1266ME. Stanley first offered these tapes in 1932, although all of these tapes are later versions. The 1266 and 1266ME are 2 1/8 inches in diameter with a 5/8 inch blade. The 1266A is slightly smaller at 2 inches in diameter and with a 1/2 inch blade. Stanley also produced a 1266E with an engineers rule, I have not been able to find that one yet. The 1266ME has a blade that is an engineer's rule on one side, and metric on the other. Thanks for looking😁😁😁
