Ad History, Print Paper Space


Identify how features/advertisements in the print paper space has changed over the last 100-120 years, by pulling ad archives and old advertisements over time.

Early Findings

  • Searching for stationary yielded results of ads from print paper company The American Stationary Company , as well as 400 other vintage ads (whereas searching for 'paper' primarily yields toilet paper ads).
  • This directory allows users to search by subject matter, and specifically sort by decade, which would allow us to provide you ads that span a range of dates.
  • Ad Flip offers an archive of print ads from the last six decades.
  • Ad Flip is categorical, searchable, and sorted by year.
