JPG, I did it without the Caution underlined, because it matched the photo. Do you want me to do a second version for you with the underline?

Recreated Caution Label for Greenie's

Post by mickyd »

You guys are the GREATEST. I couldn't wait to get home tonight. I knew that the illusive CAUTION label mystery text would be solved. Artwork was a real bonus!

Tom - Thanks for the recreation. It's PERFECT. Appreciate your effort. Dave - Thanks for providing the great pictures. They came out beautiful. JPG - Thanks for your impeccable proofing and sizing . Dusty - Thanks for getting JPG all riled up :D Good for his ticker!!

OK, so here's the next step. Wife had some clear adhesive Avery laser stock labels, 2x4-1/4". I'll steal a few sheets and will print some labels out tomorrow. If you want one, send me a PM with your mailing address and I'll mail one (or more) out to you. Once Goldie on is available for JPG, that will be included to. Make sure to tell me Goldie or Greenie.

Again, can't tell you guys how appreciative I am for your help. I say it again....this forum is AWESOME.

OK, here's a new PDF that has both versions of the Caution label. The Goldie one changed the kerning of the letters on the "CAUTION" and the line spacing on the body of the text as well as adding the underline...

FWIW: The Goldie I bought new in 1964 does not have (nor has it ever had) the "Caution Label". Was it supposed to be applied by the owner? Too long ago for me to remember.
