WHAT ARE CRATE LABELS?
Crate labels were originally intended to be applied to the ends/tops of produce-filled wooden crates. These wonderful works of art were created as a means of identifying and advertising a particular brand of produce. Fierce competition in the local markets meant that sellers had to find creative ways of attracting buyers to their particular produce – hence the need for captivating and enticing labels. Initiated in the 1890’s, the use of labels flourished until the 1950’s, when the preprinted and cheaper cardboard box was introduced. As a result, the need for labels diminished and they were left in packing houses, storage sheds, printer’s archives etc. for collectors, historians, & enthusiasts to later discover.
