NOTE: The image used for this Greeting Card was drawn by illustrator James T Berryman and appeared in a book titled BEGINNERS BOOK OF MODEL AIRPLANES (They Fly) authored by Carl H. Claudy, first published in 1930. This illustration along with many others of his same excellent quality and style, grace this book. This particular illustration can be found on page 128 of this book which contributes to an excellent eight page chapter devoted to building a model airplane typical of the period shown in the illustration called The S.S.V.T or Single-Stick-V-Tail model. Consisting of duel propellers, this type of model aircraft is also called a Twin Pusher, which were popular up until “Tractor” Models (using a single propeller) started winning Model Airplane Contests in the early 1930s.
James was the Son of Clifford Barryman who together produced an amazing amount of pollical cartoons a sampling of which can be found at this website:
Instructions and helpful tips on how best to recreate this vintage looking card:
Print this Greeting Card on Ivory Card Stock. Use a ball point pen tip (no ink!) to score the fold line, then place a scrap of paper over fold & burnish with the back of a flat plastic ruler. Now trim using the outer tick marks. Wishing you the best & have a Happy New Year !!!
I you are wanting to do a sizeable quantity, you may want to have them printed up at a “Local printing service near me.” Note: If you do a Google search using these exact words (Copy and Paste) you will find that as a result you would have generated a local list of places like Staples, FedEx, UPS Store, etc.
You will need to Download the PDF File and most likely copy it to a flash drive like the one pictured at left. If you are unfamiliar with this technology, here is a helpful link: What is a Flash Drive? Also realize that the associates working at these stores are a wealth of information and are eager to help.
