1938 White & Wyckoff Greeting Cards

White & Wyckoff, a manufacturer of specialty paper products in Holyoke, MA, produced a series of Snow White greeting cards in 1938. The company employed their own staff of artists. The cards are copyrighted Walt Disney Enterprises, and each is numbered. Bi-fold design; measure 5.5" x 4.25" when closed. Most are birthday greetings with a couple 'get-well soon' cards too.

    1. Old tradition of a "birthday spanking"...one slap for every year since your birth.

    2. I am glad this old tradition is not international ... At my age ... it would hurt and the spanker would get quite ... exhausted! ;-)

  2. I knew about the Birthday spanking tradition. :)

    These cards are super cool. Slightly haunting (The one about the medicine makes me think about the cough syrup tragedies of about 1938, etc.), but cool!

  3. I'm thinking about the "Snow White" products that were released throughout the years, and, with a few exceptions (mostly dolls....LOL!), the products from 1937 / 1938 were the truly clever, cool ones!

    1. I agree. They went all out back then to come up with some truly unique and unusual Snow White things.
