The Wayback View - Printshop business cards
A few interesting business cards used by printers back in the day.
Today, "Steam Power" is sometimes used to signify an old-fashioned analog workflow. The slogan: "Prices to Suit the Times" perhaps indicates that the pricing goes up and down with the stock market.
Thompson had another steam powered printshop. No need to mention the city where it was located though.
A not very novel way to promote a novelty printer.
At the turn of the 19th Century towns were small enough that there was no need to give the actual address on the business card. Everyone knew where you did business.
If you need packaging for fruit, vegetables, and tigers then this is the printer for you.
