A stamp from the past.
I read something online that JWT-Atlanta was going out of business and was ebay-ing off a lot of the relics, furniture and artifacts of its office. I bid $10 for this approval stamp and paid another $5.50 for shipping.
Believe it or not, I have fond memories of these stamps. There was a decorum, ceremony and sense of accomplishment when you signed one. You were getting an ad approved.
Today, I think, we have less ceremony about getting something out of the office and "live." Maybe that's because the volume of online work is so great we don't cherish each piece we produce. Maybe we're all just more jaded today.
In any event, I own this stamp now. And I'm bringing it to work tomorrow.
