In my quest for the most interesting coupons, I discovered something - that before about 1963, the coupons as we know them didn't exist. Isn't that odd?
I myself am an avid coupon-clipper. Brian and I still get the Sunday paper (for more reasons than just the coupons) but I also get a lot of mine online by signing up for companies' newsletters and money-saving offers (like General Mills, Bisquick, Proctor & Gamble, Betty Crocker, Campbell's, etc.).
If you're interested in seeing or reading more about vintage coupons or just old logos, here are a few of my favorite places to find fun artefacts:
Different but the Same: a fantastic blog whereby a comparison is made with the old vs. new logo. For example, Bounce fabric softener was recently featured. What's more, you can vote on your favorite. I almost ALWAYS vote for the old logo of any given product (surprise, surprise!).
Clip and Save: If you're on Flickr (and you really should be if you're not!), join this fantastic group! I'm astounded at all of the amazing coupons that exist. I also get a kick out of the odd amounts - 7 cents off, 12 cents off, etc.
And of course, I love using coupons in my artwork! Some of those older beauts may have to wait, though - I'm not sure if I can tear into those just yet! :D
