When Roger Sterling’s daughter, Margaret, needed wedding invitations in 1963, they called me – in 2009. I know it seems crazy but…..
OK. I will admit that the prop master, Gay Parello (who by the way is totally cool and very on top of the look, as you would have to be to work on a demanding period show like Mad Men) came to Tiny Pine Press because she needed to have a type of printing that was authentic to the period (letterpress) in a type that was of the period (Nuptial Script). AND they needed it FAST. I think I turned this project around in 3 days. I was more than pleased to help out one of my very favorite television shows!
In the episode they talk about bells, and silver, and maybe blue – I can’t remember – but at the end of the day they didn’t show anything but the type. You will have to take my word for it that the invitations actually did have bells and silver and there were three different versions of them.
But I will take the airtime, with or without those silly bells!
