Advertising has been something we have done since ancient Egyptian times where steel carvings and papyrus was used. Romans used posters on walls for various events including gladiator fights. In 1440 advertising reached new standards as print advertising became affordable. This allowed businesses to reach more people than ever through advertisements in the newspaper and on fliers. Postcards were used in 1891 by Sears, who ran a direct marketing campaign that reached 8,000 potential customers.
Those who are interested in advertising and paper collectables are typically drawn to promotional products. These include souvenirs and household items. Letters, tickets, labels, greeting cards and stereopticon cards are also of great interest to collectors.
