Florida Memory has launched a new collection of citrus fruit crate labels. From the collection page: “Most of the labels in this collection advertise citrus fruits, but corn, celery, cucumbers, cabbage, avocados and other fruits and vegetables are also represented. The labels range in size from the standard 9-inch square label that was placed at the indented end of a wooden shipping crate, to the 6-inch square and 3-by-9-inch labels that were used for half boxes and gift boxes.” There are over 600 labels in the collection. If you’re interested in advertising / graphic design, take a glance.
