Postcards

SHREDDED WHEAT POST CARDS

Shredded Wheat produced two specific types of advertising post cards. The most commonly collected are Foyer cards.  Foyer postcards were given out as free souvenirs to visitors of the Shredded Wheat factory in the foyer.of the plant, and visitors were encouraged to write notes to their friends describing their visit.  Many messages on used cards bear this out.

Non-Foyer post cards served many different purposes, from order forms for cookbooks to invitations and company notices of various sorts. I have separated these form the above cards to simplify the listings.  Many of these are interesting, but usually not as colorful and collectible as the foyer cards.

Some examples are shown below:  Click on the links above to access a detailed listing.
