Are this link of interest?
I was just told about it, a dial card maker page: https://bre.is/s0ctxJalZ
If not relevant please delete.

If it would allow you to print on 2 lines, it would be nice!

I have one that came off a Leich made AE80 telephone.  The phone was made in 1957 and, as I understand it, the first year for the area code printed on the card.

Very cool! Thatís my area code!
805 area code is (was) mostly Pacific Bell,  General Telephone had Santa Barbara county and a few small exchanges in rural areas in neighboring counties. If I am remembering correctly, 805 used to stretch from Monterey, CA all the way south to Ventura, CA  including my (Pacific Bell) county of San Luis Obispo and east to Kern and Kings counties.
I would love to know where that phone came from.

I bought the phone on eBay from someone in Chico, California about four years ago.  Is that even close to the 805 area code?

Nope, Chico is 350-400 miles north of me, different area code.
That is a cool dial card youíve got, thanks for sharing!

According to area-codes.com that prefix is in Oxnard, Ventura county.

I have quite a few of the General Telephone dial cards with area code 213 (Los Angeles).
Small is 1 1/2 ", larger is 1 13/16"
