Really cool dial card on a 500
« on: December 18, 2018, 11:33:33 PM »
Just ran across this ‘56 WE 591 (500 sold to independents without Bell System markings).  Straight handset cord and awesome dial card.  I’ve never seen one like this before - looks great on the phone.  A bit expensive or I might have grabbed it - wait I don’t need another black 500......  ;)

That is a really cool dial card. If anybody on here knows how, please make a good cleaned up printable copy.

Some time ago I had software that I could use to do that.
Wish I still had it, I made some neat cards.
It looks as though the digits may have been rubber stamped.
It looks as though the line was a guide to set up the stamp on. But agree it's cool.
Edit: this is what I used before, but for newer systems cheaper too. http://www.printmaster.com
The version I had was super easy to make a circle, add a text box and size it to what I wanted. I used to do payphone instruction cards, for three slots up to single slots. I could import images I had in my computer, resize etc. It may be something to look at again.
But I wanted to let the rest of you know what and how to get it.

I used to use Photoshop a lot. Miss that program, must get it (and a few other draw programs) again.
