This category includes packaging for products in basically any material other than metal, which is in the tins category because there are enough of them to be their own category. Packaging for products needed to be flashy because before mass media like TV it was very difficult for a manufacturer to build a brand image that was nationally recognized. Most people had regional or personal reasons for selecting a product. The best way to get someone to pick up your product in a country store or shop was to have a package that would catch their eyes and be appealing.
Packages in this category include paper boxes and packs, wood boxes, cloth bags, and several other types of materials. The advertising on these items are usually applied paper labels, but some items will be lithographed or painted.
