The Licker

Here is proof that we have been into vintage way before it was fashionable! For as long as we can remember, we have been using our trusty Super Moistener whenever we have envelopes to seal. The Super Moistener, affectionately known around here as The Licker, was made by Better Packages, Inc. of Shelton, Connecticut, which, like us, is rooted in the past but still going strong in the 21st Century.

Just so it doesn’t feel left out, The Stapler has been The Licker’s trusty sidekick for many years. it is an Aceliner Model 502 made by the Ace Fastener Co. of Chicago, Illinois. We have one in black as well as one in beige. They are still available, but only in walnut.
