    Hi all,

    Does anyone know where I can purchase a vintage looking trade label for a FN shotgun case.

    I particuarly want a FN trade label opposed to a browning arms one.

    Any ideas ??

    Have tried Conneticut arms, but dont know where else to look.

    Ofcourse there may never have been exactly what I am looking for either ? I would have thought so... Any ideas who to call ??

    Thanks

    Simon

    What exactly is a "trade label"? Do you mean like a decal or sticker?

    They were typical referred to as 'makers labels' and were put on the inside of the lid of trunk cases.

    I found this lead - not sure if it will help or not, but it's a start.

    If you can't get it from Galazan, it's gonna be hard to find. You might try it on your inkjet printer with the fabric printer stuff. I did this one, and it turned out better than expected.

    Best...mike

    Not sure there ever was a FN label about, but would look the part in this vintage case.

    Still looking..
