Studebaker Record Player Slip Mats

A friend from afar custom printed these one-of-a-kind record player (LP) slip mats. This type of print-on-demand work is tricky - getting the photo to transfer correctly onto the material - whether that be a t-shirt, metal, wood, paper, etc.

Medals and Memories - Studebaker

Studebaker, all-american. A touching story about WWII ...

"Then, a few days later, they heard Russians were marching up the road. He and Lt. Goman went out to meet them, figuring they were allies. But they did not get a warm welcome.

"Their guns were drawn, and we tried to explain we were Americans. I saw a Studebaker truck, and started yelling, Studebaker! American! Roosevelt!" LeSage remembered.

Finally, comprehension dawns, and everyone calmed down."

As always, thanks to our veterans.
