Here’s a bit of history for you! The purpose of these printouts could be many things. Perhaps they were for marketing, a reassurance to customers on the extreme attention to detail and craftsmanship put into every engine. If you’ve ever found yourself employed in a factory setting, you can imagine them pinned up in the breakroom or office to inspire daily quality performance from employees. They might have been pulled from an owner’s manual, which seems likely. Origination aside, enjoy this small glimpse into the factory life of an Avery employee. — Editor
