 Velvatone Cachet


#45

Velvatone cachets were produced by August W. Dargis. The design is applied by a silk-screen printing process. Before the ink dries, a "flocking" material is added, which gives the design a "fuzzy" look and feel. Dargis produced his first Velvatone cachet in 1951, and continued to make them until shortly before his death in 2001 at age 87.
