LIFE Magazine was the experimental playground of advertising executives. It was here that they tried different approaches to ads, such as this 1963 Schick razor ad. Upon order, this advertisement will be painstakingly extracted from the original edition in which it appears and carefully framed and packaged for delivery.
It was the late nineteenth century that American essayist and philosopher Ralph Waldo Emerson coined the phrase, "Build a better mousetrap, and the world will beat a path to your door." A hundred years later, Schick dusted off the saying to support their claimed that they had invented a "better" razor. Very cutting-edge stuff!
This ad will look amazing in any home, an office, dormitory -- or in your bathroom! Since the ad is the original from an authentic and rare LIFE Magazine, you can rest assured of its unique value! This is a perfect birthday, holiday, Father’s Day or Mother’s Day gift! Personalize this gift by including a certificate of authenticity with your special message.
The LIFE Magazine ad itself measures approximately 10.5″ x 13.5″ and it surrounded by a white professional framing mat cut to this ad’s specifications. The total area of the advertisement and the mat measures 15.75” x 19.7” and looks fantastic. The handsome and contemporary dark-brown frame itself is a high-quality medium-density fiberboard (MDF) with shatterproof plexiglass.
As an ad taken from an original magazine from the stated date, the ad may show signs of aging. As a collector’s item, all sales are final and returns are not accepted.
