The postcard was produced by the Thomas Dexter Press which operated between 1934-1980 out of West Nyack, New York. They printed a wide variety of postcards using processes such as linens and photochromes. Dexter was the inventor of gang printing, a process where multiple printing jobs can be printed on one sheet. This process saved time and money. The company merged with MWM Color Press in 1980 to become MWM Dexter, and they moved to Aurora, Missouri.
