Riting Before Texting
Before Instagram, photo albums required considerable manual labor to keep fresh and current. There were various ways, but one of the most popular was a tracing method, in this case known as Rite-a-Title. You could “Write a Title in a brilliant, permanent white without pen or ink” and “Decorate snapshots with humorous sketches.”
For photo albums: Hold Rite-a-Title firmly to prevent slipping. Write, print or trace with firm, even pressure. Use sharp pencil or stylus. Then clean with soft cloth.
Rite-a-Title can even be used for movie titles with their special “Titling Outfit.”
