Cannery Store Feature: 50% Off Framed Salmon Can Label Prints

One can learn significant details about Canadian history from the design of a salmon can label. The BC coast’s salmon can label designs¬†over the past¬†century¬†were mainly geared toward their overseas market so iconic images of British Columbia and Canada were used. As there was not much difference in content from one can of salmon¬†to another, selling the product became about the packaging. Over the past century, the label designs reflect their social contexts , much like a cereal box may illustrate¬†today’s famous¬†NHL stars. In a similar vein, the can labels over the past century have¬†highlighted what was important to the consumer.

The Gulf of Georgia Cannery has collected an array of original labels representing over a century of designs. A select few have been replicated and made into framed prints, mugs and t-shirts available in the Cannery Store. The framed prints consist of labels from the 1930s to the 1950s, but there are a few prints from the turn of the century. Presently, the framed salmon can label prints are selling at a 50% off their regular price; get them while supplies last.

We are carrying prints of the following brands: Victory Brand, Searchlight Brand, Ally brand, Fraser River Brand, and My Choice Brand.
