Stock labels – Banner design

Amoung the huge variety of label designs that came out of Jamaica in the 70’s a few common stylistic themes tend to crop up time and again.

It’s clear that it was easier for a producer to select a standard design to make their releases more attractive rather than to have to design the whole thing themselves. It’s probably for this reason that the stock label designs emerged.

The colour part of the design was almost certainly printed at the same time as the title and label credits as blanks of the coloured label designs very rarely turn up, and the black print always seems to be the right way up in comparrison with the colour part.

The label pattern with a scroll/banner type effect at the top was in use for around three years between 1971 and 1973. Bunny Lee must have liked it as he used it alot.
