“I Take Up My Pen”: Colorado Mission, 1902

  1. Ardis, you’ve perhaps already addressed this, but it seems that the design of the stationery was left up to local leaders. Correct? I wonder if this every created any problems.

  2. I happened to be in downtown Denver today and snapped some pix of what is at that address. I’ll send to you when I get home.

  3. Gary, yes, it was entirely the decision of whoever happened to need new stationery. They obviously borrowed cuts (like the Salt Lake Temple, and occasionally others) from each other, but there was no concept of branding. Other than occasional ugliness (!), I’m not aware of any problems.

    That will be fun, Coffinberry!

  4. When I see some church marquees I’m glad that we don’t have them. Imagine if it were part of the ward program coordinator’s calling, and what they could put on them! It’s a different time. Smiley faces and stretched word plays.
