The Card Seed Company was established in Fredonia, New York, in 1908. They were in business only for a few short years, research shows they went out of business in the 1920’s. Based on the printing company, the dates and name changes, these packets can be dated with some certainty in the 1920’s.
Genesee Valley Lithographic Company was founded in 1912 in Rochester, NY by Herman J. Meyering. They were one of the very early printers of antique seed packets and printed for Card Seed Co, Burts Seeds and many others who formed the fast growing agricultural industry in Western New York. In the mid-1940’s the name was changed to Hammer Lithograph when Walter Hammer took over the business. The company is still in business today but it’s now known as Hammer Packaging.
