Piedmont Label Company

Bedford
The Piedmont Label Co started up in 1919 and is STILL printing labels!
Found an interesting story HERE on Piedmont and the history of canning and labels.
The sun was relentless on this day...not matter what I was trying to get a picture of, there was that blinding sun right in the way!

Wishing you all a Happy Thanksgiving!

  3. Surprising that an industry like this is still in operation. The sign in your photo looks old. The antique labels they produced are wonderful. Our can labels today are so bland in comparison. Thank you for having the link to the history.

  6. This is a new one to me. Their labels are stunning! Art in themselves. Glad this is still a working factory and still in production.
