Racine, Wisconsin: S.C. Johnson, Circa 1980s. Archive of 26 vintage wax-based die-cut stickers advertising S.C. Johnson products.
The S.C. Johnson company was founded in 1886 in Racine, Wisconsin, primarily selling wax for parquet flooring. The company would expand throughout the twentieth century, eventually departing from wax-based products in 1955 with the launch of Raid insecticide, accompanied over the next three years by a new suite of products, including Off! insect repellent, Pledge cleaner, and Glade air freshener. The company continues to operate today as one of the oldest family-owned businesses in the United States.
The stickers on offer here were likely created for distributors' use, and advertise a wide variety of Johnson products, including Agree shampoo and conditioner, Glade aerosol spray, Edge shaving gel, Off! insect repellent, Shout laundry spray, Befresh toilet bowl deodorizer, Scrunge sponge, and more. The archive also includes four sale signs for use during spring, summer, autumn, and winter.
