Stryker-Indigo Media: New York City (April 3, 2013) - In December 2011, Stryker-Indigo New York announced plans to establish publishing and documentary film operations in Hawaii beginning in 2013. In the sixteen months since the announcement, the company has been busy acquiring Hawaiian-themed ephemera artifacts, books, and films in an effort to create a permanent research and information archive. One of the most interesting aspects of this effort has been the acquisition of Hawaiian-themed postcards.
The history of postcards dates back to 1840 in England. However, not until 1873 did the first postcards appear in the United States when small numbers were produced by the Morgan Envelope Factory in Springfield, Massachusetts. Two decades later, the first commercially produced American cards appeared. Popular as a form of advertising, these early images were often idealized as to appeal to a broader audience. In some cases, these images were nothing short of art, highly prized among 19th century ephemera collectors.
In 1893, the first souvenir postcards were introduced at the World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago. They were an immediate success. Five years later, under pressure from publishers and the business community, the U.S. Congress passed the Private Mailing Card Act (May 19, 1898) allowing for the manufacturing and sale of souvenir postcards. As a result, hundreds of printers began mass-producing images of local landmarks and other themes in an attempt to capitalize on this new form of communication and regional promotion. That same year, hand-colorized postcards of Hawaii made their debut.
The concept of acquiring Hawaiian postcards doesn't seem all that complicated at first glance, until one realizes Hawaiian postcards have been in existence for 115 years with their unique images numbering in the tens of thousands.
In fact, since 1898, more than 200 separate companies have been active in the printing and marketing of Hawaiian postcards. Though the majority of these operations were or are small businesses based on Oahu, a number of larger U.S. and foreign print and publishing companies have also been active in the Hawaii postcard market.
Of these groups, the most famous and earliest Hawaiian companies have included the Island Curio Company of Honolulu and the Hilo Drug Company of Hilo, Hawaii. In terms of mainland North American companies, the Souvenir Post Card Company of New York, the Technor Brothers Inc., of Boston, and the Associated Screen News Limited of Montreal, Quebec were three of the better known and most effective.
First made popular by American soldiers stationed in the Pacific, these Hawaiian postcards often displayed images of island landscapes, historic buildings and beautiful Hawaiian maidens - creating an illusion or picture of a perfect paradise. Due to their beauty and popularity, many people held on to Hawaiian postcards as keepsakes or simply for their viewing value.
As a result, to this day, it is still possible for collectors to acquire many of the early postcard images of Hawaii for a modest price. The average postcard of this era (1898-1920) often sells from $5-$25 depending on the rarity and condition of the card.
Today, the Stryker-Indigo Collection numbers approximately 500 different cards. Individually, when viewed, many elicit barely a glance. However, when taken as a whole, or when organized by decade or era, only then are the full power of images revealed. For postcards are a snapshot in time - a window on the past seen through the eyes of the present. As such, postcards are a form of escape, of fantasy, and reflection of a time gone by.
The Stryker-Indigo collection is currently being archived and documented. There is no timeline for completion, and items will be added to the collection as they are acquired. Below is a partial list of recently acquired 1950s-1970s Hawaiian postcards, listed by printer and description, which are currently in the Stryker-Indigo collection.Curt Teich Co.

In this generation-defining self-help guide, a superstar blogger cuts through the crap to show us how to stop trying to be "positive" all the time so that we can truly become better, happier people.
For decades, we’ve been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. "F**k positivity," Mark Manson says. "Let’s be honest, shit is f**ked and we have to live with it." In his wildly popular Internet blog, Manson doesn’t sugarcoat or equivocate. He tells it like it is—a dose of raw, refreshing, honest truth that is sorely lacking today. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k is his antidote to the coddling, let’s-all-feel-good mindset that has infected modern society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up.
Manson makes the argument, backed both by academic research and well-timed poop jokes, that improving our lives hinges not on our ability to turn lemons into lemonade, but on learning to stomach lemons better. Human beings are flawed and limited—"not everybody can be extraordinary, there are winners and losers in society, and some of it is not fair or your fault." Manson advises us to get to know our limitations and accept them. Once we embrace our fears, faults, and uncertainties, once we stop running and avoiding and start confronting painful truths, we can begin to find the courage, perseverance, honesty, responsibility, curiosity, and forgiveness we seek.
There are only so many things we can give a f**k about so we need to figure out which ones really matter, Manson makes clear. While money is nice, caring about what you do with your life is better, because true wealth is about experience. A much-needed grab-you-by-the-shoulders-and-look-you-in-the-eye moment of real-talk, filled with entertaining stories and profane, ruthless humor, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k is a refreshing slap for a generation to help them lead contented, grounded lives.

one group of colors in the color wheel is associated with the sun, warmth and fire. these colors are called warm colors since they evoke warm feelings in people. yellow, red, orange and different shades of these colors are warm colors. the wavelengths of these colors are long and these are easily noticed, lively colors.
another group of colors in the color wheel, on the other hand, is considered to consist of cool colors. these colors leave a cold effect on people. green, blue, purple and shades of these colors are cool colors.
colors can cause mood changes, the feeling of warmth or coolness, altered perception of largeness or smallness in terms of volume as well as differences in perception of distances.
warm colors are at the forefront.
these are the colors of preference for calm, timid children of low energy.
(torrice & logrippo, 1989)
warm colors are preferred by preschool children.
cool colors on the other hand are usually in the background.
