New "Old Looking" Batteries

New Eveready Energizer industrial ignition battery       New Eveready Energizer industrial ignition battery with label wrapper from old style Energizer

Make a new battery look old.
This is easy to do these days if you have a computer and a color printer.
Just purchace a 1 1/2 volt alkaline "Energizer" battery from your local Radio Shack store.
Most of the RS stores carry this battery. If not, try your local hardware store.

Down load the
Vintage Eveready battery wrapper

Open it with Windows Paint program (included with most of the Windows operating system programs)
and print it to your color printer. It should print out 6" x 8.25"

Cut it out, but leave one end uncut so you can roll the image back over .
Like the image below.

I use spray on contact cement, but you can use anything that works for you.

Here is another old label
Vintage Eveready Columbia gray-label battery wrapper
