Fun Slide Advertising Memorabilia

Slide Advertising Memorabilia

During the process of cleaning house for a recent video/photo shoot at Slide headquarters, we came across a trove of old memorabilia dating all the way back to our company’s origins in the 60s and 70s. Included in these items were ads, posters, catalogs, product labels, magazine and newspaper articles.

Our marketing partner’s team archived, photographed, scanned and digitized these pieces. We thought it might be fun to share a few of these with our customers and offer you a glimpse of Slide’s history.

Slide Tap-It and No-Rust Posters

Product posters circa the 1960s. Note the original company name was Perc E. Harms Co. and later changed to Percy Harms Corporation. Even though Percy Harms was his actual name, he was worried that people might pronounce it as “Perky Harms”.

Slide Catalog Covers

A classic Percy Harms catalog cover and an ad showing our mission to be industry problem-solvers, which continues to be Slide’s goal in 2022.

Slide Product Labels and Packaging

Please make a note that Slide will not be processing or shipping orders on these dates. We’ll be back fully charged and ready to serve you on Monday, October 10.
