Royal Canadian Mounted Police

RCMP, now in color!

This is a “Holografix” postcard by Impact Impressions of Markham, Ontario. The card doesn’t actually look quite like the picture; the odd colors and the darkness are due to the scanner reflecting off of the lenticular surface of the Mountie pictured (similar to the hologram on your credit card). The results were even worse when I tried to take an actual photo of the card. The card is about 4″ by 6-3/8″, making it a little bigger than the typical Continental postcard size of 4″ by 6″ (and causing the end of it to stick out of the archival sleeves that I use to protect my cards.

Impact Impressions is listed in several online business directories, but they seem to have let their website go by the wayside.

I bought this card during a trip to the Maritime provinces in 2002.
