The original poster was printed on smooth white stock and measures approximately 11⅞″ x 24¼″. The stock used to print the originals has a fine vertical pattern and there will be substantial red ink on the reverse, especially in the area of the two flowers at the top of the poster.
The second print poster was printed on a porous stock similar to vellum, and measures approximately 11⅞″ x 24″. Second print posters do not have the reverse inking that is present on the originals.
The third print poster was printed on uncoated index stock and measures approximately 11⅞″ x 24¼″.
The original handbill comes in two types; both measure approximately 4¼″ x 8¼″:
The Type A handbill is printed on thin (.0055″) paper. The words “In Advance: $3.00” and “At the Door $3.50” appear in white, reversed out of the printed blue background.
The Type B handbill is printed on thicker (.0080″) paper. The words “In Advance: $3.00” and “At the Door $3.50” are printed in blue ink on a white background.
The postcard was printed concurrent with the second print poster and comes in two sizes: 4″ x 8¼″ and 4″ x 7¾″.
