Hello Graflex enthusiasts! I'm Dan, new to the forum, but liking the looks so far.

I'm currently building a hardcase box for my Crown Graphic and I want to adorn the finished piece with some stickers and art which should be contemporary to the Graflex timeline.

To get a better idea what I'm looking for look at these images:

So like those, but I need good high resolution photographs taken straight on (not from an angle) of the front of the boxes. Basically the bigger size and clarity the better. If you have a scanner and some time I would appreciate even getting high resolution scans if you can. All the images I've found have been too low resolution to be able to adequately recreate the logos and art in Photoshop or Illustrator.

I would even be interested in small odds and ends, like original inventory labels or tags which might be on a box, and things like that. I'm essentially going to use it to make the case look older and used, instead of just a newly built case. I want it to have some history, even if it's one chiefly created by myself.

I know this is a lot to ask for, anywhere, especially as a new user, but any help would be greatly appreciated, and I promise to post images of the finished case when it's done

if there an email listed i could send you some cover tiffs of service manuals that have the G man logo and or a B&W photo of the piece of equipment covered. 600 dpi scans of factory originals, not reprints or photo copies.

Here are the images which 45PSS were gracious enough to share with me, figure I would post them up here as they might come in use for someone else in the future.

Still, if anyone has any original boxes I would very much appreciate some high resolution images of them.
