"Rough and Ready... Slow but Steady"
I'm sure you notice right away that this old timer has a familiar logo painted on the side of the door. And if you are a customer or are in the least bit familiar with my ordering system you will understand where the idea comes from... This Old Truck in many ways like This Old Cachetmaker is well described as "Rough, Ready, Slow, but Steady! Those waiting for their Emrick Cachet hand painted covers know full well about the "Slow" part!
Available on all four stamps in this issue.

These Guys Didn't Learn Their Lesson...
So they were Sent to the Jungle!
I had some addtional "Dora" Cancels and decided to put a "jungle" background behind the bad monkeys and move the type around a little bit... So now I have a second design for the "Evil Monkeys"!
2016 Chinese Lunar Year of the Fire Monkey
These guys were doing such a bad job the were FIRED!!!
This EmPrint Version of this design was created after I entered the original hand drawn and hand painted cover in the Contest/Challenge put on by the newly formed International Cover Collectors Association (ICCA) in April & May of 2016.
The Entry Cover won First Place!
To celebrate the victory I decided to print one EmPrint version of the Evil Monkeys for each of the Dues Paying Members of the ICCA. At the time there were 48 Members receiving a cover. I included 9 "Extras" to be given to the next nine people to join.
