Vintage Return of the Jedi Looseleaf Foil Reinforcements by Butterfly Originals

March 21, 2011

I’ll have to admit that it took me a little while to even remember what looseleaf reinforcements were. For those of you born in the digital age, these are little stickers with pre-punched holes in them. You would put them on sheets of looseleaf notebook paper so the holes in the stickers matched up with the holes in the paper, making it harder for you to accidentally rip the holes out. I vaguely remember using some plain white circular reinforcements when I was a kid, but never anything like this. They seem a bit too big and irregularly shaped to really be practical, but maybe I shouldn’t analyze them too hard. They’re printed on very shiny silver foil, which makes it a bit difficult to take a picture of them, but they are kind of attractive.

They managed to misspell a couple of the names: “Jabba the Hut” and “Millenium Falcon.” “Darth’s Tie Fighter” and “Galactic Emperor” also sound a little odd to me. And I don’t think Luke ever wore a bright red outfit like that… In any case, these were made by Butterfly Originals, who also made the excellent erasers in the shapes of Jabba’s Palace characters.
