Tiki Napkins

Napkins are one of my favorite areas of ephemera. Their inherent limitations — low cost, limited colors, un-print-friendly materials — generally pushed designers into a more simple, graphic design, with heavy use of logos. These fragile and inherently disposable items didn’t last as well as postcards, and can be a bit harder to come by. JonPez has posted some of his napkins on Tiki Central, and there are some real beauts, including an interesting napkin with a “napkin sketch” of the exterior of the restaurant on it.
