Production portfolios were used during the American Bank Note pre-production process. Each piece details the intricacies of the old fashioned cut-and-paste method in which the designs were developed. The proof was subsequently circulated amongst American Bank Note Company officials and the executives of the customer (In this case Chase Manhattan) for editing & approval. The markings from the process are evident on the layers of the proof and the distribution folder as detailed in the attached images. Once the approval and editing process was completed, the mass production of the certificate occurred for distribution to eventual shareholders.
