Luckies go to War- getting rid of the ugly green package with manufactured patriotism

Luckies go to War- getting rid of the ugly green package with manufactured patriotism | A Cultural History of Advertising | Scoop.it
Lucky Strike Green Goes to War carton insert card.

"The 1940's most successful advertising slogan, "Lucky Strike Green Has Gone to War!," was conceived by Mr. Hill while duck hunting on Monkey Island, North Carolina. Several days earlier Richard Boylan, head of purchasing for ATCo, had informed Hill that there was only a three months' supply of green ink available for printing Lucky Strike labels. Chromium, an element which is essential to solid green ink, was a war material in short supply. Boylan told Hill "Just like the soldiers, green ink has gone to war."

The green package had never appealed to women, and  here was a chance to get rid of it...did the green really go to war?  As if!

Did sales go up? You bet! 38%
