Design: A stylized sweeping 'S' defines the upper and lower segments. The label name, which is relatively small in size and light in weight, flows into the S shape. The burgundy and silver combination was popular in the 1950s.

History: Music business entrepreneurs Moe Asch and Herbert Harris were originally in partnership as Asch-Stinson. After they split up, Asch founded Disc Records and Harris launched the Stinson label.
