Proud Of East Texas: David Jones

By Joan Hallmark

With a century-old printing press and the knowledge he's gathered in his twenty-nine years in engraving, David Jones has created a unique business making wooden post cards. As far as he knows,Jones is the only one in the business printing wooden post cards from engraving plates. His customers include some of the biggest tourist attractions including The Grand old Opry, New Orleans Audubon Zoo, Luckenbach, Texas and the King Ranch.

While some cards have etchings of locals or animals, there are a number of both Cajun and King Ranch Recipes.

Most people collect the cards as souvenirs of places visited, while others collect the recipes. The cards are really postcards and can be mailed for 64 cents. However they are used, David Jones just says he enjoys making them.
