    I would like to try my hand at making N scale wrapped lumber loads. In particular from the late 60's thru the 70'. Weyerhaeuser, Boise Cascade and others are examples.
    I'm having a heck of a time finding artwork on the web that can be used.
    Would anyone be able to point me in the right direction? I've been all over YouTube looking at videos on how to make the loads and none have suggested sites to download artwork. Others have or are making them, I would like to also.

    For many logos there may not be downloads readily available, due to trademark issues.

    I've taken that into account.
    If it makes a difference I'm making them for personal use not for sale.
    With my luck though...

    check out Jaeger Products.

    p.s. If all else fails you could take one of the HO scale products and reduce the artwork to N scale.

    Great idea seeing as he has little to no N scale available.
    I'd still like to learn how to make my own though.

    Perseverance has paid off. I have been able to find several examples of logos. They seem to be representative of more modern types. I mentioned that I was looking for 60's-70's examples which I now realize may not have existed then. I do remember seeing them though in the late seventies.
    I've even successfully printed off some loads in N scale. Still practicing.
