Old School 4X5 Large Format Film Photography
Background flag was photographed separately, scanned high resolution into Adobe Photoshop, and then composited into Photoshop layers, cutout, blended and artistically distressed in Photoshop for this creative effect and American proud patriotic theme: "Made in USA" brand.
The American-owned company who manufactured this quality tool apparently went out of business and its American jobs and manufacturing shipped overseas to foreign workers.
