In the Summer of 1946, Don Blanding released a line of greeting cards ROMANCE NOTES which were produced by the Castle Company of Los Angeles. The cards were printed in Black and white, and as an interesting advertising campaign twist, the cards were sold in conjunction with the radio program "Vagabond's Castle," which Blanding hosted.
