Video Store Membership

I never had my own membership card to a video store.  In high school I depended on other people's cards to rent movies and then in college I mainly went for the bargain bin $10 dvds.  In hindsight I feel like I missed out so I decided to make my own and get it laminated.  I gave it a touch of the fifties because of my love of diners and named it to reflect my love of b-movies and drive-in's from that era of the 40's and 50's.  The dates were random to add to the effect/era.  I could go all out and add textures and weathering to really sell it but I won't.  The address is actually the address of the video store we used to go to in Pennsylvania when I was growing up.  It was a mom and pop store owned by a friend of my dad's.  I think it has since become a pizza shop.  Enjoy.
