Color print advertisement for screening made from Saran, the trade name for polyvinylidene chloride, which can be formed into monofilaments or a thin plastic film. The advertisement shows a smiling woman overlaid by woven screen fabric, which appears to be cut to reveal the woman's face. The accompanying text describes the benefits of screen made with Saran monofilaments. The text notes that Dow does not produce finished products, but does supply manufacturers with the raw material of Saran. This advertisement appeared on page 47 of the May 26, 1945 edition of The Saturday Evening Post.
