PHOTO RESTORATION & NOVELTY ART SERVICES

WELCOME to Canovanograms.
We hope that among our services, products and free-bies, you will find something to go nuts about. We're nuts about ALL of it ...but then we're nuts anyway. Our keywords are entertainment and education.
Read on and let us give you a fuller picture of what we are and what we can offer you.
First a very brief history:
The very FIRST "canovanograms" were handmade greeting cards created by our founder jim vanhollebeke at age eight (way back in the early 50's!). They were usually for birthdays and targeted at older members of the Vanhollebeke family. These cards were somewhat crude with obvious and often ill-attempts at humor. It wasn't 'til the mid 70's when jim, now an adult, decided to give his unique salutations the moniker, CANO-VANOGRAM ( "can'o" for can of... and "vanogram" for Vanhollebeke-telegram.   Eventually the term was expanded to encompass ANYTHING we did or created. And when we started slapping price tags on the ones we called "products",  we decided to dress up the name with a CAPITOL "C". Today Canovanogram Industries Inc. is STILL known for it's trademark handmade cards and their crude but obvious ill-attempts at humor.
But now there's so much more ...and we want you to know this is all for YOU ...and we're just nuts about it!
 
Sincerely,
 
~jim vanhollebeke
founder & chief etc.

OUR UNIQUE BOOKS (See Page 4)

 CANOVAN PRODUCTS .....

Do you need a laugh?  Try our hilarious series of little humor books titled, TALES FROM MY VAULT by jim vanhollebeke.  The stories in these books are outrageous  ...and true too. We can't make this stuff up!! More book details can be found on page 4 (go to index at top left).  

Music lovers may want to order one of Jim's cassette or CD albums (yes, Jim can sing too!). Jim is an super Elvis fan and many of his songs have been played on the Ladyluck Elvis Tribute Online Radio Show!  Details on  cassettes and CDs can be found over at Page 3. 

Some of our older friends may be fans of those notorious EC Comics of the 1950's.  Y'know ...like ...Tales From The Crypt and MAD, the original comic books. Jim Vanhollebeke's EC PORTFOLIO  highlights his TRIBUTE to THIS legendary line with much of his artwork from his years of involvement with comic fandom back in the '60's (Yes , Jim is a pen& ink artist also!!).  Check out the portfolio story and product details on P. 5.

We have a couple other other products that, though not actually made by us, they certainly SHOULD have been! Check out the smallest JUKEBOXES in the world in our CANOVAN DIME STORE  ( Page 6).   They're the GINCHIEST!!
