° 21.10.1841. "Office supplies, manufacturer of registers and notebooks". The initials or logo "D.V.D." on many picture postcards point to Van Dantzig branching out into the new field of collotype publishing for postcards, initially bought in from Germany before he set up as a printer on his own account. Postcards were supplied to publishers in many localities, early ones including Dupagne - Counet in Namur, 1902 ca, Ch. Lemye - Hayot in Beauraing, recorded as having ordered a series of 18 cards in 1901, and Veuve Engel - Lievens in Spa, also in 1901.
