    Default KoAloha through the years

    Hi all, seeking information on the different labels used across their 25-yr history. Are there any websites with this info? I know there have been a quite a few changes but can't seem to find a resource. Thanks in advance, UU!

    Here is a photo of my early 1997 soprano. When I purchased, some in the thread of the previous owner were wondering about the label because it looked like it was done on a home computer. Well, I have come to learn that Pops is pretty good artist and he does many logos by hand. I sent the image to Pops and here was his reply, "The person is correct in observing that the sticker seems hand made because I literally made many stickers by hand until I found a printing company to print our stickers."

    Thanks for sharing! Wish there was a KoAloha resource like the one for Kamaka, especially since the brand has gone through so many changes with the labels.

    I hope they have someone at KoAloha who takes care of their history.
    Too many ukes, but I can't stop buying!

    By May 2007 they were using the new square label.
    Anyone have an earlier Koaloha with this label or a later one with the crown label?
    Maybe we can figure out when they changed labels.
