Introductory notes:
The basic idea of a gramophone postcard is to glue a single sided miniature disc record onto a postcard and punch a center hole through both card and disc. For further details see the exploratory history of the phono postcard

Singola:
This company had their business address at Kaiserin Augusta Allee 3, Berlin W.87. They were best known  for single-sided 20 cm diameter discs made of coated cardboard. The reverse side had room for photographs and other pertinent printed The discs used Clausophon and/or Pallas masters. Singola probably had an agreement with the Durium Products Corporation NY, to use their formula for the records (a trade-mark for „Durium“ was applied for in November 1930, and granted in January 1931).

Singola Schallplatten-Postkarten:
As a sideline Singola also produced phono postcards. Like their English competitors Tuck they glued brownish or black plastic discs onto illustrated postcards, thereby unfortunately obscuring the images; but unlike Tuck's  the pictures on Singola cards sometimes related to the titles. The mini-discs mostly have a -B suffix and may have been produced by Bachaphon. There are no catalog, order or series numbers. Details on titles are sometimes printed on the reverse side Singola marketed the postcards on their own behalf, but also supplied customers such as F. Marxen.

F. Marxen
F. Marxen operated a publishing house at the city of Mainz, located on the banks of the river Rhine. In order to cater for the tourist trade Marxen printed a set of five postcards of their own design, all showing local views. From the Berlin based Singola copany they ordered the dark brown, opaque miniature gramophone discs which were pasted on top of the cards. All five cards feature Rhine- and drinking-songs performed by one Willy Barth with piano accompaniment. There are no catalog, order or series numbers.
