The front of the poster is red with the title in black and white. The U and S in Uncle Sam are decorative letters with stars and stripes. A large hand with a stars and stripes cuff is on the right holding a pen to write OK in white. The large Majestic Ranges logo is at the bottom. The back is white with "Maritime 'M' Pennant Awarded to Majestic for Outstanding Production Achievement in the Manufacture of Ranges" in black and red print. Red stars surround a flag pole with Victory and "M" pennants. A promotion about the company receiving this honor is at the bottom. Opening first fold promotes three generations of Majestic Ranges in white lettering on a black background at the top. Below are red, pink and white panels which tell about Majestic Ranges Before the War, with a black-and-white drawing of a range, Under Wartime Restrictions and NOW, IT'S BACK! The fully opened poster is red, black and white with a large drawing of the Majestic Range in the middle with six black arrows on either side listing the pre-war features that are still included in the "Genuine Pre-War Model Majestic Stylined Range with added beauty and modern treatment -- and still selling at amazingly low pre-war prices!"
