The front of the trade card begins at the top with the title "Tip-Top Mark It Guide" written in white lettering against a red background and is followed by slots to adjust to make a shopping list. Moving a marker to the right indicates that it needs to be purchased. Some of the items include bacon, butter, cereal, cheese, eggs, fish, juices, salt, spices and tea. At the bottom, the phrase "Enriched Tip-Top is Better Bread" is written in white lettering against a blue background. In the center, there is a loaf of bread in a red, white and blue package. The back of the trade card is a plain brown color.
