Archival Pigment Print
Our prints are made with the highest quality inks on the finest archival papers available. The size stated is the size of the paper; included is a minimum 1/4" border (often wider on 2 sides so the image isn't cropped) for ease of framing & handling.
We constantly scour our sources to find the gems - the vintage prints that we think will look great on your walls. Don't worry - we're just guessing. We haven't seen your walls. But they're probably a lot like our walls. Our goal is to keep a fresh collection of vintage artwork that you'll love. Our hope is that you'll come for a unique print and return because of the great experience.
We are confident that you will be thoroughly pleased with your order. If you have any problems or concerns, please let us know and we'll make it right.
Prints are carefully printed one at a time by our Printery and hand-packed (either flat or rolled, depending on size) then shipped via USPS from Rockford, IL.
Shipping to US/Canada is free for orders over $30 (and a flat $6 for smaller orders).
International shipping is only $12.
