How are the prints made?» The fine-art prints on Vintagraph are produced in the USA on large-format, commercial printers made by Hewlett Packard and Epson. We use archival inks recommended by the printer manufacturers to guarantee the highest-quality images.
What type of paper do you use?» Our prints are museum-quality, made using top-of-the-line, piano-size commercial Epson printers with 10-color Ultrachrome inks and premium 100% cotton rag, acid-free archival papers. Each print is individually inspected before shipping.

How are images shipped?
» Print orders are shipped by USPS First Class mail or Priority Mail. Because all images are custom printed, please allow 5-10 business days for your order to be placed in the mail. During the Christmas holiday we occasionally offer special, last-minute delivery options. Check the print order pages for details.
What are your rules for using images on other sites?» If you are a non-commercial blogger or web-publisher, please feel free to use our images along with a credit and link back to Vintagraph.com. Because we do put a lot of effort into restoring the images, we do ask that you purchase high-resolution versions for commercial use. Contact us directly to inquire about stock image fees.
Are hi-res versions of images for sale?» Yes. High-resolution versions of posters and images from Vintagraph and Shorpy are available as Tiffs to purchase for commercial use. Contact us directly regarding the purchase and download of digital images. Hi-res TIFFs are much larger than even the full-size jpegs used on this web site. File size ranges from 25 mb to over 200 mb. Our client list includes IBM, Sony Music, HarperCollins Publishing and Wells Fargo Bank.
What is your return policy?
» All custom frame orders are final and may not be returned. Let us know within 7 days if your order arrives damages and we will exchange the order.
