Uncle Sam I Want You Poster
Uncle Sam Wants You poster. In one of the most famous and recognizable posters in the world, the Uncle Sam I Want You poster shows Uncle Sam pointing his finger at the viewer and telling them, 'I Want You For U.S. Army.' The phrase 'Nearest Recruiting Station' has a blank space below where an address for enlisting would be added. The 'Uncle Sam Wants You' figure originally appeared on the cover of the July 6, 1916, issue of Leslie's Weekly with a title of 'What Are You Doing for Preparedness?' Illustrator James Montgomery Flagg contributed a large number of images to support the WWI war effort. Because of the popularity of this image it was also used in WWII for recruiting. Our reproduction Uncle Sam Wants You poster is from a lithograph produced c. 1917.All Posters for Sale

About Our Paper
We use mould-made 100% cotton rag, acid-free archival papers or heavyweight Exhibition Gallery Canvas.
Paper sizes are in inches. If an image's dimensions don't exactly match the paper's dimensions there will be a wider margin on the narrowest side. The long edge on prints 34x47 and larger will vary depending on the dimensions of the photo and may be longer than the size listed.
All of our prints come with a margin: 8.5x11 and 11x17 prints have .50-inch margins; 19x13 prints have 1-inch margins; 22x17 prints have 1.5 inch margins; 30x24 Special Edition and 47x34 Magnum prints have 2-inch margins. Canvas prints have slightly wider margins for stretching.
