Frequently Asked Questions

Are these posters genuine?

Our posters are all guaranteed originals, we never sell reproductions. They are 50-100 years old, some are even older.

Why are these posters expensive?

Unlike modern and reproduction posters, very few genuine vintage advertising posters have survived for more than fifty years. Posters are priced according to rarity, condition, and aesthetic appeal.

How many copies do you have?

We typically only have one copy of each poster, as they are rare. Occasionally we can source additional copies. However, we do have multiple copies of many of our labels.

What condition are these posters?

Most of our posters are in good condition, but do ask us and we can explain if there is any damage or restoration.

Are these posters linen-backed?

All of our large posters are “linen-backed” using archival and acid-free materials and methods. We use Japanese tissue and fine linen or cotton canvas. This helps preserve and protect posters, making them easier to handle, store and ship. Generally, small posters can be framed as they are.

In some cases, posters are described as not being linen-backed. We can arrange for posters to be linen-backed for you, contact us to find out how much it will cost and how long it will take.

Can you deliver / ship to my address?

We use UPS or an equivalent courier service to deliver posters and large items to most international locations. We use Royal Mail to deliver labels internationally and for all UK deliveries. A signature will be required on delivery.

When will I receive my order?

We usually dispatch orders within two working days of payment receipt into our account.

Royal Mail usually delivers the following working day. UPS deliveries can take 2 – 5 working days depending on your location. Please let us know if you would like a tracking number.
