What does toning, foxing, etc. refer to in the description box?
All paper deteriorates with age. Toning is the slight copper or
rust color paper will display as a result of oxidation due to age.
Foxing is a wrinkling effect also inherent as a result of age. See
our grading page for complete details.
I have a large collection of vintage advertising literature. Do
you purchase collections?
We have tens of thousands of vintage print ads waiting
to be uploaded to our site. For this reason, we are not purchasing
for resale at the moment.
Q. Can I purchase the classic TV Commercials you have featured on
We have presented the classic TV Commercials section as
an historical showcase only. The clips are not for sale, however,
you can download all the clips to your computer, blog or website
free of charge. Simply click on the appropriate link at the bottom
of each commercial page. Thousands more vintage clips can be accessed
Q. Do you have this particular make/model automobile
in another color? My car is blue, not white.
The short answer to this is probably, no. We cannot re-create an
original print since the manufacturer chose to highlight a particular
model, color scheme, etc. Most advertisements for automobiles would
showcase a particular model, make, engine size etc. and this would
apply to the entire model line. Rarely would different color schemes
be used for a particular model in a given year or campaign.
Do you take requests?
We maintain a locator
to help serious collectors find their desired advertisement. Our
search fee is fixed at $50.00US.
Why is your locator service so expensive?
Many individuals contact us to locate a particular print and then
never follow through with the purchase. Before we will undertake
the time consuming task of locating a print for a potential buyer,
we must be certain the request is legitimate and the buyer has every
intention of following through with a purchase. For more information,
please view our locator search info
What happens if I am unhappy with my purchase?
We offer a full refund minus actual shipping charges for any purchase.
See more about our 100% money-back
for details and conditions. Locator service fees are non-refundable.
The fee is charged to cover costs of time and effort undertaken
to locate your print.
Why are many of your sold ads left on site?
Our ultimate goal in creating this site is to highlight the incredible
talent and art design graphic work that existed in the last century.
Illustrators and artists were the main driving force behind the
print advertising medium throughout the middle of the 20th century.
Our principle mission is for this site to serve the internet public
as a resource archival center in memory of a unique and forgotten
