Authentic Prints (The actual artifact!)

  • We sell antique prints as well as fine art reproductions of the maps in our collection. Select "Authentic Print" from the purchase options to purchase the real deal, an artifact produced years ago.  Authentic prints are available when we have them. The website will indicate "sold out" if the authentic print is no longer available. Fine art reproductions of every image in our collection are always available.
  • Lead time: Unframed authentic prints are typically ready for shipment or pickup within a few days of order placement. Some authentic prints listed on our website must be brought in from other dealers. In those cases, additional days are required to get those prints to us before shipping or pickup can take place.
Fine Art Prints / Reproductions
  • Printing: We print in-house to control all aspects of print quality and consistency.
  • Printers: We exclusively utilize Epson commercial-grade Ultrachrome printers and pigment inks.
  • Papers: We print onto Epson Premium and Ultra-premium matte-finish papers engineered for Epson Ultrachrome printers.
  • Paper Sizes / Prices:
Small 8 1/2" x 11" $14.95
Studio 11" x 14" $19.95
Medium 13" x 19" $29.95
Intermediate 18" x 24" $49.95
Large 24" x 34~35" $69.95
    • Quality: Our fine art prints are museum-quality, no-fade, color-stable, acid-free, and archival.
    • Layout: All images are printed as large as possible onto the selected paper size. The original proportions of the image are maintained. No stretching to fill the paper occurs. Given that the proportions of each image rarely matches that of the paper, there is always white space around the image. Images are centered onto the paper as much as possible.
    • Lead time: Unframed prints are typically ready for shipment or pickup within a few days of order placement.

    Framing

    • Fabrication: All of our frames are 100% made in Cambridge, Massachusetts USA. We have a longstanding relationship with a local fine art framer who exclusively produces all of our frames.
    • Types: We offer three types of framing. Scroll down for details about...
      Custom/Archival Framing
      Economy/Non-Archival Framing
      Studio/No Matting
      Medium/No Matting Framing
    • Why choose Custom/Archival framing? We recommend Custom/Archival frames when framing any authentic print. All authentic prints can fade when exposed to direct or indirect sunlight. Custom/Archival frames feature UV-resistant glazing to protect antique images from fading. Custom/Archival frames feature acid-free mat boards and backing boards that will not damage authentic prints. Store bought frames typically do not use UV-resistant glass nor acid-free materials. A Custom/Archival frame is the best way to protect and display an antique print for the ages.
    • Why choose Economy/Non-Archival framing? Economy/Non-Archival frames are perfect for our fine art reproductions. Since our reproductions are archival (made with archival inks and acid-free papers), UV-resistant glazing nor acid-free boards are required to protect the reproduction. Economy/Non-Archival frames offer a sensible price point and affordable way to bring a framed image into any space.
