About 40 years ago I found a printing company in rural upstate New York that had closed in the early 1960s, and I bought all the "over runs". Everything had been put away in wooden boxes and kept dry. The printing company specialized in producing wall calendars, and only printed with the old style "Stone-Litho Letterpress" system. These are 100% original to the 1940s and 1950s, not modern copies. These 20 prints are a sampling of what I found and still have in inventory. Sizes vary from about 6" X 5.5" to about 3.25" X 2.5".
DEALERS - consider this: For many years I bought small wall calendars with bucolic rural scenes or simple general scenes. I would remove those pictures and replace them with these pin-up prints that match the timeframe of the calendar. I never had any problem selling these pin-up calendars for 5 to 10 times more, while the ordinary calendars simply didn't sell. To paraphrase a well-known insurance company: "5 minutes can get you a lot more money in sales!"
I'll do the math for you: You get 20 original letterpress pin-up prints, many by well-known artists, for less than $4 each, including shipping. You will be hard-pressed to find a single original print anywhere close to that price, and even poor quality Asian-made digital copies sell for more.
Price includes free shipping in the USA 48 states only.
Please note that because of my cheap price, I am not able to accept lower offers. I can offer these on feebay and sell 'em all day long, but I don't like feebay!
