To create this collage sheet I used dozens of different souvenir postcards and photographs of the Eiffel Tower circa 1889, high quality scans of flowers and birds, Hot air balloon engravings, a vintage ticket, love letters from the 1700s, and images from a Parisian 1850s book I own that has the most amazing engravings. I've added a lovely dark frame around each for a vintage, photographic feel.
Image size: 7/8 by 1 7/8 inches (.875 by 1.875 inches; 22.2 mm by 47.6 mm)
Emailed as a jpg link within 24 hours, this collage sheet is a high-resolution, 8.5x11-inch digital file that you can print again and again for your personal crafts or to make items to sell.

<<Frequently asked questions about piddix's digital collage sheets.>>
Q:: what is a digital collage sheet?
A:: it's an 8.5x11 inch .jpg file that will be emailed to you with high-resolution (300 dpi) images on it. You can then print out your file again and again at home or at a copy store using cardstock, photo paper, sticker paper, and more for personal crafts or to make items to sell.
Q:: when will I get my collage sheet?
A:: always within 24 hours; often much sooner. If you need something immediately, visit my instant download site: www.instantcollagesheets.com.
Q:: how does the copyright thing work?
A:: I refuse to use an image unless I am 100% confident that it is in the public domain in the U.S. or I personally own the copyright. I write letters to publishing houses and authors (all of which I have on file), pour through old copyright renewal notices, have a lawyer with whom I consult on a regular basis, and create my own original designs. A full description of how I determine copyrights is available on my blog:
Q:: what's the quality like?
A:: all of my images and collage sheets are 300 dots-per-inch, the perfect resolution for printing. I'm a bit of a perfectionist, so I can spend hours with my camera, scanner, Illustrator and PhotoShop restoring and perfecting each image. Check my feedback to see what other people are saying.
Q:: what can I do with these sheets? Can I make items to sell?
