For the antique page we use an 8 color professional printer. The quality is exceptional, and the colors are more vivid than we could have imagined.

• Important notice:

With antique book pages the brightness of the printed image will depend on the age of the page. The more yellowing the less brightness. The images on the computer screen may appear more or less vivid than the actual finished product. However, we try our best to portray the image as close to the actual page as possible. We are now offering our prints on white linen paper and matte photo paper without the page background for the same low price as the antique pages. If you would like to have your order printed on paper please contact us.

• We use a professional 8 color printing process to create our book page prints. The quality is exceptional, our process gives greater clarity and richer colors than an ordinary inkjet or laser printer.

We are now offering Canvas Prints.

• Canvas and Fine Art prints are printed with a 12-color pigment ink printer system for the widest color gamut. We use archival grade inks that have amazing colors and will resist fading.

• Frames and Mats NOT included, they are for illustration purposes only and are not available for purchase.

Now I'd like to share a lovely note from a recipient of one of our prints.

Dear friends at Pages of Ages,
A thoughtful friend gave me a wonderful print from your Etsy shop. She knows I love monkeys, and the print was of lion tailed macaques. I had seen the print in your shop and "hearted" it..... and when I received it as a gift, I couldn't wait to have it mounted and framed! Just had to tell you, this is such a magnificent piece of art! The print is amazing, such detail and I love that you can see through the image to read the wonderful page from the old dictionary! What a spectacular way to put to good use a book no longer suitable for the bookshelf. What a lovely way to help save the planet!
Just wanted to be sure you knew how adorable and interesting I find your product.
Thank you.
A.O. from MN
