Announcement    New Prints every Wednesday and / or Friday at 1:00 pm CST! (Good Lord Willing!)
A FREEBIE WITH EVERY ORDER!

Our mission is to share and strengthen the Faith using beautiful Catholic art!

Beauty is a facet of God and can draw people closer to Him and His Church. It can convey the warmth and truth of our Catholic tradition in ways other things cannot.

“In order to communicate the message entrusted to her by Christ, the Church needs art.” St. Pope John Paul II

Surrounding yourself with Catholic art helps your faith life. I rotate pieces in my home to keep things fresh.

Our unique Catholic fine art prints and photo restorations are usually exclusive to us! We are the only source in the world for about 80% of these vintage Catholic prints.

These are great First Communion or Confirmation gifts, or for other occasions, like Christmas, birthdays, and Catholic weddings. Or just to bring beauty to your own walls!

You might also be interested in my original Catholic art and jewelry! I love painting Jesus, Mary, and the Saints! I paint all the pictures, and I hand-make all the charms. www.Etsy.com/shop/TreeOfHeaven.

Also we have a new Catholic Quote shop where we pair actual genuine Catholic Quotes (so much out there that claims to be Catholic is not!) with my Catholic art or vintage Catholic art! Get some true inspiration instead of misleading new age truisms!

Treasures of Catholic Art

I am not new to Etsy, as I am a Catholic artist who's had a shop, TreeOfHeaven, since 2009. I paint all the artwork which I use in that shop, and I hand-make all the jewelry. But I have come upon so many beautiful images from our Catholic heritage, so many hidden treasures, which I want to use in my glass-and-solder medals and to offer as prints. The birth of ClassicCatholic!

John and I live in the beautiful diocese of Lincoln, Nebraska, and John, a former college English instructor, helps me with my shops. Some of our adult children help out too!

Thanks!
Sue

Frequently asked questions

Are your items in copyright?

Yes, our restoration work is copyrighted, hence the whole new image. We are careful that the original art work or photography that we are restoring is out-of-copyright and in the public domain.

Our descriptive text is also copyrighted.

Where do you get your images?

From many, many sources around the world. The difficult thing is that we are careful to use only work that is out of copyright. Copyright, especially international copyright, is very complicated, and we have queried several lawyers and done extensive research on our own to be confident our work is clean.

Custom and personalized orders

We can print things about however you want. Sometimes there will be an extra charge.

I have an old Catholic image. Can you make a print or a charm of it?

Yes! We'll need to discern of it's out-of-copyright, but if it is, we can do it. Set-up charges might apply.

What kind of paper do you print on!

We use acid-free, fine art paper. Two main kinds, depending on the print. Vintage items like old holy cards or medieval images are printed on natural cotton stock. It has a slightly off-white color, almost creamy, and harmonizes beautifully with certain vintage prints.

If the print is of a museum-type piece, then we will use a bright white fine art paper.

Both have a matte finish which gives our prints a fine-art look.

They are both thick paper, like a cardstock.

They are both archival, and combined with our archival pigments, will not have significant fading for many generations, upwards of 200 years, if kept dry and out of the direct sun.

Are your prints archival?

Yes! They are archival, using acid-free paper and archival pigments, rated to not have significant fading for many generations, upwards of 200 years, if kept dry and out of the direct sun. (source: epson.com)

Do your charms have lead in them?

No. We use lead-free solder.
