Top shop for gifts.

A buyer bought a gift from this shop and gave it a 5-star review!

Announcement    Greetings, Lovers of Art and Life, An attempt at Good Trouble, taking a queue from smarter administrations before us. In the 1930's the New Deal proclamations created the Federal Art Project, which a division of created posters to warn the public of the dangers of syphilis. The word Syphilis and Covid-19 take up about the same amount of space typographically speaking, thus the seed for this series of posters was born.

As we have seen since the beginning of 2020, a pandemic has taken over the world, and the fight to control it in this country has been minimal at best. Herd immunity will not work without millions of friends, neighbors and countrymen dying. I truly believe we are better than this.

Which lead to this series of posters. Found on the Library of Congress website, the original public domain images were manipulated for our modern problems.

Downloads are priced cheap for immediate dissemination. Prints are on durable poster production paper with a gloss finish. If you need multiple images printed on newsprint contact for deals.

Peace Love and Respect those who have different opinions than you.

Practices Involving the Vintage Expansion Principle

I started taking little things, made them bigger. I focused on postage stamps for a while and became prolific enough to open a shop here on Etsy called pastpostage. It's about taking vintage stamps or what have you, scanning, cleaning, enlarging, printing, coating, making frames, stretching, mounting and packaging them in my nook, a garage space in the Mission District. I have had a few shows in the garage gallery and around town, in cafes, salons, bars, restaurants - even a biofuel place. Right from the get go I was going beyond postage stamps to matchbooks, lighters, concert tickets, vintage photography, vintage baseball cards, even satellite imagery of the Earth. Each new show created the challenge to make a new set that hadn't been seen before. I created this new store to contain some of the offshoots of my graphic wanderings. It may get confusing. The best method is to use the shop sections listed on the main page and please feel free to ask any questions. Custom sizes and special orders are always considered.

Returns and exchanges
Of course, things can happen. If something does, let me know and I'm sure we can work something out.
Shipping
I tend to use USPS for most of the smaller items. Once a piece gets to a certain size I move to UPS or FedEx. Shipping charges of large scale items usually varies by final destination so the quoted amounts in the shipping portion of a listing could be inaccurate. In the event of an overcharge refunds are gladly given. Reversely, kindly keep in mind that expedited overseas shipping of large scale items can sometimes cost more than the actual artwork! If there are any concerns over shipping costs please start a conversation with me and I can give a more accurate cost once I know the destination. Fair enough?
