It's the Sparkle that Counts

A bargain hunter, treasure seeker and thrift-store maven, I became frustrated that the books and plates I would find didn't fit into standard frames. Once I got a quote of $250 to provide mats for some custom-sized pieces. The frames were from IKEA and only cost $50 for all of them. So I set out to fix that - made my own 8x10 versions. Whenever I need new wall art, I just make myself something. But then family and friends wanted some. They also requested crafting versions: ATC size, stickers, bottle caps, etc. An Esty store was born.

"It's the sparkle that counts." That's my tagline. Once it's in that pretty Aaron Brothers penny-sale frame you bought with the pre-cut mat, hung in a group on the wall over your bath or the baby's crib, no one will know you didn't spring for the $500 set from Restoration Hardware. You can save that money and spend it on shoes...or the baby...or on more frames for more decorating.

You get a nominal sized print as described in the listing title, 300ppi (photo-resolution) in a JPG format directly downloadable from Etsy's website on payment. Remember it was once a print out of a book – aging, color loss, spots, errors by the artist are part of the fun of displaying vintage prints and not a result of poor quality files.

I host my files through Etsy now - so when you purchase you should get a download link with your Etsy receipt. I am still converting my listings, so if you order one that isn't an etsy-downloadable JPG, I will e-mail it to you. If you don't get it, please convo me!
Refunds and Exchanges
Since I am sending digital files, I rarely refund unless I've made an error in the file set-up or description. I try to solve any issues by adjusting the file to suit your requirements - and we can do that if you convo me.
Additional policies and FAQs
I got frustrated that book pages and vintage prints from the antique mall did not fit into standard frames. I tried adding ribbons, trims, paint, and scrapbook paper. Nothing made things look as right as a nice neatly-cut photo mat, which cost more than the print and the frame put together in most cases! So I tried scanning and editing my print so it came out 8x10 – viola! Perfect fit every time into frames from IKEA and Aaron Brothers (or your local mass-framing store!) And then I sold some on Etsy and people seemed to like them so I made more!

Convo me - I am a real person, and will get back to you as soon as I can.

Color is a touchy thing - everyone's printer is different, and unless you are a graphic pro and have calibrated your monitor using a very time-consuming and detailed process, they rarely match the screen colors. I've got access to three printers and I got different results on each, but I liked them all. You should try adjusting the color settings on the image using basic photo software that probably came with your computer (save the original file someplace safe.) If that doesn't work, please ask for my help.

In addition to size adjustments (metric? - I can do that!), sometimes I can adjust colors or lighten or darken items, provide png’s without the page, or make up a custom sheet for you. Just convo me or request a custom item. I’ll be glad to help.

Remember we all have different computers and different printers, so this is general advice: If it’s not printing the correct size, check the scale in your printer window - it's probably set on "fit to page" or something similar. Turn that off, and an 8x10 or 5.x7 should float in the middle of your 8-1/2x11 printer page. You may be using photo settings, and then you should make sure to turn off the white borders so you get the whole page. You can also take it to Walmart or other 1 hour photo printing place and order them as 8x10 photo prints. 11x14 and larger would likely need to be printed by a professional photo or reprographic service, but they have reasonable rates. If you need an artist release, just ask.
