Thanks for looking at our prints!

The Old Fern was started by two friends who decided to take a trip to the Pacific North West after graduating college. During this trip they were exposed to many fine examples of original botanical art while browsing in a rare book shop in downtown Seattle. The color plates were amazing in the various texts, but the cost was prohibitive at an average of $500 a volume. It was learned that these old books on flowers and other types of natural history were being bought up by “collectors” who would then cut out all the images in the book and resell them as individual prints in “exclusive galleries.” These originals would often be a $100 or more for an image that was stained, faded and often a very odd size due to the book’s dimensions. The friends decided that there had to be a better way make these works of art available. Through much research and effort, a process was developed for restoring these antique works and providing an economical outlet for the “average” person to obtain the restored works. This chance discovery became the foundation of The Old Fern.

The Old Fern has been actively collecting, preserving and researching botanical prints for over 24 years, and our prints are printed at the highest quality available. All of our printing is now done by us in our South Carolina shop on large format canon printers. By doing this, The Old Fern is able to offer a higher quality product while lowering the cost to our customers (how often does that happen?). We stand behind the products we sell, and offer a 10-day satisfaction guarantee. If you are not satisfied with your purchase, just send it back to us for a refund or a replacement.
