About

giving new life to forgotten treasures

As I went about curating vintage pieces for my other shop – Arcq.etsy.com – I kept coming across beautiful old books, prints and posters that had been abandoned and were begging to be rescued and given a new life.

The prints and posters that I find, especially any that are framed, are generally in good vintage condition.

Sadly, old and antique books don’t tend to fare so well with the passage of time and are often badly damaged and falling apart. But sometimes, hidden within their pages, are the most stunning drawings, prints and illustrations!

Rescuing these delightful individual gems, so that they can become a much-loved and admired artwork in someone’s home or office, has become something of a mission for me.

Looking for acquisitions for ArcqINK is now a natural extension to my routine whenever I’m out and about sourcing gorgeous vintage items.

I love what I do ... and I hope that you fall in love with some of ArcqINK’s unique pieces.

Welcome to Arcq INK and my collection of beautiful vintage and antique prints, posters, bookplates and book pages.

All are GENUINE vintage and antique pieces – no modern reproductions here – that have been abandoned but are now rescued and ready to be re-loved.

This means that they may have signs of wear or age. Personally, I think this just adds to their authenticity and overall charm – whether it be a warm yellow tone, some spotting or uneven printing, a bent corner or an uneven edge where a page has come away from its binding.

I always do my utmost to provide an accurate description and to note and/or photograph any such character flaws.

Arcq INK is an extension of my other shop ... Arcq.etsy.com

Payment
If you're new to Etsy, this tutorial might help http://www.etsy.com/help/article/339

INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS – payment via PayPal or Direct Checkout is preferred. Paypal is secure, easy and you don’t need to open or have an existing PayPal account – you can simply use your current credit/debit card as a PayPal ‘guest’ when going through Checkout.

AUSTRALIAN CUSTOMERS – can choose to pay by PayPal, Direct Checkout or EFT (ie direct deposit, bank transfer). All the necessary details are provided when you select 'bank transfer' during Checkout. Please note, bank transfers can take 1-2 business days to clear.
Shipping
All items are packed with care to arrive safely. Most prints will be mailed flat in a protective plastic sleeve with cardboard insert to prevent damage during transit. Larger pieces may be rolled, protected with plastic and mailed in a sturdy cardboard tube.

In an effort to reduce waste, I do re-use clean shipping materials when possible.

TRACKING, INSURANCE & EXPRESS SHIPPING – if you would like any of these services, feel free to ask me for a quote before making a purchase.

INTERNATIONAL – I ship worldwide by airmail.

SHIPPING ADDRESS – items will be posted to your designated Etsy address, so please make sure that it's up-to-date. If you want an item sent to an alternate address (eg if you purchase something as a gift), just let me know via the ‘Message to Seller’ box during Checkout... or in a Convo.

ADELAIDE PICK UP – if you live locally, you're welcome to arrange collection from Flagstaff Hill. I can either set up a Reserved listing with a zero Shipping cost; or you can proceed through Checkout and I will credit back any shipping paid.

OVER-ESTIMATIONS – if I over-estimate on shipping by more than AUD$2.00, the difference is always promptly refunded.
Refunds and Exchanges
All sales are final, so please choose carefully by reading the listing and studying the photos well.

If you're unhappy with something, please contact me before leaving Feedback and I will do my very best to resolve the problem.
Additional policies and FAQs
Any FREE print(s) must be requested when making your purchase. Simply copy and paste the item’s title in the ‘Note to Seller’ during Checkout. And, if you miss leaving the note, don’t worry – just Convo me ASAP so that I can add it to your order.

If your purchase is a gift, I am very happy to ship direct to the lucky recipient. Please provide details in the ‘Note to Seller’ at Checkout – their full name, postal address and any message you would like included.
