    Announcement    Enjoy the vintage miniature artwork from postage stamps without a magnifying glass, without trapping these great little pieces of art in rarely seen binders, scrapbooks and shoeboxes. I started to blow them up and thought of Past Postage. Vintage postage stamps, meticulously scanned, cleaned, enlarged and printed on a premium archival canvas. The canvas is given a protective UV coating then stretched and stapled over handmade wooden frames of kiln dried poplar. Smaller pieces are stretched over a half inch thick piece of high quality birch ply. All artwork comes securely packaged and ready to hang. This vintage expansion principle has been applied to matchbooks, baseball cards, concert tickets, digitized 8mm film and vintage photography and is featured in my new store on Etsy called Off the Hook in My Nook. Check it out here -http://www.etsy.com/shop/OffTheHookInMyNook.

    Past Postage began out of a habit of making small things large. By taking vintage postage stamps, enlarging them and then printing them on a premium archival canvas, exceptional imagery from the past can finally be seen without a magnifying glass. The printed canvas is given a protective UV coating and stretched over traditional wooden poplar frames, smaller pieces are stretched over a high quality birch ply. The perforations of the stamp are gallery wrapped onto the sides of the framework. All pieces come with mounting hardware attached and are ready to hang.
