About

Capturing the good old days one screenshot at a time.

This all started long before the time of Etsy.

When I was a very small kid, my parents bought me a Nintendo Entertainment System for Christmas. I doubt I could even read the names of the games, but it didn't matter. I was hooked, and over the next 30 years video games became a permanent fixture in my life.

It's amazing how much can stick with you over that period of time. I remember ruining the map that came with the original Zelda cartridge with my crude drawings of item locations. I remember laughing at my dad when he tried to play Metroid. I remember trading games with friends, staying home from school on snow days or sick days, and the exciting car ride to get a new game from a toy store. I think the early days of playing games were so special because you may not have had phones and camcorders to capture all those moments - but you had the games, and you can still play them today - exactly as they were - and a part of your childhood is stuck to those scenes in a way that's unique to every gamer.

I created this shop to capture those unique moments in a way that I would be proud to share and relive. I hope I can do the same for you.

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

Please include the name and date for personalized orders in a purchase note or through a message. Please double check the spelling of the names, the order of the names, and format of the date (usually MM.DD.YY)

I can't guarantee that I can make a completely custom scene, but I am always open to suggestions.

Sizing details

The size of all frames are 10x12.5 and the viewport is 8.5x11. I arrived at this size through careful trial and error - smaller sizes make the sprites hard to see and larger sizes make the sprites look blocky.

Care instructions

The frames are glass, so treat them as fragile once they are out of their packaging and be careful that the back hook catches on before you let go while wall mounting.

Wholesale availability

Since these are handmade I cannot offer much in the way of wholesale purchasing. However, you can use the following coupon codes for a discount on multiple scenes:

15OFF2 - 15% off 2 scenes
20OFF3 - 20% off 3 scenes
25OFF4 - 25% off 4+ scenes
