Q: How do you make these items?
A: Most imprinted images seen on the VINTAGE-IMAGING website
are obtained from archival sources such as various libraries'
digital holdings or private websites and are available
with no known copyrights, and/or are in the public domain.
They are visually adjusted, cropped, and enhanced in various ways
using graphic art software.
On some items the image imprint is achieved using an acrylic gel
transfer process. Others are sandcarved with a sandblaster,
and sometimes color filled. Some parts may be laser engraved
while others are simply printed on high quality paper directly
from the computer and framed.
