Adirondack Retro FAQ

Q1.) Are your Antique and Vintage Prints and Ads Originals or Reproductions? 

A1.) All of our "Antique Prints" and "Vintage Ads" are Authentic and Original. We have also digitized our entire collection and they are all available for purchase or can be professionally printed by Adirondack Retro in a size that fits your needs. These can be found under the "Giclee Prints" section of our site. In other words, Everything on our site is Authentic and Original EXCEPT for the "Giclee Prints" Section.

Q2.) Your picture shows a vintage car. Will I be receiving the car in the mail? 

A2.) Nope. You are purchasing A PIECE OF VINTAGE OR ANTIQUE PAPER that has been carefully removed from its source, typically a magazine or book.

Again...NO CAR, Sorry!.

Q3.) How do you package your items for shipping? 

A3.) We take great pride in the way that we Pack and Ship our items to you! This is our one chance to impress you! We use high quality shipping materials and pack each item as if it were a priceless piece of china being shipped to Antarctica! All of our Antique Prints and Ads are boarded and bagged with archival quality products, then sandwiched between two pieces of properly sized cardboard pads prior to inserting them into a rigid mailer, with larger items shipped gently rolled in a sturdy mailing tube which are clearly marked and labeled with instructions for the carriers to handle very carefully. For more information, please refer to our Packing and Shipping Page.

Q4.) How long have you been in business?

Q6.) I am looking for a particular antique or vintage print or advertisement that is not listed on your website. Can you help? 

A6.) We sure can. In fact, there is a good chance we may have it in stock, but simply have not got around to listing it yet. Feel free to CONTACT US with your request. We would love to hear from you!

Q7.) I want to purchase several of your items. Do you offer discounts for multiple purchases? 

A7.) We sure do. We have many clients who purchase in quantity, such as Wholesalers, Hotel Chains, Museums, Interior Decorators, Government Agencies, TV Production Teams and Businesses Worldwide. Send us a message via our CONTACT US form with your request, or call Kevin at +1 518-538-8090.

Q8.) Why do Antique Prints cost more than Fine Art Giclee Prints of the same print? 

A8.) Antique prints are much more difficult to find, cost considerably more to procure and to store properly in inventory. They are also much more likely to appreciate in value over time as opposed to a modern day Giclee Print that has been reproduced from one of our Original Antique Prints. With that said, many customers choose a giclee print because they can have it made in a size of their liking. Shop our Giclee Prints!

Q9.) Do you offer any B2B discounts to interior decorators, Movie or TV Set Decorators, Corporations, Small Businesses, Museums or Government Agencies? 

A9.) Yes we do. We work closely with many clients in these fields, and would love to work with you as well. Check out our B2B Portal to get started or simply send us a message via our CONTACT US form with your request, or call Kevin at +1 518-538-8090.
