questions and answers


Where do your motifs come from?

We are history geeks who look for new motifs in various archives in Sweden. While we want our motifs to tell a story, we also want to be careful to produce things that are actually beautiful and fit in a nicely decorated home. From time to time we also get tips from customers, which we think is super fun!

Why can't I find the size I want on my design?
We process all our designs and make sure they have the resolution required to look really good on print. Sometimes this means we can't print smaller old photographs in the largest formats - they just wouldn't look good. In the same way, we do not offer certain motifs in smaller sizes because it would lose the point of the motif (a newspaper cover in 30x40 cm is barely readable).

What type of paper are your posters printed on?

We use the premium manufacturer Hahnemühle, Fine Art paper which is specially designed for printing exclusive prints. We have carefully chosen from the assortment and landed on the variant Hahnemühle Matt Fiber 200g. It is a paper with a certain texture that we think is very well suited to prints that would like to have a slightly rustic or aged feel, such as old posters, drawings or maps. In addition, the paper is acid-free and the warm tone contributes to giving the motifs a depth that simpler paper varieties cannot provide.

What kind of frames do you have?

Our frames are stable and made of painted or natural wood. The frames come with plexiglass and can easily be hung on the long or short side using mounted hangers on the back. Framing is done easily through smart metal buckles that make the work quick and easy.

Is the frame included in the price?

No, frame is not included but can be made as an option and the poster will then be framed and ready to hang.

Where are your posters made?
Our printing house and logistics center are located in Västergötland.
