Q. Do you have this particular make/model automobile in another color? My car is blue, not white.

A. The short answer to this is probably, no. We cannot re-create an original print since the manufacturer chose to highlight a particular model, color scheme, etc. Most advertisements for automobiles would showcase a particular model, make, engine size etc. and this would apply to the entire model line. Rarely would different color schemes be used for a particular model in a given year or campaign.

A. We maintain a locator search service to help serious collectors find their desired advertisement. Our search fee is fixed at $50.00US.

Q. Why is your locator service so expensive?

A. Many individuals contact us to locate a particular print and then never follow through with the purchase. Before we will undertake the time consuming task of locating a print for a potential buyer, we must be certain the request is legitimate and the buyer has every intention of following through with a purchase. For more information, please view our locator search info page.

Q. What happens if I am unhappy with my purchase?

A. We offer a full refund minus actual shipping charges for any purchase. See more about our 100% money-back guarantee for details and conditions. Locator service fees are non-refundable. The fee is charged to cover costs of time and effort undertaken to locate your print.

Q. Why are many of your sold ads left on site?

A. Our ultimate goal in creating this site is to highlight the incredible talent and art design graphic work that existed in the last century. Illustrators and artists were the main driving force behind the print advertising medium throughout the middle of the 20th century. Our principle mission is for this site to serve the internet public as a resource archival center in memory of a unique and forgotten craft.
