Oldimprints.com is a gallery of vintage and antique ephemera and magazines, maps and prints and books. Our business is driven by our love of the combination of great graphics and historical insight which is intrinsic to so much vintage paper. Our stock ranges in date from the 1600s to the 1950s - great design is not limited by date! We have been in business since 1981, and have thrived on (or survived!) the many changes in the book and antiques worlds. Much of our business is web based, but we also have a showroom open by appointment in S.E. Portland, Oregon, USA which many of our longtime and new customers enjoy visiting; we also do several shows. About the word "imprints" in our name: Imprint refers to the impression made, during the printing process, from the block on the paper, whether the resulting impression is an image or text. Having started out as Nineteenth Century Prints, as our range of inventory widened to books, ephemera and magazines we morphed to Nineteenth Century Imprints to Old Imprints and finally to oldimprints.com as we broadened the timeline of our stock and as our business sales emphasis changed!
