Vintage Posters and Prints 101

What exactly are original vintage posters and prints?

These are original-period pieces printed in the year listed on the product page. Most of our pieces date from the late 1930s to the 1990s. Braich Posters does not sell replicas or future date re-prints and we put our guarantee behind the quality and originality of every piece we sell.

How do I know they are original?

Buying from a reputable dealer that stands behind the products they sell is very important and بريش بوسترز Braich Posters prides itself as being such a dealer. We take personal care to ensure that all our pieces are unique, authentic, and in great conditions.

What size were the print runs for these types of pieces?

Print runs typically varied anywhere from a less then a hundred to a few thousand, but the size of the print run is less important than the number of a given poster or print that have survived. Most advertising posters were hung outdoors and consequently were ripped off or plastered over with new advertising.  Magazines and other prints were read and discarded. It is often difficult to determine what remains of a given poster or print in circulation, but the number is typically not large.   

How were posters printed?

Most of our prints and posters are printed using stone lithography, also called, chromolithography for coloured prints. In the 19th century, chromolithography became the chief means of inexpensively reproducing works of art in colour and illustrating books and magazines. Though laborious, stone lithography could produce thousands of elegant images without image degradation. Draftsmen and artists etched images and text into large slabs of limestone using a grease crayon and an acid bath. They did colour separation, using one stone for each colour on the poster, and then they layered the colours on the page. Although this breakthrough technology required a lot of skill and hard work for the creation of the template from limestone, it produced rich colours and textures previously never seen before, and even incomparable in style, look, and feel to today’s offset technologies. Once you see a lithograph print with your own eyes you’ll understand what we mean!  Print media saw a switch to offset lithography around the 1940s, the primary technology used today.

Why did posters and prints survive?

As far as posters go, people began collecting them almost as soon as they began appearing on the streets. Collector clubs were formed, poster exhibitions were held. Posters survived because they were appreciated from the get go. The prints that we sell come from different sources.

Why are they in such great condition?

For the most part we sell pieces in excellent condition, but given the age of the items we sell, this is not always the case. We try to describe the condition of our posters as precisely as possible. Please refer to our condition guidelines. Posters in the best condition are usually from print overruns that were never used or right away collected. However, due to their age it can be expected that one sometimes encounters folds, tears, fades, discolouration, and other damage.

What is poster conservation and restoration?

The pieces that we sell have been produced up to 80 years ago. For the most part they were never meant to be valuable collectibles.  Advertising posters were meant to be plastered onto a city wall to be removed a short time later once the advertising campaign ended.  Magazine pages were meant to be read and discarded.  They were produced on thin newspaper-like paper. The paper contained high levels of acidity, which over time can cause damage to itself.  All our pieces go through a professional restoration and conservation process. They are de-acidified to stop their deterioration. This process also removes the many-year-old dirt to bring out their original colors. Next, the piece is restored with any damages professionally repaired. Finally, they are backed on a thick acid-free linen paper, which gives the pieces structure and mitigates the possibility of any future damage. All conservation is done with organic materials and is fully reversible. The process increases the value of the poster as a collectible.

Why are posters valuable?

Vintage posters and prints are highly sought after by collectors all over the world. First the are very unique. These pieces were printed in limited batches with only a fraction of them surviving today. Almost all advertising posters were only printed one time. After the print house finished a print run, the lithography stones needed to be reused, so the original design was ground off, the stone was polished, and a new design was created. Over the last few decades posters and prints have significantly gone up in value as their popularity continues to increase. You may have noticed that their price ranges widely. There are a number of factors that contribute to a piece’s value including its subject matter, originality, the quality of the piece, the fame of the artist, its rarity and condition. 

Who are these pieces for?

If you are looking for a unique, rare pieces for your house, apartment, loft, office, restaurant, or hair studio, posters and prints are an amazing addition for your interior.

At بريش بوسترز Braich posters we do our best to accurately describe each piece. Each of our pieces is photographed in high quality so you can zoom in and view the poster in greater detail.

The condition of any collectible will substantially affect its value. No where is this more true than in the world of vintage movie posters.

We work hard to remove as much subjectivity as we can from the grading process. We tent to mention as much as possible the minor flaws in our description section in the listing. We use the scale below and it is  intended only as a guideline.


- NEAR MINT - Virtually unused; only the slightest signs of wear. A poster in NEAR MINT condition may have minor blemishes in the border only. The artwork is in excellent condition with no blemishes whatsoever.

- VERY GOOD - Light use with no serious defects; a relatively clean specimen. A poster in VERY GOOD condition may have blemishes in the border and up to approximately one inch of the poster's artwork. There may be small tears in the artwork along the fold lines only. It may also have minor fading.

- GOOD - Average, moderate use; expect variety of cosmetic flaws, tears, tackholes and small tape or light staining in borders, some wear at major fold intersections. A poster in GOOD condition may have tears or small holes that measure no larger than a quarter on the outer edges of the poster's artwork. Pieces of the border may be torn or missing; there may be mild bleed-through in the outer area of the artwork; there may be mild fading. In general, a poster in GOOD condition will have minor blemishes around the border and into the outer edges of the artwork. The major area of the artwork must be clear of any blemishes.

- FAIR - Heavily used but probably presentable if framed; image area is not significantly damaged. A poster in FAIR condition may have major blemishes that directly affect the artwork of the poster. The poster is recognizable and the artwork is primarily intact. A poster in FAIR condition must be professionally restored.
