Vintage Sewing Trade Cards Digital Collage
For quite some time now, I have been acquiring vintage books, postcards, greeting cards, and the like. It started out merely as a passion for nearly anything old, then as a necessary part of having a large range of images to select from in my own jewelry designs. Most recently, I have broaden my search in an effort to provide a line of collage sheets for my loyal customers who are always and forever asking the question of where do I get my images.
Over the next few weeks you will see lots of new collage sheets being added to my store for all your altered art needs. All my sheets are laser printed on heavy weight matte cardstock, and sized 8.5 by 11. The cardstock allows the images to accept sealer without the background bleed through you may find with lighter weight papers. These are the same images I use in my own jewelry designs. The watermarks will not be visible on the sheet you receive. These sheets are also available in digital delivery format, and will be emailed to you in jpg format within 48 of purchase, but normally within 12 hours. They will require acrobat reader to view. If you elect digitally delivery, simple pay the original invoice, and send me an email saying that you want the sheet digitally delivered. I will refund the shipping charge back to your paypal account.
These original images are obviously in the public domain, and to that extent not copyrightable. However, these images have been digitally enhanced by me, and as such are now subject to copyright restrictions. Purchase of these collage sheets entitles the buyer to personal use of these images, including use for crafts and artwork for resale. Purchase of this collage sheet does not entitle the buyer to mass reproduce these images, either digitally or in print for resale or distribution.

Since this is my full-time job, making a profit is crucial. I accept Paypal only. Payment is expected at the time of purchase. If payment is not submitted within the timeframe alotted, and there is no communication, I will contact ArtFire, cancel the sale and leave appropriate feedback. All items will be shipped within 7 days, but most often within 1 to 3 days. I ship by USPS first class mail with delivery confirmation, and will upgrade to flat rate priority mail if I feel it is appropriate. If you need faster delivery, please email me in advance of purchase, and if it is possible for me to do so I will let you know, and reinvoice you for any additional shipping charge. If you want your purchase to be shipped insured let me know, again let me know in advance, and I will include the additional charge in your original bill. Once your package is shipped, I will try and send you an email to confirm shipment.Refunds and Exchanges:I want you to be happy with your purchase, but I expect you to assume some responsibility in carefully reading the listing details. A full refund including the shipping charge will gladly be offered if an item is not as represented. If an item is received damaged, please contact me, and I will let you know how I want the return to be handled. Sometimes I will want an item returned, and sometimes I won't. If an item is broken beyond repair, I normally won't want it returned, and there is no sense in incurring a return shipping charge for either one of us in this situation. Many times, if an item is broken, a photo showing the damage will suffice, and no return shipping charge will have to be paid. My primary concern is in making you happy with your purchase, and I try and increase the likelihood of this by detailed pictures, complete and detailed listings, attention to detail, and exacting standards. I won't sell you anything I wouldn't be happy with.Please know that I appreciate your support, and fully intend for your shopping experience here to be a good one.
I've been looking for bead caps for months to replace some on a pair of vintage earrings that I broke. Everything else I found was either the wrong size or looked cheap. Although larger than the ones they are replacing, the detail is lovely and they fit my briolettes perfectly. However, the order took 24 days, and I had to alert Artfire and contact the seller through Etsy, as Artfire's contact didn't seem to work. I didn't mind the wait so much as not being informed about the status of the order. Nevertheless, the pieces are lovely, so I'm knocking only one star off for the inconvenience.
Beautiful pendant and very fast shipping. Highly recommend.
