Frequently Asked Question (FAQs) (updated 08-23-2011)
Q: What can I do with these photos?
A: These photos make great gifts! Even though many of our photos are purchased by collectors and/or investors, we have seen move buyers looking to purchases a truly rare item as a gift for those people who have everything. They can be framed and matted in black or silver as décor for your home, office or media room. Imagine getting your mom, dad or best friend a photo of their childhood hero, or getting that person a particular political figure or historic location they once admired or visited.
Q: Do you combine shipping and invoices?
A: Speical Holiday Promotion! Free shipping on all domestic orders through the end of the year. International shipping has been temporarily reduced to $2.99. This is a special promotion, so act fast. Q: How quickly do you ship the items once paid?
A: We typically ship the same business day payments clear, and always by the next business day of a cleared payment. If you do not receive an "order shipped" email from us by the close of the next business day from submitting payment, please e-mail us. We use eBay's software to manage our auctions and about one-tenth of one percent of transactions do not sync up with Paypal (much to our dismay).
