What do I love most about vintage advertisement posters? There are so many things-the colors, graphics/artwork, the movie stars and recognizing some of today's products in their early days. These pieces make interesting pieces of art to liven up any room in your home.
If you are interested in collecting vintage advertisements you may want to start with choosing a category. Some of the popular advertisement categories include: cars, kitchen/household products, smoking/tobacco, movies, food, military, medicines, airline, brewerianna, etc.
Advertising posters are very collectible because they were not meant to be saved, especially those from the early 1900's. If you cannot afford advertising posters themselves, a great alternative is advertisement pages from old magazines that can be removed and framed.
Some General Tips:
-Choose a category
-Handle them with care and mount on acid free paper.
-Look out for condition as it effects value. Stay away from pieces that have folds, tears, rough edges, discoloration, water/grease marks
