Sometimes choosing a gift can be difficult and frustrating. Particularly if the recipient is choosy or already seems to have "everything", offering an item with meaning can seem impossible. An antique poster is an ideal option for a gift that will be unexpected and truly impactful. There are innumerable options for antique posters, so finding one for any person on your gift list is not only possible, but exciting.
Reproductions vs Originals
If you are considering an antique poster as a gift one of the first things you must consider is whether you wish to purchase a reproduction piece or an actual original poster. Reproductions have the advantage of being less expensive, and because they are reprinted they are in pristine condition. Original posters, however, are special in that they are true pieces of history. When you present someone with a original poster from a time past, you are giving them something precious. That seemingly simple piece of paper has witnessed crucial moments in time, seen tremendous change, and influenced unknown numbers of people who have seen it since its creation.
The Nancy Steinbock Posters collection is comprised only of original antique posters. These vintage pieces make impressive and touching gifts to people with special interests, talents, or desires. Whether they choose to display the poster in a frame as a unusual decorative item, or keep it carefully preserved in a collection, that item will hold the dual impact of being a part of a topic that is important, but also because you thought of them enough to make such a personal purchase.
There are many ways that you can select an antique poster as a gift. One way is to evaluate your recipient's personality and pinpoint any special characteristics. These can be illustrated through a poster by translating them into something nostalgic. For example, a housewife with a strong connection to the traditional ideas of family and home life may feel a particular fondness for imagery from the 1940s and 50s that illustrate women caring for their families.
Appealing to a person's individual interests is a popular way of choosing a gift, and this applies to an antique poster as well. If your recipient has a particular love for an activity, object, or time period, an applicable vintage poster can be a unique addition to their collection or way to express this love through décor. Our collection is widely varied, and includes posters regarding modes of transportation such as trains, ships, and motorcycles, sports, types of entertainment, even advertisements for various products.
The purpose of a gift is to offer something that will be meaningful or useful to the recipient. Offering an antique poster that touches the emotions of that recipient is a fabulous way of creating a special memory with your gift. Whether you are giving a gift for a holiday or birthday, as a thank you, or just as an expression of love, a vintage poster is a moving option. Imagine the feeling of an aspiring writer when presented a vintage poster depicting a magazine or book from decades ago, or the connection you would feel when presenting an original piece of war propaganda to someone who fought. These gifts can create a treasured bond between generations, or a meaningful acknowledgement of a dream.
