Exchange that Wall Art for an Original Poster

People often spend a substantial amount of time searching for the perfect piece of art for their space. Sometimes, something simple, classic and completely unexpected makes the biggest impact and leaves the most memorable impression. Rather than breaking the bank on a piece of art that you are really not even sure is right for your space, why not opt for an original poster instead? It will be rare, special and will certainly act as a conversation starter with guests.

Where to Place an Original Poster

Just like a piece of art, placement of an original poster is important. That being said, anything seems to go these days when it comes to decorating. These types of posters are appropriate for any room in your home, but ideally, you will make sure that yours is at or just above eye level. Anything too high or too low can disrupt the flow of the room. The only exception is if you are creating a collage with several posters. Then, you will likely need to position a few out of that target line on the wall.

For example a pilot may want to create a collage with vintage airplane posters. This could be made of airlines or destinations, or even a little of both. In this case, they can be placed at random heights as long as you make sure each poster is straight when you are done.

Capture the Elegance of Motherhood With These Antique Posters

Once upon a time, all across America, every little boy and girl dreamed their day away as they were cradled in comfort in Whitney Baby Coaches. While strollers don’t necessarily inspire fairytales today, these coaches were magical back then. They appealed to women during the Civil War, stating that a quality stroller could promote good health as a baby rides in their carriage 400 to 700 miles in their first year. In fact, the title of their ad placed in The Telegraph on April 28, 1928, was “Help Baby to Health With a WHITNEY Baby Coach.” We capture how elegant these carriages made women feel in our antique posters.

Appreciate the Art of These Carriages in Our Antique Posters

Whitney Baby Coaches were essentially pieces of art. Modern day fancy strollers with a ton of features certainly can’t compare to the craftsmanship that went into these coaches. Whether you remember them or not, any mother can appreciate wanting the very best for their baby, which is why these antique posters are so popular. They make phenomenal gifts for mom as well.

Bring Back Memories with Vintage Travel Posters

Do you have an empty wall in your home or office that is just dying for a little excitement, but you don’t know what to do with it? Sometimes, art comes across too forced in a room. A focal point does not have to be bold and in your face, it needs to be interesting and sometimes even meaningful. This is where vintage travel posters come into play!

Be Proud of Where You Have Traveled with Vintage Travel Posters

Are you someone that has traveled dozens of interesting places either throughout the county or around the world? Why not create a collage of vintage travel posters to acknowledge all those exceptional vacation destinations?

Alternatively, if you have traveled by Greyhound bus, certain airless or by train, you may want to add posters to your collage that reflect this. The great thing about covering a wall with these types of posters is that you can always expand on the collage when you put another stamp in your passport!

Top 5 Vintage Posters for Mother’s Day

Before you buy mom yet another bouquet of flowers this Mother’s Day that will die off in a week, you may want to explore a more meaningful option. If you think mom can’t tell when her gift was rushed or an afterthought, think again! Of course, she “doesn’t want anything” and appreciates whatever you give, but wouldn’t it be nice to give a gift that will blow her away this year? Vintage  posters are the perfect gifts; she certainly won’t expect one, so it will be a true surprise!

Recommended Vintage Posters for Mother’s Day

Here at Nancy Steinbock Posters, we offer a diverse selection of fantastic vintage posters, but there are a few that mom just might find a little extra special for sentimental reasons.

  1. Buy Christmas Seals – You may be too young to remember the popularity of Christmas seals, but mom or grandma likely appreciate how important they were. The American Lung Association started this in 1907 when the leading cause of death was tuberculosis. Emily Bissel designed the first seal, and sold them for a penny a piece at the post office to donate to a local hospital.
  1. The Real Mother Goose – As a child, Mother Goose was often taken literally to be a real goose, but it was meant to represent an archetypal country woman. Mother Goose is the imaginary author of many nursery rhymes and fairy tales.
  1. Ferry’s Seeds – We have a few different Ferry’s Seeds posters available. Founded in 1856, this was the place to get all your seeds for the longest time. If mom had a flower or vegetable garden, there is a good chance that she used Ferry’s Seeds. Maybe she still does!
  1. Travel – Does mom always talk about her vacation she took when she was young? We have an array of travel posters to choose from for places, such as New York, Hawaii, Alaska, New Hampshire, Nantucket, South Pacific and Boulder Dam.
  1. American Red Cross – If your mom lived during World War II, there is a good chance that she was  a nurse for the Red Cross, or knew someone who was. Our Red Cross posters make some of the most memorable, beautiful gifts you can give this Mother’s Day to recognize her strength during difficult times.

They are some of the most powerful forms of marketing the country has seen to date.
