A New Product, Vintage Looking Cabinet Cards
I’ve been so busy that the blog has really slipped behind. I’ve been developing a new way of marketing my collection of historic photographs. I’ve come up with a practical way to make reproduction cards that look and feel quite like the real thing. So far, they are proving quite salable!
Cabinet Cards were a very popular way to collect photos of far away, exotic places in the 1880’s through 1920’s. Many sizes were marketed, one very popular size being the “Boudoir” card, which appeared in the late 1880’s, after which Earth Sea Imagery Boudoir Cards are patterned.
Our Cabinet Cards are styled to have the look and feel of rare and valuable vintage cards, using modern archival materials. They even include period-style studio advertising on the backs. Some are duplicates of originals, others are created from selected vintage photographs.
I’m having a lot of fun with this, finally, a way to do something with my huge collection that’s been building since about 1965!
