Please refer to our FAQs below for more details and don't hesitate to contact us with any further questions.

  • It's a big YES from us!
  • Buy a minimum of 3 prints - any design, any size, any format - and receive 15% off your total print order.
  • Discount Code: PRINTBUNDLE
  • Enter the above discount code at checkout. Please note that only one discount code can be used at any one time so if you have an unused HELLO 10% off welcome code save that for next time!
  • Free shipping as always.
    • This option is for you if you've fallen in love with one of our restored images and you've got the perfect frame or you know where to source one.
    • We print soon after we receive an order and we don't muck around with quality. We print on 230gsm acid-free, wood-free, pH-neutral, archival matte paper using premium archival pigment inks. In a nutshell, the paper is top notch and the high-level digital printing results in superior colour saturation.
    • The dimensions we quote is the actual paper size and so our 7 sizes fit standard metric frames, eg. an A3 print will fit a standard A3 frame.
    • All prints include an off-white printed border that sits between the image and the edge of the paper. We think it looks fabulous and mimics a mat board but without the expense. If you really don't want a border let us know in the Notes section at checkout.
      Off-white printed border widths:
      A3 - 13mm; A2 - 19mm; A1 - 27mm; A0 - 38mm;
      B2 - 23mm; B1 - 32mm; B0 - 50mm.
    • When it comes time to ship we take great care with packaging because we've learned over the years that the freight process can be a little rough! Unframed prints are gently rolled and shipped in sturdy tubes and we haven't had a complaint yet.
    Unframed Print Example
      • This option is for you if you've fallen in love with one of our restored images and you want it professionally framed.
      • We print as per Unframed Prints above and then ask our framer to frame in your choice of white, natural oak, dark oak or black sustainable timber.
      • Frames measure 20mm on the face and 30mm on the side for our A3, A2, A1, B2 and B1 sizes. Frames measure 30mm on the face and 30mm on the side for our A0 size. Frames overlap the outer 5mm of the paper.
        So, in a nutshell, the final framed dimensions for our prints are:
        A3: 325 x 450mm (add 40mm to height & width minus a 10mm overlap); A2: 450 x 625mm; A1: 625 x 870mm; B2: 530 x 735mm: B1: 735 x 1030mm; A0: 890 x 1240mm
      • Our framer uses Shinkolite 3mm cast acrylic rather than glass: it is lightweight, virtually unbreakable, has greater optical clarity than glass and provides your print with long term protection from harmful UV rays.
      • Frames are finished on the back with d-rings, wire and bump-ons and ready to hang.
      • Our framer will despatch direct to you in professional packaging.
      • PLEASE NOTE: We offer our largest size - the B0 1000mm x 1414mm - as a framed print only to people who are able to collect from our framer in Carrum Downs VIC (due to shipping difficulties with couriers). To order please select the B0 canvas floating frame option with your preferred frame colour and enter the following copy in the Notes section: "This is a FRAMED PRINT order not canvas and I will collect when ready". 
      Framed Print Example
        • This option is for you if you prefer a textured image without a frame.
        • We print on Bauhaus bright white canvas 380gsm which has a superior bright white matte surface with perfect colour control and clear texture.
        • The canvas is a cotton/polyester blend. Polyester is added to give greater tension across the image so it doesn’t sag over time.
        • The printed canvas is then stretched onto a pine stretcher bar which is strong, durable and from planted forests so environmentally friendly.
        • All finishing materials used are museum grade and acid free.
        • Our framer will despatch direct to you in professional packaging.
        Stretched Canvas Example
          • This option is for you if you prefer a textured image with a frame.
          • We print as per Stretched Canvas above and our professional framer then frames with a 5mm gap between the canvas and frame.
          • This contemporary, popular style gives the illusion that your canvas picture is actually “floating” within the frame as the picture sits away from the frame instead of the edge of the picture disappearing behind the frame itself (as it does with standard print framing).
          • Frames measure 10mm on the face and 40mm on the side and colours available include white, natural oak, dark oak and black sustainable timber.
          • Frames are finished on the back with d-rings, wire and bump-ons and ready to hang.
          • Our framer will despatch direct to you in professional packaging.
          Canvas Floating Frame Example
            • Retro Print Merchants is proudly Australian owned and operated and all our prints are officially endorsed by the Australian Made Campaign.
            • All artworks are professionally printed and professionally framed here in Australia by local suppliers who are as pedantic about quality as we are.
            • We ran a successful graphic design company for 20 years so we know a thing or two about image quality. If we can't restore an image to the quality necessary to enlarge it then we won't add it to the collection.
            • We understand our customers and we respect them. We will treat you the way we would like to be treated.
            • We aim to provide quality prints and canvas art at a reasonable price so that people from all walks of life can enjoy these wonderful vintage images in their own homes.
            • We're not out to build an empire nor have the most instagram likes. We just want to keep doing what we have loved doing for a number of years, do it better than a number of others in this industry and continue to be proud of our achievements.
            • YEP - FREE SHIPPING!
              You won't be charged shipping within Australia unless you need an unframed print in a hurry and opt for Express Post which is $10 (not available for framed prints, stretched canvas or canvas floating frames).
            • We print and frame to order which means every single print that leaves our hands is new and fresh and has been produced just for you.
            • It also means it may take 5 production days for unframed prints plus delivery.
            • For framed prints, stretched canvas and canvas floating frames we ask for 3-4 weeks production plus delivery. We will do our very best to get it to you earlier if we can.

            • The protective watermark in the centre of our online images will not appear on your print, we promise. It's only there to stop schmucks downloading and reproducing our restored files and original creations.
              • We manufacture to order and therefore we do not provide cancellations, refunds, returns or exchanges if you have a change of mind or if you ordered the incorrect size, format or design across our range.

              Such great colours!

              Great service (covid related shipping delays but tracking showed me where it was at with Aust. Post) The colours were so vivid and strong! I was worried about the black being watered down but it is so rich and completely black and green. Gorgeous!

              Retro print perfection

              I have bought quite a few prints from Tour de France cycling retro prints to old advertising prints and posters. I love them all and they makes such excellent gifts. They arrive in good condition without a long wait on postage. They are pretty true to the colours presented online . The only problem ,for the first time ever,after buying and framing more than eight prints myself, is that the A3 print didn’t fit in a frame that I bought which was A2 size with border for A3 size poster. Probably the frames fault? Love , love , love them and running out of wall space

              Having recently moved into Red Hill we were keen to decorate and so grateful we went to La Brocante in search of some large prints...Penny and Matt were delightful! After a lengthy deliberation (so much to choose from) we selected three prints ...two from an Italian magazine, Le Lettura, and a King Pelican print. Carefully delivered and on time they now adorn what was previously a ho hum large bare wall in our living area. They look absolutely fabulous and have totally transformed the room. A great experience all round...I highly recommend a visit to La Brocante and/or to the website. Sally (and Phil B)
