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

  • 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.
  • Our 7 print sizes fit standard metric frames - easy!
  • All prints include an off-white printed border because we think it looks fabulous. If you really don't want a border let us know in the Notes section at checkout.
  • 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 40mm on the side for our A3, A2, A1, B2 and B1 sizes. Frames measure 30mm on the face and 40mm on the side for our A0 size.
    • 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.
    • Please note we do not offer our largest size B0 as a framed print due to shipping difficulties. Please order the B0 size as a stretched canvas or canvas floating frame instead.
    • Our framer will despatch direct to you in professional packaging.
    • Framed prints are not available outside Australia.
    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 option is not available outside Australia.
      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 option is not available outside Australia.
        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.

            Our experience with Penny at Retro Print Merchants

            We saw a large print of Mon Oncle in a restaurant while holidaying in Melbourne a few years ago and immediately wanted one for our home. We are fans of Jacqes Tati and have always loved this image from the movie. Years later we decided to finally make the purchase and contacted Penny. I was impressed with her customer service from the beginning of the process. We were looking at various options and decided on the canvas print and a floating black frame. When ordering something like this (which, to us, was quite a lot of $) online it is always a concern as to what the actual item will look like. Penny assured us that the canvas print was of exceptional quality so we were looking forward to its arrival. There were a few delays due to deliveries of materials due to Covid, but that was understandable. When it arrived we were more than impressed with the print quality and the framing, it was everything we expected. I did however notice a large tear in the thick professional grade packaging when it arrived. You can imagine my disappointment when I discovered that the print had also been damaged while in transit. Penny advises on the order to contact her if there are any problems when your print arrives, so I did and was immediately told that they would replace it for us. That was it! I have never experienced a customer problem resolved so easily and without any delay. Penny explained that this does not happen very often and if it does they fix it, and she had already advised the printer to start another one for us! As it is now mid December I don't expect that we will receive the replacement until the new year, but that is completely acceptable. I would highly recommend this organisation to anyone who is looking at purchasing from them. Customer service like this is quite rare and very much appreciated. As I teach sales and marketing, I will be using this service story in my classes from now on. Well done Penny and the team, keep up the exceptional work! Much appreciated, and look forward to receiving the replacement print! Scott Dwyer
