Happy Holidays Everyone!
December 19, 2012
Hope everyone is having a great holiday! Really enjoying giving people these great photos to remind them of a different generation. It is just amazing to me to see how things looked and felt like in the early part of the 20th century. I'm 38 so I never saw any of that and it's just a joy to find these old photos, and then print them out. Just gorgeous! Anyways, enough rambling. As a thank you to our many customers who support us we've created a wallpaper gallery for everyone to download. We would like to do a calendar next holiday season so any input is welcome. Talk to us on Facebook about your favorite photos.

Due to continuing issues with lost packages and super slow delivery times from the post office, effective immediately we will no longer ship anything through the Post Office. We realize that this may hurt our business with some customers, but we must strive for perfection when it comes to on-time deliveries and packages actually arriving. We apologize to our customers who have had packages never arrive or arrive up to a week later after shipment. We offer competive pricing through FedEx and we have lost one package in over a year of doing business with them. We've lost 2 in the past 2 weeks with the Post Office.

Custom Framing Now Available!
December 5, 2011
Retro Snapshots is happy to announce the addition of custom framing through one of our framing partners. We wanted to find a framing partner that used high quality frames, was reliable, fast, and affordable and believe we have found a great company to work with. We will be using Larson-Juhl frames, which are used by custom frame shops around the country. They are know for high quality frames, have built a track record of being environmentally responsible, and their frames are built in the United States, meaning more local jobs for our communities.
You can now purchase framed prints by going to our Frames category. The prices you see include the photo and framing. Turnaround time for framing jobs will be 1-2 days so you can expect to see a framed print at your door within 7-10 days from time of purchase, depending on the shipping method you choose. We hope that you will give our custom frames a try; our prices are very competitive with local frame shops. Which is why we include the frame # and all the information you would need to get a quote from your local shop.

Lots of Great New Photos Added
October 12, 2011
We've been busy getting ready for the holiday season. The past few weeks we've added new photos of Detroit and Chicago. There are some great views of these American cities from the Late 1800s and early 1900s. Some of the Chicago photos are especially interesting because they show a view of downtown Chicago that is totally different from what it looks like now. The area where the museum campus is and that part of Lake Shore Drive was non-existent back then because it was Lake Michigan! They created land to fill in this area.
We also created a brand new category to showcase our Pittsburgh photo collection. There are some wonderful photos showing steelworkers working their trades, skylines, views of the rivers, and also some photos of the Carnegie Mellon University.
