First off, any apologies for the distinct lack of posts on here in an excessively long time. Real life getting in the way and such…Anyway, back to normality so will be posting a lot more in the coming months.
As you may know, I am a great believer in the potential of using public domain images for profit. I have been browsing the Visipix site recently to find some images for the purpose of making prints (great site by the way – almost 55,000 fine art images and photos on here, check it out at http://visipix.dynalias.com/index_hidden.htm). Anyway I came across some great vintage postcards I’d like to share with you. Unfortunately there is no information on Visipix regarding any of the postcard images on there so all I know about these is that they are German and they are pretty cool! If anyone knows anything about them / the name of the artist, please leave a comment:
Although these images would make good prints, as they were originally postcards, this got me to thinking that there would be no reason why you couldn’t reprint them at their original size and sell them in sets. Online or supermarket photolab printing is dirt cheap these days – 6×4 prints cost literally pennies and you could sell a set of (say) ten “repro vintage postcard prints” for $5 -$10 no problem. Just an idea…
There are over 600 postcard images on the Visipix site. Here’s some more I liked:
Merry Christmas etc etc to everyone (dont like christmas, in case you didn’t guess!) and I shall return with many posts in the new year!
