Frequently Asked Questions
Is the gallery open to the public?
YES - Absolutely. We are usually open Weekdays, 11-6, and from 11-6 M-Sat, 12-6 Sun. You don’t need an appointment, but it is ALWAYS a good idea to call first at 514 656 3301.
Do you sell reproductions?
Nope. We only sell original posters, prints and pochoirs...
What does it mean when you say a poster is ‘lined’?
Most posters were printed on newsprint which is flimsy - to preserve them, we mount (or line) on linen.
Why are posters so expensive? How do you determine prices?
Because most vintage posters were printed almost 100 years ago, they are in limited supply. Prices are determined by condition, by the reknown of the artist, and by the market. The dealer, however, does usually have leeway in determining prices - a dealer in a small city like Montreal (ahem) will probably charge less than a dealer in a larger city.
Do you take posters on consignment?
Yes - if they are in excellent condition, if I like them, and if I think I can sell them. (Certain fees apply.)
I'm new to collecting vintage posters, can you give me some tips?
Definitely! We will be giving tutorials and tips about the history of posters, and what to look. You can see it in our Guide To Collecting Vintage Posters section, and feel free to call us too.
