Normal 0 false false false EN-GB X-NONE X-NONE These posters are printed under a licence to The Newcastle Poster Company, from the National Railway Museum and Science and Society Picture Library who own the copyright on all the images. Further reproduction of these images is strictly forbidden under copyright law. There are many other people selling copies of these images on e bay however, as the licencing is very strictly controlled , and only one licence granted per image for each size , we suspect that most sellers must be breaking copyright law. By way of a royalty payment , the Newcastle Poster Company makes a contribution to supporting the work and collections of the National Railway Museum in York and the SSPL in London so by purchasing from us , you are contributing to their work and collections . This may not be the case with other image providers on e bay . The reproductions of the original posters have been cleaned digitally to remove creases, rips , spots , water marks and damaged areas, and the colours have been restored as closely as possible to what we believe to have been the artists original intentions. The Posters are either litho printed or produced on photographic quality proofing presses . The Multi directional print heads on these, ensures continuous tone and colour, whilst eliminating any banding or unwanted tone which is common when inkjet or laser printing is employed. This system produces prints which are faithful reproductions at virtual litho quality . They are produced on high quality 200 g.s.m. lumi-silk paper, and are printed to a total outside dimension size of 50 cm x 70 cm which are designed to fit a standard European manufactured frame available from many retailers including IKEA and B+Q .This considerably reduces the cost should you wish to frame the prints . The photographs of the original posters taken by the National Railway Museum , were undertaken over a number of years during which time , cameras improved in their resolution . Some of the images from which we have worked are therefore of relatively low resolution, which means that not all poster images appear to be of the same “ crispness “ . There are some images which are simply of too low a resolution to make poster sized images possible Some of the original photographs were also taken, and therefore supplied to us , with different quantity of white border surrounding the “picture” part of the total image itself , and indeed some were taken with no surround on at all . Even the “ internal picture images “ themselves, as provided to us , are not exactly the same dimensions. We have opted therefore, to print with a white border around most of the posters , but this may not be exactly the same dimensions around each internal image. For the sake of standardisation and simplicity in framing however, the principal criterion used has been the absolute outside dimension of 50 cm by 70 cm . Posters will be dispatched within 48 hours of payment being received and will be sent out in a robust cardboard tube to ensure the poster does not get damaged. If at all possible , we would be grateful if you could quote the image reference number in any correspondence. If you are not happy with the poster for any reason then a full refund will be given within 14 days of purchase. Please contact me before leaving feedback so I can resolve any issues you might have. Thanks for looking.
