Why Buy From Us?
Three simple reasons: 1) We are passionate about photographs, 2) we have assembled the largest collection of original press photos available on eBay, and 3) we are fiercely committed to total customer satisfaction. Every team member here at Historic Images Inc is committed to taking care of our customers. Our leadership team is constantly seeking out unique archives and photo collections to ensure you have access to unique items across a wide area of subjects and from different parts of the country. Once we take possession of the photos, we take great care of them throughout their lifecycle of prepping, scanning, captioning, and storing. When you purchase from us, we "sandwich" your photo between two pieces of cross-corrugated cardboard, enclose it in plastic, and send it your way. We only sell original press photos on eBay, so bid now before its gone!

Q: Do you combine shipping and invoices?
A: Multiple photos won on the same seller ID combine automatically through the eBay checkout process. If you encounter problems with this, send us a message via eBay messaging and we will send you an invoice. Per eBay policy, we cannot combine items won on our different seller IDs (e.g. if you win one photo on historicimages05 and one photo on historicimages01, we cannot combine them for a single shipping charge).
Q: How quickly do you ship the items once paid?
A: We typically ship within one business day after your payment clears. If you do not receive an "order shipped" email from us by the close of the second business day from submitting payment, please e-mail us via eBay messaging.
Q: Why do some photos have a "HAVIdigital" or "Historic Images" watermark on them?
A: This is a digital watermark we use to protect our images. It is NOT printed on photo.
Q: What are your office hours?
A: eBay for us is a business, and a very fun one to be in! We are open M-F 9 to 5 (CST). Therefore, we do not return e-mails and phone calls over the weekend. We observe the following holidays: New Years Day, Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving and the day after Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
Q: Where did these originate?
A: These photographs are from various newspaper archives, from locations around the country including Boston, Detroit, Tampa, Chicago, Denver, Seattle, and more.
Q: Do you re-list items (in case I miss an auction ending)?
A: As a general rule, items that receive no bids are moved to our store as a fixed-price listing and at a higher price than the starting auction price.
Q: Do you leave feedback?
A: Yes--we always leave feedback for buyers. Our software monitors when our buyers leave us feedback, then notifies us that we can leave feedback for the buyer. Rest assured, if you leave feedback, we will do the same!
Q: Can the photos be cleaned?
A: Yes. Grease pencil markings can be wiped off with a dry paper towel (most of which we have already removed). Permanent marker and "painted areas" can be removed with a baby wipe, Clorox wipe, or denatured alcohol, but we advise you to use extreme caution when doing so. Photo cleaning may be done, but it is at your own risk, and photos which are cleaned by a customer may not be returned.
Q: Do we make mistakes?
A: We get this question quite a bit, and the answer is a resounding YES!!! :-) Between all of our eBay stores, we ship out hundreds of packages a day, and occasionally we do indeed goof. We guarantee that nobody in the eBay world tries harder to make things right! If you haven't received your shipment in the timeframe you expected, or if you get the wrong item, please let us know immediately. We ship packages within 2 business days of receipt of payment and we always send an "Item Shipped" e-mail. If you've paid via PayPal and a couple of days go by without receiving an "Item Shipped" e-mail, please let us know. If we send you the wrong item, we will send your correct item along with a pre-paid envelope to return the wrong item. We strive very hard to provide the best customer service, so please just let us know if there is a problem with your order.
