1. Reprints of images from our collections are available. All reproductions are digital. Prints are made using Epson Premium Photo Paper. Price is dependent on type of print and size (see below).
2. Because use fees are a major source of income for preserving our collections, photograph reproductions are subject to this fee, which may be negotiable. Each additional or alternate use of the image(s) requires new negotiation of rights and payment of an additional use fee. For more on our use policy, please see our use fee page.
3. Photo duplicates can be mailed for a minimum of $7.00 per shipment.
4. We can often expedite orders for a rush fee. Rush fees are double the total order amount. For more about our fee schedule and turn around time for photographic orders, please see below.
5. You, the user, are responsible for conforming to the laws governing copyright and libel. While some of our material is out of copyright protection, we still retain property rights to those items. Please keep in mind that we do not hold copyright to everything in our repository. If you should select an image for which we do not hold copyright or property rights, we will make every effort to direct you to the right party. For more on copyright, see the Copyright Management Center and their checklist.
