Photo Prints

The MHS offers the option of purchasing archival color prints of items within our collection. We offer prints in two different sizes: 8.5 x 11 inches and 13 x 19 inches. The final print size will be determined by the size of the original and the requirements of the order.

Prints are charged at the same rate as high-resolution digital images:

$45.00/image for prints with existing digital master files

$60.00/image for prints created from the original item

Print images are produced in-house by our digitization staff and made available for pick-up or mailed via USPS. If sent by mail, an additional $10.00 shipping and handling fee will apply.

Orders typically take between 4-6 weeks from the date of order approval to delivery.

To request a print of an item in our collection, place a Reproduction/Use Permission request through Portal1791 and select one of the two sizes available. Use ABIGAIL, the collection guides, or online resources to locate the item(s) -- or the collection in which the item of which you desire is contained -- and submit a separate request for each item through Portal1791. Your request will be reviewed and an invoice will be prepared for your approval and payment.
