I am the VERY FIRST on ETSY and anywhere else that I can find on the internet, to create images and substantial art on ANTIQUE PLAYER PIANO PAPER!! Be the first of your friends to own one or before the this paper becomes extinct!! :-)
Yep!! You read correctly! I am selling art on authentic player piano paper. You will get an unframed, vintage art, collage or print of original art by Debi on an actual piece of
vintage player piano paper.
You are purchasing a print ONLY for an 8" x 10" frame on actual vintage player piano paper! There is no frame or underpaper included. I ship using a sturdy cardboard backing. Also, there will be NO watermark on your piece!!
Shipping: I only charge for your first piece! So if you buy 3 prints, you'll only be charged shipping for one! Don't you just have to have more than one anyway?! :-)
Okay, Okay, some of you out there are wayyyyy too young to remember the player pianos of the past. I'll admit it, even in my day they were a novelty in an ice-cream parlor at the beach! :-) I feel so sad that these wonderful machines are truly becoming extinct. I found some rolls of the paper in an antique shop and thought they would make beautiful prints. So I RESCUED them to give them a new life! After much experimenting, with flaking, unfurling, etc… I have finally mastered it! Whew! It is a lot of work, but I think the result is worth it, I hope you do too!
This paper has been rolled up for anywhere between 50 to 100 years. So I have to go through a number of steps to create these pieces for you. The paper must be unfurled, then treated so it doesn't fall apart while printing and painting. Each design is hand colored and painted to enhance the vintage look of the paper. You will receive the aged brown/tan color unless you choose to purchase another color.
The great thing about this paper is that it has holes in it (bad for me! It is hard to work with!) So you can lay another color underneath - I call this the underpaper. It looks great with simply white paper behind it, but you could experiment with different underpaper colors. (see pics)
This piece is perfect for an 8" x 10" frame. Each print is one of a kind (OOAK), for the holes in the paper are different for each work, and the hand painted surface is different for every piece. No two are exactly alike, however, they go very well together hanging in a grouping. I will also make sure your prints match each other if you order more than one.
The colors may appear differently due to your computer's monitor.
Please contact me with any questions you may have! I will add new designs weekly.
Hope you enjoy!

Frequently Asked Questions
Are your prints on real antique paper?
Some of my prints are on authentic antique paper, and some are on reproduction antique paper. Please read my listings. I clearly state if the print is on actual antique paper or on reproduction paper.
There are reasons I use reproduction backgrounds on some listings. You'll have a choice of sizes, I simply don't have enough of a particular type of antique paper, and I can offer reproduction prints more cost effectively than real antique paper.
Now, there are still prints on real antique paper, just read the descriptions before deciding on your print.
Why do some of your prints have a white border?
That would be for framing your print. Only my reproduction prints have the white border.
The antique paper prints (like the player piano paper, old dictionary pages, antique ledger pages) do not have the white border around the print.....because it is printed directly onto the antique paper....duh!! :-)
Can I buy your prints in various sizes?
Only the REPRODUCTION prints at this time (unless specifically stated in some of my authentic antique paper listings). Since some of my listings are reproduction backgrounds, I can offer them in many different sizes, from 5"x7" to 36"x48"! Again, if it were actual antique paper, how would I get it that big?? Really? :-)
Do you use real antique player piano paper for your prints?
Yep, for my player piano prints, it is actual antique player piano paper!!
I see an image of yours I like but I don't see a listing for the background I like?
You can order ANY of my images on ANY of my backgrounds! If you don't see the combination listed, convo me and I'll set it up for you! So you CAN order ANY image on ANY background!! Easy, right?? :-)
