Vintage Christmas Cards

Tuesday, December 7, 2010
I enjoy looking at all the Christmas cards out in the gift shops and stores, but I especially enjoy some of the vintage cards. Love the eye candy. The credit for these images goes to  Royce Bair. The images were scanned from his personal collection and the color restored (digitally remastered). He also retouched it to remove scratches, cracks, smudges and age spots. This is typically about a 3 hour process.
