Invitation to Designers
The Philadelphia Print Shop cordially invites you to visit our new 2,400 square foot gallery located in downtown Wayne. Formerly in Chestnut Hill, the shop has been called a Treasure Trove of History, with over 10,000 antique prints and maps curated over 40 years.
COME IN AND BROWSE OUR EXTENSIVE COLLECTION OF FINE ANTIQUE PRINTS, INCLUDING:
Known nationally for excellent service for nearly 40 years, we specialize in original antique prints, maps and fine art prints dating from the 16th through mid-20th centuries. As the new owner working with two long-term Print Shop employees, we have experience collaborating closely with designers, helping you choose appropriate prints and maps for your projects.
Browse our new website, but be aware that it represents only a fraction of our inventory; we continue to add more all the time. As a designer, we offer you a Trade Discount. Come visit the gallery or contact us to learn more. We would love to hear from you!
