Olde America Antiques and American Quilt Blocks have combined to form a new business: iVintageImages.
Olde America Antiques (OAA) was established by Susan and Jack Davis in 1988 as an antique business specializing in vintage postcards and paper ephemera. They opened a store in Bozeman, Montana, in 1990, the only store of its kind between Minneapolis and Spokane. Susan and Jack produced and hosted a National Park Antiques and Postcard Show at the Gallatin County Fairgrounds in Bozeman. This was the only national park-related antique show in the country. This national park antiques show was held annually for 6 years from 1993 and 1998. The show was very successful, but was discontinued because the internet was adversely affecting antique and collectible shows at that time. Olde America Antiques closed its shop in 2000, but continued selling collectible postcards and greeting cards to national parks. These cards were discontinued in 2005 because the paper stock was no longer available.
American Quilt Blocks (AQB) was established by Susan and Jack in 2004. This was one of the first companies to develop genuine 8-color giclee prints on cloth for quilters. AQB operated until July 2018, when the business was discontinued due to technical issues with the large-format printers. It is estimated that AQB produced more than 600,000 quilt blocks in 14 years. The quilt blocks were sold in 30 national parks and quilt shops throughout the country and around the world. Susan and Jack decided to take their business in a new direction when they could no longer print on cloth. They started iVintageImages in the fall of 2018.
iVintageImages was established so customers could download and print the images of their choice for a flat fee. iVintageImages currently has more than 2,500 ready-to-print images to choose from. More images, and categories, will added to the web site each week as time permits. Current categories include National Parks and Monuments, 50 States, and Topics A to Z. The site also contains custom designs created by Susan Davis. See the About Us page for more biographical information.
The image files on this site can be printed on cloth and on paper. Customers can create their own quilt blocks, greeting cards, home decor prints, and prints for scrapbooking. The image files have all been professionally adjusted for high quality reproduction. Links on "How to Print on Fabric" and "How to Make your own Greeting Cards" are posted under INFO - F.A.Q.
Let us know if you have any requests. We have an extensive collection of images in our collection and may be able to accommodate your requests.
We are a small business founded on quality and personal service and will be happy to assist you however we can. Thank you.
