From time to time, we receive shocked e-mails from customers who see the black objects in the corners of our images and think that we are using pushpins to photograph the items! Please know that we would NEVER use pushpins on posters! We are actually using magnets to hold the posters to a "magnetic wall" so that they are never damaged.

The biggest thing to know is that while some of the magnets we use resemble "pushpins", it is only because at times we have used them combined with magnets (the pins are removed and we glue a small magnet to the pushpin head which makes the magnets easier to grip). But we NEVER use pins or any type of adhesive to hold down items we auction (which is why sometimes you can see added magnets helping to flatten something, or an item that doesn't lay completely flat).

We would much rather have a less than perfect photo than take even the SLIGHTEST chance of damaging an item during photography!
