A note from the Art Shay Postcard Club
We send a beautiful postcard to you. We will put the postcard club stamp on this card by hand. It will travel through the mail system and get stamped, dated, scanned, and run through its myriad of machines before it gets to you; this is by design. We want these cards to reflect a bit of a life well traveled, as Art's life was. If they arrive a little rough around the edges that's ok; Art was a bit rough around the edges too. This process will also make each card unique; like Art. We hope you enjoy your postcard for what it is - a postcard - with a great Art Shay image.
If your card arrives and it is severely damaged just let us know. We will make things right.
If you love Art Shay’s work and would like a more pristine or even signed print, we welcome you to visit our lovely galleries - Monroe Gallery of Photography in Santa Fe, New Mexico, or Gallery Victor Armendariz in Chicago.
We have updated our Terms of Service as of March 17, 2019.
