Custom Designed Photo Collage Prints
Contemporary to historical photos can be displayed as more than just a photo. A custom print can include multiple photos, information contextualizing the photo(s) like "The Blade" nameplate, captioning, high resolution page detail images featuring article snippets, and more. Custom designed prints allow you to personalize the award-winning work of Blade writers, photographers, and artists.
Examples of Blade photography perfect for custom posters.
■ Paul Tantardini Tribute
Toledo hockey legend Paul Tantardini won four Governor's Cups with the famed Toledo Goaldiggers. We were contacted to help memorialize this "Tanner" and were able to produce two dynamic prints that span his career through photos, articles, and quotes from Blade coverage through the 70s, 80s.

■ Early 20th Century USPS Delivery Man, Arthur Barnes
"Rural Free Delivery" revolutionized the United States Postal Service, for the first time allowing "delivery of every man's mail to every man's mail."
One of those early mail carriers was Arthur Barnes. We were contacted by the family to help, first, locate a photo of Mr. Barnes that was featured on a Toledo Magazine Page, and then repackage the information highlighting Mr. Barnes while still featuring the original page but maintaining the historical context of the early 20th century.
■ Truman Claytor, Toledo's sole NCAA champion
A key player in the Kentucky Wildcats’ run to the national title in 1978, the 1975 Scott High School graduate scored eight points and added three assists in Kentucky’s 94-88 victory over Duke. Claytor is the only Toledo-area high school graduate to earn a national title in men’s basketball.
This is a case where The Blade Vault can use third party content, such as this photo from the Associated Press. This article ran in The Blade with this photo and we are able to transform it into this unique, clean reproduction of the published content.
So remember, if you see a photo in the paper that isn't by The Blade, you can still always get a print.
If it's by The Blade you can reprint and/or a custom designed collage style print,
