How did PC Design's line of Pulp Fiction Postcards begin?
Take a look at my background page, which details how I got started in this business, an example of a hobby (collecting vintage paperbacks) that turned into a business!

I want to find other products using your Pulp images. Where can I find Pulp Products?
PC Design has recently opened its own ONLINE STORE called PULP ART featuring many products using our Pulp Fiction images! We carry Clocks, Infant/Toddler items, Mousepads, Mugs, Lunch Boxes, T-Shirts, Tote Bags and other items available directly from our Store. In the future we plan on adding more products and more images.
If you don't see a Pulp image on a product you'd like, let us know via email! We'll be happy to add additional images to our product lines.
Note, too, that you may see several Pulp images not in our current postcard line. You are not seeing things! It's just that images like Pick-Up, Blonde Baggage, and The Honeymoon Habit are too good not to use!

I want to buy a poster using your Pulp images. Where can I find one?

What does your bookmark look like?
To see our bookmark, front and back, click here. Ok, so how do you get one? I don't sell these bookmarks; rather, I give one out with each retail postcards or keychains order. (Wholesale customers don't despair: I often add one to your box of postcards as well.) If you would really like a bookmark--and don't want to buy anything--send me a SASE large enough to hold a 2"x7" bookmark and I'll be glad to return one to you.

What do the back sides of your Pulp Fiction Postcards look like?
 To see samples of our short and tall postcard backs, click here.

Now for a little explanation on our postcard sizes: First, note that they come in two sizes -- the same width of 4.25", but two different vertical sizes: a 'short' height of 6.0" and a 'tall' height of 6.8". Why two sizes? Because originally the first U.S. paperbacks were cut and released in approximately the shorter size (I reduce the size a bit to make this shorter postcard  conform to the U.S. Postal limit for 'standard postcard size'). In the 1950s the taller size format began to appear with such publishers as Gold Medal, Signet, Monarch, Ballantine, as well as others. And by the 1960s the publishing industry had adopted the taller format as its standard.

We release our postcards in approximately the size as the original paperbacks appeared: the short size represents those paperbacks initially released by such the early publishers as Pocket Books, Dell, Popular Library, Avon, Berkeley, Ace and Pyramid. I also use this size ratio for postcards from the early paperback 'digests' of the 1940s-1950s, which in real life were approximately 5.5" wide x 7.5" tall. A few of the early digests (they had their 'heyday' from the latter '40s through mid-'50s) which have been reduced to postcard size are: Spoiled Lives, Arizona Round-Up Operation Interstellar, Margie is for Loving, Girls Out of Hell! and Marriage Can Wait.
You can see which postcards are short in size, like this: pc-001.jpg (2749 bytes) and which are TALL in size, like this: pc-005.jpg (3752 bytes) by the vertical differences in the images displayed on any of our postcard and catalog pages.

Are PC Design's Pulp Postcard images free of copyright restrictions?
No they are not. Briefly, these images are copyrighted by me and are not 'free.' I encourage licensed usage of my images, and if you would like further information about the process involved in licensing one or more of these Pulp images, take a look at the next two questions and responses.

I want to license these Pulp images for my own product(s) or advertising material. What should I do?
Feel free to contact me about what you have in mind. I would like more information about your product(s) or interests in advertising & collateral material, territory, licensing requirements and your contact information. Click here to email me.

In addition to the 312 Pulp images we have on our line of postcards, we have other images available for licensing. Click here to view these images and for more details.

Are you looking for other products to license your Pulp images for?
Absolutely! I would be delighted to talk with you about your interest in my line of Pulp images and how you might use one or more of them for your own product(s). Briefly, there are two types of license agreements I work out with companies:
-- One-time license: you are using the image(s) as part of your promotional material, as as an illustration for a book, CD, or other item for which a one-time royalty charge is appropriate. Royalty is paid one time.

-- On-going license: you are using the image(s) on your product(s) on an-going basis. Royalty is paid on a regular basis over the life of the license agreement.

Both types of agreements run for a specified number of years, specify a product or products, a territory or region, restrictions about changing the image, and both at a royalty payment or fee which we agree upon. Among the items I would want to know about your interest are:
-- What product(s) will these images be used with?
-- Are you a new or established business? How many years in business?
-- How will you be selling these products? Online, retail stores, mail-order, or ??

Kindly contact PC Design for further information.

Am I free to copy and display your Pulp Fiction images on my own web site?
That depends on what you want do and on what site you want to do it. I am always happy to discuss use of my Pulp images being displayed (with appropriate credit and link) on other web sites, but would like to have you contact first before  you just download and use any image(s) from my web site. Contact PC Design for further inquiry via email by clicking here.

How do I go about becoming a dealer? How do I buy on a wholesale basis?
If you are a wholesale/dealer with an upcoming, newly opened or established business, and would like to sell my line of Pulp Fiction Postcards, I encourage you to contact me! I have many dealers around the U.S. who do well selling these campy cards!
You can find out details or inquire more about being a dealer by clicking on one of these links:

Are any other Pulp Fiction T-Shirts available with these Pulp images on them?
Unfortunately not. My one-time t-shirt manufacturer stopped making these T's and the only available stock I currently have can be see on my web Pulp Fiction T-Shirts web page. These t-shirts are available only a retail basis. Look at the next question and answer to find out why. I also have an ONLINE STORE called PULP ART that sells t-shirts for boys and girls, juniors and adult sizes. Email me if you don't see a Pulp image you would like on a t-shirt there.

Are any other Pulp Fiction Keychains available with these Pulp images on them?
Unfortunately not. Just like for t-shirts described above, my one-time keychain manufacturer stopped making these 12 different style and the only available stock I currently have can be see on my Pulp Fiction Keychains web page. Note that these keychains are available both on a retail and wholesale basis, since I have a large quantity of each keychain.
For wholesale information on Keychains, click here.

I'm a dealer. Can I purchase Pulp Fiction T-Shirts to sell in my store?
Unfortunately not. The only quantity of T's I have is shown on my Pulp Fiction T-Shirts web page. There aren't enough shirts to be able to sell either at discount or in quantity and I currently have no source for a further supply.

Yes I do!

I love your postcards! How do I become a sales rep. for your card line?
Send me an email and tell me something about yourself: I currently have a number of sales reps. around the country who sell the line of Pulp Fiction Postcards on my behalf and am happy to discuss you selling these postcards, provided I do not already have a sales rep. in your area.

Here are some questions I would ask you: Are you currently a sales rep.? How long? What territory or region of the U.S. (or other country)? What other product(s) do you represent? What is your full contact information? What is your current commission rate?

I want to exchange web site links. How do I do that?
I am always interested in exchanging URL links, provided you have a web site devoted to the general areas of vintage and pulp fiction paperbacks, cover art, and so on. If so, kindly click here to send me email and request exchanging web site links.

What is your return policy?
Fairly standard I would guess, though it has only come up a few times since I have been in the postcard selling business! If you are unhappy with your purchase, contact me at PC Design and let me know what the problem is. If your product is in an "as new" condition, I am happy to have you return it and to refund your purchase price. But kindly contact me first. Thanks!
