Item details

Ephemera belonging to a WWI French soldier, Marcel Lepee, held as a prisoner of war. His family kindly made available some letters, photos, postcards and his combatant id card, and in so doing, preserve history and allow us to peek into the past and the lives of real people affected by the war. This collection is a collage of his military photo id card, two POW postcards, authentic with stampings, and the correspondence/letters to his wife, all in French. There is also a photograph of their destroyed home in Lille, France that was bombed shortly after he began serving. He had 5 children at the time and another on the way, but fortunately his family was away from the home at the time of the bombing due to an illness in the family. These images are kept as I found them with only changes to the sizing and sharpness. The sheets are ready for instant download and I also included their story, both in French and English.

FAQs

There are limits to how you may use the digital images / files. Purchase does not transfer the copyright of these images and all rights are reserved for StudioOnGlore. Print and enjoy these images endlessly in your own personal projects! However, if you sell, share, or in any way distribute, your projects (what I will refer to as light commercial use) you can use up to 200 prints per image. Selling, sharing or distributing the digital format by any means is restricted. See StudioOnGlore Shop Announcements for the full Terms of Use and some examples of what is permitted and what is not.

If you use the default in many photo and graphic tools to print these images, they will likely alter the size because they will "fit" to the page. When there is a pdf file, you can open by right-clicking on the file you want to print and then selecting "open with" Adobe Reader. If you don't have Adobe Reader, you can download it for free. Once you open the image in Adobe Reader, select File --> Print, then set to "Actual Size" and make sure the proper orientation is selected - portrait or landscape. The orientation will vary from item to item so make sure you check the image. After you make the selections, check the preview. If all of the images are in the clear, not gray, area, click the [Print] button.

To print actual size if you are a Microsoft user and don't want to use the pdf file method above, is to open the jpg file by right-clicking on the file and selecting "open with" Paint. Once open, select File --> Print --> Print Preview --> Page Setup. Select the appropriate orientation, put zeros in all of the margins (Paint will fill in the default for your printer). Next select "Adjust to 100% normal size". Note: If the X in the gray preview area is not completely within the dotted lines, it is ok, however you should test print because there may be blank pages printed and you don't want to waste premium paper. Select [OK] and then [Print]. *This is meant for collage sheets and not 8.5x11 images which you would print to fit page.
