Prices for reprints ordered online
The Daily Star does have some original negatives of Tucson Citizen photos taken between 1950-2000 and Daily Star photos taken between 1980-2000. There is a $25 fee per photo for retrieving negatives from storage and scanning into digital form. We cannot guarantee that we can locate the photos or fill the orders in a timely fashion. Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
Photos are available in standard sizes, such as 8x10 or 11x14, or as gallery-style, which retains the dimensions of the photo as it actually appeared in the newspaper. For example, a tall vertical photo printed on an 10-inch gallery print will be nearly 10-inches tall, but may be only 5-inches wide with extra white space on either side of the printed image.
