My name is Simon, I'm a web developer living in Bristol UK and spend (some of) my time sourcing vintage wares for a small business I run called Flipside. As something of a side project I often digitize a lot of the vintage printed matter I come in to contact with, mainly because I find it fascinating and feel some sense of duty to preserve it.

So this is me, The Salvagist. I'm currently working towards a modest collection of typographic posters - scanned/photographed and reproduced as digital prints.

I also post scans on Instagram, usually smaller more ephemeral design finds.

Do you have a fondness for digitising vintage prints?

I'd love to hear from you! Whether you want to be involved in The Salvagist project, or if you just want to share your own process in digitizing vintage prints, please do - I'd be happy to chat. If you use Telegram messenger, you can drop me a line on there, or send me an email.
