How is this product sold?
You are interested in these vintage magazines and photos and want to buy them. At the top in the menu, click on ‘order’ and choose one of the two types of USB sticks with magazines. The content on both USB sticks is the same; it is just a different type of USB stick. The free USB stick with photos is automatically added to the order, you do not have to do anything. A few days later, you will receive your ordered USB sticks by regular mail. You connect the USB stick to your computer, laptop, phone or tablet and you can read and look at the magazines and photos (together good for about 50GB).
If you purchase a USB stick with magazines between 1 March 2021 and 28 February 2022, you will in any case purchase a USB stick with 650 magazines, 400 of which are the basic package, delivered immediately. Between 1 March 2021 and 28 February 2022, the 250 remaining magazines will be delivered to you via downloads; these 250 magazines are part of the 650-page package you purchased. During this period, an e-mail containing a link will be sent to you approximately every 6 weeks. Via this link you can download a total of 250 magazines and add them to your USB stick.
The range will be expanded by 250 issues each year from February 2022. The modalities of subscribing to it shall be communicated in due time.
You can choose between two types of USB sticks; a normal USB stick or one with two outputs (in addition to the normal output, it also has an output for smartphones, tablets and e-readers). Note: you cannot create an account. It is unnecessary, you can only buy one product anyway, and for the rest we stick to the familiar e-mail traffic.
Can you repeat that concisely?
If you purchase our product, you will immediately receive a USB stick with 400 magazines, and another 250 magazines spread over the period from 01/03/2021 to 28/02/2022. You will also immediately receive an additional free USB stick with 17,700 photos. If you need further information, please contact us. See also the product offer !
To how many magazines was the basic 400 package extended on 30 November 2021?
502 pieces (this information is updated regularly).
So now you immediately receive a USB stick with 502 magazines; and another 148 via downloads.
What can I expect as content?
We offer you the magazines as they were originally published. No censorship is applied. Even if there is a meaningless one-off publicity insertion, this will also be digitised. So you receive the magazine exactly as it was published at the time.
Thus, we are never liable for the content, nor does it reflect our opinion, as you may find articles in some magazines that could get you into trouble today.
On the USB stick, the magazines are arranged in first order by title, and in second order by date.
What about the language partitioning?
If we consider the complete 650 periodicals, then the French and Dutch-language magazines form the main part, each accounting for about 43%; the remaining part is taken up by German and English with a slight predominance of the German-language magazines. This proportional trend will continue in the coming years.
In what condition are the magazines?
All magazines were digitally restored very thoroughly. Some are more than 100 years old and yet we present them to you in a very pleasant readable and enjoyable form.
In some rare cases, it was impossible to remove the traces of the restoration. Please note that 95% of our offer is in a digitally flawless condition. There are also some magazines in which some pages are missing; you can find information about this in the magazines themselves
The magazines were digitised at 500 dpi, which is very high and guarantees flawless quality.
Do you have to buy the usb stick to buy merchandising items?
No, the merchandising articles are separate from the USB sticks with magazines. You buy them as a stand-alone item.
What about privacy?
As we only have one article, it is not useful for us to further analyse your surfing behaviour or interests via cookies or similar means. You determine the extent to which you want to stay in touch with this website; by participating in ‘blog discussions’, expressing your opinion, indicating which magazines you prefer, …
So we do not need information about who you are or where you come from.
Are the payments secure?
All payments are made via Mollie. Zij verwerken de betaling via uw bank of via een ander betalingsorganisme. Mollie is virtually the largest internet payment platform in Europe. They work with the big web shops. So your payments are always made in a secure environment.
What is the delivery period?
The delivery time can vary greatly; it depends on the number of orders we receive. Under normal circumstances, if the order is sent the day after, it takes about one week, which is due to the service at bpost. If we are unexpectedly overwhelmed, delivery times may be longer, in which case we will keep you informed. If you have any concerns, feel free to send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
