- Can appreciate in value and usually do.
- Higher sense of nostalgia
- Usually more expensive than equivalent reprint
- Often never issued as Reproduction images
- Unique styles that were never used in theaters
- Easy to swap out old posters for new ones due to low cost
- Dimensions are often off by as much as an inch
- Colors are sometimes dull/ image seems out of focus
