What inspired you to build this site?

I began designing prayer cards on my computer years ago, my first prayer cards were rather plain until I started collecting antique holy cards. I made them as gifts for my family and friends. I felt that these antique holy card images and prayer cards were too beautiful to keep to myself and I wanted to share them with the world. My husband encouraged me to start a web site. He taught me web design and I created Holy Reflections web site. Although, I designed and built this site, I am an instrument and a servant of the Lord. This site does not belong to me, it belongs to the one I serve. God is my mentor and my inspiration.

Do you accept requests for custom prayer cards to be made?

Unfortunately, the answer is no. This website, my spiritual life and home life keep me extremely busy so much so that I am unable to accommodate custom orders.

How long have you been collecting antique holy cards? How many antique holy cards do you have in your collection?

I have been collecting antique holy cards since May 2005. Currently, I have over one thousand antique and vintage holy cards in my collection. In addition, I have a small collection of antique First Communion certificates as well.

What is the difference between an antique and vintage holy card?

Some collectors might disagree but as a general rule, antique is 100 years old or more and vintage is at least 25 years old.

 

BACK TO QUESTIONS

 

I have antique holy cards, what is the best way to perverse and store them?

I have found that the best way to preserve and store your antique holy cards is by purchasing archival safe {acid free} baseball card plastic sleeves. These plastic sleeves can be inserted into a binder. The binder{s} then can be stored in a Rubbermaid type of container to protect them from water damage. The Rubbermaid type of container should be kept in a dry dark cool place because heat can melt the plastic sleeves that the holy cards are stored in. If you choose to display or frame your antique holy cards I suggest framing a scanned image of the original instead because over time sun light exposure can fade the colors on the card.

 

Note: Please do not use scotch tape to adhere your precious paper holy cards to an album. Scotch tape not only attracts bugs and rodents to eat away at your treasure but the adhesive on the tape will eat away at your treasure too.
