  1. Is it possible to purchase a header in print? I am particularly interested in the two pertaining to tobacco. Thank you.

  2. Ms. Stephens,
    We’re glad that you like our header images.

    Yes. It’s possible to purchase the images from which we created our headers. We can send you the digital file and you can print the images yourself, or we can make prints for you here at the library.

    My colleagues in Wilson Library’s Research and Instructional Services handle such requests. Please email them at wilsonlibrary.unc.edu

    Best,
    John Blythe
    Assistant Curator
