WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A
REPRODUCTION/REPRO and
a RESTORED PAPER DOLL?
If you wish to copy/paste for your own reference, you may.

Since I get this question now and then, and there are a lot of interpretations floating about the net about What's a Reproduction and What's a Restored Paper Doll?
I give you my interpretation here:
 
A "Reproduction"  (or "Repro") (or "copy") is any reprinting of an earlier published piece.
This can be done several ways:

1. A simple copy-scan of the original publication with no alterations or clean-ups which is copied/printed out in the original size.
   Any collector or dealer who has a vintage book could do this at a copy shop or using a home printer, using public domain titles. One must be cautious in buying poor copies or even worse, copies of copies which greatly reduces quality of the final print.

2. A fully re-published book with all the bells and whistles of copyright registration  at the Library of Congress, paying royalties to the subjects and/or original publisher if the copyright is currently active, and with bar codes and ISBN on the back ... could be reproduced "as is" or be a cleaned up version.
   These books may be done in the original size, but more likely republished in a smaller version than the original publication. For instance, Paper Studio Press, does cleaned up reproductions of vintage titles as commercially published titles, with copyright registration and all.

3. What I do is to scan vintage paper dolls in high resolution, send to my computer, to clean up and repair the art as needed.
    This can mean just brightening the whites and colors or many, many hours of artwork which could include;
    -repainting damaged areas, 
    -repainting backgrounds,
    -retitling to save confusion among books which have the same names as given by the original publishers. 
    -rearranging-reformatting to fit my books to be 8.5" x 11" when finished.
    - Adding new tabs.
    - Adding new outlines for clarity in cutting.
    - Adding new backgrounds.

    Sometimes I work from cut sets so that's another whole process, to make an attractive presentation that is near, but not exactly like the original publication.
    If you get very technical, once I have done any alteration at all, such as moving titles, or re-arranging components to fit my format, or adding descriptive copy to the cover, or adding supplementary photos, etc. it becomes a restoration PLUS. Or an "ALTERED" or "MAKE-OVER" Book. This is why it's good to read my descriptions on this website where I explain most of what's been done to result in the finished  paper doll book or sheets or cards.
 
Whichever finished product I make, the art from the original publication is always "restored" to some greater or lesser degree, so I use that term to describe my products derived from vintage sources.
 
It's important for sellers of reproductions of any kind to honestly describe their resultant product...and not all do that...especially on eBay. Be sure and look for the word "Reproduction" "Repro" or "Copy." Most sellers use the word "Vintage" but you have to read carefully to be sure it IS the vintage item and not a copy/reproduction of some sort.
 
- When I say original ART I mean actual artwork painted by the original artist....which is a real treat to find and have.
- When I say original or vintage publication I mean the vintage book published by the first publisher of the book or paper doll.
    It's usually these vintage books, from which I do the restoration work...as they are available and much easier to acquire, though I have been fortunate to find some Original ART and what a joy it is to see the brilliance of the original paintings as compared to a commercial printing.
 
I have put a description of the restoration process on my website to give you a more visual idea of what goes into a "restoration."
