Frequently Asked Questions

What is The Archives Store?
The Archives Store is an online gallery where individuals can browse and purchase a selection of fine art photography prints, portfolios, books and other items from The Archives collection.

What is The Archives?
The Archives is a company founded in 1994 by Joshua Greene (apprentice son of the world-celebrated photographer, Milton H. Greene) to keep, protect and restore his father’s photographic legacy. In the subsequent years, The Archives has grown to offer professional photo restoration services, fine art printing and image licensing as well as representing additional artists.

Do you make custom prints?
Yes, we do offer custom prints. Please contact us directly to discuss these options.

What if I don’t see a print I’m looking for?
You may also visit our licensing site. There you can log-in and browse all the images in our catalogue. You may create a personal image collection (aka lightbox), share that collection and request a license or a custom print of one or several of the many images you see there.

What if I am interested in licensing an image from The Archives rather than purchasing a print or another fine art product from the Archives Store?
Yes, we have thousands of images available for licensing. Please visit our licensing site. There you create a log-in, and browse our entire catalogue of available images. You can create a personal image collection (lightbox), share it and request to license any image you see there. If your desired use is for editorial (such as web, TV, or film uses), you will work directly with The Archives. If you are interested in commercial rights (such as products) to any images other than those of Marilyn Monroe, you will also work with The Archives.

If you are interested in commercial rights for the Marilyn Monroe images only, you should contact Authentic Brands Group. They are the exclusive representative for the works of Milton H. Greene.

What is the difference between limited, numbered and open editions?
Our limited editions are always confined to a predetermined and fixed number. After a limited edition has sold out, it will not be reintroduced in the same size or media. If The Archives decides to reintroduce the same image in a new edition, it will be identified as a second edition and be different than its predecessor. The Archives’ limited edition prints can be found in permanent museums, galleries and private collections worldwide. They are stamped, numbered, signed and come with a Certificate of Authenticity.

Numbered editions are not limited or confined to a fixed number. Each subsequent print is assigned the next available number in the edition. The Archives’ numbered editions are stamped, numbered, signed and come with a Certificate of Authenticity.

Open editions are unnumbered with an unlimited number of prints. They strike the perfect balance between our distinctive quality and affordability.

What is an exhibition print?
Exhibition prints are the most limited in quantity, thus the most rare group of our editions. The quantities vary dependent upon each edition, so reference the “Edition Prints” information section on each purchase page to get more detailed information about exhibition print edition quantities for a specific print. The purchaser also has the freedom to select the size (subject to quality) for exhibition prints. These are reserved for collectors that want the most valued print of any series.

What is a compilation?
A compilation is a term we use to describe items consisting of multiple photographs. Portfolios and books are examples of some of the items you may find in this product category.

Do you have other images available aside from those featured on this site?
Yes, if you are looking for something specific and you don’t see it here, you may also visit our sister site. There you can log-in and browse all the images in our catalogue. You may create a personal image collection (lightbox), share that collection and request a custom print of one or several of the many images you see there.
