Allmogens began as a non-profit public education project with the aim of preserving and bringing to life our Swedish history and our Nordic cultural heritage. We still have that goal. To fund this work, in 2017 we started selling historical prints in our shop, with a focus on historical maps. The history behind the works, quality and exclusivity are the focus of everything we do. Our office is located in Sidensjö parish in the heart of Ångermanland.
All our historical motifs are carefully selected and scanned from our own collections and other archives in Sweden and Europe. We are continuously expanding our collections.
About the products
We print our posters and wall maps on heavy 200 g/m2 uncoated premium paper with a matt finish without reflections. The off-white paper is certified age-resistant and free of acid and optical brighteners (OBA), so it won't yellow over time. This is one of the major differences between our prints and those of our competitors, who almost always use a paper with added optical brighteners. This makes the paper whiter, but it also causes the paper to yellow over time as the added whitener breaks down.
If you mount and hang your historic Allmogens print correctly, i.e. in a frame behind glass (preferably glass with a UV filter) and away from direct sunlight, you can expect the print to retain its beautiful colours for generations.
We work hard to ensure that ordinary, working people can decorate their homes with meaningful, historical motifs at no cost. Because we have our hands on the entire printing process and logistics, we can offer the same and often significantly higher quality printing and paper than some of our newer competitors, but often at half the price. That's the difference when you cut out the middleman.
Prices vary depending on the size of the poster/wall map. VAT is included in the price.

Yes we can! We're adding to our collections as fast as we can and with your help we can prioritise the right subjects and map areas. Contact us and tell us what you're looking for and we'll do our best to get it for you.
Passepartout is not included with our historical prints. However, all our historical maps have a passepartout digitally integrated, i.e. they have a white margin around them that frames the maps in an ideal way. This white border can be wider on two sides of the motif because the old motif may have a different format than today's standard frame sizes. The white border has the following minimum dimensions for each print size:
21×30: 2 cm
30×40: 3 cm
40×50: 3 cm
50×70: 4 cm
70×100: 5 cm
100×140: 7 cm
Some of our motifs are up to 500 years old and often digitally scanned at high resolution. However, the advanced age and the technology used to create the subject means that they may naturally be more blurred and out of focus than you would expect from modern techniques. All our products have undergone our rigorous scrutiny and are of the highest quality. We have judged that the motif looks good for all sizes available for purchase. Cropping may differ slightly between the available sizes for optimum fit.

Returns / Complaints
You always have 365 days right of withdrawal when you buy goods on Allmogens.se, except on our almanac where 30 days right of withdrawal applies. This means that you have the right to cancel your purchase by notifying Allmogens within 365 days from the date you or your agent received the ordered goods (withdrawal period).
The right of withdrawal does not apply to personalised posters printed to order. When ordering goods for which the right of withdrawal does not apply, you will receive clear information about this. Companies do not have a right of withdrawal either.
The goods must be returned in the same condition as when they were delivered to you. Please note that all our historical prints are delivered sealed with a sticker over the tissue paper in which it is wrapped. Once the seal is broken, your right of withdrawal expires. Returns with broken or open seals are invalid.
We apply a full depreciation if the product is not in saleable new condition.
The return cost is 49 SEK and will be deducted from the credit of your repurchase.
If you wish to make a return, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and state this together with your name, order number and the items you wish to return including their product name and quantity. We will then email you a digital return slip which you print out and tape to the parcel, which must then be handed in at any DHL Service Point within 14 days of the date you notified us of your return.
The return must be sent in the original packaging, and returned in the same condition as it was when it was delivered to you. We will apply a full depreciation if the product being returned has a broken seal and/or is not in saleable new condition.
