Hey everybody,

I need your help. I've set my mind and heart on getting a few nice prints of some of Ken Marschall's magnificent Titanic paintings. I know that Transatlantic Designs is the place to turn to.

However, I'm facing some major communication difficulties with the company. My e-mails are either not answered at all or if I do get an answer some major questions are getting repeatedly ignored. So maybe you can help me out here?.

So far, the company has offered me high quality giclee prints in the price range of 300 to 400 USD. However the website also lists unsigned prints for about $25. Sadly, everytime I ask about those affordable prints my emails seem getting ignored. Which leads me to believe they either don't sell them anymore or they simply want to push more profitable sales.


So my burning, still unanswered, questions for you are:

Are those $25prints available at all? / Has anyone been able to get his/her hands on such a print?

What kind of prints are they? (giclee or lithograph?)

Are they available in scaled or original size?


I'm thankful for every bit of information I can get on this matter.

Hello There!

Welcome Aboard, you'll love this site, I sure do!
Transatlantic designs, huh? i reached out to the email given here (in august)
never got a reply, maybe because it's an older (I think) website, they don't really take requests anymore. Sorry!
If anyone can help more, I'd be happy to read

Somebody else here had the same question a while back on this also. I don't think they ever got it resolved either. I was wondering if he decided to retire from the overall general business. Always liked his work and thumb thru his co-authored books often. If you find an answer post it as some here would be interested. Good luck on your inquiry.

Hey everybody,

Thank you all for your moral support. It is almost impossible to get a quick response from TAD. Be prepared to wait anything from 1 to 4 weeks for a response, that is ... if you're lucky enough to get an answer at all.

My advice, make your e-mails short ... the chances for a response were highest when my e-mails were short ... Unfortunately, this still is no guarantee for an answer.

However, over the course of roughly 5 weeks I did manage to get and collect some information which I gladly share with you guys.....

Apparently they are still in business. So, if you want a reproduction of a Ken Marschall painting that is not listed on their (slightly outdated ) 2009-website, you need deep pockets.... because those paintings are only available as giclee reproductions ($295 - $395 each, depending on the size you want).

Unfortunately, if you are looking for more affordable paper prints in the price range of +/- $25 you can only choose from the prints listed on their website.
You still have to fill out their order form but instead of sending it by post you can make a scan or photo of it with your phone and send it back to them over e-mail.

.... Yep, that's about it .... all the information I was able to obtain in 5 weeks

I'm still a bit "in limbo" about how "professional" I believe their business is and how badly I want a Ken Marschall print hanging on my wall .... Given the pace of communication I'm a bit worried about how long it'll take them to ship out an order .... if you catch my drift

... Once upon a time, I had hoped they offer a $25-option for each of Ken's paintings, so I could purchase a few prints all at once and thereby making my flat a shrine to his art ... I guess this ain't gonna happen in the foreseeable future
