Can anyone suggest a source for reproductions of the Constitution, Bill of Rights and Declaration of Independance? I know they are in every gift shop in D.C. (wish I knew I need these when I was there last week!), but looking for a source to order size and quality suitable for framing for local attorney's office. He is also interested in obtaining a print of the U.S. Capitol blueprints.
Here's a decent price from the National Park Service:


Documents of Freedom

Authentic reproductions of the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution of the United States, and the Bill of Rights on antiqued parchment. 15-3/4"H x 13-1/2" W.

$4.25 plus shipping

If you want them larger, there are other sources for about $30

Thanks Mike! These are what I saw in D.C., but had not been able to find these on google, yahoo or MSN search engines.

I do find larger sizes on the eParks site for $3.75 ----price makes me think this may not be upscale office quality. Can you direct me to the "other sources" you mentioned?

I appreciate your help!
Small world I framed some of that stuff a few years ago…….they now hangs proudly in a house in upstate New York USA…….they turned out a treat and look great…..I’m very proud of that job.


We can get some similar stuff about Ireland form one of the Government departments, they generally come folded for the tourist trade, I contacted a manager and was able to get unfolded issues that did not appear in the general release range…….this guy told me they hold a small stock of unfolded product which can be framed……..you might be able to do the same in the US……though when I framed the stuff from the US I personally felt it looked better with the fold lines in them.

BTW the “stuff” was the Declaration of Independence United Stated and the Constitution of the United States………how do describe these both collectively I don’t think describing them as stuff sounds great or respectful.
