We’d love to see photos of your jukeboxes customized with our lettering, please send photos to firstname.lastname@example.org, and let us know whether or not you’re OK with us sharing them. If you don’t let us know, we’ll ask before sharing them.
If you leave a comment or review on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year.

Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
How long we retain your data

We maintain a record of orders and related shipping information that is visible only to administrators and the customer. No credit card data or related financial information is stored on our server or ever seen or handled by midwestephemera administrators, it’s all handled securely by third-party financial service providers.
