Customers can choose a framed 10x8 print from as little as €30 and it will be gift-wrapped on site.
Front office manager Mary Terry said the nostalgic prints would make a unique gift for Christmas.
"Customers are welcome to come in and browse around the shop and pick the photograph they'd like from the display wall," she said.
"But they can also browse our photographic archive which will be available online here in the shop, for the image they'd like."
However, Ms Terry said she can also arrange for any photograph taken by an Irish Examiner or Evening Echo staff photographer, whether it is printed in the newspapers or not, to be transformed into a range of personalised gifts, such as mouse mats, mugs, jigsaws, glitter globes or t-shirts.
The high-quality stretched canvas prints are proving hugely popular, she said.
There is also a huge selection of books from the Irish Examiner and Evening Echo books collection, including The Great Sacrifice, Picture That, the Coast of Cork, the Coast of Kerry, and North Mon 200 as well as the Irish Examiner's Christmas cards, featuring scenes from its archives.
The shop is open 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday, just inside the front door of the newspaper's offices on Lapp's Quay, in Cork.
