Digital Downloads: vintage carnival stationary

Getting things for free is always fun. And why waste another dime when you can download your own free stationary right here? That’s right; I created some lovely vintage stationary for you to download. It is A4 sized and can be printed at home (or at the local printing business) as many times as you like.

This set contains 2 A4 sized downloads, so you’ll have different sheets of paper to use for snail mailing, sending a letter to your loved one or writing your pen pal overseas. It has many different elements, like a clown, a elephant, & vintage tickets. Download, print & you are ready to go. Remember to adjust the margin/padding settings on your printer to none/0!

Enjoy the sneak preview below. One more thing: show me what you’ve created with these!

Finds: Bibliodyssey

I wasn’t too enthusiastic about digital downloads at first. I mean, what do you do? Who has all different types and sizes of printing paper or cardstock? And how many of you have a good quality printer? And do you have the time to cut out 12 home printed tags? Not me.

But when I needed business cards for my webshop, I had no choice. I designed the card on a business card template I found online, put it on a USB stick and visited my local printing company. Two days later, they where ready to be picked up. I loved it. I imagined I could get almost everything printed. And it would be good quality. You just have to know what you want.

One of my great loves are old vintage maps (circa 1800) & I found a lot of them on Etsy. They are digital downloads, so no shipping costs. But, as you know me, I like things cheap. If they have digital images of old maps, there needs to be more out there. For free, ofcourse. So I browsed the entire afternoon & barely scratched the surface of libraries filled with high resolution scans and images of old books (I am talking really old here, 1500-1900 era). And the best part: they are all free.

Download some of these awesome scans, take them to your local printing company (if you plan on adding these to snailmail, just let them print your scans double), thrift for old photoframes and you have some really nice wall deco for just $3 or $4…

Some of the images have a lot of color, so I simply muted them in Photoshop to my own liking. Open the image, go to Image > Adjustments > Desaturate. Then go to Edit > Fade and slide untill you are happy. Save!

Grab some tea & let these old images take you back. Way back…

All above images (& many, many more) are free to download here: link
