I recently inherited a box of my Grandfather’s old possessions, which alongside his WW2 service books and a Great War Memorial Plaque for my great-great-uncle, also contains a number of postcards dated from the mid-1930s. As well as being treasured heirlooms, the aged paper textures of these postcards also make fantastic design resources! Download this pack of 24 free postcard textures to create authentic vintage effects for your artwork.
My family has no idea how these postcards came into my Grandfather’s possession, but they’re all from Italy and have various compassionate messages handwritten in Italian, with dates between 1934-1937. I’ve scanned and processed them to produce a pack of high resolution textures which are perfect for creating authentic vintage designs. Choose from 12 handwritten postcards or 12 blank postcards to use as backgrounds or elements within your projects. They’re all 300dpi CMYK JPEG scans with lots of grungy textures and colouring from centuries of ageing!
