Elizabeth O'Neill Verner Postcards Preview

Elizabeth O’Neill Verner was an artist, teacher, author, lecturer, and preservationist who was one of the leaders of the Charleston Renaissance, which flourished during the 1920s and 1930s. She’s been called “the best-known woman artist of South Carolina of the twentieth century.” A native of Charleston, Verner preferred pastels and printmaking. She’s best known for capturing the romantic sensibility of Charleston through her images of residences, churches, and street scenes. Verner’s work is on display at leading museums across the South as well as a handful of national institutions, including the Smithsonian Art Museum and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. I encourage you to visit The Johnson Collection and Verner Gallery to learn more about Elizabeth O’Neill Verner and to explore more of her art.

I’m sharing a small selection of Elizabeth O’Neill Verner’s work through a collection of 10 vintage postcards. Each postcard features a detailed black-and-white illustration of a Charleston scene. The set of postcards is representative of the scope of her artwork, showcasing churches, prominent historic Charleston residences, various streets, and lots of small features, such as a wrought iron gate in a garden.

The postcards make wonderful artwork for anyone who wants to feature Charleston, South Carolina in their home. They’re also ideal for art/junk journals, scrapbooks, greeting cards, and numerous DIY projects. I’d love to hear about how you’re planning to use the Elizabeth O’Neill Verner art images!

Printable vintage Elizabeth O’Neill Verner postcard formats

Each postcard ZIP folder includes the following three formats.

  • Original ratio (3.5″ x 5.5″). All of the Elizabeth O’Neill Verner postcards are standard size, which is 3.5″ x 5.5.” Having the postcards in their original ratio gives you full creative control for formatting and cropping for particular home decor and other projects.
  • 4×6. I’ve formatted the Elizabeth O’Neill Verner postcards in their original ratio with 0.5″ white borders on all sides for straightforward 4×6 printing. Every standard printing service offers 4×6 prints at low prices (as opposed to 3.5″ x 5.5,” which is almost impossible to find). You’ll also be able to choose from an extensive array of affordable 4×6 frames for your new postcard prints.
  • 8×10. I know that many readers have reached this post looking for 8×10 format prints for wall art for homes, classrooms, libraries, and offices. Again, I’ve added a white border on all sides of the 8×10 formatted Elizabeth O’Neill Verner images. I’ve found that it’s the easiest way to keep roughly the original postcard ratio and to find a frame with or without a mat that works well.

I have a comprehensive size guide for my vintage postcard collection downloads. It has all of the information that you need to select the best size(s) for your framing and DIY projects. If you need additional assistance, don’t hesitate to ask!

After the Elizabeth O’Neill Verner postcards, I have a set of 8.5″ x 11″ pages. Each page contains two original ratio postcards. The 8.5″ x 11″ pages save you the trouble of printing each postcard on a separate piece of paper. You can print them on your home printer or send them to a printing service. The 8.5″ x 11″ pages are ideal for scrapbooks, art/junk journals, and craft projects.

The postcard images and 8.5″ x 11″ pages are 300 dpi to ensure the highest print quality possible.

Are you looking for additional postcard formats?

Please don’t hesitate to ask! I’m happy to offer more sizes or other printing options for particular home decor and DIY projects.
