Free printable vintage St. Patrick’s Day postcards make perfect holiday home decor. They’re also great for decoupage, scrapbooking, and numerous DIY projects.
I’ve created a collection of lucky 13 free printable vintage St. Patrick’s Day postcards. The hand-drawn illustrations on antique postcards are fabulous and unlike anything you find today. Vintage postcards make easy holiday wall art. They can also be used for endless DIY projects, including but not limited to, decoupage, art/junk journals, greeting cards, stationery, scrapbooking, magnets, pendant necklaces, gift tags, and tile coasters.
Printable vintage St. Patrick’s Day postcard sizes
I’ve made the printable postcards available in the following sizes.
- Original size (3.5″ x 4.5″). All of the postcards are standard size, which is 3.5″ x 4.5.” Downloading the postcards in their original size gives you the most creative control to crop and format them as you like for various wall art and DIY projects.
- 4×6. I’ve formatted all of the postcards in original size with white borders, so you can print them in 4×6 orientation. Through personal experience, I’ve found that this is the simplest way to print them in original size for framing.
- 8×10. I’ve also formatted all of the postcards to 8×10 format, as I know many people are looking for free St. Patrick’s Day printables in 8×10 size to display in frames. Again, the 8×10 formats have white borders. It’s the easiest way to retain the original ratio of the postcard and find a frame with or without a matte that will work well.
Following the individual postcard downloads, I also have the following downloads available.
- A set of 8.5″ x 11″ pages with multiple original-size postcards per page. For your convenience for DIY projects, I’ve created a set of seven 8.5″ x 11″ pages with two postcards on each page. These pages make it simple to print all of the postcards at home or through your favorite printer without printing each postcard individually.
- A set of ATC-size digital collage sheets. ATC-sized crops (2.5″ x 3.5″) are perfect for artist trading cards as well as numerous craft projects where you’d prefer more detailed smaller images as opposed to full postcards, such as pendant necklaces, magnets, and greeting cards.
The 8.5″ x 11″ pages and the ATC-size digital collage sheets are 300 dpi to ensure the highest print quality possible.
Are you looking for additional formats or digital collage sheets? Please let me know! I’m happy to create resources to suit your specific framing needs and DIY projects.
