Free printable vintage Thanksgiving postcards are ideal for holiday home decor. They’re also perfect for scrapbooking, decoupage, and endless craft projects.
I’ve put together a set of 14 free printable vintage Thanksgiving postcards. The hand-drawn and hand-painted images on antique postcards are wonderful and unlike anything available today. Vintage postcards make quick, whimsical wall decor. You can also use them for numerous DIY projects, including but not limited to, art/junk journals, physical and digital scrapbooks, scrapbook embellishments, decoupage, greeting cards, magnets, gift tags, pendant necklaces, and tile coasters.
Printable vintage Thanksgiving postcard formats
I’m offering the printable postcards in the following formats.
- Original ratio (3.5″ x 5.5″). All of the Thanksgiving postcards are standard size, which is 3.5″ x 5.5.” Downloading the postcards in their original ratio gives you maximum creative control to crop and format them as you need for various wall decor and craft projects.
- 4×6. I’ve formatted all of the postcards in original size with 0.5″ white borders on all sides, so you can print them in 4×6 orientation. As virtually every printing service offerings a 4×6 printing size (and not a 3.5″ x 5.5″ size), I’ve found that this is the easiest way to format them for simple, inexpensive printing.
- 8×10. I’ve also formatted the postcards to 8×10 orientation, as I know that many people are searching for free Thanksgiving printables in 8×10 size to display in frames. Again, the 8×10 formats have white borders. I’ve found that this is the easiest way to maintain roughly the original ratio of the postcard and find a frame with or without a matte that will work well.
I have a comprehensive guide explaining the various download sizes I offer for my vintage postcards. It will help you select the best sizes for framing and DIY purposes. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask!
Following the individual postcard downloads, I also have the following downloads available.
- A set of 8.5″ x 11″ pages with multiple original ratio postcards per page. For your convenience for craft projects, I’ve created a set of five 8.5″ x 11″ pages with two or three postcards on each page. These pages make it easy to print out all of the postcards at home or through your favorite printing service without printing every postcard individually.
- A set of ATC-size digital collage sheets. ATC-sized crops (2.5″ x 3.5″) are designed with artist trading cards in mind. They can also be used for a wide variety of craft projects where you’d like smaller, more detailed images, such as magnets, greeting cards, and pendant necklaces.
All of the postcard images, 8.5″ x 11″ pages, and ATC-size digital collage sheets are 300 dpi to ensure the best print quality possible.
Are you in need of additional postcard formats or digital collage sheets?
Please let me know! I’m happy to create exactly what you need for specific framing and DIY projects.
