Free vintage Kodak camera supply catalog pages are the most amazing ephemera for any photography enthusiast!
There’s nothing quite like vintage catalogs with hand-drawn illustrations. The 1928 Kodak supply catalog that I’m featuring in this post is no exception. The illustrations are fabulous, and there are quite a few photos as well, demonstrating the fantastic abilities of Kodak cameras. You’ll be hard-pressed to find anything else quite like them. The catalog pages are ideal for home, studio, and classroom wall art. They’re also perfect for numerous DIY projects, including but not limited to, art/junk journals, greeting cards, home decor, scrapbooks, decoupage, and Christmas ornaments.
It’s no secret that I’m a long-time photography enthusiast and that I love vintage book pages and other antique paper ephemera. I also have a collection of vintage film photography ephemera. I’m so excited to bring you another photography-themed vintage set today and hope to offer more in the future. If there’s anything you’d like to see here, please let me know!
The 1928 Kodak supply catalog includes camera listings with details, pricing, and photo examples; personal hand-held movie camera listings; a wide range of accessories including lenses, paper, printing supplies, and mounting/framing supplies; and a selection of photo albums.
I’m providing 30 full pages from the vintage Kodak supply catalog. Enjoy!
How to use vintage book pages
When you’re searching for antique book pages, typically, you already know how you plan to use them. If you’re looking for inspiration or simply want a few more ideas for your new vintage printables, think about one or more of the following projects.
- DIY wall art. One of the most common ways to use old book pages is to create whimsical wall decor. Vintage Kodak camera supply catalog pages make beautiful decor for homes, studios, classrooms, and more. You can use them as is or overlay them with text and/or PNGs or transparent background images.
- Greeting cards. I love vintage catalog pages for general note cards or photography-themed cards, such as thank you cards for a photography teacher or family photographer.
- Glass or bottle cap magnets, using the technique that I perfected for my sheet music magnets.
- Pendant necklaces, using the above tutorial to make pendant necklaces instead of magnets.
- Tile coasters. Any kind of vintage paper works well for my vintage sheet music botanical coasters project. I love the concept of a photography-themed set.
- Christmas ornaments. There are so many fun possibilities for photography holiday ornaments for your own tree, to give as gifts, and to sell online and/or at craft fairs.
- Art journals and other mixed media projects. Vintage book pages are a popular material for art/junk journals and other types of mixed media art. You can use them on their own or layer them with ink, paint, stamps, and more.
- Scrapbooking. Antique book pages are ideal for backgrounds and decorative elements for physical and digital scrapbooks. They also make great materials for DIY scrapbook embellishments.
About the vintage Kodak camera supply catalog pages
You may use the antique catalog pages for as many personal projects as you’d like, which includes classroom use. You may also use them for limited commercial project runs (5,000 items or less). Commercial use DOES NOT include made-to-order sites, such as Redbubble and Society6. Digital commercial items must be flat, finished products (i.e., not Adobe Illustrator files) consisting of your own original content. You are not authorized to sell the catalog pages, either as individual items or as part of larger collections.
Finally, please don’t distribute the download files. If friends, family, or co-workers are interested in their own Kodak supply catalog pages, please provide them with a link to this post, where they can download their own files. Thank you!
Full catalog pages
I’m offering 30 full pages from the Kodak supply catalog. All of the pages are 3185 x 4570 pixels with 300 dpi resolution. There are listings for cameras, personal hand-held movie cameras, paper, lenses, printing supplies, mounting/framing supplies, photo albums, and more.
I’ve split the full catalog pages into five ZIP folders to give you large files in an easy-to-download format.
Extracting and downloading the ZIP folders
I’ve created ZIP folders for the vintage catalog pages. Zipped folders enable me to offer high-resolution files for crisp, vibrant printing and to protect said files against potential theft. Extracting and downloading the ZIP folders from Google Drive is pretty straightforward. Please note that it does take a little time for each folder to download in full.
- When you click on the download link, select the Open with ZIP Extractor option at the top of the page.
- The folder will open in a new window. The files will download.
- Once the files have downloaded, click Extract Now.
- When the files have extracted and uploaded, click View Extracted Files.
- Double click on the folder.
- To download, select the files you’d like to download. Click the three horizontal dots More Actions button. Choose Download.
I highly recommend moving your downloaded files out of your downloads folder and into your main photos folder. I also recommend creating a backup copy of the files on an external hard drive or cloud storage drive. Keep your files in a folder titled “Kodak Supply Catalog” or something similar, so you’re able to locate them again with ease.
Now you’re ready to use your antique printables for wall art and endless DIY projects!
Printing antique catalog pages
When you use vintage book pages to create your own wall art and other home decor, my personal pick for home printing is Finestra Art Paper. I choose Finestra time and time again because the paper features an acid-free, matte surface, which dries ink quickly, creating crisp, vibrant images. I like the look that Finestra produces better than the aesthetic you get with regular printer paper, card stock, and presentation paper.
Finestra doesn’t sponsor or endorse me to promote their products. I found their paper through my own research and love the consistent, high-quality results that it’s produced through years of making art for blog posts and decor for my own home.
For all other DIY projects, I use white card stock. When you’re making scrapbook embellishments, mixed media art, and greeting cards, it’s not as important that the images are really vibrant. When you’re producing pieces that involve multiple Mod Podge or diamond glaze coats, such as glass magnets, pendant necklaces, and tiles coasters, you won’t be able to tell any difference in the finish of your paper. As such, it makes sense to use card stock, which is less expensive but still high-quality and very durable.
