New Products in My Etsy Shop: Colorful Vintage Postcard Templates

It's been a while since I updated this blog, and even longer since I've updated my Etsy shop. Partly this is because I've been working on reorganizing my craft supplies, which necessitated a lot of shopping, furniture building, and attempts at DIY shelf hanging. I live in a small space without a dedicated craft room or studio, and even though most of my materials and tools are flat and small, it has still been a struggle to find a way to store them while still allowing me easy access. I hope that my new arrangements will make things easier, so I can finally get back to work at restocking the shop.

In the meantime, I've actually added a small range of downloadable postcard templates to the shop--no physical storage or restocking required! This product line was inspired by the colorized vintage postcards I make and print at home as birthday party favors/thank-you gifts for my family. I experimented a little with several real vintage postcards, put together elements I liked from different ones, and created three colorways: rainbow, bright, and pastel.

Each downloadable PDF template contains postcard backs in six different colors, plus a sheet of instructions and tips. They print out as a standard A6 card, which is 4.25" by 5.5", or one quarter of a standard 8.5" by 11" piece of cardstock--I used a paper trimmer to cut my own cards as seen in these photos.

I like embellishing my own cards with stickers and drawings, which I think adds a nice personal element to any correspondence, but you could also print the template on the reverse of a photo or digital design to make custom stationery. I think the vintage postcard design adds a fun touch to invitations, thank-you notes, and greeting cards!

If you're interested in downloading and printing these vintage postcards, each template colorway is available in my Etsy shop for $6.50.
