Vintage Printable

June 10, 2009

Find of the year! Vintage Printable has FREE high resolution images of botanicals, architectural prints, old travel posters, and all sorts of other lovely things (like the example above). There are dozens and dozens, maybe hundreds of gorgeous options. The illustrations are curated by Swivelchair, an anonymous biopharma worker.

The images have a high enough resolution, that you can print them up poster size and they’ll still look great — not pixelated or fuzzy. Print one out on the oversize printer at your local copy center, then frame it in a ready made option and you’ve got fantastic wall art on the cheap. See a great example here.

Isn't that example in the living room of HGTV's new "green" house? It looks just like it.

These are very cool! Is there a special way to download the images so they are ready for print? or is it just the old fashion right-click and save?

Oh, yay! I was JUST looking for something to hang in the stairwell at my house, and I think I just found it. Thanks for the tip!!

this is a great find, but I can't figure out how to get a file big enough for a poster sized print. what should I be doing? when I right click on the image, the files I'm downloading are only maybe 10 inches big by 72 dpi, which is not high enough resolution is it?

I have to join in on the chorus and say how awesome this is! but I'm also a bit shocked that these images can be blown up to poster size, I downloaded a few and they were mostly a quarter page.. maybe they print well anyway?

Either way, it's really awesome, thanks so much for posting the link!
