Some favorite old type examples from my own collection of paper ephemera. Ever helpful for inspiration. vintage type inspiration vintage type inspiration 2 (you can see the full images from the cards, plus more cards on my old ephemera blog.)


  1. Love these!! My mom has a whole steamer chest full of old stuff like this and I love sifting through it every so often. Mostly very old cards, autograph books and coffee coupons. Ornate, colorful and beautiful typography.

  2. Goodness, what stunning typography! They are so lovely :)

  3. I love vintage typography/design! I have a growing collection of Victorian calling cards that I like to flip through. I'm definitely going to keep my eye on your ephemera blog!
