5 Ephemera Checks and Receipts
Today we have a wonderful collection of Ephemera Checks and Receipts! I love the typography on these and all the design details that you don’t see on modern checks. The French handwriting on the Invoices is just superb. There is a quirky Receipt with a man’s hand that would be fun to use as a Label of some sort or for your Steampunk projects! You can use the images in your Collage or Mixed Media work. If you have Etsy shop or Brick and Mortar store, you might find the Gift Certificate handy. It is great for those blog giveaways too. You could fill in the certificate and email it to them.
Antique French Ephemera Receipts
This is a fabulous piece of old French Ephemera! It is an antique invoice with the most beautiful typography and handwriting on it! I love that it has the word ‘Cafes’ on it. There is a super cute stamp with postmark in the bottom corner! Plus, there are two cancellation (?) stamps in bright red and another in black. This is such an interesting piece. Make sure you look closely at all the details.
Here is a pretty piece of French Ephemera! It says ‘Paris’ on it. It also happens to have my Birthday (December 21st) on it, although I was not born in 1881. Ha Ha! I wonder what Mademoiselle Langlade purchased for 6+ Francs? The French handwriting on this piece is superb. There are lots of useful elements as well if you feel like separating them out!
Old Valentine’s Day Love Certificate
How fun is this beautiful piece of Ephemera?!!! It is an antique certificate from the ‘Bank of True Love.’ It is so much fun for Valentine’s day or anniversaries! There’s even a little spot where you can fill in the name of the recipient. I love the pink tones and the extraordinary typography here.
Vintage Ephemera Checks and Receipts
Pictured above is a pretty invoice from Philadelphia. It’s dated 1911, and has wonderful old fashioned writing on it! The most spectacular part of this ephemera piece is the ‘Received of’ illustration in the upper left corner. The Letter ‘R’ is dazzling with its dark interior and white outline. There are beautiful flowers surrounding it. The shadow areas look like spilled ink. Truly stunning!
This is a wonderful piece of Ephemera from the 1880’s! Shown above is an antique receipt. From the corner a man’s hand is holding the paper back like a curtain! The detail of the drawing is simply amazing. I just love quirky pieces like this! It is empty so you can fill it in with your own text!
