11 Vintage Invoice Ephemera
I have always loved the look of vintage invoices that I find in antique shops. I love to imagine what life was like back then and who may have owned them. That’s why I’m sharing these vintage invoice Ephemera Downloads from my collection, for you to use in your creations. Or you can always just admire them too, as they are so interesting to look at! There is a mixture of both French Invoices and American ones to tickle your fancy!
Antique French Invoice Images
How gorgeous is this?! This one was shared from a sweet reader named Sylvie from France. This gorgeous antique invoice belonged to her Grandmother. Collage and mixed media artists will no doubt love this piece of Ephemera, in it’s original form with it’s beautiful script handwriting and delicate imagery on the letterhead.
Above is another fabulous French Ephemera image, from sweet Sylvie in France at La Miette Bricole. This old invoice has such wonderful typography on it. I love the handwriting too! I think I would enjoy paying my bills a lot more if they all looked like this!

Here we have another gorgeous piece of French Ephemera from our dear friends at La Miette Bricole. She is lovely to share so many beautiful things with us?!! I believe this one belonged to her Grandmother. I love the Paris address, exquisite handwriting, beautiful typography, and the darling stamp at the bottom!
Here is the latest addition to this collection. I was digging through my boxes of old Ephemera recently and found this beauty! I’ve had it for a long time, but I guess I never got around to posting it. I believe it’s an invoice for some type of dyeing or painting company. (Update a very kind reader told me that this is a Dry Cleaning invoice. Thank you Frances!) I’m not sure if the date is 1901 or 1907 but it’s pretty old either way. I like the purple ink too!
Vintage Invoice Ephemera
Above is another old Ephemera treasure. This is a circa 1869 invoice for a Hardware store in Baltimore. It has such great typography and handwriting!! I just love the lock graphic on this piece. I’ve included a full size printable of the vintage Ephemera invoice.
This is a wonderful antique invoice from 1912. I love the aged patina on the edges of this one! It is from a Seed and Feed merchant in Philadelphia. I adore the “Bought of” graphic especially.
Old Invoice Logo Graphics
I worked on this one for quite a few hours, but that’s okay because I love it!! Displayed above is an antique French Invoice for Dog Biscuits. So cute!! I especially love the engraved Dog and Rooster images on it. You could use this as a label just as is. This is from another fine antique French Invoice. It’s a lovely frame with Medallions in it, that is embellished with leaves and ribbon banners. The round medallions resemble coins or medals that appear to be metal and deeply engraved. It reads, “Exposition Universelle, Paris 1889.”
Here we have a beautiful example of fabulous antique French typography! There are several styles of lettering on this piece – Script, Shadow Outline, Italic, and one that resembles Handwritten Capitals. This looks like it would be for something sooo romantic, but I think actually it has something to do with hardware. Still beautiful though!
French Business Envelope
This next offering is not actually and invoice, but inside the front of an Envelope that possibly held an invoice at some point.

I believe it’s an envelope for a company that made and sold Men’s shirts in Paris. You can see the full envelope with flaps and all above, if you would like to create, then just grab the PDF and print it out. This one was shared by a kind reader named Maryvonne in France!

Thank you so much Pat! Yes, some how they made even every day things beautiful and decorative!
Lovely, thank you !
The invoice with the purple writing is actually for a Dry Cleaning company, and its most likely from 1907, as surprisingly the number 1 is written in the English way, with just a vertical bar (as can be seen in the date and in the prices)
