Free Vintage Holiday Images

Copyright free, vintage holiday images are among the most sought after free downloads on the web. We are working to bring you only those vintage holiday postcards, advertising images and other pieces that we can verify as being in the public domain. We want you to be able to have fun working with these images and not have to worry about whether or not they are actually still under copyright.

We have a growing collection of Valentine’s Day postcards to send to your favorite someone or to use on a memory page. Most of them are from the early 1900s.

Easter is currently our smallest holiday image category. Hopefully, that will change in the near future. But, you still might want to take a look at what we have.

If you are looking for July 4th and Independence Day graphics and cards, they can be found in our section of vintage patriotic images.

Halloween images are a more recent addition to Free Vintage Art. We found a great vintage paper goods catalog from 1920 that contained several examples of their Halloween decorations. The catalog shared party ideas and sadly did not contain good pictures of all of their graphics. We did manage to snag a few great ones that you will hopefully find useful.

We all have much to be thankful for. Just think of all of the wonderful holiday images that are now available for crafters. Thanksgiving is the perfect holiday for vintage illustrations and we have a small collection of them to share with you.

Christmas is coming and so is hopefully a selection of Christmas holiday images to get your crafty juices flowing. We have a mixture of vintage Christmas greetings and iconic images from the holiday.

As this is only our second year running Free Vintage Art, we have a relatively small collection of vintage holiday images here. We hope the selection offers you something you find useful and please do remember us for next year as we will no doubt have even more wonderful public domain holiday images to share with you.
