Introducing The Ledger. High resolution overlays and paper backgrounds to enhance your designs with a subtle vintage element.
Back in the day when "car fixing" cost less than $10, and a shave was 15 cents, people kept track of expenses and income in hand-written ledger books. This listing includes 30 scans of pages from a farmer and beekeeper's ledger from the late 1910's to the 1920's. Direct from my personal collection, you will receive each page in both high-resolution full color JPG as well as transparent PNG files. Each file is quite large at 4000 pixels wide by 6824 pixels tall.
These antique ledger graphics are the perfect way to add a vintage aspect to your art, packaging design, business cards, photo overlays, and so much more. Keep in mind that this isn't a pristine ledger. It's filled with ink bleeds, stains, pencil scribbles, and scratches. A great way to add a little grungy detail.
