I often use vintage French receipts in my designs. They have such lovely ornaments, typography, and script handwriting. I've just released the Vintage French Papers and Overlays Volume One Collection.
Sometimes, just a little hint of vintage detail added to a photograph is all that is needed.

Papers And Overlays
I first published 7 of these receipts in 2 separate collections (Le Marché). One collection had the original scans and the other was the transparent overlays. Over time, it seemed right to combine these 2 versions. (Note: this is a free upgrade to purchasers of those collections. New links were sent by email. Contact us if you didn't receive the email.)
Sometimes I'll use the original receipt scan in a design as you see below in this cushion design.
Cushion mock-up available by UpStyled.
Other times, I'll use the overlay versions in designs such as this digital paper:
Colors Easily Changed
The Overlays come as transparent black and white PNG files, but the colors can be easily changed. There are a number of tutorials on the blog for Using Overlays. Check out this tutorial for a good start.
More Volumes To Come
Over the past 7 years, I've collected over a hundred pieces. As the production time is quite involved, I've decided to release them in volumes. There will be 4-5 volumes in all and then I'll also release a volume of the extracted design elements like banners Each collection will have a wide variety of choices from truly lovely to deliciously grungy.
I'm so pleased to make these available to you and I can't wait to see what you create!
