I used to collect, of all things, vintage group photos. It started with military panoramas and then school children, and eventually just clusters of people. I sold most of them during my antique-dealer days but pulled out a few neat ones I still have and thought we could have some fun!I cropped out some peeps from a 1938 group photo and made an image for the background of a No. 10 business envelope and zoomed in on a select few to use at the bottom of some simple note cards. Then I added a few blank labels from HERE. If you use the images for your own stationery, add your address to the envelopes (I used 9 pt. typewriter font, Trixie) as well as your name to the cards.For the note cards, print the 2-up image (below) onto 8.5″ x 11″ cardstock and cut exactly down the middle. Then cut each to 4″ wide and trim off the bottom margin if necessary to create a bleed effect.
I lightened the group image for the envelope to keep within USPS regulations for envelope graphics, and no doubt that postal barcode is going to tattoo the gang in the front row.There, custom funky people stationery, for lack of a better name.
Oh, and don’t forget to have some fun with the faces!Make other things with the group photo like tin can wraps for your pens and pencils.
