Free French Postal Graphics

Why, as creative types, are we always drawn to so many things French and all things postal? Likely because both are known for dynamic graphic design. So, enjoy this collection of vintage French stamp cancellation marks that I put together for collage, graphic design, blogging images and all other garden variety crafting projects! (Not sure what those French graphics read? Click HERE to translate.)To access the free PDF vector file, click the above image. And remember, I always love seeing what you create with the images I share!

Feel free to use these graphics in every and any way you can think of, with the only exception of selling the images as clip-art, digital downloads or reproducible art, such as rubber stamps for sale. Thank you.

  23. #23 - Nerissa Alford says:

    Thank you for your generosity, as always! I can't wait to use these.

  24. #24 - Cathe Holden says:

    A reader mentioned they had a message from Google when attempting to download the PDF that the image had exceeded it's bandwidth, or something of that nature. Occasionally you may get that message when trying to access a JSIM image. From what I've researched, that pretty much the same as a busy signal. Too much downloading is going on at once from other users. So please try it again a few moments later. If you are ever still having trouble, be sure to let me know via email so I can send the image directly to you.

  25. #25 - Tea Potty says:

    Thanks for these. It is sad that the modern postal system seems to have lost some of its romance and mystique. I rarely ever get interesting stamps anymore and I live in Germany! Hurrah for those countries that still put some effort into little things like postal and immigration stamps!

  26. #26 - Karen says:

    Thanks so much! You always have the most fabulous graphics and oodles of fun stuff here….a fantastic place to stop in! :>

  62. #62 - Laura Brown says:

    Hi Cathe,
    This is my first vist to your Pincrest page. I love it. I do love all things postal, but I have never been to France. I like what you have put together. Do you have one for places in the United States, especially with Christmas right around the corner.

  63. #63 - Penelope says:

    I just became the owner of 2 cable spools. I’m so excited to do something beautiful with them. I started thinking one of these cancellations would be perfect to decoupage to the top of one of them. I’m a little worried about enlarging them. Would you have any suggestions on how to enlarge them? I have this great print shop nearby that can print items from a file up to 48 inches or so, I’m just not sure these can get that big and keep the quality.

    Thanks for sharing such beautiful things!

  64. #64 - Patti Painter says:

    Lovely, thanks so very much. I have you bookmarked but saw these on Pinterest.

    Awesome materials!I use for Air Mail design. Thank you !

  71. #68 - Diane says:

    Cathe, my “disclaimer” is I am woefully ignorant about many things digital. I downloaded this page you offered, but I don’t know how to incorporate an individual design into one of mine. I am using Broderbund’s Print Shop (very suited for those of us unable to conquer Elements or Corel) and I’m stymied. Please know, I don’t expect you to tell me how to make it work, just can it work? I thought the pdf format was mostly for documents. . . Thanks for any insight. And have a wonderful holiday season. Diane
