Free Printable Large-Scale Vintage Christmas Signs!

I am sooooo excited to share these classic Christmas book title page printables with all of you!

Free Printable Christmas Signs

I’m the first to admit I’m not a huge holiday decorator, I think my blog’s scarcity of Christmas-themed posts can testify to that, though this year I wanted to create something we could all enjoy. And when I was designing these printable signs, I felt a sense of all-consuming enthusiasm I haven’t tasted in a long, long time.

Not that I’ve been wallowing in a puddle of a self-imposed misery lately. Just because over the past few (okay, several) months, I’ve been in a bit of a funk where little has seemed to come quite this freely…and easily…and joyously. It was honestly a pleasure to get my creative cogs a-whirring with this project and it felt so rewarding researching the origins of my chosen ‘works’ to give these signs a real sense of historical accuracy and authenticity.

16 Free Printable Vintage Style Christmas Signs!

In this bundle I am offering a total of 16 free printable large-scale book title page signs; four different classic Christmas tales each available in both Ivory and Cream and with either Black or Red artwork.

16 Amazing Free Printable Farmhouse Style Christmas Signs!

As always, each image has been fully optimised for print and, for your convenience, designed in 2:3 ratio (60cm/24″ x 90cm/36″) to fit standard frames.

Files are saved in zipped folders. Depending on your operating system they may need to be extracted prior to viewing. Due to their large size, some mobile devices may fail to load them.

Being large-scale, one of these signs alone makes a lovely statement though how amazing would they look hung as a collection? Imagine all four of them in a horizontal row on a long wall (someone needs to do this and send me pics, mkay)? Or in grid formation using slightly smaller frames.

PRINTING

You can have these signs printed at any store which offers a good-quality, large-format printing service. Prices for a 60cm/24″ x 90cm/36″, full-colour print on poster paper generally range between $20 – $40. Black and white engineering prints on thin bond paper can be as inexpensive as $3. Colour engineering prints are also offered at some stores and usually start at around $10. If you’re unsure where to start looking, try Googling “print and copy services”. Otherwise, some stores include; Officeworks, Vista Print, Staples, Office Depot, Costco, Walmart. Along with having your image printed in-store, many companies also offer an online upload service. This can be handy if you live in a remote area or simply want the convenience of shopping from home. I have some basic instructions for ordering online from three different companies here.

FRAMING

For ease, I have designed these signs in 2:3 ratio to fit standard frames. You can find large 60cm/24″ x 90cm/36″ frames in lots of places with prices generally starting from around $15. If you’re unsure where to start looking, try Googling “poster frames”. Otherwise, visit dollar and discount stores, affordable department and homewares stores or Ikea. For a more authentic sign look, I recommend removing the glass/perspex from your frame and affixing the print directly to the backing board using spray adhesive. If you would prefer to DIY your own farmhouse style frame, you can find my basic tutorial here. Another easy DIY alternative is to create a hanging wall chart. This is a simple matter of attaching dowels to the top and base of the poster, similar to what I did here.

Another even simpler hanging method would be to use some pretty binder clips. These Kmart ones are cool.

And, you can even use ready-to-go poster hanging strips. These function like clamps (usually using magnets or screws) and require little to NO work. They can be found in lots of places nowadays. Check out Etsy or eBay or simply Google “poster hanging strips” or “poster hanging rails”.

I really wanted to style some of my pics for this post with a live, traditional-style, tabletop tree…though I couldn’t find one at any of my local plant nurseries! So, instead I opted for an Aussie alternative. Below is a native Albany Woolly Bush – partnered with seasonal cherries, of course!

    These are fantastic, thank you! I hope to at least get them printed before Christmas, but I generally run a year or two behind on actually getting things hung :-)

    • LOL Patty! Maybe just tack them to the wall (standard poster style) so they’re up in time for Christmas this year. Otherwise, binder clips are a quick and easy hanging method :)

    I’m sorry to hear of the funk – I do empathize. It’s feels so buoyant coming out the other side, doesn’t it! These prints are beautiful – thanks for what you do. :)

    • Thanks so much Debbie. It’s been a strange year. When I look back, its almost like I’ve been living in anticipation of something (I have no idea what), and forgetting about the NOW. Definitely starting to come out the other side and reminding myself to embrace each moment :)

  4. Wow, Kristine, these are wonderful! What a beautiful gift! I can’t wait to use these in my home for Christmas. ~Sharon.

    These posters are great. My daughter danced in a semi-professional dance group. They did The Nutcracker Mouse King every year. She played many different parts of the ballet. Her favorites were the Waltz of the Flowers and the Snow Queen. When she was small she was one of they many children that tumbled out of Mother Ginger.

  7. Jeanna says:

    As usual, you knocked the ball right out of the park! I love them :) Thank you.

  8. Margo Porter says:

    Kristine, these are lovely, thank you for your generosity in sharing them.
    They are tasteful, different and have a certain originality/authenticity about them
    I’m with you, we don’t all HAVE to go overboard with Christmas decorating as
    some bloggers do. TOO MUCH STRESS anyway, without getting competetive
    about how wonderful and over-the-top your Christmas/festive/holiday decor is.
    I hope you have a less “funky” year in 2108.
    Thanks for sharing you lovely home.
    Kind regards,
    Margo

  12. Lynn says:

    These are just so beautiful! I love them! Thank you. :)

  13. Mary says:

    These are gorgeous and bring back fond memories for me of when my kids were younger and we would blast the Nutcracker in the house non-stop for a month. Thanks for the printables.

    • That sounds so festive! I can’t wait to get my Christmas soundtrack on. I love all the crooner versions of the old favourites :)

  14. Amber says:

    Where did you get these printed? Looking for the ‘antiqued’ paper look!! Thanks so much and Merry Christmas!

    • Amber, the backgrounds are part of the images. Most companies will only supply white paper for large-format printing.
