I had found one diy printable sight that had vintage layouts like this.  You would just have to fill in your info.  Ugh my computer is in getting worked on so I don’t have the link.  Maybe you could search it?

Those are great but NOT for 12 bucks a pop..

I’m a DIY bride all the way…

so I took a few seconds and saw a couple different “vintage” templates on

http://www.i-do-it-yourself.com/category/freebies-downloads/

http://www.i-do-it-yourself.com/2010/01/free-fillable-vintage-labels/ <– definitely a winner!

Now what I would do is…

  1. Get the Downloads and see what size they are
  2. If need be resize them.. idk if you’re computer savvy or not but I use Irfan View to resize my pics as I do not have Photoshop (which I hear you can resize in that program.
  3. Then Add your numbers… Use Photoshop if you have it or if you’re like me use Illustrator.

How that helps get you out of spending 12 bucks a pop!

amnystik! thank you for posting this wonderful link!! I’m totally finding a way to use these in my peacock vintage wedding!! This was a great post!!

And amnystik, how did you download these and save them to your computer to change the size? When I click on the link to download the template it just comes up for me to type in it and print it right then, but no downloading the template for saving.

@Pilotsgirl09 I honestly don’t know that part.. but just put what I know to normally do for other DIY things I’ve found.

I’m actually making my own Table Numbers with 7″ vinyl records and a 4″ “special date” number.

BUT…… I did just take a minute and figured it out! WOOHOO!

So this is what I did!

to save the image I clicked the “world image” link at the end of where all the examples are shown which took me to

http://blog.worldlabel.com/2009/free-fillable-suzee-que-vintage-labels.html

I then right clicked the image and clicked “save image as”

I then used IrfanView to resize the pic

I don’t have Photoshop but instead use Illustrator. If you have Photoshop just resize in that program otherwise………

which you can download here: http://www.irfanview.com/

If you’ve never used it here’s what you do:

  1. Open IrfanView
  2. In the top left corner (right under file) you’ll see a “folder” icon click it to find your image
  3. Find your image and select it.. It will show in the black area of the window (you’ll see what I’m talking about)
  4. To resize:

    1. Click “Image” in the top toolbar
    2. In dropbox find “Resize/Resample”
    3. In the Resize window you’ll see “Set New Size” It’s on the left half of the window
    4. In the “Set New Size” be sure to click “inches” instead of “pixels”
    5. Put your new size in and click “ok”

  5. Now just save the image by clicking the “Floppy Disk” icon

TA DA… New Resized Saved Image…

Then just use your Photoshop/Illustrator/or even PowerPoint to Make your Finals.

I originally used Illustrator for this one so I could match the font color to the “brass design” on the top and bottom BUT… can’t upload a PDF so once I had the match I used PowerPoint and here it is… a 6×3 Vintage Table Number!

Hope that Helps =)
