Sometimes, the amount of content on this blog amazes me. I mean, I’ll be browsing Pinterest, and *pow!*, a TPK post from yesteryear will pop up! I always have this moment of, “Huh, that photo looks familiar,” followed by, “Ohhh — right! I made that … wow, I forgot how cool that was!” That happened this morning when the Luminous Printable Mail Art Envelope Template showed up on my Pinterest feed. Its appearance was the catalyst for today’s TPK blog post, which highlights the top eight free printable mail art templates on the site! The templates are ordered by popularity (number of downloads):
At 3,740 downloads, the Holiday Mail Art Template is the most popular on the TPK site. While I suspect you may not have a use for it now, you can “pin” it for use (much) later this year!
At 3,497 downloads, the Block Printed Mail Art Template — designed by artist Katharine Watson — is the most popular recent mail art printable on the TPK site! It’s got a folksy, almost Scandinavian look to it. As a new mom, I use this mail art quite a bit to save time but still send out something cool!
At 2,503 downloads, the Printable Valentine’s Day Card + Envelope Pair has enjoyed a fair amount of success since its release three years ago. The floral theme makes it great for Valentine’s Day (which is coming up in a month — wow!), but you can modify the message on the card for any occasion!
If I were making a list of my personal favorite mail art templates, this one would be #1! I guess I have a thing for lamps and lightbulbs? 🙂 As it is, though, this mail art template has 2,105 downloads, making it the fourth most popular on the TPK website.
The Typography Art Envelope Template is a bit different from all the other printables on this list. It’s not a ready-made piece that you print, cut, and fold. Instead, it’s a piece of paper that you slip into an A7 envelope and trace over! 2,101 brave souls have done it, so I know that you can, too. 🙂
I created the tree printable mail art template four years ago — back when photography terrified me. Consequently, I don’t have any fantastic photos of this mail art! Don’t let my poor photography deter you, though: the template really is lovely, and you can modify the colors of the leaves (which you paint or draw in yourself) to reflect the current season!
The Watercolor Henna Printable Mail Art will be celebrating its fifth birthday in a couple of months … it’s a vintage beaut! I love its ombré red/orange/yellow color scheme and henna motif! It’s got 1,455 downloads to date.
The creepiest mail art printables on the TPK website have been downloaded 1,418 times! You don’t have to wait until Halloween to use them, though. They can add a noir flair to someone’s mailbox any time of year!
I hope that you enjoyed this roundup, and that not a lot of these are “repeats” for you! Several of these printable mail art templates are from quite a few years ago, so my hope is that this is the first time you’re seeing them. If you have any questions about these printables or mail art in general, please feel free to ask in the comments! It’s always a pleasure to hear from you.
Thanks very much for reading TPK, and we’ll reconvene on Thursday with a little YouTube treat!
