Welcome to Vintage Bookplates! My personalized bookplates feature beautiful vintage images created from restored postcard images and early 20th century storybooks. Printed in the early 1900s, many of these images were looking a little dog-eared, to say the least!

Dating back to 15th century Germany, bookplates are decorative labels typically pasted into the front inside cover of a book to identify its owner. Often, these small labels bore beautiful illustrations, motifs or crests that related to the owner of the book. Today, despite the trend toward digital books, personalized bookplates have regained their popularity.

Our vintage collection of bookplate labels are printed on high-quality adhesive labels…no need to mess around with paste! Paired with a book, these labels make a terrific gift for teachers, children and any bookworm who still loves physical books!

CUSTOM ORDERS / LARGE QUANTITIES
I love doing custom orders! Just send me a convo about what you envision so that I can create a custom listing for you. I have many more vintage images available from my personal collection and would be happy to create something especially for you!

Typically, there is no additional charge unless you need changes to the layout or graphics. For large quantities of the same product, I can often provide a discount.
