About

Printable Images - Vintage Collage Sheets for Today's Crafts

I am a lifelong crafter who has always had a million projects on the go at once. I've always made things; I've always taken utilitarian items in my home and embellished them; I've always drawn and painted, though never been truly happy with the results as my physical renditions of the image I saw in my head never matched that picture in my mind that I started out with. When my daughter was born, I discovered the world of digital scrapbooking and at the same time, I started going "junking" with friends for a bit of Mommy time out. It was then I discovered the world of vintage ephemera and fell in love with the beautiful old images I found in books and on postcards and calendars and started collecting it. I'm not sure why it took me so long, but it did take awhile for it to dawn on me that I could combine my digital scrapbooking with my love for collecting vintage images by scanning them and using them on my scrapbook pages, which I started doing. And it still took me awhile after that to realize I didn't have to use the digital scrapbooking software and the vintage images to create scrapbook pages! That was a red-letter day for me, even though I don't remember exactly what day it was. But for the first time, I could take those pictures in my head and create them almost exactly as I saw them, by using a snippet of this Victorian artist and a snippet of that Victorian artist and some backgrounds I had blended together out of an amazing assortment of scanned images and it was shortly after that that MyDigitalDaydream was born. Mostly to try to partially justify the time and expense I was putting into what has become an ever-increasing passion for me.

In addition to my original Etsy shop, MyDigitalDaydream, I've also sold my designs as physical items and have had some of them licensed for exclusive use. It wouldn't make sense for me to sell my designs for others to sell as well, in direct competition with myself basically, or to violate the terms of any contracts, so I set MyDigitalDaydream up to sell items for personal use only. I received a lot of requests to utilize many of my designs in items for resale and eventually set up MyDigitalDaydream2 to sell those items that would not conflict with my other endeavors. It's been a slow process figuring out what should go where and beginning to move things, but over the next few months, you'll see a lot added here from my original shop.

Welcome to MyDigitalDaydream2. Here you will find public domain collage sheet collections for personal and commercial use as well as digital products designed by MyDigitalDaydream for commercial use. All images are at least 300 dpi.

All items sold by MyDigitalDaydream2 are digital items which I've designed myself or compiled from scans of Public Domain vintage images which are part of my personal collection. There are many, many digital collage sheets being offered for sale on Etsy compiled from images that the seller has no legal right to be selling and despite the fact that they give you, the buyer, permission to use these images in handcrafted items for resale, they do not have the legal right to grant you that license. By utilizing these images, you too are violating copyright laws and can be held responsible by the copyright holder.

Many people seem to be totally unaware that a large percentage of images out there are copyrighted and just because you can scan something or right-click on a picture and save it on your computer, you cannot sell or even distribute those images for free to others. And just because an image on someone's web site is an image in the public domain does not give someone the right to copy that image and distribute it. What being in the public domain means is that you cannot be stopped from utilizing your own copy of that image in whatever way you wish, but you cannot just right click on someone else's public domain image and utilize it for your own purposes.

When you utilize images from MyDigitalDaydream2, you can use them in items for resale with the confidence that you are not violating any copyright laws.

Additional policies and FAQs
Copyright:

All items designed by MyDigitalDaydream are copyrighted by MyDigitalDaydream. Purchase of these images for commercial use does not transfer the copyright.

FILE FORMATS:

You are purchasing a file, either in a .jpg or a .png or a .pdf format, for printing or utilizing in your photo editing software as desired with the limitations outlined in the Terms of Use above.

All files are 300 dpi, (2500 x 3300 pixels for 8.5 x 11's and 3600 x 3600 pixels for 12 x 12's). They can be printed as many times as you desire on the paper type of your choice.

Many of the items are in a .zip format for download. This allows multiple files to be packaged together so they don't have to be downloaded one at a time. Once the .zip file is downloaded and saved to your computer, it must be "unzipped" to access the individual files therein. Most computers today come installed with the software to accommodate this and double-clicking on the zip file will start the "unzip" or extraction process.

You can choose to download the format you desire. Jpg files will download much faster and if you're just going to print these or they're being used as a full-sized background, that's likely the format you want. .Png files are much larger in size and so take much longer to download, but if you are going to be utilizing these in photo editing software, this is the format you want. In .png files, there is a transparent background around the image, so you can layer it over any background you wish in your photo editing software, most of which will open and work with .png files. The .pdf files are read only and cannot be edited unless the item description specifically states otherwise.

If the format you desire is not listed in the description, please ask and usually I can provide those for you.


Printing Tips and Information

Printing on front and back:
If you have a printer that has a borderless option, use that for the patterned or solid color you're also printing on the back of your project sheet.
If you don't have that option, print the front first and make certain when you put it in the printer to print on the back that you have the top of the page inserted in the printer so that it will be the first end to be printed on. Otherwise, if you put it "upside down," when the back is printed, the white border areas that don't get printed may not match up on the front and the back and when you cut out cards, for instance, they may have areas of white on the back that was outside of the patterned printing area.

Paper options:
The paper you print on does make a big difference in the quality of your print. A low quality, low brightness copy paper will generally give you a poor print if you're printing colored images.
My favorite paper for printing most items is a double-sided photo-quality matte finish paper of at least 58 lb. weight. I find it works much better than general scrapbooking cardstock in terms of the color and sharpness of the images. Staples carries a house brand called Double-Sided Matte Photo Supreme and I find the quality is just as good as any of the slightly more expensive name brand equivalents.
However, when you need a lighter weight paper for things you're going to decoupage, for instance, you want to go with the highest quality paper within your weight range in terms of finish and brightness. Look for something that is specified as at least 90 brightness or super-bright white. 98 or 100 are even better. Presentation paper will generally give you a better quality print than a standard photocopy paper.
You generally will want a matte-type finish on the paper as opposed to a gloss.

Printer settings:
Even if you have the best, highest quality paper in the world, your results will not be what they could be if you don't have your printer set properly for that particular paper. Make sure you are familiar with your printer settings and the results you will get with different settings on different paper. When you open up your print command box, there should be a box to click that says "Settings," "Preferences," "Options," or some similar thing. Clicking on that will open up your printer settings, another box with several different selectable tabs. Generally, it defaults to open on the Paper/Quality tab, which is where you want to be. There are two items in this section that you need to select the proper setting for to get the best quality print.
First is the print quality. Somewhere within that box will be a line that says "Print Quality," with a down arrow to the right of the line. You want at least a 300 dpi setting or "highest quality" setting.
Second and perhaps most important is selecting the paper you are using to print on. The location and wording of this option will vary from printer to printer, but you're looking for something similar to "Paper Options" where it has size, source, type selections. You want to select the Type of Paper option, and again, the choices and wording are going to vary from printer to printer.
The following chart is a rule of thumb guide for averages for different paper types which you can use to select the paper option best suited to your paper. It's also helpful in selecting the best paper for what you intend to print:
Bond Weight Metric Weight Notes
16 lbs 50 g Lowest grade of copy paper
20 lbs 75 g Standard copy paper weight
27 lbs 100 g Presentation weight
32 lbs 120 g Flyer or foldable brochure weight
47 lbs 176 g Sturdy brochure or book paper weight
58 lbs 216 g Photo-quality paper minimum weight
67 lbs 253 g Average photo lab paper weight
105 lbs 385 g Heavy fine art paper/board
