We love collections here at Flypaper HQ and as we’re both keen gardeners we were delighted to come across these two huge sets of vintage French seed pack illustrations at a local flea market store in Burgundy, France.

These scrumptiously coloured labels were printed from the mid to late 1800’s using a rich multi-layered chromolithograph printing process that ceased being used over 100 years ago so they are now almost certainly out of Copyright.

They were printed on sheets then cut into slips of paper that were later glued to little white paper seed packs with their planting instructions hand block printed on their backs. We have samples of these and are illustrated as above. As they were hand-cut these gloriously rich labels differ slightly in sizes though we have scanned all in the same print-friendly 300dpi and are shipped in normal Jpeg. Each label is around 2800 by 4600 pixels.

Each pack contains around 80 different labels and has been lovingly scanned and cleaned-up where needed.

Possible uses include: Decoupage, graphics, bunting, posters , greeting-cards, napkins, menus, invitations, scapbooking, image transferring, cushion covers and stickers, the possibilities are endless!
