Happy Weekend Ledger freebies

Do you like ledgers?

Yesterday, was spent uploading some ledgers
to Flickr (JPEGs) and Acrobat (PDFs)
I've been meaning to share them with you, since I saved them
from the Public Domain, but I couldn't find the source
(been searching for a year or so & I wish I could link)...

...but, long story short, I decided to go ahead,
tested them to be sure they'd print at high quality...

I also made the ledgers into PDFs with two per page for some,
so that they would print automatically at their maximum size
(not bigger so that you don't lose quality)

Anywho, enough rambling, here they are
(there are some scans I've made and posted previously here too):

Simply click the ledger you like to go download it on Flickr
(You'll find the link to Acrobat on each Flickr page, if you'd like PDFs)

How to save the JPG on flickr:

1) Click on the image below to go to flickr
2) Then Right click on the image in flickr & a box should open
3) Beside "View all sizes:" select original
4) Right click and select "save image as"
(or if your browser is explorer it will say "save picture as")

in the set on Flickr here

(and I'll be adding to that set as time goes on)

If you'd like more modern lined paper,
you can find it here with other freebies:

And here are a couple of examples
of how I like to use ledgers:

Hope you find them useful!

P.S. Mary thanks again for pointing out that these might be useful & for letting me know about the Strathmore visual journal online workshops. How can something that neat be free?! :o)

As a family historian/wordcrafter, it makes me cringe to see crafters use original materials such as ledgers in their products. I'm so glad that you scanned these pages to print off. Good for you! :)
