This is an actual patent application drawing for a clothesline reel. I’ve cleaned this vintage ephemera up and saved it on two different backgrounds to make it easy to use. This vintage patent graphic is out of copyright (it’s from 1902) and can be used in a variety of ways.

Print the Vintage Patent Drawings
Print this out onto plain or decorative paper, I like the antiqued ones from Amazon, shown below. They have borders so are best for printing the full size Pdf
Printing the Vintage Patent Graphics
If you want an aged look you can use antiqued paper like the sheets above, tea dyed paper or plain copy paper or cardstock. If you have plain paper but want a vintage finish, print the vintage background version of the patent graphic, shown below.
Which Vintage Patent Graphic File do I Need?
Use the pdf to print full size images, just click and print. If you want to modify the size, use the jpeg and any graphics program. Learn more about choosing the right filetype for Printables here:
