I am designing marriage-annoucement postcards for friend’s who just eloped in Reno. They want a 1950’s travel postcard feel, something a little kitschy, like this postcard.
I am starting to research fonts that are similar to the ones used here (primarily in “Greetings” “from” and “Nevada”. There are so many garbage ‘retro’ fonts out there on the web, but I am looking for something that looks a little more authentic. I am also considering hand-lettering some of the copy, using a period-accurate font as a base. Are there any good internet resources for actual fonts from the 1950s? Or could anyone recommend fonts from Adobe Fonts that might be a good place to start?
