Ephemera are vintage printed or written items which originally served some specific purpose and were not expected to be retained or preserved, once called “Paper Americana”, though ephemera is not necessarily American or paper for that matter.


The collecting has been expanded to include such things as tobacco tins, photographs, radio premiums, textile swatches, vinyl record albums, items made of celluloid or wood. Also included are various items which were indeed likely to have been saved, such as wedding invitations, marriage certificates, passports, birth certificates, wills, deeds, divorce papers, stock certificates, promissory notes, and many other vintage documents.
