Valentine’s Day is not only about a romantic date with the most important person in your life.
You can share your love with people that are closest to you or those you can’t see in person. With friends on Facebook or book club members. With co-workers and neighbors.
And in digital times, it’s easier than ever before.
Take a look at a wonderful collection of Valentine’s Day cards digitized by the good people from The New York Public Library.
We have slightly retouched the cards to make texts sharper and colors more vibrant. These valentines will look great in your email, on a Facebook wall or Twitter timeline.
To download the card, save it to your computer by right-clicking on it and choosing the save-image option from a drop-down menu. On a Mac, click on an image while holding down the Control key, and select “Save Image As.”
You can obviously use social media buttons to share your favorite cards directly to social network of your choice. When sharing to social media, make sure to add the link to the NYPL Valentine’s Day cards catalog.
