Falcom Stationery

I fully admit to having a severe digital hoarding problem. When TLC learns this condition exists I'm certain to be the first person featured on the show about it. One of the things I hoard is any free artwork Falcom has ever posted on their site. They're in my list of top 3 favorite game developers alongside Nintendo and Square. Hmm.. I'm not sure if in the past 2-3 years I've played a game by any other developer than this trio.

Of these 3 developers, maybe of all developers really, Falcom gives away the most free artwork related to their games. Their homepage is updated constantly with free wallpapers and other random goodies. They take stuff down sometimes too, it's their prerogative. They still have pages up for games released in the 90s with free artwork and even service packs so it's a little uncommon for them to completely drop a section.

One free-then-deleted thing on Falcom's site was a section called "stationery" that they posted in 1997. It wasn't updated much if ever and was deleted in the early 2000s. This section had a collection of things I guess you could print out and use like stationery (obviously), cards, and even 3.5" disk labels. I saved it all off back then and it's still on my hard drive today. See, when you're a digital hoarder the first thing you do when you upgrade your hard drive is copy *everything* over from the old one with complete disregard for whether that's a good idea. On the plus side, it means I can share these and any other Falcom-obsessed digital hoarders can have them now too. Also for anyone who needs solutions to CS101 homework assignments from 1996, I've got you covered.

These images are in their original quality and resolution. Recall, these were posted in 1997 when everyone was on dial-up. If you had a 56.6 modem you were cutting edge since I'm pretty confident this was first year they were available. I realize with that statement someone will contact me all like "well technically blah blah blah". The rest of you get my point.

These are all copyright Falcom - they posted them publicly over 20 years ago and I assume they aren't interested in enforcing a copyright claim on them. If they ask me to take them down I will of course, after getting over the complete surprise of being contacted by them. Go ahead and assume you can't use these for commercial purposes although I have no idea why anyone would ever do that.
