Alphabet Flash Cards

Printable Alphabet Flash Cards

free printable alphabet flash cards

Play and learn ABCs with these free printable alphabet flash cards. This set includes 26 flash cards with our lovely original illustrations in high resolution PDF format. Simple to download and print on a PC or Mac. Each page has 4 cards and the last page has a template for the wallet to keep all your alphabet flash cards together.


Try printing them on card stock paper as they feel nicer to handle and survive longer after repeated use.

Remember to select the correct page number you wish to print, or select ‘print all’ if you’ve loaded all 7 sheets of papers ready to go!

Cut them out with scissors or a craft knife and ruler (yes, they have rounded corners and you may ignore them if it’s too fiddly but we think they look better and feel friendlier to the little fingers.)

Print them as many times as you want – reprint them if they are worn out or you want to decorate your girl’s or boy’s room with them, or if you think the set will make a nice present for someone.

Alternative Cards

Thanks to everybody who commented and made suggestions for alternative versions. We always listen to all of it and try to reflect it. Below you will find new choices from all of your suggestions. Hope they are useful! They are only available in US letter format, but if you want to print them on A4, just print without scaling. When the printer says that the artwork exceeds the print area and asks whether you still want to print it, just choose ‘yes’.

Letters only version

This is a version without the words – only with alphabets and illustrations. This can be useful if you want to ask children to guess the words using the alphabet as a clue.

Small cards without words

Alternative font version

Here we offer our alphabet flash cards in an alternative font. The small ‘a’ and ‘g’ are different and also ‘j’ and ‘i’ have a more curly form.

Small cards in alternative font

Alternative cards – New words for O,I,G and a new hat!

Following your suggestions, we’ve created alternative cards for O (for Octopus), I (for Igloo, for a short ‘i’), G (for Giraffe) and H (for Hat, which is the same as in our original card, but you sometimes need a new design of a hat! We had a gentleman’s hat in the first set, this is lady’s hat.)

    Absolutely fabulous. My grandson is starting kindergarten and is having a hard time learning ABC’s. I have printed these and taped them in various areas around the house so that if we are near one we practice with it. Thank you.

    • mrprintables

      Thanks Connie. Hope your grandson enjoys these cards!

  • Gilberto Gutierrez

    This website is awesome! There is a lot of learning materials for my little one’s. I have bought flash cards and other learning stuff and my girls always find destroy them. Now I will just print them from this websit! Thank You for the materials!

  • priscilla

    Great website. Would it be possible for the flashcards with the letters, pictures and word (on one card) be in a much smaller version cause they are too large. Thanks

  • suzannefrees

    Fantabulous!!! Absotively Fantabulous!!! To Infinity and Beyond!!! I have used your paper dolls and labels, but did not know you had pages like this also. LOVE!!! Living paycheck to paycheck leaves little spare change for “cool stuff”. These cards will be a hit for school. I LOVE that you have a pencil box and eraser template that is blank. We cannot affort to print much in color. A thought for the flash cards…without color, so the kids can personalize them by coloring them in for themselves. Some kids learn better by doing than by seeing, coloring the pictures in for themselves might help the letters “stick” a bit better. And for people like us who do not always have a color cartridge in the cupboard, this would be a great help. Could you email me if, down the road, in your “spare time”, you make a blank/black and white outline set of cards? Again, Absotively Fantabulous to Infinity and Beyond!!! From Port Huron, MI, USA

    • mrprintables

      Thank you so much for your nice words! If I can, I’m hoping to update more versions but can’t promise anything right now because I have so little time – hope you understand. In the meantime, you could use the alphabet coloring pages. They have the same drawings as the flash cards so perfect for using together.

      • suzannefrees

        Thank you, and again, LOVE this and all you offer. No wonder you are so busy!

  • Dzenana Hajrovic-Kavazovic

    I am in love with your site. Beautiful work. I printed some cards for my 2 yr old a while back, but doesn’t compare to these. Will definitely use these. Great work :)

  • Persa_dr

    This is an awesome website, great work, congratulations!!!!!!

  • Vicki Dunkerly

    Love these and the additions you’ve made are great, especially the different font for “a” and “g” and i for igloo. The only other thing I would find useful is x as in fox or exit as opposed to xylophone or even x-ray – what a confusing language!

  • Emma

    helping my 5 year old to learn to read and teacher suggested making them flash cards…. what would be helpful is individual cards for the upper case and lower case letters as we can then put them together and create words and help her learn to blend words… these cards are brill though for younger children and i will be using them with my 18 month old :)

  • Emma

    Just found the individual cards lol should have looked around more first!

  • Debbie Hunter Ramsey

    Beautiful cards. Can you make more alternative cards showing the long vowel sound for each vowel? Such as: a as in ape, e as in eel, i as in icycle, o as in orange, u as in unicorn . Thanks

  • anna-rose mack

    pretty good site for preschool teachers,it really makes the job easy .Thank you.I cannot seem to find a set of flash cards with clothing though.Do u have any at all?

  • Michele Grasso

    Page 13 on the large cards wont print. Can’t finish the alphabet without y and z.

  • CubbiBear

    Wonderful site for educational tools. My young nephews will love this stuff as much as I do. I might “help” them color the great pictures.

  • Jennifer Salazar

    I would have loved to use these cards, but as others have previously stated by Vickie it’s hard to teach the sound of “X” when there is other a xylophone or X-ray. All new cards or sound posters in the classroom have a box or a fox to make the sound. Is there any way you could do another version of X? I would LOVE to use these.

  • Robin

    Love these cards!!! Since it looks like you are open to suggestions – I’m thinking the Y for yacht looks more like a sailboat!!!

  • Tanya Marie Davis

    This website is great! Thank you! I’m a work from home mom with 2 boys and 2 girls. The boys are 2 and 4 and these are excellent for their learning adventures!

  • Robin

    What am I doing wrong? Printed & cut these beautiful cards. Mod Podged them to a piece of chalk painted wood, started to Mod Podge the top as a sealer & the ink smeared on some colors (red & pink). Am I using the wrong type of printer for this?

  • Nel TY

    I am a teacher from Catalonia (Spain). I love your printables, but I need to edit them because of the type of font. Here, our pupils use Massallera in kindergarten and your font may be is a little bit difficult for them to understand the letters. Would you mind to send me some file I could edit? Thank you!
