Right now we have over 2000 images online, however we're busy processing hundreds of fabulous "new" retro images. We'll be uploading more and more of them to this shopping cart every month, so if you don't find what you're looking for today, be sure to drop back soon and get a load of the new stuff!


RetroClipArt.com was designed to provide you with high quality black & white retro advertising images in vector format, at very affordable prices. As graphic artists ourselves, we became disenchanted with the limited resources available for real retro clipart on the internet, so we decided to put our heads together and find a way to make this very popular style of artwork easily accessible to the public.

Many years of hard work have gone into the collection and processing of these images, as well as the creation of this online shopping cart. Our philosophy is simple: all the images in the Retro Clip Art collection must be professional quality illustrations and they must remain true to the style of artwork established by artists who actually lived in the '40s and '50s.

We have noticed that many clipart sources will often stock up their inventory with amateur illustrations to make their collections appear larger. This is extremely bothersome for professional designers who don't have time to waste wading through scads of poorly drawn images, trying to find something which they can actually use.  At RetroClipArt.com, you don't have to worry about that problem. Every single image we sell has been thoroughly screened and approved by our expert staff, and is guaranteed to be of professional caliber.

Other clipart resources attempt to market images which were drawn recently with a bit of a retro flair as authentic retro clipart, and go to great lengths to convince the public that it is indeed genuine.  We feel this is unfair, especially to younger generations who may not know the difference, so our goal is to set the record straight, and make sure everyone knows what real retro clip art ought to look like.  We also feel compelled to carry the torch on behalf of the hundreds of illustrators of that era who devoted their lives to learning how to draw properly, and who are no longer here to defend their craft.

Authentic looking retro clip art cannot be conjured up by modern-day artists. We simply cannot return to the frame of mind of 50 or 60 years ago and create artwork from scratch with the same combination of naivety and charm.  We can't re-invent all the real situations and circumstances which led up to these drawings being conceived of in the first place, and anyone who claims to be able to do this is only kidding themselves.

Those days are gone forever, but we are here to make sure this incredible style of artwork will live on forever, and the spirits of those original artists will never be forgotten.
