Old is New Again with Vintage Clip Art

Style is cyclical and everything eventually comes back into style. That’s why we love these vintage and retro-inspired clip art designs recently added to Easy View. Each week, we create new layouts and designs for you to use. These were a request from a customer so keep suggesting new art and you might eventually see it here soon.

Vintage t-shirt designs are always popular. And they are simple to achieve by following a few style guidelines. Here, we used our wire birdcage clip art and framed it with a Pinterest-worthy inspirational quote in Paris, one of latest fonts.

Another unique feature of the vintage look is a distressed image. Below, we started with our classic pick-up truck and antique sewing machine clip art.

Then, we added each to an already distressed QBU-304 layout to create a custom transfer that could be used to promote an antiques or sewing business.

To really enhance the vintage look of these designs, you can begin by selecting apparel that looks more traditional than modern. Choosing a water-based ink transfer, like AquaTru, will highlight the distressed appearance of your design. And if you’re using water-based, you’ll likely want to print on 100% cotton for a more authentic look.

Happy Pressing!

We are always looking for unique water ski clip art and have NEVER seen anything better than what we can come up with and possibly you can put your people on that.
Thanks
