I just wanted to drop you a line to let you know that I LOVE the CD. It is truly fab and exactly
what I have been wanting. The book is also great. Well done!

Cool Site, and a great product. I am a fanatic for the ultra cool 50's stuff.
Just wondering though, how did your vectors turn out so accurate ? As an artists I create my own bitmaps, and need to put them on an upcoming web site.
|From: macroboy <email@example.com>
i saw your website and think your retro ad art collection looks fantastic. I know a little about copyright law from some research I've done so I'm wondering how you deterimined these images were okay to use (I'm assuming they were public domain).
Yours is the first collection of this type I've seen and it looks great.
I think I'll have to order it!

I have just found your web site.
On the retro fonts, When I tried to find some of them on Photoshop 4, which I have. I can only find about a third of them.
Are you using Photoshop 5 ??
PS. Fantastic clip art you have got.

I must join the club and say your art and website are very impressive. I am specifically looking for "Jetsons" type clip art - that is, art made from 1950s people's conceptions of what life would be like in the year 2000. You know, robot maids, flying cars, moving sidewalks, etc..
Is there any such art in your collection? I would appreciate any help you
could give me.

Do you sell just your print catalog. If so how much is it? Great web

Hi! i love your images!! I'm communications director for a health care workers union in Pennsylvania and am looking for some really nice retro union art. Do you know of any online or would you consider any commissions? We're looking specifically for images of labor solidarity and anything health care related...will consider some industry related sources as well. We need the images primarily for our web site but we're also considering commissioning an original poster for our 25th anniversary in July.
Please let me know if you have any ideas or do consider commissioned work.

Hello, I am going to be developing a Website very soon, with the domain
name, Nutritionists.com. Does your cd contain food art and images like
the sun, fruit, and scenes of people exercising? As a child of the
fifties, I love this style, it's classy and very cheerful. I want to use
images like these in my website and promotional materials. I also know I
want to develop a logo from them. I will order if you have a good
variety of health and nutrition related images, do you? Sincerely,

I think your images are great and I would like to use a few of them as spot
illustrations on my personal website. I would credit your company, of
course, and provide a link back to your site. My site is for non-commercial

Hi Again Tony:
In all the years I've used Macs, I've rarely used their graphics
capabilities. What a shame, but that will now change with my new iMac. it's
a great machine compared to all the rest I've used through the years.
So, I'm going to work with the Retro Ad artwork & incorporate it into my
documents. I've written a travel security book & am going to use the artwork
as icons for chapter headings, & of course, for the title page/cover.
The use of this type of graphics material is highly unusual for security
consultants. But, I prefer to be different from the crowd. And so do my
clients, I guess.

You really have a fantastic product. I hope awareness grows (which would go

Hello....Love your fifties art graphics collection. What I need however, is
a collection of graphic illustrations in todays styles. Do you have or
could you recommend one. Thank You.....Darryll Hall

I'm a big fan of your Retroad art page. I think you might like the original art at my page http://www.squaresville.com
It's got full color original "retro", "deco" and 70s "cubist" style clipart, plus fonts and more. I'd love to get a link on your page, and know if you might want me to contribute some art. I look forward to hearing from you.
|hello! Great site. Very easy to follow. One thing tho. As an Art Director in an ad agency, I cannot just pick up the company credit card and order any CD I want. I must first "sell" the ideas to my Creative Director. THEN, he may let me purchase the product...if the client likes the comp. SO. What would help us art directors out is...put a LOW RES version of ALL the art on your site. So that we may do SEARCHES to see if you even have art that we can use.
For example. I am looking for a retro woman who has an angry face. I cannot purchase your CD, tho I know that you probably have it, becase I cant be sure.
|From: Lonnie Hale <firstname.lastname@example.org>
This stuff looks great. However I am in need of some specific types of
imagery. The theme is Muscle Beach. Can I see low resolution samples
before I purchase the CD?

Subject: Enlarging RetroArt graphics?
I'm curious as to how to enlarge the small thumbnail-esque pics to a full-page size without the bitmap edging (the computer-ness). Can you explain to me how to do this on PhotoShop?
Thanks! Great site!

Hey, great site!
I was wondering if you were going to do anything from the 1970's-1980's as far as "retro" art?
Any help would be appreciated!

I've got your "Retro Ad Art" collection.... extremely cool; getting a lot of milage out of it here at work. Any plans for additional collections of art from the same period or earlier? How 'bout photography? Anything at all, please let me know.

Thank you for sending all the images via e-mail. We just received the CD and the catalog too!
Just wanted to thank you for pulling through for us. Your patience and service level are to be admired, especially given the circumstances.
I'm working on a project for some interior wall murals and *LOVE* your stuff! However, I need to put together a small presentation of my concepts to my boss and it would help a great deal if i could get some examples to show.
could you e-mail me back a couple ads and "snappy sayings" ? or perhaps faxing?
It would be appreciated. THANKS!
|Sure looks good to us. Have you had any bites? Talk to you soon.......

|Hello. I am the online editor of a new commercial Web site we're launching on June 1st.
We love your Retro Ad Art clipart package and are considering purchasing it. I just want to check on the requirements for using your art throughout our site. Would we need to credit you?
Also, would your company be open to some sort of deal where we provide you with ad space and/or hyperlinks in trade for art?
Person X <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Thanks for the quick information. I appreciated you checking on it for me. We like your collection, and are recommending it for inclusion in the project we are working on. The main reason I was curious if the clips were yours was because I was wanting to find some clips of individuals rather than complete ad layouts. I couldn't tell from your sample pages whether or not "retro people" would be on the CD ROM, although we could possible extract a number of them from the full layouts. I have looked at the Havana Street material, but liked yours better.

|Recently purchased Retro Ad Art-Love it! Will we see Retro II? More, please! Great work, wonderful selection!

|buenos morning: terrific looking site - you guys did a great job putting it together. the ad art is equally great. overall, an excellent job. i'll probably call later & order the cd-rom but wanted to let you know how well i thought you did with the website and how effectively it moved the product.
Thank you for the CD of retro ad art - as you can tell, it's a hit here at Wacom already. You folks have done a fantastic job of cleaning and restoring some gorgeous artwork. I also visited your web site, and I really enjoyed your eclectic styles and refusal to fit into any particular pigeonhole.
I'm glad you enjoy our tablets - I'll certainly enjoy your retro art.
|Hi...what a great collection of art! Can't wait to get my grubby little hands on the collection...however, I need to know what your usage policies (royalties etc.) are before my company decides to purchase. I couldn't find the info on your site. Thanks and I hope to hear from you REAL SOON!
|To: Tony Bosley, Creative Director
Thanks very much for your reply to my question. As I said before, the Retro Ad Art is TERRIFIC! I am a security consultant & have just written a book for Travel Security For The Business Traveler. Sounds boring, but it's been well received by some of my large clients. In fact, it could sell world-wide.
I found some of your artwork, airplanes, hotels, taxis, etc., to be PERFECT for my chapters. My book is different from every other that's been published, for security. I took an entirely different direction for the text, so that people actually read it, & enjoy it.
Well, I'm rambling. The retro art is ideal for the work I've done, because I've tried to be different. As is your art.
So, I'm getting a copy of Photoshop to try to fit the ads as icons for chapters & sections. Again, I can't tell you how terrific they are, & perfect for me.
I will probably need your help as I make progress.
And I WILL be certain to give credit for any work that is included in the final design. I've never done this before, so it's exciting & I'm sure you'll be pleased with our application of your work.
|Thanks for the follow up - I did in fact purchase the CD probably the first week after the phones were up and running. Great product.
What an amazing site!

I am in the process of developing my website and would like to use some of the sample clip art you have posted on your site. I would be absolutely thrilled if you were to permit me to use your clip art, and in return and I will provide a link from my site to yours with a BIG mention of where the wonderful art came from.
Please let me know if this would be acceptable, also, is there anywhere else I can obtain some cool clip art, especially animated gifs, that are tied into the retro theme?
