About Us

Welcome to RetroClipArt.com!


You’ve just arrived at the #1, most popular and highest quality collection in the world of authentic B&W advertising images from the ‘40s and ‘50s.

We originally began this endeavor back in 1996, when we went online with our original, site RetroAdArt.com. After getting a lot of responses from people all across the country offering to sell us more collections of retro advertising art, we decided we needed to do something bigger, so we got to work and launched this site RetroClipArt.com in 2005, which now features over 4200 images.

Since then, we have joined forces with several affiliates, including Shutterstock, AdobeStock, Alamy, 123RF, DepositPhotos, Dreamstime, Bigstock and PixtaStock, who all carry our collection.

Interestingly, the images we have online represent less than 5% of our total inventory. Processing and vectorizing images is a very difficult task, but we have big plans to get a lot more amazing images into production soon so that they will be made available to the world and will thus be preserved and immortalized for all time!

We hope you enjoy your visit here. Have a look through the images, and if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to call us at 1-800-830-1212, or send us an email at info@retroclipart.com.
