Have it in finest fast-drying, figure-molding nylon and laton taffeta in dream colors like this 15.95. Also to stand a man on his head... these marvelous Jantzen "Nylastic" racers 5.95... many other styles, many other most stores."

We love illustrations from the 1950s! Back when illustrations were drawn by hand, not using a computer program.

This illustration was created by Pete Hawley.

We also enjoy reading the copy in vintage ads - the wording is usually very appropriate for the era, and not the kind of wording you would see in magazine ads of today.


There are many ways you can use digital scans of vintage ads – both in your home decor and for your art projects. 

Here are some ideas to get you started:

  • Unique Gift Wrap - Download an image and have it printed on large format paper (i.e. 11″x17″) and use the paper as unique gift wrap. You can also print the image on your home printer and use the paper for small gifts.
  • Scrapbook Paper - Incorporate the digital image into your artwork, journals, or scrapbooks.
  • Gift Cards or Tags - Resize, scale, or crop the images and use them for gift tags, greeting cards, stickers, or placecards. 
  • Home DecorPrint a color copy of the ad, frame it and hang it in your home or office.
  • Iron-On Transfers - Print the ad on iron-on transfer paper and create t-shirts, tote bags, napkins, and other craft ideas with fabric.

We're sure you'll find lots of uses!
