These collections are NOT generic clipart collections.
high-quality images are colorful digital web graphics (except for some black and white or sepia
diagrams, maps, sketches or charts), are derived from vintage ephemera resources,
and are generally collected, scanned, photographed, cropped or enhanced in some way to create higher quality
images and format for your personal use. I "curate"
(catalogue and customize) and package the images
as themed collections of high-quality for your pages and
In some cases, you might want to use or download a graphics editor for editing imagery that needs cleanup, cropping or resizing to suit your own needs. Scans of book pages are generally not cropped. Sizes are assorted, some ephemera may have original marks, faint writing, age or fingerprint ghosting, signatures (on old greeting cards) etc. You will also need the ability to extract large sizes of .zip files and saving them to your computer files. Most systems do have a built-in zip file extractor. If not, you can easily find and download free .zip file apps from the web.
.Zip file downloads are regularly tested. We don't have a tech staff
to help you if you cannot download. Please try emptying your computer's
temporary files, trash bin, cookies folder, and check your security and
anti-virus/malware settings to be sure that you can download files from
the web, that you have room on your hard drive to download, extract and
save the images. Best to do that before attempting the downloads. There
is absolutely no refund for purchased packages that you cannot download
or use. Once our premium graphics leave this site, they're technically
out in the wild, and we have no idea of their ultimate destination.

Graphics Sourced From Vintage Ephemera

Gardening, recipe cards, florals, as well as retro home and garden themes
- Vintage greeting and trade card fronts and all types of nostalgic ephemera to use as the original greetings, or crop out/eliminate
or add text, and save separate pieces of the art tas new images to create new graphics from the card's original themed graphics.
Your computer probably has a native graphics editing program that can handle simple cropping and resizing chores.
You'll need a graphics or photo editor to do the bigger stuff, like creating new images from pieces you've cropped, applying
image effects, or spraying out texts and removing backgrounds to personalize the art. There are several basic free apps for that.
