Endless Variety, Stunning Quality: The Perfect Vintage Bundle for Designers

As a team of creative geeks, we have been geeking out over this collection all week long. We wanted to follow up our previous vintage bundle with something even more special, and this all new collection brings you some of the best vintage/retro design resources in the world, for a whopping 91% off.

This is our biggest design bundle yet, and we’re sure you’ll love it. Check out why it’s so special:

  • VARIETY: There is a ton of variety in this bundle, giving you essentially an entire library of design resources in a single deal. This collection includes textures, brushes, icons, clip art, logo/badge templates, hand-drawn vectors and much much more! All in all, there are well over 1000 amazing resources in this bundle.
  • QUALITY: We’ve focused entirely on quality with this bundle, ensuring that every item included is meticulously crafted. Every texture is incredibly high-res and sharp, many clip art items come in a range of variations/styles and the badges/vectors come in a variety of file types. In short, a ton of thought and time has gone into crafting each one of these items, and the result is that you get complete creative control when using them.
  • EXTENDED LICENSE: All 7 best-selling design shops involved in this bundle have agreed to a fully extended license. This means that not only are these items good for personal/commercial usage, but you can use them in work that you resell. This is the best type of design license, and usually ramps up the price massively. We’re including it at no extra cost to you.

Keep scrolling and check out the HUGE amount of vintage resources included. We hope you love these items as much as we do!

Distressed Vector Maps & Charts

This collection of distressed vector maps and charts is ideal for creating photo montages, illustrations and information graphics. The preview images demonstrate some examples of compositions that can be created using this collection.

Because they are vector artwork they are resolution independent so you can scale them to any size required. This makes them much more flexible than bitmap and pixel textures that have a limited maximum resolution.

Full editing of the source files requires a vector application such as Adobe Illustrator, CorelDRAW or Inkscape. You can also open each texture with a transparent background at any resolution required (rasterizing) in an image application such as Adobe Photoshop.

Vintage Retro Design Bundle

20 Halftone Vector Textures

This collection of 20 vector halftone textures is perfect for adding depth to a project. They work particularly well when layered above photographs to create a distressed grunge or vintage effects, as backgrounds or as part of montage style illustrations.

Because they are vector artwork they are resolution independent so you can scale them to any size required. This makes them much more flexible than bitmap and pixel textures that have a limited maximum resolution.

The complete collection is supplied as 20 individual Illustrator 8.0 eps files and so that they are compatible with all vector and bitmap applications. I’ve also included 20 individual high resolution PNG files with transparent backgrounds.

Vintage Retro Design Bundle

Vintage Polaroid Effects (Mockup Template)

Create textured, vintage polaroid effects easily with your own images, using this layered Photoshop mockup.

Transparent background for flexibility.

The document measures 400 x 470mm and 300dpi (4,724 x 5,551 pixels) so it’s suitable for large print projects or can be resized for any screen based applications requiring lower resolutions.

Includes 1 example image together with a simple text file that has instructions about how to use the mockup.

Supplied as a master layered Photoshop CS6 document that uses a Smart Object layer to easily edit content with both mono or colour photos or artwork.

An alternative layered version is also supplied for older versions of Photoshop that may not support the Smart Object layer.

Vintage Retro Design Bundle

Vintage Textures – 10 Pack

This pack of 10 full-page EPS vector and PNG textures originated from high resolution photographs of various real life surfaces. The result is a collection of authentic feeling textures. A wide and diverse range of textures in the collection provide a wide range of textures from very subtle and organic noise/grain textures, to noticeable distressed/stamped textures. Whether you need a subtle touch on a clean modern project, or you need a more worn weathered look on a vintage/retro project, these high quality Illustrator textures are ready to deliver. Due to the vector nature of these textures, they can scale to any size that you need.

What’s included:

– 10 Individual Texture files in both vector EPS and PNG format. Both formats have transparent backgrounds.
– A PDF texture guide to provide a handy overview of the textures.

Vintage Retro Design Bundle

50 States – Hand Illustrated

This hand drawn set of all U.S. 50 states is ready for your next state project! Every state was individually drawn by pen before scanning into the computer and converting to a vector EPS.

All of the states were hand drawn in relative to scale to each other. As a result, the larger states have greater detail than the smaller states (compare the detail in the massive Alaska state to the the tiny and less-detailed Massachusetts state in the product previews).

Folded paper textures volume 01

Ever wanted to add fake folds to a poster design to make it look more genuine? Ever wanted to add a few lines through your composition for an increased dynamic effect?

Well, now you can! These 12 folded paper textures are the perfect tool to accomplish these goals, and much more. Add them to the top of your layer stack, switch the blending mode to screen, tinker with the opacity slider, and be done in no time. You could also experiment by inverting the texture and using other blending modes, like multiply, color burn, linear burn, and beyond.

All of these have been carefully folded and/or crumpled by hand, then scanned in at 600 dpi and edited to retain as much detail as possible, while offering an optimum level of contrast.

Vintage Retro Design Bundle

Metal dumpster texture pack

Back in October 2013, there was a big ol’ dumpster in a parking lot. Its surface was banged and worn by years of use, and the various rust and scratches patterns were beautiful.

Since no designer’s library of resources is complete without rust textures, I went ahead and snapped as many shots I could from the rusty beast. The result is a series of 45 textures sized at 3264×2448 pixels that go from subtle speckles in the paint to heavily destroyed and rusted metal.

Vintage Retro Design Bundle

Photocopy noise texture pack

These six textures have been lovingly crafted with an old laser copier with an increasingly faulty drum and toner combo, and a flat-bed scanner.

Each textures are scans of individual prints of a black document. They each have subtle variations in the dust and noise patterns, making them unique. The last texture of the set was the last print the drum and toner agreed to generate before giving up.

Each of the images are around 4750×6300 pixels @ 600 dpi.

Noise and dust textures are perfect to add a subtle depth to your designs. Using them is very simple: just switch your layer’s blending mode to “Screen,” and play with the opacity slider.

Hand Drawn Curls & Banners Vol. 4

Here’s an all new pack with over 170 individual, hand-drawn elements for your creative pleasure. This time, I’ve included more floral elements, leaves, arrows, branches, wine bottles, and of course, more banners and curls. The sky’s the limit with these elements!

Included in this .zip are both an .eps and .ai file which contain ALL the elements on a single canvas. both files can be opened with Adobe Illustrator CS or newer. Many of the elements are pretty small and it’s best if they’re scaled using vector editing software, so sorry, no .pngs. However, the vector files can be opened in Photoshop too. You’ll just have to use your lasso tool to select the ones you want, then just cut and paste into your new project. :)

Vintage Retro Design Bundle

12 Themed Badges

You are looking at twelve themed & textured badges! I’ve included the original .ai and .eps versions, as well as a Photoshop file (created with Smart Objects) that you will be able to edit if you have Adobe Illustrator CS4 or newer. If you just want to edit the vector files, you’ll only need Illustrator CS2. NOTE: These badges aren’t editable within Adobe Photoshop.

I’ve also include a set of simple instructions with all the FREE font links you’ll need. There are a bunch, so get ready to download! :)

  2. Roz Fruchtman says:

    OMG ~ I was waiting to see this week’s offering. I am SPEECHLESS and if you knew me well, not much makes me speechless.

    Like many others, I have been purchasing different packages that have ONLY ONE “similar” element of what you are offering AS … ONE OF MANY elements in ONE package!

    The possibilities are endless. The EXTENDED license makes it SCREAM to be purchased ;)

    I can’t wait to bring this to my community!

    THANK YOU “Design Deals” for making design so much easier for those with LIMITED budgets and BIG ideas! ~Roz Fruchtman

    • Matt Slightam says:

      Thanks Roz, great to see the latest bundle going down so well :D As a self confessed illustration addict I love the vector textures especially!

    Hello,

    I have purchased the above deal, however the link to download the files is not showing up.

  9. Julien says:

    A question : can we use this pack for creating creative design for “sales on demand” like zazzle, cafe press… ???
    thks

    • Tom Ross says:

      Hey Julien,

      Great question. This kind of usage is acceptable, under the ‘extended license’ for this deal. As stated in the terms, you may only not resell these resources directly, or as part of goods whereby the items can be extracted in their original form. Using them within wider creative designs is ok.

      I hope this helps, and we’d love to see what you use them for :).

  11. Hans Hubers says:

    Hey,

    What are the differences between this bundle and ‘The Most Comprehensive Vintage Design Bundle of All Time’? Or are they completely different? Don’t know which one i should buy..
    Can you help me?

    Thank you,

    Hans

    • Tom Ross says:

      Great question Hans. This bundle is entirely new, and totally different from the previous Comprehensive Vintage Bundle. Both bundles are filled with best-selling vintage and retro design resources, but there is no crossover between the two. I hope this helps :).

  12. I just read how the dumpster textures came about…
    – What a world we live in LOL ~ who would think that one could go out and take pictures of rusting dumpsters and make money selling them! Art is really amazing to me! ;) I LOVE IT!!! I find it so exciting ~ REALLY!
    Thank You for bringing these magnificent textures and backgrounds to us and igniting our own creativity! I mean this sincerely! It’s absolutely fabulous!

    • Tom Ross says:

      Thanks Roz! Simon did a fantastic job with the dumpster textures. He definitely finds inspiration in every day life – he’s a true creative. I’ve just been working with those textures today on a new piece. They’re really versatile! Let us know what you create using them.

    • Simon H. says:

      I confess that I’m spending way too much time looking around for excuses to make new resources.

    I’ve done my very very best to ignore this scrumptious bundle — it’s not as if I really really really need it after all! But having seen the tutorial of the London postcard my willpower turned to marshmallow and I’m downloading the bundle as I type this. How bad is that!! Goodness, do I have to thank you every week for your generous and super-lovely bundles? Well, here I go again — thank you.

    • Tom Ross says:

      Haha this is awesome. Thank YOU for the amazing feedback as always Ann, we hope that you love your brand new bundle. And don’t worry, we have zero control when it comes to lovely design goodies either! ;)

  14. Rachel says:

    Hi guys,

    I just have a question on the vector files. Do most of these come in both .ai and .eps format or just .eps? And if they only come in .eps, can they be opened with CS5?

    Thanks!

    • Tom Ross says:

      Hey Rachel, good question. Virtually all of the vector files also come in .eps formats too, and work great in CS5. The only vector files available in just .ai format are the Logos From The Outdoors pack.

  15. LVarella says:

    Do they come on CDs?

    • Tom Ross says:

      I’m afraid not. This a digital bundle, available for download. We have split the download into smaller parts to make it easier for you guys though.

  16. Julien Daunais says:

    Wow this is insane.
    Again, thanks a lot!

  17. Joseph says:

    Wow, what an shockingly amazing bundle. There is so much awesomeness in this bundle they had to split it into TWO download files cause one couldn’t handle it.

    • Tom Ross says:

      Thanks so much Joseph! Actually we’ve split this into 11 download parts, to make it more manageable for people. We really appreciate your support :).

  18. LVarella says:

    How much hard drive space is required to download the entire bundle? Can I only download graphics as needed?

    • Tom Ross says:

      Around 5GB of space is needed for this bundle (it’s pretty huge!). We have split the download into sections, so of course you can download it in parts, or only download the sections you need at this time. I hope this helps, and please let us know if you have any other questions.

  19. Julie Meredith says:

    Great tutorial Simon… I keep trying to tell my friends that these items DON’T ALWAYS have to be used AS IS… once you start playing with levels, curves, adjustment layers, blend modes, resizing, cropping, etc., the possibilities are infinite and these deals become an even greater value. They often wonder/worry about what goes on in my head… it’s called an imagination people ;) and the deals from Design Cuts do an amazing job of inspiring and feeding that imagination.

    • Tom Ross says:

      Absolutely Julie! We love taking fantastic design resources, and then making them our own. As creatives we definitely shouldn’t just use all these resources right out the box, plonk them into our work and call it a day. They’re wonderful time savers, but I agree, we should let our imagination take them to the next level within our own projects. Thanks as always for all your support, you rock Julie! :)

    • Simon H. says:

      Thanks for the kind words. And yep, resources can (and probably should) be tweaked for the project at hand. They’re here to help you reach your objective, and shouldn’t be the design in themselves.

      That’s true of textures, but also of vector resources, bits and pieces of code, etc.

  20. Andrew says:

    I think I’ve purchased every bundle you have offered since I started subscribing to Blog Spoon Graphics. The deals are more amazing than anything else other websites have to offer, and, of course, the quality of work is superior. Best of the Best!! Keep’em coming! “BUY DEAL NOW”, why, yes… I believe I will. :)

    This deal will be over before the first of the new month, eh? Aw, shucks! Maybe next time.

    Ok, I gave up. I really tried to ignore this bundle over the last days. After I bought the last two deals I was convinced that this time I could resist the temptation.

    What then happened: I visited designcuts every day to take another look at the current bundle. Like a little kid that pressed his nose against the window of his favorite toy store, I checked out the items over and over again – with open mouth ;-)

    End of the story: the little kid in me is happy now and the “toy store” has another customer.

    Thanks for your outstanding deals! Keep up your good work and have a good weekend!

    BR,

    Michael

    • Tina Muller says:

      Haha, thank you so much for the lovely comment. Sorry we keep tempting you, Michael. But you are right this deal is really quite something.

      I get the kid in a toy shop feeling every time we run a font bundle. lol

      I hope you enjoy your new resources. :)

    Hmmm….I think I might have to snag this one.

    Please please bring it back :)

    • Tom Ross says:

      Hey Zeana, thanks for asking. We do sometimes re-run old deals a special bonuses, attached to our newer deals. I’ve dropped you an email about this.

    I would like to comment to Simon on this cool tut! Honestly, I saw it was by you and I wanted to see what your work entailed – how you do things. So, and I don’t usually do this, I stuck pretty much to the tut. I had actually figured out how to paste a texture onto a mask myself. I just never did it this often. I see that this adds up and really makes a big effect on the piece. I will start trying it more often.

    I like to interject either my own stock for some of the given or change it in someway so I am having to learn some of it myself. (Often, it is because the given resources are from paid stock sites, so, I find a similar sub.) Kind of like ‘the hard way’, but, I find it extremely effective.

    One question, though, when you do the ‘Levels’, ‘Desatutare, and ‘Invert’, do you do those with adjustment layers or directly?

    I just want to add that my file size was almost 2 gigs. Does that sound right? I did use adjustment layers for everything.
    You write an awesome tut! Thank you very much!

    And, a big thanks to Tom and crew for bringing us this awesome package!

      Hey Su,

      Thank you so much for your kind words!

      In this specific case, I actually did the levels, etc., without adjustment levels. Is saves a bit on file size, but not much.

      Since writing this tutorial: http://www.designcuts.com/design-cuts-deals/2-lil-owls-creative-textures-and-digital-papers-collection/how-to-use-textures-the-right-way/, I’ve been using adjustment layers all the time, because it’s better practice.

      Ultimately, I think it depends of the piece’s end goal. If it’s something you’ll reuse a lot (for a poster, then for a small flyer, then for a wallpaper, etc.), it’s good to have the flexibility of adjustment layers. If you’ll just create the piece and use it once, you could get away without adjustment layers.

      Oh, and yes, discovering how to paste a texture in a layer mask was the same awakening. It opens up so many new possibilities!

  29. This looks fantastic! I would love to purchase. please let me know if there is a way.

    Kind regards,
    Klaas

      Hey Klaas, I’m afraid this bundle is now well and truly finished, so I won’t be able to set you up with this. However we do sometimes re-run an older deal in conjunction with a new one, and as the Ultimate Vintage and Retro Design Bundle has not been re-run yet, the chances are very high that there will be a re-run in the near future.
      I will be sure to get in touch with you when this bundle is alive again.

    I stumbled across this deal after it had already expired. So sad! Please let me know if it does re-run. It looks awesome. Thanks so much!

      Hey Kristen, I’m afraid this deal is now well and truly finished. Sorry about that. We do however re-run some of our deals, so you should see this back in the game in the near future. :)
