Here’s a detailed overview of what’s included in this comprehensive vintage collection:

Over 1000 High-Quality Vintage Illustrations:

All of the Illustrations that you see within this glorious pack have been collected from our personal collection of vintage books (Over $2500 worth of books and materials went into making this pack!). Many of the vintage illustration packs that you find today are sourced from online libraries, and subsequently the quality of these graphics suffers. However, with over 28 hours scanning, 100s of hours editing, and countless amounts of caffeine, every single illustration within this pack has been restored and digitalized to the highest possible quality.

Each piece is available in 2 different formats; Vector (.AI AND .EPS) and .PNG (An Entirely Transparent 300ppi image), meaning that this pack is completely flexible and will work with all graphic applications.

33 ‘One of a Kind’ Paper Ephemera Scans:

While hunting for our vintage books, we often come across Paper Ephemera (old stationery, letters, receipts, etc.) and some of them are just too good to miss out on. Included in this pack, you will discover 33 individual pieces that are perfect for creating backgrounds, collages, combining with the other collections within this pack, and so much more.

Just like the illustrations, these pieces were individually scanned at a whopping 1200ppi for the highest possible quality, and edited with entirely transparent backgrounds; perfect for overlapping! (‘Shadow’ and ‘No Shadow’ options included!). Ranging from 4000px to 10,000px on the longest length, the level of detail is stunning.

32 Beautifully Aged Paper Textures:

Like a fine wine, these 32 Paper Textures have got better with age. Available in three styles; Original, Black and White, and my favourite, Transparent.

This collection is perfect for backgrounds, with the addition of the transparent option; combining with photography, typography, illustrations, and even other textures are effective ways to put these to work.

12 Seamless Vintage (and rare) Patterns:

The patterns within this collection were discovered inside of a 106-year-old book that we purchased from a tiny book shop that was hidden away in the corner of a coffee shop. The patterns are entirely handcrafted and many hours went into recreating them into seamless, usable pieces. The result: 12 unique patterns (inverted options also included) that are super easy to use and edit.

Inside you’ll find 24 ‘Seamless Sections’ – These are high-resolution sections of the patterns that you can copy and paste over and over again to create a pattern of any size. Also, you will find 24 Pre-made A4 sheets (Transparent – Super easy to change colors!) – perfect for a quick and easy application.

Last but not least; A Gift from The Creator’s Dad:

“My Dad has been an artist for most of his life; drawing and painting flowers, birds, landscapes and everything in between. However, being a family man, it has always remained a hobby. Recently we have been changing that! Here’s a bonus gift from him.”

The gift includes 12 beautifully crafted botanical sketches that have been edited with entirely transparent backgrounds, meaning that you can drag and drop these delicate drawings directly onto your digital canvas. While this might be a bonus, we haven’t shied away from quality. These illustrations average a whopping 10,000px on the longest side, at 300ppi!

And there you have it, a complete and timeless collection of vintage design goodies itching to be dragged, dropped, cropped and colored.

Introducing The All-New Hamilton Font Family

Add an extra layer of 19th-century style to your design work with the new Hamilton Font family. Within this family you will find; A beautifully handcrafted script font loaded with a decorative set of stylistic alternatives and perfect imperfections, a vintage map inspired serif that looks great both on its own and when paired with its cursive partner, a set of detailed ink splats (available as a font and as vectors) to add even more creativity when using any of the Hamilton fonts, and last but not least a flourish font (also available as vectors) to help bring your work to life!

Each and every element of this family was entirely crafted by hand, scanned, and converted for digital use with minimal digital touch-ups to be as authentic as possible!

Language Support: Afrikaans, Basque, Breton, Catalan, Danish, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, Gaelic, German, Icelandic, Indonesian, Irish, Italian, Norwegian, Portuguese, Saami, Spanish, Swahili, Swedish.

FREE BONUS: Full pack catalog and quick tutorial guide

This pack includes a full pack catalog to navigate the files quickly and easily, as well as a quick tutorial guide, walking you through useful design tips and ideas for how to use your new vintage goodies. You’ll learn how to:

  • Create and customise a seamless vintage pattern
  • Add colour to your vintage illustrations
  • Incorporate the transparent textures into text
  • Texturise your photos giving an authentic vintage look

Software compatibility: The vectors require Adobe Illustrator CS and newer for full editing capabilities. However, .EPS files will work with a variety of programs such as Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator, Sketch, InkScape, Affinity, Corel Draw, etc. This pack also includes a complete range of .PNG files which will work with most graphic software. Whatever software you’re using, this pack should offer full compatibility.
