Free Vintage Santa Clip Art

These vintage Santas look range from a little serious and even worried to as jolly as we’ve come top expect Santa to be. Because the origin of these images span decades, you can see how Santa’s image has evolved over the years. In case you’re interested to read more about how Santa has changed, see Wikipedia’s Santa Claus in Northern American Culture.

Mid-twentieth-century Santa clip art is consistently cheerful. In fact, those images of Santa — which are from the 1940’s through the 1960’s — are downright silly. See our collection of mid-century vintage Santas.

There’s also plenty more vintage clip art for Christmas in our Free Clip Art Sourcebook. So many people have been kind enough to leave comments that the Sourcebook has helped them to be creative without having to spend any money. That really makes me happy. As someone who used to have limited money to spend myself, it gives me joy to know that I’m helping those with limited personal finances, as so many crafters and artists are. Maybe someday we’ll return to the days of artistic patronage like they had in centuries past that recognized that artists make great contributions to society and should be supported and honored. Until then I’ll do my part and provide free clip art!
