Free Vintage Christmas Clip Art Images

free vintage Christmas clip art -- little Victorian boy with presents I love vintage Christmas clip art, and from my experience so do a lot of other people. These nine free vintage clip art images are particularly nice, in my opinion. Not only are they fine examples of authentic vintage Christmas art but they’re also large-sized, which means you can use them to make holiday greeting cards, scrapbooks or other print projects.

People who prefer a more religious or spiritual slant to their Christmas images should appreciate these, as their are several that depict the baby Jesus in the manger with angels. There are also angels by themselves; two of them even look like they’re delivering a Christmas tree. Speaking of Christmas trees, there is also an image of Victorian children playing with their toys beneath one and a woman carrying one in miniature. Together these form a nice collection that I’m sure you’ll find useful for Web sites, blogs, scrapbooking, crafts and handmade Christmas cards.

As I look at these illustrations, I have to wonder how many different artists are represented. If you look closely, the style of each image is a little different. When you think about how many vintage images are on this site or out on the Internet, they must represent a huge number of talented people. Unfortunately, these people go mostly unnoticed.

The same could probably be said for modern greeting card and clip art artists. They do what they do for pay, because the electric bill needs to be paid — no matter how talented they are. Some of today’s artists might even have huge portfolios of outstanding images, yet you’ll never know their names. So here’s to the unsung artists who enrich our lives silently every day. With any luck they enjoy their work and so will continue to give us images that will become the next millennium’s vintage art. And if you know artists who toil in obscurity, be sure to give them liberal praise. You just might be encouraging tomorrow’s masterpieces.

  6. i want to use these clips as part of my pictures for our christmas party souvenir but the images are too small..How can I download its larger version? Thanks

  7. Hi, Lynell. If you follow the instructions right above the images, you’ll have access to the largest sizes available. Since those are pretty large, I’m guessing you didn’t see the instructions. Here they are: Just click on the image you want and you’ll see a larger version. You can then download by right-clicking (PC) or control-clicking (Mac).

  8. Hi,
    I found your Fab site via a link on someone’s blog. I read your TOU and have used a few of your Beautiful Valentines designs – making alterations as specified to create embellishments etc for a free digikit I made to share with fellow crafters who use craft artist.
    I have put a link to your site on my blog.
    Really interested in the Vintagerio membership and will be joining this, can these images also be used?
    Any advice would be appreciated as I am just starting out and on a learning curve.
    Thank you

  9. Hi, Algera. Your kit is beautiful! I just sent you an e-mail about your question. Please let me know if you don’t get it.

  10. Hello
    I have come across your site whilst searching for Vintage Christmas art – it’s all just so beautiful! From your TOU I would be permitted to use your Vintage art in printed cards and bookmarks I wish to make and sell. Would I also be required to purchase your Vintagerio Subscription and in doing this, would this allow me to view more of your Vintage art to use? I’m new to this and would appreciate any information you can give me.
    Thanks so much for your help.

  11. Sorry for the tardy response, Jenny. It was a busy weekend. 🙂

    If you plan to sell more than 49 items, you will need to purchase the Vintagerio subscription. That will entitle you to use the images in my network on up to 999 products. In other words, you could use one image on 999 products, three images on 333 products, or any variation thereof. But buying the Vintagerio subscription will also allow you to use images too.
