Plan 59

I found this website when searching for clip art for a project I was working on. They have a lot of really awesome prints. On their “about” section it reads:
PLAN59.com is a family-friendly Web site dedicated to the commercial art of mid-century America. Here at the nostalgia factory in Fairfax, Virginia, the assembly lines clank nonstop and the smokestacks belch 24/7 to deliver a high-quality assortment of jpegs, gifs, tiffs and the occasional vector graphic. In 2005 we started offering large-format prints of selected images on the site; in addition to delicious eye candy we also provide illustrations to corporate as well as nonprofit clients for print, promotional, educational and Web use. Satisfied customers include General Motors (Saab magazine, Cadillac), Noble Advertising, the Dana Corporation, Kiplinger’s Personal Finance, the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library, the Wall Street Journal and PQ Publishers (dozens of images for the book and DVD  Rose Colored, published under the Barnes & Noble imprint). E-mail us with your queries. The boss, David Hall, has been in the publishing business for 20 years.

BACKSTORY: We started out in 1999 as EphemeraNow. (Pronounced “Ephema . . . wha?”) After a few years our business manager, who’s sharp as a tack, thought it might be good to have a name that the average person could say and spell (not to mention understand), so we became Plan59 in January 2006. The rest is history.
Here are a few of their amazing prints they have for sale:

ACHOO !

Retro Decor

There is so much more on their website. You can purchase prints via their Prints section of their website. You will spend hours browsing all of the old ads. They have the hugest collection I have ever seen. If you want some interesting art to display on your wall at the office, home, or garage, be sure to stop by www.plan59.com

Thanks for reading,

Skrach
