A number of years ago I purchased some scroll type vector art from a website specializing in selling individual pieces. I checked the merchant Vector Art and they don't have what I'm looking for. Can anyone direct me to other sites?

Thanks... Marty

Happy Signing...... Marty

Google images has many that you can buy individually - and many that Dave Smith developed also...

Mike Jackson and David Butler both have available CD's but not individual pieces of clip art for sale, as far as I know.

I have been buying vectors from Dollar Photo Club since it launched in February. It seems to be geared toward low volume purchasers of of art and photos.

Ron Percell at letterheadsignsupply.com carries my Palm's Trilogy. These are "hand vectorized" straight from the 1800's Palm Brothers catalog, which provided screenprinted gold water decals to bank safe companies, sewing machine companies, etc. Hand vectorized means they were created, line by line, using Illustrator, not ran through a sloppy instant vector program. Most of the images took from 4 to 12 hours to create. Many are very ornate, as you would expect from artwork from that period. Ron has some jpeg images on his site. The 3 CD set is also available for purchase individually.

Ron also carries David Butler's very fine clip art. David is one of the most talented fellows in the biz, and it shows in all of his clip art!

I'm fairly sure that Mike Jackson only sells his clip art through his own site. I don't recall the site url, but I'm sure he would show up towards the top of a Google search.

A lot depends on how you need to use the art. Mike's is probably the most useful for sandblasted signs, as it has more bulk and better for cutting sandblast mask. As I pointed out, the Palm's art is very ornate, and probably more suited to printing, as much of it would be a pain to weed in vinyl.

I own both Mike and David's clip art, and guarantee that both are top notch all the way. But, of course, I'd prefer you buy mine. [Wink]

None of us offer individual pieces, so far as I'm aware.

"4 to 12 hours to create"
Is that all? I have a sample of those scrolls; the work is as close to perfection as man has ever come. I've done a bit of vectorizing myself; for me, each curve can take some re-adjusting, and then there's making it flow into the next curve. Very nice work.
