Fun & Amazing Vintage Print Ads Roundup for Inspiration

Wetern Electric: Western Electric was ahead of their times. Amazing how technology is moving so fast. This ad below is from 1969 (I think), but a prototype was tested in 1956.

Ad 1955 General Telephone System: Tradition of Service



1955 Ad Realist Camera. Stereo Realist. Cool. It says you can take 3D snapshots with this 2 eyed camera!


source – buy print ad

1968 Ad Polaroid instant land camera. The 60 second excitement. I can’t imagine what would happen if today’s digital cameras made you wait 60 seconds before seeing the image. That would cause a lot of excitement.


source-buy print

Ohio Art – Might Tiny Product Packaging: Hey this kind of reminds me of the Sony mini discs? What ever happened to those?

Some Volkswagen Ads:







Have no fear…Even Wilt can fit in the latest VW!.  See a VW ad from our times:

and if you want to buy the car you can buy it here, y’never know.

Camel Cigarettes: Its interesting how cigarette companies specifically chose doctors to promote the product.  It would seem that health was a concern for smokers – even back then – and therefore probably ads  like this would reassure the people it’s not so bad and reduce health concerns.


Phillip Morris SuperLights (SpaceStation) – the space age




Zippo – Just For Mom Source – That’s funny.

CocaCola “coke” Hospitality: Couches used to be pretty small back then – that can’t be a 3 seater. It’s actually nice how in such a casual atmosphere people used to dress so fancy. At least that what it seems like based on this image.



Pepsi Cola – Gives More Bounce for the Ounce: I think the logo on the bottle cap looks pretty good. BTW check out below the way Pepsi branding has evolved over time, it’s pretty interesting.





LifeSavers Sweet Talk:



1954 LifeSavers Cool and Refreshing:


Source and or BUY IT

1963 Kelloggs: Big Bowl of Corn Flakes



1959 Alpha-Bits Cereal: New oat cereal with energy from A to Z



1957 Post Grape Nuts: that’s pretty slim



Jello flavors: I can not imagine eating olives with Jello, but I do love olives and I have never tried it, so who knows.



A selected few from the JELLO SERIES: It’s awesome how illustration used to be so prominent in print ads of the 50’s . It’s refreshing to see such nice illustrations while being influenced by todays computer age. Today, hand illustrations are used much less than they could be, I think, when an illustration is done well, it  could really spice up a project.

Jello Kangaroo:


Jello Leopard:


Jello Elephant:


Jello Polar Bear:


Jellow Series: see here and buy the prints too

The telephone system we are using today still uses the legacy Tip and Ring -48 Volts line which is susceptible to noise.`;’

These vintage print ads look so amazing! What I like most is the kid who grab his big teddy. I wonder if there’s a big teddy bear like this one available in any store!

Love the collection. Thanks

I needed to draft you the very small word just to thank you so much as before on the precious pointers you’ve documented in this case. It is particularly generous of you to supply without restraint exactly what a lot of people would have made available as an e-book to help with making some bucks on their own, and in particular given that you might well have tried it in case you considered necessary. The creative ideas also worked to be the easy way to comprehend someone else have the identical fervor like mine to find out significantly more when it comes to this matter. I’m certain there are lots of more fun opportunities in the future for people who see your blog.

It’s truly a nice and helpful piece of information. I’m satisfied that you shared this helpful info with us. Please keep us informed like this. Thanks for sharing.
