by WriterArtist

Vintage inspired posters for Halloween are capable of taking you back in the 1980s era.Even with the black and white themes these pictures are capable of striking terror and mayhem

I have always loved vintage style decor. Here is my secret – I tend to find some unique item most of the time which for me is a treasure. Of course; it need not be expensive. I get a great deal of pleasure in finding rare items. If you are fond of collecting collectibles, you will definitely understand why people who love vintage hunt for antiques.

If you are an ardent collector, perhaps you already have a grand assortment of vintage and antique stuff; however not appropriate for Halloween if it is not scary enough. This is the time to get into Halloween mood and get something which is on the spookier side.

There is a great probability of finding something spooky in the vintage antiques and artifacts, old, vintage posters for Halloween are one such item. Vintage paintings of witch with cauldron are the oldest and will never go out of print.

So will be the witch who is flying on the magic broom with a moon silhouetted in the background. Pumpkins and Jack’o lanterns look awesome in posters, the reddish orange shade of the pumpkins are synonymous to the bright and gory red of blood-tainted Halloween.

Vibrant colors with cool, spooky themes can have dramatic effect especially when they are hung on the right place on walls. Vampires, Dracula and monsters, anything that reminds the darkness of the festival can get in. Witches and pumpkins, zombies and goblins; they all look great on life size posters. Dark nights and diffused light can enhance the eerie sceneries. Gloomy and dark shadows on hazy walls can look terrific. Blurred light can make the monsters look real.

WriterArtist, Thank you for product lines, pretty pictures and practical information.

In particular, I appreciate the non-scary note cards and t-shirts. The crow and skull horror canvas print doesn't seem that scary because it makes me think of Edgar Allen Poe's raven.

The Happy Thanksgiving card includes a carved pumpkin. Is it intended to be scary? Fortunately, it looks benign, not at all resentful of family and friends getting together to give thanks.

Old, traditional, vintage artistry regarding All Hallows Eve seems far less scary than nowadays.

I noticed Halloween trends are turning from showy to more traditional and from bought to self made... I like vintage stuff, although most of it is digital. There is a lot of great vintage graphics on the web, if you spend some time on research. Halloween is not only about fun, it is also about tradition, so traditional style postcards and posters certainly help to make the right feeling.
