50 Vintage Freebie Finds

Hello!

You all know, I’m a sucker for freebies. Add “vintage” to the mix and well, I’m totally geeked out.  I hope you enjoy these vintage finds – not only fonts, but also badges, frames, PSD retro layer styles and icons!

As always, please pay attention to the license on each freebie!

Vintage Stamp Effect Photoshop Action

Vintage Stamp Effect Photoshop Action

Works great on any single color logo, emblem, mark, seal, crest. Because of the great response to Jeff Finley’s Aged Type action, he took it a bit further and made a similar effect that could be applied not just to text, but to your logo to give it an authentic stamp or print effect.
