Clip art, as its name suggests, is a form of graphic art that makes use of pre-existing images. These drawings / images are either copied or physically cut from existing works in the printed format on a particular topic. The sources of these pictures are either books that have entered the public domain or books specifically published for such use. Logos, mascots, identity and business cards, invitations, letterheads, etc., can be made by cutting or copying the images. Clip art facilitates the availability of a pool of generic art that can be used and reused by non-artists. There are so many ways to use it... print on a brown paper and you can wrap coffee cups, print on regular or colored paper and then use scrapbooking die cuts to fancy up the edges for a doily effect, or, resize the clipart to small, convert it to a gray and print a repeating pattern on the paper which can even be used to wrap small presents, or as placemats, even origami!

Yes, many think that branding is only important in fast food and retail operations, but it's extremely important to colleges that have to compete for student tuitions; and it's even gaining importance among high schools, and their surrounding communities, that are vying for prestige to boost neighborhood reputations/value. More successful high schools are now recruiting star athletes and students with high academic achievements, and the school's reputation can either help or hurt those efforts. The best option is to search for sites that provide the original vector image, or a high resolution bitmap, and then use software like Photoshop or Adobe Illustrator to resize or manipulate the image into your digital scrapbook, or before you print it. If you are on a budget, you can also use free image editors such as Inkscape or the Gimp, although there is also a lot of mid priced software available as shareware.
While surfing thousands of images you will come across many common things as time changes but people and culture do not change.

Even for an ordinary person, these sites can offer a nice experience and they can share this content with people from their social circle or send them as electronic greeting cards. Practically, there are many ways to utilize such bygone era images. Whatever baby clip art you decide to use, be sure to keep a common theme throughout all of your projects. For instance, having matching thank you notes is a nice compliment to your invitations. Also, having personalized stationery for the mother to write her own personal thank you notes would be a wonderful idea. Cut green and red construction paper into thin strips.
