My Retro Vibe!

I am finding these patterns perfect for my 60s and 70s retro store digital designs. They really give that 50s, 60s and 70s aesthetic, especially a comic book or catalog style, which is right up my street. However, there are so many swatch patterns to use and their inherent versatility means the could be used in a plethora of design projects, whatever your desired era. It goes without saying for a True Grit product but the customer support and help files/tutorials are top notch; I have had no problems jumping straight into using them from the get-go.
