Perpetual Licensing

The World’s Largest Collection of Licensable Vintage Artwork

Artworks from the Pierce Archive are available for licensing through our partner agency, Perpetual Licensing.


A license agreement with the Pierce Archive grants its partners access to all 100,000+ images maintained in the collection. Unlike other art collections that require individual payments and guarantees for each artwork licensed, the Pierce Archive allows licensees use of the entire collection.  Art from the Archive has been successfully licensed across a number of consumer products, including: apparel, home décor, stationery, food & beverages and more.


To make finding the right artwork easier for licensed partners, we’ve categorized the art into 850+ themes, such as automobiles, magic, flowers, women’s rights, outdoors, etc.  In addition, licensees can also search the database by keyword or enlist the Pierce Archive team to assist in finding specific artworks for a product or project.


Generally, there are no territory restrictions as to where images can be used or where licensed products can be sold. Except for images with registered trademarks, all copyrights have already been cleared. The Pierce Archive scans artwork at a minimum of 300DPI, with no image is smaller than 8”x10”.
