    Bee line seems to be a favourite of some of the regulars on the boards Neil, I cant vouch for it myself as we dont have it but a lot of folk have said how good it is. We use masterclips and art explosion and if we cant find what we are looking for Jon will quite often draw something, handy having someone who can draw working with you. this way the customer also knows what he is getting is unique and if another sign company is going to copy it you know it wont be that easy for them.
    Check out some of the older posts as I am sure this has been covered before, try a search for clipart and see what comes up.

    I can recommend Art Explosion. It’s American, but you will almost always find something relevant. There are thousands of images, I think it’s up to 750,000 now. It’s also pretty cheap.

    Have you tried the BeeLine clipart? Pretty generic stuff.

    Beeline has been the stapler diet for a number of years – very very good if a little cartoony in places.

    Art Explosions OK for a starter, but you’ll find millions of extra stray points on the vectors – I’ve found that you really need to do a little work on almost any file you want to produce more than 2″ high!
