Valentine’s Day is a divisive holiday, but whether you’re for or against a holiday of hearts and love, I think we can all agree that these cheesy vintage Valentines are “out of this world.” Featuring retro robots, vintage astronauts, and cheesy messages, these images are a nostalgic reminder of exchanging Valentines in elementary school. In addition to a nice trip down memory lane, many of these Valentines are perfect to print out and give to your beloved for a day of retro love.
This lady astronaut proclaims “You are out of this world!” (At least she’s dressed practically for space travel!)
These robot lovers say “You put my control panel out of order.”
Testing, testing, this retro astronaut says, “I’ll be your Valentine, just give me the signal!”
This little robot engineer says “May sound screwy, but I’m in love with you-y!”
This little astronaut says “You’ve got me flyin’ high Valentine.”
Aliens fall in love two. These far out spacemen say “I’ll tell the world we’re going to PLANET so we can be Valentines.’
“My love is far out!” This Valentine helpfully reminds us of the date of Valentine’s day with its retro-robot. Available on Etsy.
