A New CartoonStock

Welcome to our shiny, brand new site!

Search ID: atan1738

We've been working hard behind the scenes and have made plenty of changes to CartoonStock. Here's a quick summary of the new features we've added to CartoonStock:

CartoonStock Credits

CartoonStock Credits introduce a whole new way of buying cartoons on CartoonStock. We sell different sized credit bundles, and the idea is simple: the bigger the bundle, the more you save. Find out more on credits and credit prices for licenses on our pricing page.

Instant Downloads

But don't despair if you prefer to deal with us the old fashioned way, we still offer instant downloads for those of you who won't be using our credits system. You can instantly download our cartoons by making instant payments for cartoons through PayPal.

You won't need a PayPal account to purchase the cartoon this way, just a working credit or debit card, and we'll take your payment as normal without you having to sign up for a PayPal account. Visit our pricing page for more information.

Streamlined Licenses

Another thing we've worked on behind the scenes is increasing the user friendliness of our site. We've done this by reducing our old license range, but adding functionality to our new license range. Take a look at our pricing and license agreement pages to find out more!


The way you search CartoonStock has changed. Now we've added in the option for you to search by black and white/color cartoons, as well as searching by horizontal/vertical cartoons.

On top of this, you'll now be able to search through our Main Archive, NewsCartoons and VintageCartoons at the same time or individually! Visit our searching tips page or advanced search page for a taste!


Lightboxes on CartoonStock allow you to explore our huge cartoon/illustration collection, and bookmark any images you might want to compare or download later. You can now create your own cartoon collection(s), and uniquely name your Lightbox(es) anything you’d like!

Here's how to get started:

  1. Log in/Create an Account: Click on the "Log in or Sign Up" Link on the top right of the page.
  2. Search for cartoons: Type in the search terms that describe the type of cartoon you're looking for.
  3. Click on the cartoon: If you find a cartoon you'd like to add to a Lightbox, click on the cartoon thumbnail.
  4. Select "Add To Lightbox": Click the link found to the right of the cartoon, above the "Buy From" options.
  5. Either "Add to Existing Lightbox" or "Add to New Lightbox": Enter a name for the new Lightbox describing the cartoons you're saving.
  6. Keep searching! Search our huge database of Cartoons, and add more to the Lightbox you've created.
  7. Access your Lightbox(es) by clicking the "Lightboxes" link: Found at the top right of the page, next to the "My Account" link.

We hope you enjoy visiting the new CartoonStock, but if you have an issues on the site please don't hesitate to contact us.
