Following on the popularity of their 'Saturday Morning in the 80s' laser cut-outs, London-based Etsy seller CutOutPaper has released another version of retro paper cut-outs.

Laser cut from high quality tangerine paper, CutOutPaper's retro paper cut-outs are bound to bring back fond memories of the gadgets and gizmos you owned as a child. Each element is hand drawn, digitized, and then laser cut to an incredible level of detail.

Implications - Products that feature a classic aesthetic are appealing to customers who wish to revert back to simpler times. Items containing an older element are subtly appealing to those shoppers who don't want over exaggerated designs. In order to attract more consumers, a company could hone in on this desire for more simplicity.
