Flowers and smiley faces were HUGE, ditto anything "organic". Anything referring to peace - peace signs, the word "peace", "Make love, not war", the hand sign for peace - ANYTHING is good (the Viet Nam war was a big deal for us - still kind of is). If you need some visual cues, the Austin Powers movies (while over the top) kind of nailed it.

I did a search for '70s artwork and this came up: Image Search Results for 70's artwork has a few good fonts that you could use to print your own sentiments.

I like Keep on Truckin' FW Font |

and Bell Bottom Laser Font |

and LMS Hippy Chick Font |

A lot of people were experimenting with pot and LSD, so psychedelic images were huge, neon colors made their debut, etc. Tie dye was big, mushrooms were everywhere.

Inkadinkado has a set of peace signs: Peace Signs - Inkadinkado

I have the CTMH Groovy stamp set, but also found one on ebay:

Hopefully some of this overly-long answer will be helpful...

Your assessment of the 70's is priceless! I also qualify as being from that era. Peace marches, Bob Dylan, etc. I still have my Mr. Natural Keep on Truckin poster! It's fun thinking back on those days. Thanks for posting.
