Does anyone know what these types of pictures are called? Also, does anyone know where you can get vector images of them? They're not copyrighted are they?

Thanks!

As a whole they are called international symbols. There are quite a few fonts out there made up of them. It may take some hunting to find exact matches though.

Cheers,

Pictograms, is the term we use....
Pictos, for short.

Thank you everyone! I KNEW there was a name for these things.....it's kinda tough to search Google for them when you don't know what they're called!!!

I searched all of the recommendations and found the basics......but does anyone have a source for the humorous kind (like gas and marriage)?

They are pictograms - as for humour gas and marriage, look up roses with holes burned in them. :D

Steve I have had a look at some of the pictograms on my computer. They all appear to be serious signs, well none of them made me laugh. I think you would be better just doing a general search for 'funny pictograms' on google to get a result.

Some of these (or similar ones) are on the Corel Draw fonts CD.
In X3 check CD3\symbols\ttf\signs.ttf for starters.
