How are people finding old vintage poster artwork that's good enough to print?

I'm looking for some help in finding old vintage poster artwork which is good enough to print.

We find high definition JPEGS online but then when we turn it into a pdf & print it it is coming out slightly pixellated on a xerox 550.

We've tried vectorizing the artwork online & also editing in photoshop but can't seem to get "sellable" quality.

The vintage posters seem very popular online so thinking we could try this & actually get some use out of our printer.

Thanks for any help.

Wow thanks Gordo, that's exactly the kind of thing i'm looking for. I'd never be able to find the right words to stumble across that in google.
