10 Free for Commercial Use Vector Graphic Galleries for Designers

Looking for a good source of free vector illustrations to throw into your designs can be frustrating sometimes. You find something you like or that has an object in it which you could use only to find out that you cannot use it in a commercial project. Well, I’ve done my share of digging through hundreds of search engine results and decided to put them in one place where I can share these favorites.

I chose these sites because I found that many – if not most – of the vector objects are available free for commercial use. It’s important for designers to respect the copyrights of the original authors. Many of these guys and gals make a living from producing quality graphics and illustrations.

Before proceeding, here is a little more information about the Creative Commons Licenses and how they work:

Creative Commons License LogoThe Creative Commons copyright licenses and tools forge a balance inside the traditional “all rights reserved” setting that copyright law creates. Our tools give everyone from individual creators to large companies and institutions a simple, standardized way to grant copyright permissions to their creative work. The combination of our tools and our users is a vast and growing digital commons, a pool of content that can be copied, distributed, edited, remixed, and built upon, all within the boundaries of copyright law.

These free downloads can be fully modified to conform with your project and can also serve as inspiration. Many of the sites have a link back to the original author so that you can explore more of their work. Some of the authors offer tutorials on how they designed the vectors on their own sites or blogs. It’s worth a look.

Here we go:

    I was searching for car stickers and found that some designs are so popular that most of online shops sell them. My question is from where they find the vector image of such decals. For example ” monster peeking car sticker”.
    And how can I know whether they are copyrighted or not.

      Hi, Some artists will not design their artwork as vector, or will not make their stickers available as a vector file. Your best bet would be finding the artist who designed it and contacting them directly for the vector file. A good way to tell if it is copyrighted is to check to see if the image is “labeled for reuse”. I would still check with the designer to make sure it is okay to use though.

    I am creating some backgrounds for an app, a game and i am using elements from here and there, will i have any problem?
    i’m not using the whole image, for example i use, a palm, then a sky then some grass…. in order to create something different, is it ok? do i have to attribute the name of the website?

    Can anyone tell me how I can determine the license on already downloaded graphics? I occasionally get free deals through my inbox–many just sample sizes of a larger bundle–but I don’t store them separately. How do you keep track of your graphics with so many different licenses? Especially fonts? Is it even worth having personal-use-only fonts and graphics on your computer?

    I’ve always made my own invitations but have never sold them. I am looking into selling them on etsy. I want to be 100% sure that I am not breaking any copyright laws. So if I used some of these images found on these websites to create an invitation, I could sell it on etsy, right?

      Kila, thank you for your comment.

      Yes, you can. Commercial Use means that you can use it commercially as in using the graphics in your commercial products to make a profit without having to owe anyone a piece of the action.

      This post was created some time ago so just make sure that the commercial use license is still available. Most of these websites make it easy to find the license or you can always contact the webmaster to make sure.

      Good luck on your venture! And once you get going, don’t forget to create something original too! Feel free to contact us when you start selling…we can print the invitations for you professionally.

        Some of these websites have commercial licences that say you cannot use them for profit items, or you cannot use them where the graphic is the main design… I’m trying to find a vector so I can make little pendants to sell for a charity project but most of these websites have these weird stipulations and i’m afraid to use them for re-sale… How can I avoid any issues?

          Hey Tanya,
          That is a great question. Usually, you can find any licensing information in the about us section of the website. Some websites have vectors that you can and cannot use. It’s really important just to do your due diligence as far as the websites guidelines, and then make sure you are downloading a vector that is ok to use for your purposes. If you click on some of them, they will have a non sharing agreement, or it won’t say anything. If that website clearly states that they have vectors for any use, then just check you are downloading a vector that has no stipulations.
