Vectors are one of the go-to image files for designers especially if they’re working on a logo, illustration or print layout. After all, they’re mostly ready-made unlike if you’ll begin with an unedited image (or scratch altogether!)
But, as with any image, vectors can sometimes be hard to find. And even if you found one, you probably either stumble on a paid version or free but with very limited license.
So, to spare you from the headache, we compile to you the 10 best FREE vector websites around (some of them, free for COMMERCIAL use!)
Let’s begin checking them!
10 Best FREE Vector Websites You Can Use
One of the most famous sources of free images floating on the Internet is Pixabay, and there’s a good reason for that.
Pixabay offers a wide variety of images for FREE. Not only that, most of their free images come with a “Commercial Use” license – which also comes for free. In other words, you can use Pixabay’s images free for both personal and commercial use.
And yes, Pixabay offers a wide variety of vectors! Just click “Images” on the right side of its search bar. It will drop down a list of other options. Just click “Vector Graphics” and you’re ready to go!
Pixabay also doesn’t even require attribution most of the tie (though they will verily appreciate if you give them, and why not?) If you found an image to be very helpful to you, you can opt to donate the author or creator a few dollars for his coffee.
Don’t miss it. Check out Pixabay!
