20 Websites For Downloading Free Vector Images

Free Vector Resources

Vector images are great for designers, mostly due to their extreme flexibility. With no fixed resolution, they scale up and down in size with no loss of image quality and work well in print, flash, backgrounds and more.

There are hundreds of sites that offer free vectors. Some are completely devoted to vectors and vectors only, while a few have them tucked into a freebies category. The point is, there are plenty of free vectors out there if you know where to find them.

  1. Thanks for this collection Shawn. I actually find myself visiting Vecteezy and their family of sites quite often.

    One thing that I really like on the list is VectorArt.org

    I ran across that site before, but completely forgot about it, and because of this post, I remembered it. Thanks mate!

  2. In general I find you get what you pay for with free graphics services… first thing you have to check the license of each graphic you download because they could all be different.
    Most require attribution (which is OK but I don’t like it) and some are non-commercial only. Also some images may allow for web use but might not allow for use in print (brochures, business cards, even t-shirts).
    In general I like to buy my vector art from two sites; iStockPhoto, and Fotolia. You get what you pay for there too – more flexible usage rights.

    • Dave – I agree, it is important to note where these graphics are allowed as far as licensing goes. This is something that is much more flexible on a paid site, as you mentioned.

      Here at Bluefaqs, I try and focus more attention to the massive amount of free icons, tutorials, source files etc. that could possibly help someone out in a project. It’s natural for more people to seek out freebies first before dishing out any cash, so focusing in that department allows me to reach a broader audience.

      You bring up a great point though, and because of that I think it would be smart for me to start listing some of the awesome paid items that are available. They are almost always of much higher quality and the pricing is generally quite fair.

    I got what you intend, saved to fav, very nice internet site .

  6. Thats really good list. But i guess its time to update your list as now there are lots of great and freebie sites out there.

  7. Great List!

    if you ever update your list, please consider another site for free vector graphics:

    http://www.vectorpile.com

    It’s not as big as the others yet, but is growing quickly, and most importantly has only high quality content license under Creative Commons.

    Thanks!
