Free Resources

Finding free shit isn't easy, especially if you want to use it for commercial purposes. People who do all this artsy stuff online think "commercial purposes" would entail a huge corporation with a huge spending budget, but most people looking for shit like that are a small, home-owned business, where the budget they have for their business is what also covers formula and diapers, and nine times out of nine, they probably won't make a whole lot of money with that art in particular. Corporations generally hire teams of salaried artists or contract ad agencies who have salaried artists.

This list got incredibly long, so I made some category images for your ease of use and viewing pleasure.






Some Quick Info on Licensing and Copyright Use

Keep an eye on licensing and use. Many things are free for personal use, but not commercial use. For example, free for personal use means a teacher looking for a graphic for her math worksheet she made, which would most likely fall under fair use anyway. Some things have a commercial use but with limitations that it cannot be used for printing services like t-shirts or greeting cards. Some things want attribution, which is hard to do in print.

Fonts used as a typeface has no copyright. If you write a book, you can use any font you want without infringing upon someone's intellectual property. But fonts used in design, like a Facebook meme or t-shirt, those have some copyright to them, especially the computer code. It was said a loophole around it is to print up the font, scan it in, and make your own from that (to circumvent using someone else's computer code of anchor points and what not), but if you want to be safe, in your designs, use fonts you know you are allowed to use. Some of the ones in the program's package, like Photoshop or MS Word, are only free to use for personal use and not commercial use. The best thing to do is google the name of the font, and make a judgment call based on that.

Public Domain means you can use it for any reason. While each country has their own copyright laws, in the US, anything from before 1923 is GENERALLY considered public domain, but that doesn't mean it's true. It's just close enough for most people to attempt. Anything made by the government is considered public domain, for most situations, but again, some exceptions to the rule exists (for instance, the government trademarks certain things like the Air Force Logo). In addition, any advertisements that does not have a copyright on the ad itself (the c with a circle around it) or a trademark logo on the ad itself is considered public domain if before the date 1977.
