Free Clip Art 
6th-Sep-2009 11:46 am
Hello all,

Just a quick question.

Does anyone have any idea where I can access free clipart? I do not want to make items with clipart on, sell them and discover they have some copyright on them. I am looking for copyright-free clipart.

I have looked online but I cannot make head nor tail of the copyright issues and Google tends to throw up all sorts of links.

Any ideas would be very much appreciated.

Check the front of the book to be sure, but I'm pretty sure buying the (rather affordable) clip art books with CDs from Dover gives you the right to use them. They have some decent stuff.

Yes, Dover allows free use, even for things that will be sold. If you go to their website, you can sign up for a weekly newsletter that leads you to an area with some free samples (different every week). You never know what it will have, but I've gotten some really good stuff. They'll probably start bringing out the Halloween stuff in a week or two.

Seconded - their free samples rock.

Be cautious, though - Dover does reserve all rights to some of their publishings, so make sure it's part of their royalty-free library.

Thanks! I'm painting a t-shirt with some crow silhouettes, this is exactly what I was looking for!
