So What Is Clip Art anyways?
Clip art is sometimes referred to as “clipart” or “clip-art”.
No matter which way you write it, the term clip art refers to images that are hand-drawn or created digitally. Clip art is an illustration, not a stock photo.
You use clip art because, according to Shutterstock, “Sometimes, stock photography isn’t the right choice for the job. Clip art usually offers a more cartoon-like (and therefore, more universal) approach to a subject, whether it’s a policeman blowing a whistle, or a colorful arrow pointing towards future growth.”
Another benefit of choosing clip art over stock photography is that you can place the image in the middle of the text and the text will wrap around the image.
What Do You Use Clip Art For?
Clip art has a variety of purposes and uses. You can use it for websites, posters, calendars, basically anything you want to create.
Is Clip Art Free?
Like stock photos, some clip art is free and some you have to pay for. Many websites will charge you a one-time fee for permission to use the clip art forever. Other websites will allow you to purchase a package with a monthly or annual fee. That package will allow you to use all of the clip art on the website.
As you’re searching for clip art, you also want to figure out if the clip art you’re using is “royalty-free”. Royalty-free means that you can use the image for promotional material, websites, etc. without paying a fee every time you use it.
There are two types of royalty-free clip art. The first can be used freely on anything, even items that you create for sale.
The second can only be used if the project you’re creating is not for resale. You must know what royalty restrictions are on each piece of clip art that you use. If you use an image that’s not royalty free or one that’s not for use in publication, you could run the risk of copyright infringement.
Where can I find Christmas Clipart for Commercial Use?
We recommend Freepik and Canva.
Always be sure to read the terms and conditions of the clip-art you are purchasing to make sure you can use it for your purposes.
Maybe places require that you layer clipart before creating an item for resale.
Other places ban it all together.
You’ll be sure to find something you love in these places.
