Finds of the Week - Free Clip Art Edition

toggle-button

Finds of the Week are usually interesting things I've stumbled across recently.
This week I was thinking of cards (all sorts of holidays are right around the corner) and clip art, so I rummaged through my bookmarks to come up with a small list of carefully chosen sites I've collected over time.
I've added licensing and/or terms of use for each site. Anything in quotes is copied directly from the site.

WP Clipart
"WPClipart is an ever-growing collection of artwork for schoolkids and others that is free of copyright concerns as well as safe from inappropriate images. Use in school research and reports is my main focus when creating, or finding and editing -- but there are photos and clips here that work great for commercial uses, book illustrations, office presentations, and some just for fun..."
All the images here are Public Domain.
There are 35,516 (and growing) unique images, most in multiple formats.

Artvex
Over 10,000 original free clipart images - I like the icon section in particular.
"Terms of Use: Permission is granted for limited non-profit personal use of up to fifteen (15) images from all categories.
Moreover, credit is due on all published works.
All commercial or institutional use requires licensing.
Redistribution of any image found at this web site (artvex.com) in any format is strictly prohibited."

Clip Art Pal
This site doesn't have the huge amount of clip art that some other sites do, but the clip art here is well done. Don't be fooled by the handful of categories, there are sub-categories that have a goodly amount of images.
"These Public Domain images can be downloaded and used for personal and commercial projects."

Open Clip Art Library
High quality clip art in the public domain unless noted otherwise.
Nice browsing categories with 34335+ images.
"This project aims to create an archive of clip art that can be used for free for any use."

Martha Stewart Clip Art
More than 100 archived clip-art-craft templates.
"Personal use only, not for commercial use."
If that's not enough you can search the site with the term "clip art" (minus quotes) for more.

Clkr
Online royalty free public domain clip art.
The Terms of Use are that "....clip art from the site not be used in derogatory, humiliating or condescending towards any person, group of people, associations, organizations or corporations.
Expressing hate towards any one or group.
Porn or advertises sexual activities even if it was legal in your state or country.
Violating any US laws."
You can find the whole document here.
 

Enjoy,
