For all of you DIYers who designed your own programs…
What was your best resource for quality clipart and graphics? Did you find free graphics, or did you fork over a fee to use them?
I’m interested to know what your resources were…

A year ago when we made our programs, one of our best resources was Deviantart (www.deviantart.com). A lot of the graphics, vectors, brushes on Deviantart have terms set by the artist. Most of them allow you to use their graphics, but the stipulation may be that you not use their graphics commercially or you credit them somehow.
If you’re looking for more decorative and ornamental design, Dover Publications (http://store.doverpublications.com/by-subject.html) produces clipart books that come with CDs for purchase. Just go to Clip Art and Design on CD-Rom.
Another good site that was actually referred by the ladies from Hello Lucky was Vintage Printable (http://vintageprintable.com/wordpress/). These are public domain vintage photos.
Some other great sites for free vectors for non-commercial use are:
Briarpress (www.briarpress.org) – Just look in their cuts and caps section.
Okay, hope that helps!

Try vectorstock.com, there’s some really great stuff on there. You’ll have to pay but it’s like $1 per image, it’s worth it. Also if you want to go the free route try http://www.sxc.hu/ search around you may find something that will work. 🙂
