Vectorstash is a repository site by texturemate.com specifically for free vector art. Vectors are saved as .svg files and are available for direct download or viewing in a svg-capable web browser. Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) is an XML-based vector image format for two-dimensional graphics that also has support for interactivity and animation. SVG images can be created in a number of ways since they are an open standard and are saved in a similar way as xml files. They can be edited in a simple text editor, or opened in a more capable graphics editor such as Inkscape or Adobe Illustrator. SVG files have a lot of benefits when compared to traditional rastor graphics, such as maintaining the same, small filesize no matter how large the image needs to be. Vectors also do not suffer from pixelation issues as they get larger since they are not fixed to a specific resolution. At any time, vectors can also be exported to rastorized bitmap, jpeg, or .png files if needed.
All vectors on Vectorstash are completely 100% free for use in your design project, whether commercial or for personal use. The only requirement is that these vectors cannot be re-distributed in their un-edited form. Feel free to share your art or graphics design that is vector-based or request new vector clipart.
