Hey there everyone! It was a bit quiet on the fresh blog this past month or so even though you were promised more content. The thing is, we were busy buying and selling a new home! Good things ahead and I will share more about that towards the end of the year if everything goes as planned. How about some free graphics talk?
You mentioned free graphics?
Sharing is caring and so I decided to write a blog post about all the amazing resources you can find online for absolutely free. Think; graphics, mockups, photography, fonts etc. Personally I buy the goods I need on a project-to-project basis but only after I have checked through all the resources I have gathered over the past few years. A lot of the previews I make for my products (like this font) contain mockups and graphics. Having an extensive resource library to turn to saves the bank.
Below I’ll give you a short and sweet list of my favourite places to check every week for their latest free goods.
Free graphics and my favourite places to gather them
On the following websites you can find a variety of free goods ranging from free graphics, fonts, mockups to social media templates and full wordpress templates.
My account there is by far the most extensive source of free goods I have gathered! I always go through my past purchases (including the free ones) there first to see if it contains the stock I need. In my humble opinion they have by far the most quality free goods every week. Worldwide bestseller items have shown up in their free goods section many times. Since last week you also get 3 free items extra if you have purchased for a certain amount ($15 at the moment of writing) in the preceding 14 days. That is a pretty sweet deal if you purchase a lot of graphics.
Powered by Creative Market
They update their free goods at a slower rate compared to Creative Market but I’ve seen some nice ones pass by there as well. Their website has a bigger focus on crafters so you will find more free SVG cut files there for example. They also have an awesome $1 goods section that often contains wonderful items. I know when uploading there that the default price is $1 and I often wonder if some sellers forgot to change the price on their upload. I even messaged some because I don’t want to feel bad if the seller made an honest mistake. However, a lot of sellers leave the $1 for a short time for promotional purposes which I of course love!
This website focuses on fonts and their font freebies are delish. As far as I know they upload a new free font every week.
This website is linked with Fontbundles but they have other resources besides fonts as well. I’ve seen a lot of free SVG cut files pass by there too.
If you don’t feel like checking all these websites on a weekly basis yourself, feel free to follow my Pinterest board. I update that a few times per month, pinning every free awesome item I find.
Got any awesome sites to add? I would love to hear about them so please leave a comment below. I will update this list if I find more good quality free resources that update regularly.
Free stock Photography
I’m working on a list of free stock photography. I have quite an extensive list on those because I love to use stock as drawing reference for example. Stay tuned if you want to be the first to know about my favourite websites for those. I’ll try to make a blogpost about that soon. You can sign up for my newsletter here to be notified about updates.
