What is an SVG File?
The letters SVG stand for Scaleable Vector Graphic.
That probably sounds like something very complicated, but to simply put it – this is just a file that will work in your cutting machine, such as a Cricut machine.
Vector files are used constantly because they are graphic files that are easy to resize without the quality of the image being affected. They are therefore used a lot for things such as logos and other graphics.
However, you can’t access an SVG file unless you have the correct software. That software that you need comes with a cutting machine. Most software that comes with a cutting machine purchase is able to open SVG files directly.
What Types of SVG Files are There?
There are numerous graphics that can be created out of SVG files and your cutting machine. These include:
Holiday cut files – Christmas, Thanksgiving, New Year, Easter, Summer, 4th of July, Halloween, and many more.
Shapes – squares, circles, triangles, hearts, diamonds, and many others.
Hand lettering sayings
Animals – all kinds, including dogs, cats, unicorns, horses – and many many more
Gifting files – Gift wrap, tags, labels etc
Seasonal cut files
Licenses for SVG Files
If you plan on using SVG files for a business – such as producing products that you will be selling, make sure you buy a commercial license.
If you are just using SVG files for personal use you shouldn’t need a special license – but check the rules that come with the file and your purchase.
Free SVG files can rarely be used for commercial use, so make sure to check those rules very thoroughly.
