Vectors are really useful because of their scale-ability which makes them perfect for cross platform posting. They are ideal for giving your Halloween graphics that “spooky” feel. But sometimes you simply don’t have the time to draw something yourself. Luckily there are some great sites that provide vectors. But where is the best place to find them? We’ve scoured the web in search eerie images to help you find the sites with the best vectors possible this all hallows eve…
Pixabay is a firm favourite here at Giraffe for discovering both vectors and normal images. All of these except the premium options are public domain and no attribution is required when using them. Alongside that it has a slick, easy to use layout. According to their site “you can use any Pixabay image without attribution in digital and printed form, even for commercial applications,” which is great news for marketers.
Vecteezy is a great resource for discovering vectors, many of which have free to use licenses, which makes it perfect for finding vectors for one-off graphics. It can also be useful for larger projects as it has quite an extensive community of artists offering premium options. According to their about us section they have over one million visitors a month.
Vector Open Stock is also a good place to find vectors with different licenses – in a handy format. Information about each vector is displayed when the images are hovered over which makes for a speedier ease of use. However, most licenses call for artist credits.
Although it has a slightly less attractive website than over options, and it can be confusing when differentiating between premium and free graphics, Vectorportal is nonetheless a useful site for finding Halloween vectors. While it might not necessarily be our favourite, you may well find some gems on here if you are willing to put in the effort.
That’s our round-up of the best places to get spooky vectors this Halloween. There are definitely plenty of other options out there, each with their own positive (and negative) points. Got a site that you swear by? Please feel free to comment with it below. Happy Halloween!
