How to Make It Free! (Or Almost Free) for Commercial Use, Too!

I often see questions about Personal License vs. Commercial License — What does that mean?    Can I sell items that I make with my Silhouette and files that I’ve downloaded?  I am in no way an expert on Copyrights or Licensing – but I feels its very important to be careful about using things that you download from the internet & using it to sell things.  I often download things from places that state Personal Use Only — so to me, that’s clear I can’t use it in business -whether free or I’m giving it away here on the blog or in class.  So, I love it when I find items that state clearly “Commercial License Included”.   So, I wanted to share some of that with you today!

The Hungry Jpeg is one of those sites where you can download lots & lots of things that are FREE – even for Commercial Use!    There are fonts, (even the fancy, swirly ones) graphics, mock ups & lots of other great items that are perfect for crafting with your Silhouette — whether for personal or commercial use!   Here are a few examples of things that are free for Commercial Use.

There are tons more – but I just wanted to share these with you!  Now, while everything in the Monthly Bundles come with a Commercial License, not every Freebie does.  But, its clearly marked & indicated — so just be sure to check.  There are also tons of Free Mock Ups — and Fonts for just $1.00!   I made the following Mock up with the Longshine Script for just $1.00.   (If you tweet about your purchase, you can get a discount!) And if you want to know how to do this – -check out “Cutting For Business” post today!  Its a great tutorial on how to create free mock ups!  Christine has tons of great tutorials for operating a Silhouette business — If you don’t follow her — you should!   And she is going to be presenting, once again, at our All Things Silhouette Conference in April & November!!  These will be held in Peachtree City, GA — just outside Atlanta! Screen Shot 2016-02-15 at 9.16.18 AM

Also, if you love those “fancy fonts”, but don’t want to deal with working in other programs to access all of the glyphs & alternate characters — They have created a new “Crafters” Category — where you can purchase all types of fonts that are accessible to all & you don’t have to work with them in additional software.  These are for sale – but are reasonable.  This one is just $1.

Many other files are available in the Crafters Section for a reasonable fee!  You will potentially make the cost back in your first sale!  This one is just $5!  It has so many potential applications!

In addition to all of this!  TheHungryJpeg has a Monthly Bundle that is an incredible value!!!  Each month, for only $29 – you get a tremendous value!  Packed full of more than 32 fonts (and a whopping seven bonus fonts!) as well as 20 graphics packs, here is what is in the February Bundle — all with Commercial Use included!  (And again, if you share a Tweet – you get 10% off of your purchase!)

So, as you can see — I think this is an awesome site – and a great value for Silhouette folks!  And to make things even better – they are a sponsor for the All Things Silhouette Conference!  If you are attending, you will be receiving an email soon about downloading the FREE FONT that they are providing for the Conference & our contests!    So head on over today & download your Freebies!  Whether or not you are selling — this is a great, trusted site!

Hope you are all staying warm – -I’m headed out to scrape the snow off of my car — so I can get my hair cut!  I have my priorities!!!

Until next time —
