They have the cutest borders and themes to put quality cuteness into whatever you make – like name tags, Valentine’s Day Cards, etc. Their clip art collection also has priced items but you can click here for the free ones.

    Thank you for this information! It was really helpful! I had read somewhere that you can't use Microsoft Clip Art…I have a ton of stuff where I use it and I'm remaking all of it. I didn't think that you could use their fonts either? Has anyone else heard this??

    I was told personally by Microsoft that none of their clip art can be used for profit, so beware of using it to sell.

    Thank you!!! I am new to TpT. Just created 6 products for Speech-Language Pathologists using Microsoft clip art. I started to panic about my legal right to use it and thought I would have to delete my products.

    Patti, it looks like (for now) you'll have to right click on the clip art then save it. I see no other way (at the moment).

    How do I download from Sweet Clip Art? I don't see a link to do that?

    Thanks for your help!

    Pat- the only free one that you can use for commercial use is Microsoft's Clip Art as long as the clip art used does not take up more than 70% of your product. The Graphics by 'Graphics from the Pond' allows for commercial use of their graphics – both the free and the priced graphics.

      I just looked at the My Cute Graphics terms of use, because her graphics are very cute :), and she specifically states that you CAN use her graphics on TPT if you credit her somewhere on the product. Yay!!!!

  16. Pat

    So are all the clip art sites mentioned above free for commercial use except Sweet Clip Art?

    I also forgot to add that Sweet Clip Art does state in its policy that its graphics cannot be used in things that are for sale just so fellow Teachers Pay Teachers sellers are aware.
