Tips and Tricks: Graphics Bundles

January 27, 2015

tips and tricks head

Looking for the latest fonts, textures, Photoshop actions, Photoshop brushes, vectors, cool graphics programs, stock photos and other neat stuff?

Finding free for commercial use graphics isn’t easy, nor are free graphics always of a high quality. When you’re ready to begin investing in your business and want to take your card designing to the next level, there are now companies that provide “graphics brushes” on a regular basis for their customers. Prices will vary, as will the contents of these bundles. Sometimes you’ll get a bunch of fonts, other times a miscellaneous package containing different things. The one thing they have in common is value for money.

For example, just recently we picked up a font bundle – a value of over $500 if purchased individually – for less than $30.

We’ve personally purchased from three companies we can vouch for in terms of quality and service. No viruses or fake files here. And no, we’re not being paid for the endorsements.

One thing you have to watch for is EXTENDED LICENSING, meaning you can use the contents of the package for unlimited personal and commercial projects. The terms will be set out plainly for you to see. It’s up to you to ensure whatever you buy is a good fit for the intended purpose.

Don’t forget to bookmark the page with the bundle and the terms on the website for inclusion in your Notes to Reviewers.

And now here are three providers we can recommend:

Inky Deals: Most often offers limited time mixed bundles like vectors, fonts, textures, etc. Prices can go as high as over $100 for larger bundles, but you can pick up great deals and every Sunday they offer free downloads. Be sure to sign up for special offers by e-mail. Here’s a link to the FAQ. Payment by PayPal or credit card.

Mighty Deals: Offers limited time single element packages (like a font family at a reduced price) or mixed bundles. Like most, the prices are reasonable. Offers freebies. Sign up for email deals. Payment by PayPal, Visa and MasterCard.

Design Cuts: If you really like artistic, hand drawn fonts and graphics, Design Cuts has some of the best deals in town. Most bundles around $29 and certainly give value for money. Active community and Facebook, the administrators are friendly and approachable plus regular freebies. Sign up for email deals and to place an order. Payment by PayPal and credit card.

Save your receipts for tax purposes and have fun!

    I’ve used all of them and yes the deals are good. They’re also very helpful if you have any questions. Sometimes you don’t see EXTENDED LICENSE, but I always ask because sometimes the answer is yes, but the designer has only used the term ‘Commercial License’.

    I’m a huge fan of Design Cuts and have bought quite a few of their discounted design bundles. They all come with an extended license and the discounts are amazing at over 90% off! They’re a really friendly team with an active design community. I use elements I’ve purchased from them in my designs all the time. You should see their current font bundle! Absolutely awesome.

    Thank you so much for the feature Corrie, we seriously appreciate the shout out :). Thanks too Natalie for the kind words, you’re such a great member of our community as always, and I’ve loved seeing your recent greeting card designs.
