Handy Links

Fonts

Dafont this is an awesome site that’s easy to spend hours on, remember this fonts are for personal use only, sometimes there’s an option to purchase for commercial use.

Fontbundles worth liking on facebook, loads of great fonts and regular freebies.

$1 Deals and Discounts part of Fontbundles above, like their page on facebook and they’ll update on deals.  These are often limited first come first serve deals so you need to be quick.  There offers are AMAZING!!

Hungryjpeg again like these guys on facebook, great fonts and regular freebies.

Identifont the site was a saving grace for me today, I fell in love with the font Lavanderia but when I downloaded it the “e” included a swirl and without buying the font I couldn’t find a way to get rid of it.  Identifont lets you search for similar fonts, so I was able to find something similar which downloaded without an issue 🙂

Myfonts.com these guys have the same as the above, you can upload an image and it’ll try to match the font.

Graphics

Designbundles sister company to Fontbundles, lots of cool easy to cut/print graphics packages and new freebies come up each week.

Hungryjpeg these guys have a section for crafters, they’ve got some lovely quotes and phrases and other imagery.

Craftbundles – another great source for svg files and freebies.

Etsy This site is a mecca for designs, if you type in what you’re looking for and the word svg at the end, so for example campervan svg you’ll see a ton of designs pop up, generally they’re pretty expensive to buy, you have to wait a few seconds after purchase to download the design.  I use Etsy a lot.

Shutterstock this image library is massive and predominantly focused on photographic images but if you know what you’re looking for you can find some gems.  I really liked the polygon style images and bought a bear polygon which I’ll post in a tshirt tutorial later.  I find searching for the thing you want and writing “line drawing” afterwards takes out a lot of the photos.

Cricut Freebies on facebook a great source for free files

LoveSVG – these guys have really nice simple svg files lots of quotes, phrases and simple graphics available to buy but also some for free and free font offers.

SVGSalon another great selection of SVG files, some freebies and some great deals.

Vinyl

Cricut the Cricut shop sells tons of supplies, make sure you scroll to the bottom of the page first and click on United Kingdom to get through to the UK store.

Crafty Cutter I love these guys, they sell everything, standard vinyl, glitter vinyl, holographic unicorn vinyl, HTV, transfer tape and loads more.  Like their facebook page as they often post offers and tips like “Fiver Friday”.  They’re incredibly helpful if you have questions and often send a few sample swatches with your order to show you what else they provide.

GM Crafts Another really great supplier for HTV and Self Adhesive vinyl, print and cut, tools and other stuff.  Well worth looking up.

Xpres Super helpful, supply lovely vinyl and sublimation equipment.
