Are you looking for free SVG cut files with commercial use? Good news! I’ve compiled a list for you!
Commercial Use vs Personal Use Licenses
Finding free SVG cut files with commercial use is harder than finding free SVG cut files with personal use. Why? I don’t think as many designers offer free commercial use cut files.
Not sure of the difference between commercial use and personal use? Commercial use licenses allow you to use the SVG on products you sell; while personal use licenses only allow you to use the file on projects you make for your own use.

Not All Commercial Licenses are Equal
When you shop for free SVG cut files with commercial use licenses, you need to be sure to read the license for each file and at each site. Unfortunately, the terms from one website to another will vary greatly. Since designers are able to create their own licenses, one designer may say you can only create 10 products using the file – while another may say you can create an unlimited number of products. Still another designer may require a link back to their site, while another doesn’t allow print on demand.
If you are selling products using a free commercial use SVG cut file, you should keep a record of the license. This is as simple as saving the license included in the zip file to a folder on your computer.
Free SVG Cut Files on Cutting for Business

I have free files for all the major holidays like Valentine’s Day, 4th of July, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and more. I also offer free files for the seasons – Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall. I have several free files for crafters, business owners, adoptive families, sports teams, and so many more.

No Obvious Trademark Infringements on this List
Do you have a favorite site for commercial SVG cut files that isn’t listed below? There are several sites that offer free SVG cut files for commercial use that have obvious trademark infringements. For example, if I come across a site with free commercial use Disney files, or sports teams files – I do not list them below. Unfortunately, these sites do not have your best interest in mind and are likely selling files illegally with the promise of you being able to use them for sale.

Thank you for this list! I am browsing while waiting for my Curio to arrive. While doing so, I noticed that Dreaming Tree (formerly 3D SVG) does not state that their free files can be used commercially. Or can I just simply not find that part of the text?

Thank you SO much for posting and listing all of these files and websites! As a beginner to the world of cricut/small business dreamer, I have been a little over my head! Reading through your blog and continuing to read the ones listed, and finding all of these free comm. use files, has been a major help! Thanks so so much from a mom of 3 and full time crafter! Stay golden ????

With so many free images for personal use and images for commercial use...do you have suggestions for how to organize/track which images and fonts you have downloaded are available to use commercially. Is there a trick for flagging them in your files so you don’t accidentally use one that you’ve downloaded for “personal use” earlier and then decide to use the image for something you want to sell later? I’m new to this and I just don’t want to make a mistake now that will end up with an accidental trademark infringement later.
Thanks so much!

I do one of two things: 1) rename the file with PU or CU before or after the title. 2) Only download items for commercial use.

Hi Christine, Thank for this fantastic list along with how to search for commercial images. I love the fonts and will definitely download them. I don't know if I need to print out the commercial license information and put it in a binder but I decided it doesn't hurt to have it. I will not print out the graphics or fonts but I am going to give credit to the companies. I think they deserve it with all the hard work they do.

Yes, lots of users print out the licenses to keep on record. It's nice of you to give credit, but it isn't necessary.

Thank you Christine, this is very helpful. I know of some of these sites, but you have done a great job of searching out some "less known" sites!!!! Much appreciated!

My pleasure, Kathleen!
