WHAT IS AN SVG FILE?
Now, I’m hoping and assuming that if you are searching for free SVG files to download that you do indeed understand what an SVG file is, but for those of you who are after a bit of clarification, here is the basic gist of it.
SVG is the abbreviation for Scalable Vector Graphics.
Now sometimes videos are easier to follow than text, so watch this video below:
Basically, a vector graphic is an image that has been produced through the joining of lines. As crafters we really love vector graphics because they scale really well. You can easily resize the image to your desired size without it going all grainy and pixelated (which is what we are used to seeing when we enlarge photos too much).
So Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) is essentially graphics that can be scaled from small to large without any loss in the quality of the graphic.
Electronic cutters have been created to work with SVG files because they are simply the best to work with. So the machine has been designed to understand and read SVG files so that the blade can cut around the lines of the vector graphic.
So SVG files are ready to cut. And you can easily find loads of free SVG files for download (see the massive list above), which means that you can create some stunning projects for little cost.
Hopefully, that made a bit of sense to you.
