Free SVG Files Frequently Asked Questions (FAQS)
► What is a SVG File?
So what’s an SVG file and why is it important to know how to make them? SVG stands for Scalable Vector Graphic. The lines in SVG are very precise. They will not lose any quality if they are resized very large for a giant sign or very tiny to put on a coffee mug or make a delicate flower.
This makes SVGs the preferred file to use for our cutting machine projects. The things you can do in Cricut Design Space or other cutting machine software is very limited. But once you know how to make SVG files the possibilities are endless.
► What are the benefits of using SVG File formats?
If nothing else, SVG file formats have proven to become a major ally among Cricut and Silhouette cutting machine users, image printing companies, as well as media groups. This is due to their many benefits, which include:
- Scalability. With standard files like GIF or JPEG, scaling a picture up or down will result in a loss of quality. SVG files won’t lose quality and can be scaled up or down to the size that you need.
- Easy Editing. SVGs are unique in the sense that they can be edited in classic programs like Adobe, but also can be edited in a text editor thanks to its XML coding.
- Linking. You can also add linking, metadata, and scripting to an SVG file if you so choose. This makes them great for responsive website design.
- Scripting. Much like HTML, SVG file formats allow people to program scripts inside the images. This makes it easier to code websites using this format, and also lets you add cool features to your site’s design—much like CSS.
- Fast Loading. Due to the code-based way that SVGs are made, using them in web design means that you’ll get a faster-loading site.
