From Common Craft Members...

Common Craft helps me achieve clarity and demonstrate animation techniques for others. I use the Cut-outs to create explainer-type intros for my elearning courses.

Stephanie Harnett Digital Learning Specialist

I mainly use Common Craft cut-outs to explain concepts using iPad apps. The cut-outs allow for great creativity without all of the hassles of creating the objects from scratch.

Common Questions and Answers About Cut-outs

About Cut-outs and "Common Craft Style" Videos

What do people do with Common Craft Cut-outs?

Cut-outs are digital images (.PNG and .EPS) that can be used for visuals, like clip art, in projects and presentations. Some people use the Cut-outs to create Common Craft Style videos.
 

Can I download a sample image?

Yes! You can download a sample for free on our testing page.
 

Can I use the Cut-outs at work?

Of course! We allow the Cut-outs to be used commercially and royalty free. If you are the only person using the Cut-outs, you can join Common Craft with an "Individual" membership. To provide Cut-outs to an entire organization, simply select the appropriate number of employees when joining.
 

Why do you provide two file types? Which is best for me?

The two file types cover different use cases. For most members, the standard .PNG format is the best. These images are high resolution and sized for presentations and other projects. The other format is a "vector" format (.EPS). With our Editor Plan, you can download any Cut-out as a vector and change it with your own software.
 

How can I create my own "Common Craft Style" video?

You have a couple of options.

1) We recently partnered with GoAnimate, which is an online tool for making animated videos. A package of Common Craft Cut-outs are included for users of the "GoTeam" plan at GoAnimate. Further, Common Craft Cut-outs can easily be uploaded to the GoAnimate video maker using any GoAnimate membership plan. In this case, a Common Craft DIY membership would be required to access the Cut-outs.

2) You can use our downloadable Cut-outs to make Common Craft style videos using a variety of tools. We love to see teachers, trainers, students and organizations make their own videos and presentations.

Learn a proven, step-by-step method for making Common Craft Style videos at the Explainer Academy's DIY Media Maker Course.

Can I share my own Common Craft Style videos on sites like YouTube?

Yes.  We only ask that you use the phrase "Common Craft Style" and not "Common Craft" as this is a registered Trademark.
 

Can I make a Common Craft Style video about my company, product or service?

Yes! This is a great use of the Cut-outs. But please note, no Cut-outs or videos made with Cut-outs can be resold. For example, you can make Common Craft Style videos about your own business, but cannot sell the videos.
