Default Animal Patterns for signs

I have been searching the web but can not seem to animal patterns or templates {dogs, bear, wolf etc.} as well as sign shapes {banner, shield etc.} that I can use for making signs.
Any help would be appreciated.

Bob

Check out a site called all-silhouettes.com. There are various shields and other items you can use for patterns etc. my other suggestion would be to google those items and search the images. You should be able to print and use them as is. Are you using any type of graphics design program on your computer?

Corel Draw has a large inventory of what you are looking for.

I also purchased Art Explosion 600,000 Images. They have a web site at
Nova Development | Consumer Software for PC & Mac.

They now have Art Explosion 800,000 Images for $99.99. I would imagine
there will be ship charges or maybe you can still buy their products from
Staples like I did.

Good luck on your search.

If your looking for a design program look into Inkscape. It's a free download. They have several tutorials if I remember correctly to help you with the programs tools an functions. I use this program often to vectorize drawings and things like that

Thank you for the help,

Inkscape does have what I am looking for, but it seems in order for me to use it I would need a graphics program they mention Adobe Illustrator.

Unfortunately, right now I cannot afford to purchase a graphics program like Corel Draw.

I have tried to download a couple of things from the web and tried to resize them with Paint. But I cannot get them to print on a larger scale.

So I guess for now anyway it is back to the drawing board.

Once again thank you for your help.

You don't need another program for what we are doing.... Your not having the designs routed by a cnc or for that matter cut from vinyl or anything your just using it to design and trace or cut after its printed out

I guess I misunderstood. The way I read it was that you have to have a graphic program in order to use the graphics.

I will go back, download one and give it a try.

Dan thank you for your help and patience.
