Deciding to use Halloween clip art can give business messages and craft projects visual impact beyond what you might expect. Using it is a good idea for people who are not artistic but still want to have more professional-looking Halloween cards, invitations, scrapbooks and personal web pages. Anyone can use it, but I've experienced that scrapbookers have even more creative uses for Halloween clip art, because they use it to make printable or digital scrapbooking papers. They may have started with standard Halloween clip art but what they ended up with is something else entirely. There are also those who use clip art images to make their own Halloween skeleton masks. They either download larger clip art images suitable for masks or make them out of free printable masks available on the Internet. Either of those methods make it easy for almost anyone to create a custom-looking mask for free.

There are many clip-art images suitable for Halloween, such as pumpkins, skulls, spider webs and witches -- to name just a few. There are also a variety of Halloween messages framed by scary and fun borders. And if you prefer a lighter touch, humorous Halloween images are available too. You can even find cute animated Halloween cartoons. Some can even be a little risqué, but that just makes the holiday even more fun. There are a multitude of sites on the web where you can download Halloween clip art for use in word processing or graphics software. But even though there are sites that offer free clip art galleries, you may want to buy a subscription to a website that offers a large selection. No matter which site you choose, it’s important to use their on-site search engine well to avoid wasting time by browsing through every image.

Many people choose to compile their own vintage Halloween clipart collections they use to dress up Halloween greetings, personal websites and a variety of print projects. This cuts down last-minute searching, which is especially helpful during the hectic time right before Halloween. And since Halloween comes around annually, having Halloween images on hand will save time not just this Halloween but in the future. Here are a few tips to help you get the most out of the images: Size and color is key when using Halloween clip-art images as backgrounds, so text placed on top of it won't be obscured because the images are too similar. In addition, it's important to stick to a central style and theme so your final results won't be too gaudy. You'll find that following these simple rules will give you good results.
