What is an SVG File?
First of all, let’s get our definitions straight.
An SVG file, which stands for scalable vector graphic file, is a standard graphics file type used for rendering two-dimensional images.
SVG files generate clean graphics at any scale. They’re also SEO-optimized, usually smaller than other formats, and capable of dynamic animations.
They’re perfect for logos, graphics, and, most importantly, cutting machines!
How to Open SVG Files
There are many programs that will open SVG files, but since most of you will be opening SVG files for your cutting machines, we’ll put our focus there.
SVG files usually come in a zipped folder and need to be extracted before you can use the files.
Once you download a file, you’ll need to unzip it before you can import it into your software program.
To unzip your SVG file, double-click the folder and choose “extract all”.
You’ll be asked where you want your files to go. I often choose either my desktop or a folder on my computer. Just remember where you extract your files as you’ll need to find them again.
Once you are in your design space (probably either Cricut Design Space or Silhouette Studio), you’ll upload your file and begin your project.
What to do With SVG Files?
If you have a cutting machine, such as a Cricut or Silhouette, the possibilities for being creative with these files are endless!
