Working with non-profits or small businesses on a budget means that I almost always have to get creative with images. There's not usually enough of a budget to purchase an image, and not enough time for me to create an image from scratch.
But before I head to Flickr or Google to search through an uncurated, never-ending scroll of Creative Commons images, I head to these sites first:
The Noun Project http://thenounproject.com/ (some free with attribution, some paid)
Icon Finder https://www.iconfinder.com/
(some free, some paid)
Vintage Printable http://vintageprintable.com/
The Graphics Fairy http://thegraphicsfairy.com/
The Vintage Moth
New Old Stock http://nos.twnsnd.co/
Little Visuals http://littlevisuals.co/
