Free Valentine SVG: Retro Love Design

Love is Everywhere With This Retro Love Free Valentine SVG

For today’s free Valentine SVG I decided to keep it simple and go a little retro.  In my opinion nothing sums up Valentine’s much more than the word love. 

The nice part is this design can be used year round… just switch out some of the colors used on the shirt.  It’s just so classic, kind of like this set of 5 free heart svg files that we designed for y’all too.

Also, this post is extra special because I have a bonus treat for you at the end.

I’m excited to share with you a group of friends that have also created Valentine SVG files for y’all, all totally free!  I have linked their files at the end of this post, past where you download the love design from us.

Scroll down to the bottom of the post to download the Retro Love Valentine SVG and all my buddies files. 

This free Valentine SVG design can be used for both personal and commercial use up to 200 uses.

I would love for you to show me what your finished Valentine SVG brought to life looks like!  Make sure to shoot me an email or I would be honored if you posted it inside of our community.

Please note that the images used to display the Retro Love Valentine SVG design in this post are mock up images.

Center Your Valentine SVG Design

In my personal opinion, one of the trickiest parts when creating a shirt, is being sure that you are applying the design in the correct spot on your blank.  There is nothing worse than taking all your time to pick out a design, get it downloaded, cut, weeded, and applied only to find out that it is totally off center. 

My absolutely favorite way to ensure my design is centered on the shirt is by folding it in half and using the crease of the fold to guide my placement. I also use the finger tip rule when deciding how far down my image should be placed.  Usually applying the SVG directly underneath 3 finger tips from the bottom of the shirt collar is the right spot for an adult shirt.  Kids should be about 2 finger tips or so.  This alignment tool is also super handy if you are on team ruler. (I’m team eyeball all the way) lol!

Even if you decide that putting it on a shirt isn’t for you, I think this design would be super cute as a print and cut sticker too!

Want to Sell?

These Valentine SVG files are available for you to use for personal and commercial use (as long as you are making them in your own home).  A struggle that I know lots of crafters have though, is how much to charge if they want to sell their items. Use our free pricing calculator to figure out exactly the best price for you and your target market. 

So much of pricing depends on how many you make (can you batch them assembly line style and make them faster) and how much your supplies cost.   Even if you are just starting out, don’t be scared to charge an amount that will actually give you a profit! 


If you are a Silhouette Studio user and have not yet upgraded your software with the one time fee to the paid version you will need to upload the DXF version of the file instead of the SVG.  If opening the SVG file and you an error message this could be the reason why.

Unfortunately anytime you are working with the DXF version of the file it cuts crazy slow!  It is just the nature of that specific file type.  It is the WORST!  This is because of how many nodes (little points in the design) are in DXF files.  It happens with every single DXF file that you might want to use on your machine. 
I highly, highly, highly (did I say highly lol) recommend doing a tiny offset of the DXF cutting line and cut the offset on your machine instead of the original line.  Your cutting time will be drastically sped up and so much smoother! (or just upgrade so you can use the SVG)
Head over to our Facebook Community and show off your designs and let’s spread the crafty love as we inspire each other to create!

No matter which of these color versions speaks to you, (or maybe something different all together) I would still love to see your finished project!  Share below the color scheme you plan on using!

More Valentine SVG Files

Some of my buddies will be sharing their additional freebies down below.  Please know that we also have TONS more Valentine files inside of our monthly membership, Club Chaos. 

Our Club consists of exclusive SVG files, project tutorials, guest designers, and more.  While the downloads in the Club are amazing, the project tutorials are so helpful, and the fonts are a blast to design with, the best part is the creative energy found inside.  Club members get their own FB community.  Our members are so close they call it their crafty sisterhood.  I feel honored to be a part of it with them.

Sharing their best tips, their wins, and even what they have learned is so special.  In addition to a monthly bundle of designs, members get project tutorials, fonts, member led workshops (a great way to share your talent), monthly guest designers so we can highlight others in the industry and more.

Crafting and creating is so much more fun (and meaningful) when you share it and your creations with others who can totally understand and relate in the same way you do.  The Club is an amazing way to connect, get plugged in, and cheer others in our community on (plus get tons of awesome files and inspiration to use!). Learn more about Club Chaos here. 

Here is a peek into some of the exclusive Valentine designs from the Club:  

What Are The Perks?

Club Chaos members get immediate access to a library of 1000+ files (and growing each month).  These files have been designed by myself as well as guest designers just for our Club Chaos Community!  Pretty cool, huh? 

Every design is easily cuttable on your cutting machine.  (it doesn’t matter if you have a Cricut, Silhouette, Glowforge, or other) Inside the Club you will have a sisterhood of crafty women cheering you on in your wins and there for support and guidance in case you get stuck or need assistance!

If you join us as a semi-annual or annual Club member you also get immediate access to a BONUS library of exclusive designs as well. I have no doubt that the Club will become your crafting home.

I also know that Club Chaos isn’t for everyone at the moment and I totally get that.  We will be here for you when you are ready to take your crafting to the next level and gain access to more exclusive designs.

Whether you decide to join us in the Club or not, I want you to know that I am so grateful you are here and I appreciate your continued support and contributions to the Chaos Community and to my small business. 

Would you do me a favor and take a second and pin this image? Just one quick pin of an image helps me to continue to serve you, our Chaos Community! 

Thanks so much and I really appreciate it!

File Type Reminder:  Double check that you are working with the SVG file if you want to ungroup, cut in different colors, and manipulate the elements of the design.  When just starting out with your machine, deciphering the various file types can be very confusing. 

The description under file type inside the file folder once it is unzipped might say html file or even internet explorer file (these are both the SVG).  If you aren’t able to ungroup and manipulate the elements in the design you might be uploading the wrong file!  Read more about when to use what file and the difference between SVG and PNG file types.

    I love the retro love desing, but when I click to download nothing happens

    • MyDesigns on January 14, 2022 at 5:08 pm

    I love the retro love desing, but when I click to download nothing happens, can you email it to me?! Iโ€™ve clicked it several times even refreshed the page and nothing is happening.

    • MyDesigns on February 3, 2022 at 9:40 am

      If you are on a phone you will need to click the three dots in the upper right hand corner and select open in safari. From there make sure you have an app to unzip and open the file. ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope this helps!

  5. Donna on January 28, 2024 at 8:01 am

    The retro love design didn’t seem to be downloadable. I’ve clicked every image! The link is missing in the statement : “Download your Free Valentine SVG Here:” and at the very bottom last image, the one with the arrow that says “Click Here,” nothing happens. I’m on a laptop running Firefox….

    • MyDesigns on January 28, 2024 at 9:57 am

      It’s right at the bottom of the post where it says DOWNLOAD YOUR FREE SVG HERE
      Then it has the name of the file and you can click that. ๐Ÿ™‚
