Terms & Conditions

UPDATE - August 4, 2015

 

am currently in the process of updating my polices on use, etc. If you have any questions please contact me and I’ll get back with you as soon as possible.  Also, these policies are subject to change at any time.   Below is my first update:

The prices are for personal and small business use (up to 100 of an image).  If you anticipate, hope to, or are pretty sure you are going to sell more than 100 of an image please purchase a license which is available.

DIGITAL PRODUCT DESIGNERS

My artwork is available to create digital printable files for personal and/or commercial use.  All image files must contain enough of your own artwork so that the image can be considered a new unique design.  All files must be flattened, not available in layers, and not on light or white solid backgrounds.  Acceptable file types are JPEG and/or PDF.  All digital files can only be sold for personal use.

What you must do:

You must change the image so that it will be transformed into a new unique image

You must flatten your creation when it is finished

You must sell only JPEG or PDF versions

You must sell your creations for personal use only

What you cannot do:

No image can be made available as is, it must be changed to create a new image

No image can be made available on a solid light or white background

No image can be made available in layers

No image can be resold as is

No image can be sold for commercial use

By "changing the image" I'm not referring to changing my image itself, I am referring to what surrounds, is behind, in front of, overlapping, etc.

If you have any questions please contact me and I’ll get back with you as soon as possible.

END OF UPDATES SO FAR, more to follow soon.

  3. The products may not be altered or changed in any manner without our prior permission. You MAY do the following, however, consistent with these terms of use:
    • Use only a portion of a larger original image, provided that the portion is itself a complete image when removed from the larger original image.
    • Remove the white background from an image and replace it with a transparent background. You may NOT share the original image or the image with the transparent background, however. If you decided to store the image in a "tubed" form, it can be for your use only, and neither the tube nor the tubed image may be shared.

    • Use the purchased products in original projects and layouts and share those finished original projects, subject to the following conditions:

    • If the project or layout is printed and/or assembled and given or displayed in a 3-dimensional physical form, then you may place the notice on the project or layout itself, or on an attached card or tag.
    • The notice must be in a color and type large enough to be read easily, though if placed on the project or layout, it may be positioned on the project or layout so that the notice least interferes with the aesthetic appearance of the project or layout.
