FAQ

Frequently asked questions

Can I use your clipart to make things for sale?


The original digital clipart in my shop can be used for personal or commercial purposes. Commercial use does NOT require an additional licence purchase. You do not need to credit back to my shop. Yay!

Digital Clipart can be used to create commercial physical/printed goods or digital "instant download" goods, but must be SIGNIFICANTLY different than the original clipart. You must combine the clipart with other creative elements to form an Original Design.




What's an "Original Design" for commercial use?


An Original Design would be something you put time, effort and skill to produce, ensuring the clipart is not the primary aspect of the design or end product, and you have combined the resources with other original design work.

You must not redistribute the original clipart to any third parties in a manner that allows for the extraction of the original clipart (i.e. Your design must be in the form a complete, finished design in JPEG format or "FLATTENED" before sale).




Is POD site use allowed?


POD site use (examples: Society 6, CafePress, Zazzle, Spoonflower etc.) is NOT ALLOWED.

That is not to be confused with Drop Shipping Companies (Examples: Printful, Printed Mint, etc.) used to manufacture your products. This is very much allowed.




Are there any other restrictions for commercial use?


Using these original clipart files to make your own clip art, digital papers, add-ons, or other design resources that you sell is NOT ALLOWED.

Do not redistribute, resell, share or copy. I am granting you a non-exclusive, non-transferable right to use the original clipart, but I retain copyright to all original clipart files purchased in my shop.

If you are unsure if use in your product is ok, please send me a message. I'm happy to help!




Why is my download a PDF? What is a bit.ly link?


Many of my digital products exceed my website provider's file size limit. These products are kept off-site at my file transfer service: Dropbox.

Your pdf download contains a link to your actual product zip files saved in Dropbox, but the link is simplified through a URL shortening service called Bit.ly. This allows for a simple URL instead of a long URL of symbols, numbers and letters. If you are not comfortable using Bit.ly or Dropbox, please contact me and I will happily upload to an alternative transfer service of your choice (Google Drive for example).
