Please contact me for commercial licenses.

Questions and Answers:

Occasionally a business may want a unique clip art image that no one else has used or seen. To purchase a “rights protected” image means you buy the right to use an image exclusively, for a specific purpose. The seller promises not to sell that image to anyone else for that purpose, so your rights to the image are “protected.” Please contact me by email to discuss options.

1. WHAT COUNTS AS A PRINT AND DIGITAL IMPRINT?

One print is one physical print which utilises the design. So say you print 50 copies of an invitation you’ve designed using these resources. That’s 50 prints.

One digital imprint is one digital download/sale per product. Say you have created a printable wedding invitation. Each time it sells – that’s a digital imprint. Each time wedding suite with 5 pieces sells (where each piece has utilised the design element), that’s 5 digital imprints.

2. I DON’T WANT TO THINK ABOUT HOW MANY PROJECTS I USE A PRODUCT IN, WHICH LICENSE SHOULD I BUY?

Large Commercial License – with this license, you can use the design in unlimited commercial projects, create unlimited prints & digital imprints.

3. I WANT TO CREATE INVITATION TEMPLATES TO SELL, CAN I?

Yes, but only with the Special Template License. To purchase this type of license, on the product page, click on the drop down menu for “License Options” and select Template License.  I do check usage from time to time so be sure to have the proper licensing in place.

4. I AM A WEDDING DESIGNER & I WANT TO USE THE SAME CLIPART FOR MANY BRIDES!

You need the Small Commercial License as this is use in “client work” if it’s for small runs of print (under 1000 prints). If you need to print large quantities, you need the Large Commercial License.

5. CAN I USE YOUR GRAPHICS TO MAKE INVITATION DESIGNS FOR MY CLIENT?

Yes, you can! For this, you need the Small Commercial License or Template License or Large Commercial License. The Personal Use license does not cover client work.
