  • By purchasing the right to use the Resources from any of my online shops you agree to be bound to the terms and conditions of this license and acknowledge that you will lose your right of withdrawal from the contract once the download or streaming of the digital content has begun.

Standard License

 END PRODUCT

You may use a purchased Item in a new End Product as long as the End Product meets the following requirements: 

  • End Products must be significantly different than the original item and require time, effort, and skill to produce. You must combine design elements with another design elements to create your unique design. End Products must not be used or sold in a way that is directly competitive with the original Item you purchased. End Products must not redistribute the original Item to any third parties in a manner that allows for the extraction of the original Item. An exception: You can use my posters (wall art) and seamless patterns as they are for personal purposes, as well as for commercial purposes for printing on fabrics or creating postcards, invitations, posters. But you can not sell it as a digital product for downloading and use them on products that are sold in print shops (!)

  • You may use the graphic or graphics in one commercial Project that could consist of several End Products – a Project is defined as a complete and cohesive undertaking that may result in one or more End Products. Any End Products included in the one Project must be directly related under a single concept. (An example of One Project with many End Products would be a wedding stationery suite that includes an invite, save the date, thank you note, menu, name tags, etc). When Sub-Items within Item Packs or Bundles are used, they do not all have to be used in the same End Product nor the same one Project. For example, an Item Pack containing 10 icons could potentially be used in 10 Projects if only one icon is used per Project and each icon is used only once.

  • The lifetime sales of the End Product for Sale do not exceed 500 units. If a Standard Licensed Resource is purchased and used to create an End Product for Sale of which the sales exceed 500 units, either another Standard License or an Extended License must be purchased. For End Products that are not offered for sale, you may distribute as many copies of the End Product as you like. 

FOR FONTS SPECIAL TERMS APPLY:

Here, an End Product must be a unique implementation of the Resource. For example, you may purchase a font and use it to make unique word art, but you must not redistribute the original files in any way. Fonts may only be installed on a single computer, but may be used in multiple End Products.

Restrictions

 YOU MAY NOT:

  • Sub-license, resell, redistribute, provide access to, share or transfer any graphics/fonts, even for free. Uploading any graphic to a web site at a resolution that exceeds the display resolution of the intended viewing device will be deemed to be an attempt to redistribute the graphic. You agree to take all commercially reasonable steps to prevent third parties from accessing and/or duplicating the Resources. If you become aware of any unauthorized duplication or access of any of the Resources please notify me via email. 

  • Use resources in any digital product for downloading or use them on products that are sold in internet print shops. 

  • Make graphics/fonts/end products available on a digital asset management system, shared drive, or the like for the purposes of sharing or transferring the Item, and you must not permit an end user of the end product to extract the Item and use it separately from the End Product.

  • Resell a Resource directly, or within a wider design/product where the original Resource can be extracted in its original form in both digital and print format. 

  • Resell a website template whereby the embedded fonts, graphics or other Resources can be extracted. For example – web fonts, or background textures could be extracted by a new customer, without them owning this original license – this is not acceptable. This is acceptable when the template files are passed on to an individual client, although a license will be required for both yourself, and your client, to justify this. 

  • Register as a trademark the Item or the end product incorporating the Item – not even logos. If you use the Item to create a logo for yourself or a client, keep in mind that third parties can use the Item too, even in another logo. 

  • Resell a logo template, where the fonts or graphics are used in a stand alone fashion (i.e., with no supporting elements, and not constituting a ‘wider, original design’). Using fonts in a stand-alone fashion for logos is acceptable for individual client projects and personal use, but not for templates sold en-mass. No source files are permitted to be supplied to the end users, including layered files or PNG files that allows for easy extraction of the original Resource. A license will be required for both yourself, and your client should they need the editable/layered files. 

  • Use any Item if that use could result in a third party’s claim that it acquired rights in the Item that are contrary to this license. You shall immediately remove the Item from any unauthorized location or use, including an unauthorized social media platform or website. 

  • Use fonts or graphics within e-books, or downloadable publications whereby the fonts or graphics can be extracted in their original form from this document. 

  • Use fonts or graphics to create alphabets or letter form related products, digital alphabets (alphas), adhesive stickers, embroidery letters, rubber stamps, die-cut products, or stencil products. 

  • Falsely represent, expressly or by way of reasonable implication, that any Item was created by you or a person other than the copyright holder of that Item. 

Extended License

  • The Extended License allows you to use Items in any manner permitted under the Standard License, and pursuant to the obligations and restrictions therein;

  • You may use Resources in multiple commercial Projects; 

  • You may also use Items purchased under the Extended License to create End Products for Sale, in which the End Product for Sale may be sold an unlimited number of times.
