Although the designs on our site are very affordable, the fee to produce a single custom design project is usually too cost-prohibitive for a single customer. Our contributing designers charge an hourly fee for all new work and most designs start with a four hour minimum. Please use the contact form on our site if you would like to receive a customization quote.
Although we do accept requests for new design themes, we are very selective on what new designs will be developed. Our goal is not to have the most designs, but to have the best, most commercially-appealing designs. We no longer accept requests for color-modification of existing designs or themes that would only appeal to a small market audience. We realize that business customers receive requests for unique color combinations, and recommend that the customer use a graphics program to apply color overlays to existing designs themselves to meet their customer's specific requirements. Please note that we can not include images that are licensed to others (sports logos, tv characters, etc).
We do not offer the designs in CD format because we frequently update, change and add new designs.
The majority of our business customers modify our designs themselves to accomodate varying layouts. The four core layouts provided within each design set are readily adapted to fit within other products. Rather than attempt to create an extensive line of layouts, we have chosen not to expand our existing templates and allow our customers to create additional layouts based on our designs to suit their individual needs. Our "How To" guide provides suggestions for creating alternate layouts.
Here are some examples of business-use limitations based on questions we've received from customers. We strongly recommend reviewing our Conditions of Use prior to purchase or contacting us with any questions. By downloading any images from our site, you acknowledge acceptance of our Conditions of Use.
The images can not be used to create Do-It-Yourself kits, either for download on your site or as pre-printed kits in craft stores/shows.
The images can not be modified for resale to other businesses. The non-exclusive license allows you to use the images for your business to create a personalized and printed product for your clients.
You can have an affiliate program where affiliates refer sales directly to your site. You can not offer franchises or distributorships using our designs. This includes any program in which you charge partners a fee or a percentage, allowing them to offer our designs to their customers. All sales must originate from your site and you must do the customization and printing.
You may use the designs for business use only if your business produces a finished/printed product for your own customer. However, you may not make available for download, distribute, or resell any images in the collection for use by others (As per our Conditions of Use). You can use the images to create coordinating layouts which you offer to your customers as a finished/printed product. You may not use our designs to create images which you resell to your customers or other professionals. Here is a summary of our usage conditions, but we strongly recommend reviewing our Conditions of Use prior to purchase. By downloading any images from our site, you acknowledge acceptance of our Conditions of Use:
The non-exclusive license is granted for each image file you purchase directly from us and will remain in effect as long as you continue to comply with our Conditions of Use. You can not transfer, sell, or convey your rights to use the images. For example, if you sell your business you may not include our images in the purchase. The new owner would be responsible for acquiring their own license via purchase from us.
The non-exclusive license automatically becomes null and void the moment you violate our Conditions of Use. At that point, your license is rescinded and you may no longer legally use our images in any format or for any purposes. Continued use of the images without a license is a copyright infringement and we will take the necessary steps to protect our copyright. This includes filing a DMCA with your hosting service, Google, eBay, or any other service providers which may be displaying or providing access to the copyrighted materials, if you continue to use our images following termination of the non-exclusive license.
