Commercial Use

You can buy a commercial license for the free sets from my shop. When you check out, specify which graphics set you would like to license, and enter your name and business name. The sets cost £4.00 each to use commercially and cover you for up to 500 impressions.

Standard licenses

The standard license is limited to a maximum of 500 reproductions, whether in print on online. So if you use a design for digital scrapbooking sets, for example, you could only sell a maximum of 500 copies. If using the designs for print, you could for example, only print 500 copies of a flyer, CD cover, magazine etc.

Extended Licenses/ Logo licenses

For high quantities of reproduction (over 500), you can either buy a standard license again (thus adding another 500 impressions), or you may buy an extended license.

For print/tangible/web goods:
Unlimited reproduction, or use of the designs for business logos is £50
Resale licence is available in some cases, please contact me for more info

Remember that you are buying a license to use the design, not the design itself. I retain the copyright to the Please contact me about extended licenses, stating your full name, address, and the usage you require. design.
