You are responsible for having the appropriate editing software to open and edit purchased graphics. EPS files require vector editing software.
1. General Information
When you purchase graphics from us you are purchasing only a limited, non-exclusive license to use the graphics. You may not share graphics, download links or accounts with anyone. Please, take measures to ensure these images cannot be stolen from people visiting your site, home or office. Please be sure to flatten images into your design when using for web design.
2. License Information
We offer four license types. Please read the following license information carefully.
#1 Non-Commercial Use License: Any graphics that are being used for personal use, educational use, by churches or non-profits for non-commercial purposes do not need to place a credit (unless they choose) and do not need to purchase additional licenses. Commercial use by educational institutions, educators, educational staff, churches, non-profits, etc. must still purchase the Commercial Use license when using for commercial purposes.
#2 Credit Required Commercial Use: Credit required anywhere graphic is used both online and in print. When possible, please make the credit include a clickable link back to where you purchased the graphics from. At minimum, you must place the credit as:
Graphics © ClipartWhimsy
#4 Mass Production & Large Commercial Use: You must purchase an additional license for this use. License fee depends upon desired use and quantities mass produced. I define mass production as quantities larger than 500 being printed at one time and large commercial use as companies that employ more than 5 people. Please contact me if you need to purchase this additional license.
*** I do NOT consider creating designs to sell on print-on-demand websites (such as, CafePress, Dazzle, Merch by Amazon, etc.) as mass production. To sell products using my graphics on print on demand sites please either provide credit per the #2 Credit Required Commercial Use License or purchase the #3 No Credit Required Commercial Use License. ***
3. Image Manipulation
You may change the color. You may add other images and text to the graphic or use this graphic with other graphics as needed. You may not pick apart the graphic or redraw parts of the graphic. If you need modifications, please contact me with your customization request. I will be happy to make these minor changes and offer them as a new set. Thanks!
4. Keep Creations Friendly & Appropriate
You may not use the graphics in any way that is deemed inappropriate, racist or obscene. If you purchase these graphics, they still belong to me. I do not tolerate certain things and do not wish for my graphics to be used in a way I would not approve of. They may not be used to sell adult products or used with text of obscene, racist, pornographic nature. Use of these images must be used in a clean, kid-friendly way. If your product or design is not kid-friendly, then you may not use the graphics. To clarify, I am not saying you have to make kid designs. But if a child sees your design and it would be inappropriate for that child to see it then that is an unacceptable use.
5. Usage Information
All my graphics are commercial use and royalty free. Purchasing these graphics does NOT give you the copyright. Commercial use means that you can use them to place on a product and sell the product, NOT the graphic itself (digital or printed). Royalty free means that you do not have to continue to pay me any royalties for additional usage. Royalty free does not mean cost free, copyright free or license free. You must adhere to the terms of the license you purchased to legally use any graphics.
My graphics may never be used as part of a logo or as a logo. You may decorate a logo with these graphics, but you will not be able to trademark any version containing my graphics. All of the graphics on this website are © Karlynné Metzger ClipartWhimsy.com and cannot be trademarked. Also, if you want to use these graphics to illustrate a book or create video content, you would need to discuss this directly with me before purchasing graphics.
You may not resell these graphics or offer them in a collection of graphics. You may not sell these images in a scrapbooking kit or on other clip art websites, CDs, etc. You can use the graphics to make products with. You can then sell the product (t-shirts, web templates, etc) and not the graphic itself. Also, please note, on products you create you may not just slap my clipart onto products. You need to create a new design with them. That can be as simple as adding a phrase, but it has to be something and not just my graphic placed on a product!
You can use these graphics for whatever other personal or small commercial use project your imagination allows. They are perfect for use on your CafePress, Zazzle, SpreadShirt, Skreened and other print on demand shops. They are great for making invitations, scrapbooking (not kits), etc. Please be aware that, you must add something to the graphics in your designs or use them with other text or graphics on the products you sell. If making digital products like website layouts, you must flatten the graphics into other elements in the design This ensures that someone cannot right click and obtain my graphics!
6. Acceptance Of Terms
By making a purchase you agree to be bound by these terms for as long as you possess or use these images. These terms & conditions apply when and where graphics are used by you, whether they were purchased from this site or obtained from me in another way.
Please Note: If you are purchasing these graphics on behalf of a business, organization or school you may not also use the graphics for your own use. You must purchase for your own use and use on behalf of a company – even if you own the company – unless you are a sole proprietor and/or run the business from home. Please contact us if you are unsure of how this term affects you.
Please, contact us with any questions.
