General FAQ

Can I use a purchased item in a freelance project or contract work for a client?
Yes. However, if the client intends to sell more than 500 units of the End Product you create, you will need to purchase an Extended License or multiple Standard Licenses. If you create the End Product for a client, your rights to purchased Items are transferred from you to your client.

What are the End Product requirements?
End Products must be significantly different than the original Item and require time, effort, and skill to produce. 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.

What is an End Product for Sale?
An End Product For Sale can be either a digital design or physical item that you and/or your client intend to sell to more than a single person (wholesale, drop-shipping, etc.). For example, if you purchase a graphic and include it on a t-shirt design for a single, paid client, this is not considered an End Product for Sale. If you purchase that same graphic and incorporate it into a calendar that you design and sell to multiple people, that is considered an End Product for Sale.

What is Personal Use, Commercial Work, Contracted Work, Client Work, etc.?
Both the Standard and Extended Licenses allow for Personal Use and Commercial Work of many kinds. However, if purchased Items are used in an End Product For Sale (whether by you or a client), special terms apply (a limit of 500 units sold under the Standard License, and an unlimited amount of units sold under the Extended License).

Personal Use:
Personal Use is defined as using purchased Items in a manner that has no potential monetary gain. Personal Use projects cannot be related to any business, non-profit, or other organization of any kind. All purchased Items may be used in an unlimited number of Personal Use Projects. Examples of Personal Use include using a graphic to create t-shirts for a family reunion, using a template to create a birthday card that you send in celebration of a friend's special day, using a photo in a piece of wall art that you create for family member as a gift (no money changes hands), etc.

Commercial Work:
We define Commercial Work to be any work done that is not for Personal Use. Synonymous terms include Contracted Work and Client Work.

How many times can I use a purchased item?
A purchased Item may be used in one Project. 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. However, all purchased Items may be used in an unlimited number of Personal Use Projects.

For example: you are not allowed to purchase a graphic to include in an End Product flyer design that you create for a real estate company, and then use that same graphic when designing the End Product of a website for a bakery, because these are unrelated End Products and therefore do not fall under the same Project.

Is there any limit to the number of impressions for my End Product?
For the most part, there is no limit to the number of impressions for your End Product. However, when purchased Items are used in TV, films, streaming video, on demand broadcasts, and/or online videos, exceptions apply. For these mediums, your End Product is allowed up to 10,000 views per month. For anything over 10,000 monthly views, contact the shop owner directly in order to inquire about further rights options.

Can I redistribute Items I've purchased?
No, items purchased are for your use only. You may not include the original purchased items (or source files) in any distributed end products.

Do I have to credit the original designer of an Item when I use it?
No, but that sure is a nice thing to do! We love it when people share their new designs with us so we can brag about how talented they are on Instagram!
