How can I use the graphics or patterns on their own?

How can I use the graphics or patterns on their own?

If your project requires you to use the resources in a stand alone fashion, I do offer an Enhanced License Upgrade.  This will allow you to use the resources on their own for Physical Products only.  If you would like more information you can view the license upgrade here: https://prettylittlelines.com/product/enhanced-license-upgrade/

*If you want to create your own piece of digital clipart using the resources, then this is not permitted. Even if the design is a wider original design, if this is being sold as a digital clipart file, it will not be covered by our terms of use.

Can I sell Digital Stickers using your resources?

By FAQ's, Licensing

Can I sell Digital Printables using your resources?

No, not really.  Digital stickers are bit of a grey area and are generally not allowed under my license or any of the marketplaces I sell on. With these types of products, it really depends how the original resources have been used.  They still must have a set purpose, are distinctly unique, use the resources minimally and are something that couldn’t be used of anything else.  I do usually ask to see design examples of what the customer is creating before offering confirmation as to whether their usage would be allowed as we want to ensure that the original resources are kept reasonably secure and used in a way that does not compete with the original designer.

You are however, able to make physical stickers for sale as long as all the other guidelines, ie. original design etc. are adhered to.

Can I sell Embroidery Templates using your illustrations?

By FAQ's, Licensing

Can I sell Embroidery Templates using your illustrations?

Unfortunately no, the licence does not allow you to make and sell templates or stencils in any way, so embroidery files come under this usage as well, due to the end customer essentially working with the resources within their embroidery or die-cutting machines.   Nor are you allowed to sub-license or license out any product that includes the resources.

You can however, create embroidery designs and put them on physical products to sell.

What sort of Digital Products I can make?

By FAQ's, Licensing

What sort of Digital Products I can make?

The most common uses are digital planners,  journals, photo albums, calendars, organizers, scrapbooks, colouring books (sold as flattened print on demand digital books).  These are all allowed providing that they are an original design with a set purpose. For example, a flattened calendar design that uses the resources within a wider original design would be considered as within our terms of use, as that end design can only really be used as a calendar – and not used for any other purpose/project.

*If you want to create your own piece of digital clipart using the resources, then this is not permitted. Even if the design is a wider original design, if this is being sold as a digital clipart file, it will not be covered by our terms of use.

Can I sell Digital Planners using your resources?

By FAQ's, Licensing

Can I sell Digital Planners using your resources?

Yes!  as long as the planner contains pages that can really only be used as a planner, such as to-do pages, diary entry pages and checklists etc, then this should be fine. I know that some digital planners will come with stamps and stickers, however these particular elements are generally not permitted to be created using the resources.

Printable Wall Art:

No, not really.  From what I mentioned above, this can make wall art a bit of a grey area and is generally not allowed under my license or any of the marketplaces I sell on. I know that sites like Etsy allow sellers to offer digital downloads for wall art so that the customer can print them at home.

What do you mean by “wider original design”?

By FAQ's, Licensing

What do you mean by “wider original design”?

Under the current Commercial Licence and Extended Licences you are NOT able to use any Resource on it’s own, but required to use them as part of a wider original design.

To form an original design, you must combine your purchased product with other resources and elements.  The purchased product must not be the primary integrity of the design. Your new end design needs to be noticeably different from the original resources you purchased.

In addition to the above-mentioned requirements, you’ll need to make sure that the original Resources cannot be extracted if you are intending to sell a digital end products.   Add text overlap items, use backgrounds and other design elements to achieve a “baked in” effect.

Here’s a visual example to help you out:

 

If you would like to use the Resources in a stand alone fashion, there is an Enhanced License option.  For further information,  please contact me at hello@prettylittlelines.com

I don’t have Paypal, how can I place an order with my Credit Card?

By FAQ's, Licensing

I don’t have Paypal, how can I place an order with my Credit Card?

No Paypal, no problemo!  You don’t need a Paypal account to make a purchase.  You can use your credit card through their service without having or making an account.

Here’s how you do it:

Step 1

At checkout when you go to pay you’ll be directed to PayPal.   Select the option to pay with a debit or credit card – this usually down the bottom underneath the log-in prompt.

Step 2

Next a new window will appear.  Put in your credit card and all your info including an email address so PayPal can send you your receipt.  It may appear a bit different depending on which country you’re in.

Step 3

Once you have clicked thePay Now” button, you will be prompted to create a PayPal account.   Just click DECLINE if you don’t want to create an account.

IMPORTANT: If your country doesn’t allow you to use PayPal, you can still purchase my illustrations by visiting my ETSY shop here: www.etsy.com/ca/shop/PrettyLittleLinesArt

*If PayPal is not accepting your credit card, it may be because you already have an account that is linked to your credit card which prevents payment with it without logging in first.
