8. General Commercial Use License
If you make a purchase from or submit an order to the Website, you are granted a license that entitles you to certain personal and commercial uses related to the Item that you purchased or ordered, with the exception of print-on-demand and high-volume production orders.
If you will be using an Item for high-volume production (defined as more than 500 copies) or have made a print-on-demand order, you must purchase an enterprise license from the Website for each individual Item. If you have any additional questions that are not answered by this section, please contact us.
- You may use any purchased Item for personal and commercial use. This means you may use it for yourself or create a product with or using the Item that you hold for sale.
- The purchased Item may be used on a physical product as long as the Item has not been altered or modified.
- Example: You purchase a graphic of an elephant from a Seller. You may make a t-shirt with the elephant graphic on it, as long as you do not make any changes to the elephant graphic. You may then sell the t-shirt. Further customization or personalization (such as adding a name) for the purpose of commercial resale is additionally permitted.
- Fonts may be used to create commercial use, text-based digital designs, but the font itself cannot be re-sold or re-distributed.
- The Item itself—in its original digital form as purchased from the Website—may not be resold, sub-licensed, transferred, shared, or otherwise re-distributed in its original digital form (e.g., as you purchased it).
- The Item may not be included in the sale of another product.
- Example: You purchase a design of a flower. You may not include the file of the flower design as part of a bundle of other items held for sale or with the purchase of a t-shirt displaying the flower design.
- The Item may not be used with or on print-on-demand services.
- Digital cut files may not be digitized and re-sold as embroidery files.
- The Website’s images of any Item, or of a finished product containing any Item, may not be used to promote or market your product. This means it is impermissible to use the Website’s stock photos or mock ups of Items listed on the Website, whether for sale, illustration, marketing or otherwise, for your own use.
