FULL LICENSE TERMS

PERSONAL USE

Personal use is defined as using designs for your own personal use. This means the items are not sold or distributed. Designs may be used for personal projects made for yourself, family members, and friends.

 

SMALL COMMERCIAL USE

Commercial use is defined as using designs for commercial purposes or monetary gain. This includes selling or distributing items made from our designs.

Limited small commercial use is included in this license for up to 2,000 copies of the design on physical or digital end products you sell as a small business with up to 5 employees. Please note that 2,000 is the grand total of copies per design (not 2,000 t-shirts, and then 2,000 tumblers for a sunflower bundle pack).

For larger scale use (2,000+ copies) or use in broadcast media, please contact us.

Fonts have no quantity limitations.

“Licensee” means you, the purchaser of this item. “End Use” means a handmade product that is ready for use.

An example would be a physical t-shirt with the design ironed on with Heat Transfer Vinyl or Paper Flowers already assembled ready for hanging. You cannot sell templates/kits/transfers etc for your customers to make up themselves. 

The commercial license ends with the licensee. Your clients cannot re-sell the items you create with licensed items.

 

Allowed Uses:

✓ Physical Products for Commercial Use or Non-commercial Use: Licensee may create physical end use, fully assembled products such as, but not limited to, Paper flowers, decorations, drink ware, apparel, home décor, stationery, keychains, cards, and cake toppers. 

✓ Fonts can be used to create quotes, texts, names, templates or may be incorporated in designs as much as you would like. However, you cannot convert individual letters/numbers/words using the font to different formats (for example SVG, Embroidery formats, etc) and sell those files or install/embed on 3rd party platforms/servers.

✓ Graphics (eg. PNG files) can be used to create digital end products that you sell. In all cases, the product that you create must have distinctive new features that will create an entirely new product that won't compete with the original product. Combining multiple downloads into 1 product is not enough. E.g. If you download flowers to create a floral wedding invitation, you can sell that flattened template. If you download a flower and create a card with just that flower without making significant modifications to the original product, this is prohibited. Templett and Corjl use is allowed as long as graphics are flattened, and your customer cannot extract the original image or modify at any stage. Uploading to POD sites, 3rd party sites and digital marketplace websites like Shutterstock are prohibited.

✓ No attribution is required

SELLING ITEMS WITH OUR PATTERNS ON THEM - PLEASE NOTE:
Our digital pattern images cannot be added to an image catalog of available designs your clients can choose from or be used within a digital mocked up photo.
However, you are able to show photos of your PHYSICAL items with the final designs on them.

We regularly check the usage of our graphics/designs and may ask you to provide us with your order number for you to be able to prove that you have bought a license from us for each graphic/design used.

 

WATERMARKING

In order to sell products with DIY Craft Tutorials' designs, we require your product photos/ads where our designs are used to have a watermark over the design (eg. your business name/logo) in a way that makes tracing/image stealing difficult. Flat lay mock-ups are very easily traced, and it leads to the design being traced and offered for free in social media sharing groups or stolen and re-sold. For this reason, you must watermark your images.

 

EXTENDED LICENSING

If you are a designer, retailer or wholesaler and produce more than 2,000 copies of any product, you will need an extended license to use any DIY Craft Tutorials design for commercial use. Please contact us for tailored licensing.
