Finished Project Photos

by MyVinylDesigner 1. September 2011 08:07

Although it is fun to download and save other people's finished photos across the web for reference ideas, IT IS NOT OKAY TO USE OTHER'S FINISHED PHOTOS in your websites, blogs, stores, and other advertising efforts.  Even if you crop out watermarks.  It is a form of theft.

We address this issue because it is more serious than some might realize.

TO THOSE WHO SHARE PHOTOS:  In an effort to protect our customer's Strut Your Vinyl Stuff photos, we kindly remind everyone that no photo is completely safe in the digital world.  It helps to use a watermark of some kind, but sometimes that isn't an option.  Just know that when you share a photo on facebook, others may download it and use it for personal reasons.  It's an unfortunate reality.  We want to do what we can to help protect your awesome photos from being misused.  Hopefully in time, we will be allowed to disable the download feature.


TO THOSE WANTING TO USE OTHER'S FINISHED PHOTOS:  We understand that it takes a lot of time to create your own finished project photos, and when you see a particularly cute idea, it's doubly tempting to use that photo.  Especially if you have the premade design to create it.  May we suggest asking the designer of photo if you can use her/his photo on your website/store/blog/facebook page, giving credit where credit is due.  Alternatively, may we suggest pooling with a few individuals where you each share one another's photos with customers.  There are several ethical options for creating finished photos.  CLICK HERE ... to learn about using stock photos.


TO THOSE WHO FIND A SITE USING OTHER'S FINISHED PHOTOS WITHOUT PERMISSION:   Even on a worldwide web, avid crafters are a tight-knit community who take care of one another.  It's quite easy to recognize a particular artist's style and creation, whether it in digital art, photography, scrapbooking, vinyl, etc.  Please let us know immediately at vectorart@myvinyldesigner.com when you see other's finished photos being used without permission.  Your name will remain anonymous.

 

If you happen to find your photo used without permission, we gently remind you to approach the situation with professional kindness.  Sometimes, there is an honest misunderstanding, especially if the photo retains its watermark.  It just becomes an education thing where the person needs to know that finished photos, in general, may not be shared without the owner's permission.  Just a gentle reminder.

Craft Cutter Tutorials

by MyVinylDesigner 15. January 2011 01:21

January 14, 2011

We are in the process of creating tutorials for how our designs are used on various craft cutter machines.  We are interested in partnering with individuals who use and understand the following combinations of cutters and softwares:  (one person per combo needed)

:: ProvoCraft Cricut Expression with Make The Cut (MTC) software
:: ProvoCraft Cricut Expression with Sure Cuts A Lot (SCAL) software
:: ProvoCraft Cricut Expression with Fairy Cut software
:: eCraft machine with eCraftshop software
:: Pazzles Inspiration and Inspiration Design software
:: Bosskut Gazelle machine and FunTime software
:: Quickutz Silohuette SD machine and Silohuette Studio software
:: CraftRobo machine and Robo Master Pro software
:: Xyron Wishblade machine with Create & Cut software
:: Klic-N-Kut Groove or Max machine with KNK software
:: or, any other machine/software comobo not listed

In the tutorials, we wish to share several pieces of information including:

:: what file formats can be used and whether they open or import into the software
:: several guided screenshots (and/or a detailed video clip) showing the entire process of using our designs, from the initial download and import to cutting the vinyl and showing a finshed project using that design. We will not need the weeding vinyl/transfer tape application process shown.  Only computer and hand shots are requested.
:: tips, tools, and terminology helps for those who might be using this software for the very first time
:: all the cutter/software specs
:: all the pros/cons from your point of view
:: links to forums and/or groups that use this particular software/cutter
:: a comfortable, easy-reading, and professional writing and/or speaking style
:: several pleasant, inviting, and easy to understand pictures

We'd arrange a telephone conversation prior to starting the project to answer questions and open up a line of communication between us.  Project deadline is February 14, 2011.  Interested individuals must be open to feedback and have a willingness to help us make these tutorials outstanding in every way.  In exchange, we would offer you every design on our website that you might not have - AND - every design released during the next two years (through December 2012) at no charge.

If interested, please send us an email (vectorart@myvinyldesigner.com) by Wednesday, January 19 with the following information:


1- Your name and phone number
2- What cutter/software combo you'd like to be considered for
3- How long you have been using this cutter/software combo
4- A brief explanation as to why we should select you
5- Links to your website or blog that gives us an idea of your style

We’ll then make a decision and get back to you next week.  Thanks!


Deb & Michelle
