COPYRIGHTS ... as of January 1, 2010
First of all, thank you for taking the time to understand our copyrights! We want to help you be successful in your business.
Please remember that although you can show our vector designs to your customers to sell for whatever finished price you'd like, you may not sell or offer our digital designs, in any digital format, at any time.
Our vector designs may be downloaded, cut and sold in or as a finished product only. The design, as a finished product (vinyl, embroidered, sewn, handcrafted, silk screened, engraved, etched, printed) may be sold online, through a home-based business, or in a storefront setting. The design may NOT be used for a wholesale or retail stencil or pattern of any kind. Also, pictures of the design may be placed online showing the finished product for sale. We encourage you to watermark your finished photos so that they cannot be easily copied and misused by others. There are many wonderful watermarking services, like Auctiva, that help with batch watermarking.
If you wish to create your own non-finished-product-jpgs, meaning that you show only the vector design, please use low resolution 180px pictures and watermark them well so that they cannot be instantly replicated in one of the many "vectorizing" softwares available. With all the awesome digital technology there is, people can easily take a picture and instantly "vectorize" it, or recreate the very image we sell.
Alternatively, you are welcome to use the pictures (jpgs) from our website for your business use. You may also embed the rotating galleries (excluding the finished photo gallery) from MyVinylSupplier.com in your blogs, webpages, and emails. All jpgs are digitally safe and perfect for displaying designs. The rotating galleries will be globally updated every time
we introduce a new design. Photos from the finished photo galleries (meaning the photos showing other people's work) are NEVER to be shown outside of MyVinylDesigner.com and MyVinylSupplier.com.
Our catalogs may be placed on websites as downloadable PDF files or as viewable JPGS, and emailed to third-party customers. All catalogs that are electronically transmitted MUST have a copyright text showing on its pages. If a picture of a catalog page is placed online, it must include the term "copyright" on the picture. Our name does not have to show, but the copyright information on the catalog page MUST show at all times.
What may NOT be sold in any digital format, is the vector design. For instance, the design may not be sold (in part or in whole) as a digital item online or on a CD, converted to another digital format, or sold or distributed through any electronic media. We also respectfully ask that you DO NOT share or trade your digital purchases with others.
Also, our designs may NOT be part of a printed document for sale, even if it’s just to recover printing costs. Any catalog that shows our designs MUST always be available at no charge. If you wish to create your own catalog that includes our designs, pictures must be watermarked with your business name or a marking of some kind so that the pictures cannot be instantly cropped, scanned, vectorized and replicated.
Should there be any questions, whatsoever, about the usage of our vector artwork, please ask. Otherwise, ENJOY our designs for all the time and energy they are meant to save you, and visit us often to see what’s new and exciting!
Please note: Our online copyright notice takes precedence over all dated copyrights that accompany collections and zipped folders.
