Resource Designer List . . .

I promised a resource list of designers that allow you to use their images in art work you sell. Here's the start of one.

Things to remember:
  • Most designers do not allow for their images to be used in "print on demand" services like Zazzle or Cafe Press or the like.
  • And most don't allow you to mass produce things. So, when you're famous and having your art printed 10,000 copies at a time, you won't be able to use anyone's images but your own, without special permission or licenses.
  • And of course, you cannot redistribute their images as is or as part of your own collage sheets.
  • Check your designers' TOU every time you purchase. As I told you in my last post, I was so disappointed to find out my most favorite designer of all, is no longer allowing commercial use of her images. I wouldn't have known had I not asked so I'm glad I asked before I made a new purchase.
  • Be sure to read each designer's Terms of Use carefully and look for updates with every purchase.
These are my favorite designers that don't require additional licenses for commercial use at the present time: (they're all linked to the appropriate shops)
These designers require an additional license fee for commercial use but very much worth the wee bit of extra money:That's all I had time to link up and double check on tonight, but I'll be adding more.

Marsha, firstly I love your bright bold work - just gorgeous! Secondly, thanks so much for that list... selling through my local gallery, I sometimes get a bit paranoid about images in any vintage pieces, so this is much appreciated as a resource. =)
