The following Professional
Crafters Policy allows professional crafters to use The Vintage Workshop™ images
on hand-finished products, sold directly to the consumer under the following
terms. The intent is for the professional crafter to be able to use
these designs to make a limited number of hand-finished products for
resale. The limited reproductions of these images for non-profit, non-commercial
use is also allowed (church functions, school fundraising, etc.)
This policy allows you to
sell only what you alone can make. Any individual may sell
up to 75 hand-finished items per image, royalty-free. Beyond
75 items, you are considered a distributing merchant and are required to
open a licensing account. To
put it simply, if you personally create or handcraft a product using The
Vintage Workshop™ CD-ROMs or Download Collections (including free
images) and sell it directly to the consumer you are not violating the
copyright, provided that the phrase, “Created
with imagery from The Vintage
Workshop™ Copyright 2007” appears
on each piece, printed on a permanent
label. Removable labels
or hangtags are NOT permitted as an exclusive means to provide this information.
Further information about labeling, including printable
labels for you to download, is provided at the bottom of this page.
This agreement does NOT allow for
digitized reproduction of The Vintage Workshop images or designs. Anytime
artwork is altered so that other people can create with it, please contact
us at firstname.lastname@example.org for
a licensing agreement BEFORE using, distributing or selling the designs.
