The Long Version
Our graphics are under a commercial license and are available for most uses including commercial, editorial and personal. You are allowed to use our graphics for websites, print advertising, television, movies, documentary, video, newsletters, business card design, packaging, t-shirts, displays, logos (the image cannot be copyrighted or trademarked), apps, cd covers, magazine articles, books, games, facebook pages etc…
If you want to put any of our vector graphics on merchandise such as t-shirts and coffee mugs and resell them or use it as trademark or service mark please contact us. (We allow this usage but we would like to be notified where and how you will be selling your merchandise). In some cases we may want to feature your product on our blog and Facebook page. Items for resale in large volumes (1000+) may need a special license. Please contact us for details.
- You may not resell, sub license and/or place any of vector graphics, modified or unmodified, on website or any other medium and offer them for redistribution or resale.
- You may not use our vector graphics for any illegal or unauthorized purpose. You must not, in the use of our vector graphics, violate any laws in your jurisdiction.

After we have successfully received your payment, the selected vector graphic(s) will be instantly available and emailed to the email address you provided. This may take up to 1 hour, but usually happens within seconds. If you do not receive an email after this time period, contact us through our website.
You may not copyright our images as stand alone images. If you use them as part of a larger creative work (i.e.: illustrated children’s books) you may copyright your larger work which may include our images. When in doubt please ask us for clarification.
Penalties for reselling, or for using our images without downloading them here using a real name, will be far greater than the cost of the original license. We are friendly, and happy to help so please contact us when in doubt. Publishing our images without obtaining rights is not only illegal, it’s not cool. We’re sure you wouldn’t want people stealing your hard work.
