Everything in Small Commercial + Template License plus the following:

Examples of Uses are same as Small Commercial & Template License, but you need not keep track of quantities you sell



1. What counts as a print and digital imprint?

1 print is 1 physical print which utilises the design. So say you print 50 copies of an invitation you’ve designed using these resources. That’s 50 prints.

1 digital imprint is 1 digital download/sale per product. Say you have created a printable wedding invitation. Each time it sells – that’s a digital imprint. Each time wedding suite with 5 pieces sells (where each piece has utilised the design element), that’s 5 digital imprints.

2. I don’t want to think about how many projects I use a product in, which license should I buy?

Large Commercial License – with this license, you can use the design in unlimited commercial projects, create unlimited prints & digital imprints.

3. I want to create Invitation Templates to sell, can I?

Yes, but only with the Special Template License. To purchase this type of license, on the product page, click on the drop down menu for “License Options” and select Template License.  I do check usage from time to time so be sure to have the proper licensing in place.

4. I am a Wedding Designer & I want to use the same clipart for many brides!

You need the Small Commercial License as this is use in “client work” if it’s for small runs of print (under 1000 prints). If you need to print large quantities, you need the Large Commercial License.

5. Can I use your graphics to make a invitation designs for my client?

Yes, you absolutely can! For this, you need the Small Commercial License or Template License or Large Commercial License. The Personal Use license does not cover client work.
