Physical End Products

Below, you will find examples on how to use your downloads for Physical End Products. An example of a Physical End Product is printing a design on a mug and selling that mug.

The Dos and Don’ts when creating physical products.

You are allowed to

  • Download a design and print/transfer it on a physical item without making modifications and subsequently sell that physical item.
  • Download a design, modify it, and print/transfer it on physical item and subsequently sell that physical item.
  • Sell unlimited copies of the physical items that you create with a design.
  • The physical product can be sold worldwide for an unlimited amount of time (for example, product packaging, apparel, and more).
  • Create physical products that you give away, to friends or as part of a promotional product.
  • Keep selling physical items after your subscription ends, providing that the design for the physical item was created while you had an active subscription.

You are not allowed to

  • Provide a digital copy of the design of the original font/design with your physical product.
  • Modify or create new designs after your subscription ends and print those on physical products that you sell (you can only do this if you created the design while you had an active subscription)

Digital End Products

Below, you will find examples on how to use your downloads for Digital End Products. A Digital End Product is a product in a digital format that is intended for sale to multiple people (for example a wedding invite template). Creating a logo or a website for 1 client is not considered an end product and is fully covered under this license.

The Dos and Don’ts when creating digital end products.

You are allowed to

  • Use elements to create a new design. For example, you are allowed to use floral elements to create a floral themed wedding template.
  • Create new designs combining multiple downloaded resources and adding items of your own, as long as the new design is flattened and the original items cannot be extracted.

You are not allowed to

  • Create end products that compete with the original product. For example, you cannot bundle multiple designs and sell that as a new product, or simply change basic elements such as color and size and sell that as a new product.
  • You cannot sell in a way that is directly competitive with the original item that you downloaded. For example, you cannot grab a resume template, change the elements and sell it as another resume template.
  • Create a digital product that includes single elements or allows users to extract the elements that you’ve used (all designs must be flattened).

Print on Demand (POD) Usage

You are allowed to

  • Create and upload crafts and graphics to POD sites that are vastly different from the original. This means they have unique distinctive elements that are added by you. See an example below.
  • You can use fonts to create quotes, sentences, word art, etc and upload those designs to POD sites.
  • Generate unlimited sales via POD sites.
  • Ship valid POD products worldwide.

You are not allowed to

  • Simply upload designs without adding distinctive new design elements.
  • Combine multiple products to create a ‘new’ design and sell that.
