have websites, or shops at Etsy or eBay, where they advertise
their embroidered wares. Oftentimes an embroiderer will want
to show different designs that are available to be stitched
for their customers.
It can be more
efficient and effective to use our images of the designs,
rather than stitching your own samples. For that reason, we
allow our images to be used on other websites.
1. Give credit
where credit is due. On each page where an image from our site
appears, add this:
Image(s) provided by Embroidery Library, Inc.
That credit must
be on every webpage that displays an image from our site. If
it isn't, then your copyright gets muddled with our copyright,
licensing is a mess, and it's an expensive and time-consuming
process to get it all sorted out. Add the disclaimer and
everything will be a-ok.
crystal-clear on your website or listing that you are selling
the embroidered piece, and are not selling the design file.
3. If you're
opening designs in a software program and using that
software-rendered image to market your service, then we
recommend this disclaimer:
Software-rendered images of designs by Embroidery Library,
featuring your own photos of your embroidered items, then
there's no need for a disclaimer.
