Embroidery Library Image Use

Many customers 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.

Follow these guidelines:

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.

2. Be 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, Inc.

If you're featuring your own photos of your embroidered items, then there's no need for a disclaimer.

If you have questions about the above, let us know! Send an email to support@emblibrary.com.
