We're pleased that individuals wish to create personal craftwork projects using our products and designs. There are a few conditions involved however...

In order to protect these rights granted by the law, each hand crafted item that is created for the purpose of sale, must be made by hand, personalised and be unique in nature by the seller and may not be reproduced, copied electronically / digitally or mechanically, or be mass produced using employed labour or workers for hire or by any other means including graphic, digital, electronic, mechanical or photocopying. The seller must make it clear that the items are handmade or personally created by the seller and not a product of the company.
The licensed brands we work with, may not be used for the purpose of creating logos, clip art and digital art work for sale, blog and trade banners, marketing material and advertising.
We do restrict the maximum number of craftwork projects to a total of 500 per year, for the purpose of sale for profit – subject to the following:
