1- What does 'Personal Use' mean?
My freebies are made for you to use in craft projects that you keep for yourself or make as gifts. You can also use them in creations that you donate to charities in your community. They are not to be used in artwork, crafts or digitals that you sell. I have over 260 digital sheets and sets in my shop that are for small commercial use and you're welcome to use those in all kinds of items for selling (you can read my commercial use terms here).
There are many reasons why artists have these policies. It can be due in part to the graphics we acquire from other artists and their end user terms, which don't always allow us to take them any further than our own art. There's also the fact that creating freebies takes many hours of creativity and they're given as a token of thanks for supporting the rest of our work. And finally, there's the unfortunate fact that copyright infringement is rampant on the internet and we therefore have to try and establish some boundaries around the work we put out there for others to use.
I hope this helps to explain the terms for using my weekly goodies. If there's something you think I didn't cover here, please email me.
Your support and kind comments on this blog have been so wonderful over the last few years. I look forward to many more freebie days with you! Thanks for stopping in.
