Graphics Terms of Use


These terms of use apply to any clipart or graphics set that you purchase from my Teachers Pay Teachers store.  The TOU’s are included in each download, so no need to copy these!

Purchasing this clipart set entitles you to one non-transferable single-user license.   You may use these graphics for personal and/or commercial use.  However, by purchasing, you agree to the following terms:

Credit in Non-Web/Blog Usage: Any product/item you distribute (commercially or as a free item on your blog/site/store) must provide credit back to me. Stating “Graphics by A Hughes Design” is fine, but using my button and a clickable link to my store is even better!

Security: You must ensure that the graphics cannot be easily copied, extracted, downloaded, or shared. All products created with these graphics must be flattened into a PDF or protected in a way that does not allow for easy extraction of the graphics.  You may flatten them by turning the background into an image.

Use Within Product: Your commercial creations cannot contain just pages of graphics “as is” (like bulletin board elements) and nothing else.  They must be used in conjunction with other elements, such as backgrounds, border, text, and considered part of an activity or printable.  My art must not be the focus or the only design element.

Web Use: You may use these graphics to create blog and website components, but you MUST combine them with other elements, such as background, border, or text. You may not post the graphics “as is” in any online presence.  For blog/website uses, you must provide credit with a clickable link on each page.  This can be done in the sidebar or footer.

Alter/Redesign: You may not alter, resell, share, or distribute the graphics. They may not be combined with other digital artwork and resold as graphics/clipart (stamps, brushes, ten frames, scrapbook sets, stickers, etc.).  I’d be glad to recolor/alter an image for you.  Please see the listing in my store.

Resale: You may not use these graphics to create materials for others to resell.

Digital Products: You may create digital products (SMART board, Mimeo, Apps, etc.), but the graphics must not be the only elements and they must not be easily extractable.

Not Okay: You may not use these graphics to create commercial-use items (stationary, bulletin board elements, or products on sites such as Zazzle) where my art is the main artistic element of the product.

Purchasing does not mean you own the graphics and you may not claim them as your own.  Ashley Hughes (A Hughes Design) retains the copyright to all graphics and images.

These terms are subject to change without notice.  Please contact me if you have any questions about acceptable use or further licensing options.  Due to the digital nature of this product, no returns or refunds are available.
