OUR ANGEL POLICY
You are purchasing/receiving the right (in the form of a Personal Use License) to use Red Rubber Designs paper and images/sentiments for your personal crafting use. You are NOT buying the illustration/design itself and have no other rights in association with Red Rubber Designs paper and images.
We welcome artists who’d like to use our paper and stamp images/sentiments in their own hand-stamped craftwork that they produce to sell. Therefore, we give permission in the form of a limited license to use any Red Rubber Designs paper and stamp images/sentiments for the purpose of creating craftworks for sale, under the following criteria:
What you can do with our designs:
> Make art! You can create handmade papercrafting projects (including but not limited to cards, ATCs, scrapbook layouts, mixed media, etc.) with Red Rubber Designs paper and images/sentiments and we encourage you to do so! That is why we make them available for you.
> You can sell your handmade papercrafting projects that include Red Rubber Designs paper and images/sentiments in any venue as long as…
> The projects are hand-stamped, personally and individually created by the selling artist
> The projects are not reproduced or copied in any form by any means, graphic, electronic, or mechanical, including photocopying
> The projects are not mass-produced, assembly-line constructed, produced by workers for hire, or syndicated in any way.
> You can upload projects that incorporate Red Rubber Designs paper and images to your blog and other internet venues. Red Rubber Designs encourages you to watermark your projects before uploading to any internet venue in order to help protect your work.
What you may NOT do with our designs:
> You may not sell or distribute Red Rubber Designs paper and images/sentiments, plain or colored, in either physical or digital form if they are not part of your handmade project. Only Red Rubber Designs has the legal right to sell and/or distribute our paper and images.
> This includes paper and image/sentiment swaps or paper and digi/digital image/sentiment electronic swaps, sold/distributed as part of a kit, printed out paper and hand-stamped images/sentiments, scanned paper and images/sentiments, CD paper and images/sentiments, stock paper and images/sentiments, clip art images/sentiments and prizes/give-aways. Black and white or colored line art and sentiments from Red Rubber Designs may not be sold or distributed in any manner – whether hand-stamped, digital or printed.
In other words, the Red Rubber Designs paper and images/sentiments you’ve purchased/received are for YOUR use. You do not have permission or the legal right to give (i.e., distribute) them to anyone. No commercial use is allowed.
> You may not reproduce Red Rubber Designs paper and images/sentiments in any form or manner, including derivatives. Neither may you do this and call it your own. No altering of the paper and images is allowed.

> You may not use Red Rubber Designs paper and stamp images/sentiments for making molds to reproduce the design, nor to create patterns for anything, including but not limited to rubber or acrylic stamps, embroidery, cross-stitch, stitching, jewelry, wood products, metal, tattoos, etc. and sell or distribute them in any way. This not only violates the legal copyrights of Red Rubber Designs, but of its artists as well.
> You may not store, post or PIN our un-watermarked paper and stamp images/sentiments on Pinterest or any other internet venue (including but not limited to blogs, forums, internet communities, etc.). This includes private blogs, private Pinterest boards, private forums and/or galleries, etc. Cards and other handmade projects that you’ve created using Red Rubber Designs paper and stamp images/sentiments are okay and encouraged to share on your blogs and in crafting galleries.

Please do not redistribute (emailing, sharing, copying, duplicating or reselling) any of our paper designs and images/sentiments. We always appreciate referrals to our website so that your friends and family can purchase their own copy.
We are a small, woman-owned business and this is how we make our living for our family and ourselves. When people share our paper and images that is potential income that we lose. (Plus, it’s illegal.) We appreciate your support!
