Terms of Use

Thank you for your interest in Dancing Crayon Designs.  We hope that you will enjoy using our images in your own creative projects.  Please take note of the following terms of use prior to making your purchase.  Thanks!

All images on this site are original content and have been created by Dancing Crayon Designs. 

Dancing Crayon Designs may be used for personal use, classroom use, or small business commercial use (see requirements below for commercial use).  For large commercial use, a mass production license is available.

These general terms of use apply to all our products, except our Digital Paper Photoshop Templates and our Map Clip Art collection.  

For all other clip art, please see the general terms of use below.

 

GENERAL TERMS OF USE:

 

1. PERSONAL and CLASSROOM USE:

You may use our graphics for your own personal and classroom use.  If you share any of your creations with other teachers or classes, you will need to follow the requirements set out for commercial use below.

 

2.  SMALL BUSINESS COMMERCIAL USE:

Small business commercial use is considered use of the image in 1,000 products or less.  The only noted exception to this is for teacher-sellers.  Teachers who sell products on TeachersPayTeachers, Teachers Notebook, and similar teaching sites are considered small business even if they exceed 1,000 products for the image.  For others exceeding the 1,000 product limit or needing extended use, please see section 3: Mass Production.

You may use our graphics to create and sell your own products under the following terms only:

 

 2.a.  CREDIT REQUIREMENTS:

Credit is required.   Unless you purchase a “no credit required” license, please include credit for the use of the images in your document or project.   Credit may be provided in text form or by using the 'licensed-by' image provided in the clip art package.  The following text may be used to provide credit:

Images licensed by Dancing Crayon Designs. © www.DancingCrayon.com

(Where possible, please link the above text and/or the 'licensed-by' image to www.DancingCrayon.com)

This credit may be placed on a credit page or similar in your document or on the page where the graphic is used.

 

2.c. TERMS FOR COMMERCIAL USE:

a.  You must create something of your own creation with the clipart. It may NOT be resold or shared as clip art or included in a new clip art set. 

b.  Clip art should be merged into your project so your customers are not able to extract and reuse the clipart.

c. You may not claim the artwork as your own. Copyright of our images always stays with Dancing Crayon Designs.

d.  You may not use our images (or elements of our images) to trace or otherwise create new clip art images.

 

2.d. YOUR FREE PRODUCTS:

You may use our clipart in products that you are offering as freebies, but credit is absolutely required in these products.  Our “no-credit-required” license does not cover the use or our graphics in freebies.   If you are offering a product as a freebie, or you are sharing something you have made with the clip art, you must give credit as outlined in section 2.a.   All commercial use terms apply to the products you create as freebies.

 

2.e. USE IN SMARTBOARD PROJECTS AND SIMILAR:

Teacher-sellers may use our images to create products for SmartBoard, Promethean Boards, and similar, but we do ask that you make the images as secure as is possible to avoid them being extracted and re-used as standalone clip art.  We want to make our images usable for teachers but protect our artwork at the same time.  Adding some text to the images or saving images into the background are a couple of ways to avoid re-use of the clip art.

 

2.f. USE OF OUR FREE CLIP ART AND IMAGES:

Commercial use of our free clip art is allowed under the same terms of use as our paid clip art products.

Our free clip art may NOT be uploaded and shared on other websites.  You may certainly provide a link for your customers to go to our page and download their own free image from DancingCrayon.com

 

3. MASS PRODUCTION / EXTENDED USE:

If you are planning to use an image of ours in a product that will have more than 1,000 copies or downloads, or the image will be used for large business or extended use, you must purchase the MASS COMMERCIAL LICENSE separately.  (Teacher-sellers are exempt: please see section 2.)

A license is needed for each piece of clipart you are using in mass production. Note that these licenses can be purchased in an economical bundle option.  The license does not include the image – the image must be purchased separately.

Please click here to see available license options. 

 

3.b. USE IN PRINT ON DEMAND PRODUCTS:

If you are selling products on print-on-demand websites such as CafePress, Zazzle, or similar, you will require a mass production license for each piece of clip art used.

 

3.c. USE IN APPS:

If you are creating an app to be sold or shared you will require a mass production license for each piece of clip art used.

 

4. OTHER TERMS AND CONDITIONS:

You may not copyright our artwork in any way. Copyright for all images remains with Dancing Crayon Designs.

You are responsible for having the proper software to open and use the graphics you purchase.   If you’re unsure, please try one of our freebies before making a purchase.  Due to the digital nature of our images, there are no refunds on items delivered electronically.
