  • it pays to ask

    I have had an order from a forum member for a card and a theme of boxer dogs was requested
    we try and avoid the copyright issue as it worries us so I found a clip art picture that I liked on an embroidery website
    I contacted the people and asked if I could use the image for a one off card
    they came back to me the same day and said I could purchase some of the images on a cd
    I wrote back to them explaining that it really would be a one off and that I was happy to put on the back of the card where the image came from and they replied saying that was fine and when the card is finished they would like to see a photo and possibly think about putting a picture on their website as a bit of free advertising for us and show customers another way to use the artwork
    I did this a while ago when I was looking for flower pictures and this is what this lady did for us which was really kind

      Looks like there's an offer of collaboration there as well. Might be worth following up to give you another outlet?

                  that's great! businesses helping each other is really for both of you!
                  well done!
                  I believe they really appreciated you asked them to use the pictures.
                  No many would bother.
