When purchasing a product, you are agreeing to these terms:
• I am aware this product is a digital download and that no physical product will be shipped to me.
• I understand the items I am purchasing are templates, and I have the necessary software and skills to use them.
• I understand that Design Aglow does not print the product(s) I am purchasing and that I am responsible for using a printing lab and providing product specs (sizing, color profiles, quantities, etc.)
• I understand text templates do not contain font files and that I may have to download and install them separately.
• I am not a template designer and do not offer or work for a company who offers similar products to Design Aglow.
• I agree not to transfer, resell, or share this product in any way except as designated by the Copyright Information.
• I have checked my order for errors and I understand all sales are final and that refunds and exchanges are not available.
Can I use the photos of products on your site or blog on my website/marketing materials/catalog?
Unfortunately, you can not use our product photos on your own materials. Because our product photos contain copyrighted images that are the property of the photographers that created them, anyone claiming them as their own will be in violation of those copyrights. One exception is for stock photos that come as a part of your digital download. If there is a photo embedded in a template you have purchased from us, it is perfectly fine for you to use it in your studio’s materials.
You include text on some of your marketing and sales products. Is it okay to use this text as-is or, do I need to come up with my own text?
You are welcome to use any of the stock text that comes on any of our products, including holiday cards, baby announcements, sales and marketing materials, and albums, and are not required to change it. However, we highly recommend that you do change the text to reflect your own personal style and point-of-view. Remember that the templates are only a starting point to get you on your way to better sales and a more successful studio. Try to put your own personality into the words. Clients LOVE that!
How may I use your digital templates?
Our templates are licensed for one purpose only: for professional photographers to use to enhance their own images and to sell at retail to their own studio’s clients. There is one exception to this rule, and that is the use by the photographer that has purchased the templates for their own personal items.
I have a website/retail store selling cards/canvases/wedding invitations. Can I buy your templates and then turn them into products to sell to my customers?
This use of the templates is not permitted. Each of our products is individually copyrighted and you may not use the designs, in whole or in part, to create products for sale outside the scope of the licensing above.
When you buy one of our templates/actions/marketing materials or any other product in the shop, you are not buying the copyright to the product, but are buying the right to use the product in a certain way. This is commonly called “licensing” a product. Design Aglow still owns the copyright to the design and all text in our products, and are licensing the use of that copyright to you for a fee. Because you are not purchasing the copyright to the items you download, you may not use them in any way that is not expressly permitted. For example, you may not copy, loan, give away, or sell the product to someone else, because the copyright remains the property of the creator (Design Aglow) and can only be copied, loaned, given away, or sold by the owner.
You may make a copy of a product provided that you personally own all of the computers to which it is copied. For example, in your studio you have two computers. One for you, and one for your assistant/studio manager. It is fine to have a copy of any product you buy on each computer because you are the owner of both machines. However, it is not permitted, for example, to copy the files to a friend, who is also a professional photographer because you do not own the computer to which the files are being copied.
May I use a digital element from one of your templates for my logo/website/blog?
Generally, this would not be allowed for most of our products. However, certain products in our shop are licensed for use on logos, websites, blogs, and much more. You will need to check the “Product Details” on the item’s store page to find out which uses are appropriate. If you are still uncertain after consulting the product’s store page please don’t hesitate to drop us a line at the “Contact” link above.
I am a graphic designer. May I use your products to create designs for my clients?
Our designs are available for photographers only and may not be used in assignments by graphic designers. Additionally, we cannot offer our products to template designers or those who own or work for a company who offers similar products to Design Aglow.
I saw a product that looks just like one of yours on another site! Do you have a resale program?
No. But we do have a zero tolerance policy for theft of our products and intellectual property. Please email us here and know we will respect your privacy 100%. Since 2006 Design Aglow has legally enforced our rights on numerous occasions and are extremely prepared to handle any legal issue that may arise in regard to plagiarism, theft, and copyright infringement.
Why don’t you include the fonts that you use to design the templates? Aren’t those part of the design?
The fonts we use in our designs are usually standard system fonts you already have on your computer or freeware or shareware fonts available for free online. We cannot include the fonts in your download because they are protected under copyright. However you can download them directly from their creators. We find that if you type in the name of the font into your favorite search engine you will come up with several download sources.
