A Letter to Our Customers

A Letter to Our Customers

To Our Loyal Customers,


We’ve been recently made aware of this article covering the events surrounding a template company and the striking similarities between their products and many other graphic design and/or photography resource companies, including Design Aglow.

We are a small company that works tirelessly to help creatives make their businesses thrive, stay in touch with the current trends, keep multiple full-time professional designers and writers on staff, and put an incredible amount of effort into designing original content for our clients.

The fact that a company directly targets other businesses within the industry as source material is offensive to creatives and photographers alike.

And the creative community should be offended by this. We have stayed quiet for several years because we did not want to stir the pot or burden our customers with legal concerns, but we cannot stand by and stay silent anymore, as it’s doing a disservice to our industry.

As a company who has been copied and stolen from time and time again, we are glad that someone is finally calling attention to this issue publicly. In fact, we go to great lengths to copyright our products. Whenever a Design Aglow product is stolen we immediately send a DMCA to protect the original content that we worked so hard on. The company takes the imitation product down, apologizes, only to do it again, and again, and again. How many times can a company act so disgracefully and dishonestly before we (creatives) no longer allow it to happen? It devalues our craft and gives fellow creatives an unrealistic idea of what this industry is.

We encourage you to share this. Help be the voice that stops others from making profit off of other creative’s hard work. It’s unfortunate that it has gone unnoticed and overlooked for this long and we believe that it’s time for it to stop. We feel that if it doesn’t end soon it may only get worse.

We greatly appreciate the continued support of every one of you. Without you and your commitment to quality, integrity, and innovation our company would not exist.

All the best,
Design Aglow
