Little Red’s Clip Art – Terms of Use

Little Red’s Clip Art sets are available for personal, educational, and small-business use.
The purchase of our clip art sets does not grant the buyer any copyrights – the content remains the intellectual property of the creator/Little Red’s Schoolhouse.

With purchase, the individual purchaser is granted a limited commercial license: you are free to use the images for small-scale commercial projects – things which one would call ‘homemade’/’handmade’. Nothing mass-produced/manufactured including manufacture by on-demand printing services such as Zazzle/Spoonflower/Cafe Press, etc. unless strictly for personal use.

With commercial use and when creating products/freebies for mass distribution, credit to the owner (either Little Red’s Clip Art or Little Red’s Schoolhouse) is required on the product itself. In the case of jewellery and other small items, credit can be included on the packaging or within the product description at the point of sale.

  • The graphics are not to be sold as-is (ie, as collage sheet, clip art, reformatted into a pattern of any sort, etc.), resold, copied and claimed as your own, altered and claimed as original, nor used to create derivative works which would infringe on intellectual copyrights.

  • The digital files are not to be resold, distributed, gifted, shared, or traded.
    They are for the use of the individual, original downloader only.

    Use of the Graphics (Personal Use)
    As long as your project is not commercial or to be distributed en mass, you are basically free to use the clip art designs as you wish! *The only personal use which requires credit to be displayed is when graphics are used on a website/blog.

    Use of the Graphics (Commercial/Public Display/Mass Distribution Use)
    The graphics must be used as part of a larger project/design.
    When making digital items the graphics must be protected from extraction by third parties. This may mean locking your pdfs or flattening your artwork before distributing it as a digital file.

    Here are a few examples of which commercial uses of the graphics are permissible and not permissible. This is by no means a comprehensive list – if the particular commercial use you have in mind is not listed and you have doubts as to whether it would be OK, please feel free to contact us!
