DO YOU ACCEPT REFUNDS?

WHAT IS LICENSING?

Licensing grants usage of artwork from its creator to another person or entity under specific usage terms such as duration, exclusivity, and/or specific products allowed. 

Licensing allows businesses to save time and money by using artwork created by an independent artist or agency such as Plumager®.

 

WHAT TYPES OF LICENSES DO YOU OFFER?

Most of our digital downloads come with an unlimited exclusive license. This license is sold only once, to one customer and then it is removed from our library and never sold again. The purchaser has the sole rights to use it.

Some of our basic prints are sold with a Non-Exclusive license. They are sold a number of times to a number of different customers. We offer our more basic patterns, such as stripes and plaids, with non-exclusive license to be able to offer them at a lower price point. A quick change to color or scale and you will have a fresh, new look!

 

DO I OWN THE COPYRIGHT TO ARTWORK I LICENSE FROM PLUMAGER®?

Plumager®, Inc. retains copyright ownership to all artwork. We do offer an unlimited exclusive license, which grants almost all the same rights as copyright assignment. 

 

WHAT DOES THE NAME PLUMAGER® MEAN? 

Plumage is defined as

1. The covering of feathers on a bird collectively. 

2. Feathers used ornamentally. 

3. Elaborate dress; finery.

Thus, "Plumager" is one who creates the fine and elaborate ornamental covering; a surface designer!
