First, you will need to do at least a Google search, words and/or image, to be sure you won’t run into any copyright or trademark issues. You can also search records at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office online and the Copyright Office online. It may sound silly, but it could end up costing you a lot of time or money if your idea is infringing on someone else’s work.

3. Advanced – increasing what you offer. I have videos for each of my products, a pattern maker could include a video walkthrough too! A party supplies maker could include an “in the mail” copy so they can see what it is supposed to look like. Adding more to the digital download will increase the happiness of the person who buys your products which is super important.

None of the early appearances of the "Happy Birthday to You" lyrics included credits or copyright notices. The Summy Company registered a copyright in 1935, crediting authors Preston Ware Orem and Mrs. R. R. Forman. In 1988, Warner/Chappell Music purchased the company owning the copyright for US$25 million, with the value of "Happy Birthday" estimated at US$5 million.[10][11] Based on the 1935 copyright registration, Warner claimed that the United States copyright will not expire until 2030, and that unauthorized public performances of the song are illegal unless royalties are paid to Warner. In one specific instance in February 2010, the royalty for a single use was said to be US$700.[12] By one estimate, the song is the highest-earning single song in history.[13] In the European Union, the copyright for the song expired on January 1, 2017.[14]

Silhouette knocked it out of the park with this sophisticated feature.  This tool  enables you to warp your text in the preselected shapes shown or as the picture shows– it places a grid and small handles on the text.  With the object selected you can basically “warp” or manipulate the text as you wish.  This feature is great for SVG designers.  This feature is standard in the Adobe Software Suite ( Photoshop, Illustrator)  so this feature gets a 5 star rating from me.
I took off my "printable-creator" hat and put on my "printable-marketing" hat. :) What I found was that marketing demanded as much creativity as actually creating a product, especially when you're marketing on Pinterest. My whole strategy was VERY simple and EXTREMELY effective - I set a goal to create at least one tall graphic every day presenting my Life Binder product. You might be wondering how I was able to keep coming up with ideas. Well, one cool idea I had was to take each page of the Life Binder and create a whole pinnable graphic around that one page. That alone gave me 27 pins to create. 

Angie, where have you been all my (design) life?! Thank you so so much for doing all of this work and for sharing it with us. Wow. Absolutely incredible collection. Tell me, please, if I want to use a printout of something here as a background image in a mixed media piece, what is the cost? (I am working on a painting series, and one will be donated to an auction for charity; the others may be placed for sale at some point.) Thank you again!
Hi Haley! I love these prints! Only thing is, I would like to enlarge them a bit for my bathroom. Every time I try to enlarge them, they come out pixelated. I know that posting larger files would take up space on your site, but is there any chance you can get me access to a larger size? I don’t need all of the prints, I can specify which ones I’m looking for… I’d really, really appreciate your help! Thanks so much, and thanks for these cute/hilarious prints!
Numbers nerd. Guilty. I have always completely geeked out when working in Excel and creating spreadsheets that provide the information I need quickly and easily. I hate wasting my time in activities that do not add value and focus my efforts on being efficient as possible. My desire is to help others do the same! The files I create are tailored to the spreadsheet novice and do all the calculating for you. They are also always formatting to print out just right in case you need a hard copy.
