Angel Policies For Stamp Companies

Ok ladies I have info regarding which stamp companies have angel policies. These are just stamps I own or have owned so I checked their policies either on their websites or by email. If you guys have other stamps not listed let me know & I'll check on them for you & post it here. This is also posted on our Facebook page.

Autumn Leaves- Our Angel policy states, If using stamps, please hand-stamp each project individually. No mechanical reproduction of any sort is allowed. No scanning, no photocopying, no printing of items for resale or use. You must use the original item. Use of our products need to be pieces that are individually hand made, sold regionally and not nationally, and not printed on a press. They can’t be mass-produced or sold nationally, but if these guidelines are followed there is no problem with cards or other items being made and sold for resale. The policy applies to limited production; local artists only. We will take legal action if we see a violation.

Bellas- Stamping Bella's rubber stamps are for personal and non-commercial use only. However, our valued customers may use our products to produce any creations they would like, which can include selling or otherwise distributing these creations in limited quantities. All commercial use of our designs is subject to the following terms and conditions: All stamp impressions must be made by hand and no mechanical or other form of reproduction is permitted. Quantities are limited to projects that are limited in scope and otherwise do not constitute an ongoing business. Additionally, quantities for commercial use are generally allowed if they are in the range of 50 or less hand stamped impressions per stamp image. The production of much larger numbers, and/or for an ongoing business, and/or for an endeavor that is not local in nature, is forbidden. Wherever possible, Stamping Bella Trademarks and Copyrights should be displayed. To use our images for this purpose, simply send or e-mail us a letter acknowledging you agree to the above terms, and include the following information:
Your name and contact information
A list of the Stamping Bella's products you plan to use
The quantities you anticipate producing
An acknowledgment that you "Agree to respect Stamping Bella's copyrights."

Hampton Art- Hampton Art is a full fledged Angel Company. This entitles the stamp owner to make projects for personal use or to sell as handmade one-of-a-kind creations. This policy applies to all Hampton designs, including those under license from various designers.

Hero Arts- The purchaser of a Hero Arts product is granted a limited license to use such product, for personal, noncommercial use only. Reproduction of Hero Arts products or images in any way for either commercial use or in an inappropriate manner is prohibited without written consent.

House Mouse- House-Mouse Designs, Inc. permits its valued customers the following limited rights of commercial use regarding it's rubber stamp images: All stamp impressions must be made by hand. No mechanical or other form of reproduction is permitted. Only limited quantities, not to exceed 100 per design, may be made for commercial use. In connection with each commercial use within these permissible limits, the user shall clearly display on the project the following: “Black line Image Art: Copyright House-Mouse Designs, Inc.” You may sell cards, or projects which include the stamped image. You may not sell just the plain black line stamped images alone that have been stamped onto paper or any other material. The above Terms and Conditions apply to the House-Mouse Designs®, HappyHoppers® and Gruffies® rubber stamps.

Rubber Stampede- Licensed images such as Cynthia Hart™, Suzy Zoo™, Ellen Blonder™, Looney Tunes™, Suzanne Nicoll™, and Kerren Barbas™ cannot be used at this time. This is strictly prohibited by their licensing trademark policies. The entire contents of the Rubber Stampede catalog and all the designs/images shown are copyrighted by Rubber Stampede, Inc. Non-licensed images may be reproduced provided that designs are hand-stamped only-no mechanical or electronic reproductions are allowed.

Scrappy Cat Designs- We have have an angel policy.You are permitted to create cards, or projects on a handmade limited basis, products can be sold at local craft fairs, churches, etc.Our images and patterns are all under copyright and are owned by Scrappy Cat so our art cannot be mechanically reproduced and sold to stores.

Stampendous- Stampendous is a full fledged Angel Company, which means our designs may be used on products for sale, as long as the images are entirely hand-stamped and not mechanically or digitally reproduced in any way. This does not apply to designs we license by other designers (i.e. Cherished Teddies, Precious Moments, etc.)

Stampabilities- You can hand make products using our rubber stamps and sell them for a profit, as long as no machine replication is used. This policy applies to all of our rubber stamps except PEANUTS®. On these lines we cannot give permission for you to use them on products you will be selling for profit. Our request for no machine replication also applies to stickers, papers, etc.
