We make images designed for printing, not for web (image files). That is at the core of what we do, and why I started drawing and making clipart. 

In a Nutshell

You can use my clipart to make your own secured teacher-resource document files (pages to read or print) - e.g. pdf file. 

Credit MUST be given within the file "Graphics by Graphics From the Pond - http://frompond.blogspot.com".

DO NOT redistribute any of our digital downloads on any groups or otherwise, even if they were given to you by us as a freebie.


Our graphics and fonts are NOT to be sold or transferred as is. That means, you are not able to sell or give them away as graphics files as I have done. You have to use them in a project or product somehow. 

They cannot be distributed or displayed as is, or as part of a new image file. 

You can use them within a document (a document is a collection of pages, that you open as a pdf file and read/print etc). 
Purchasing the item does not transfer the copyright to you.  It means you cannot claim the design as your own design.
This license is non-transferable. This means you cannot transfer/ give the license to anyone else, nor can you change the item that it applies to.
You are able to use these graphics for any personal use in your classroom or home. This means it is viewed only by you and not online in any capacity. 

You can use them commercially (in document files) that you sell or share ('freebies') provided you ensure that the images cannot be easily copied, extracted, downloaded or shared.

Please use our graphics to complement your own work, do not just make files of our images and nothing else.
YOU MUST credit us somewhere in your teaching document, or on your product these exact words:

Use on Blogs

My images cannot be used on blogs, websites, Facebook, Pinterest or any other online site. You cannot create images, with my images, to be displayed online. The exception is a modest amount of thumbnails of exact pages of your document file to be used to showcase your product (e.g. product thumbnail). 


You may have used them under ToU current before 2015. If you are concerned, please email me and we will discuss. 

Image Files

You do not have permission to use our graphics as a logo, part of a logo, or on blog/pinterest/social media/advertising image files (known as buttons, signs, badges, memes, etc). 

They are IMAGE FILES. My clipart has ALWAYS been for DOCUMENTS that have room for the REQUIRED credit to be given. 

One exception to this term, is for a 'product thumb'. This is a small image file of your exact product cover, where my images may have been used. This can be used to advertise your document on sites such as TeacherspayTeachers, your blog, or on social media. 


Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions – email admin@fromthepond.com.au


These terms are current as at July 2015.
