Our Friendly License

Hello. Don’t Panic.
THESE Terms You Will Understand!

The Short Version

Your peace of mind is our priority. Hey, we know it's important!
When you download purchased graphics from FriendlyStock.com you automatically receive our Friendly License which allows you to use our graphics for almost any commercial, editorial, charitable, personal or educational purpose.
Unlike most stock image sites out there, you may use our graphics in as many projects as you want, including those the end-users are charged for (a t-shirt or an ebook that you sell for example). You may also use our graphics to do client work for other people.
Feel free to change colors, alter characteristics, add or remove elements, and take any other action necessary to better fulfil your project’s requirements.
But you may not re-distribute, resell, give away or sub-license the graphics themselves.
No attribution is necessary but we would all do a barrel roll if you would be so kind. For real!
For a more detailed explanation of what's allowed and what is not allowed (or restricted), please scroll down and read this page.
Still in doubt after having done that? Please ask us. We will be more than happy to answer your questions!
