Of course we all play well together around here.  But living in the western world requires certain legalities to be out in the open.  So here are the policies and procedures for Ballyhoo Creations.

This is the licensing you agreed to when acquiring the embroidery files of PDF patterns purchased on this site. This agreement is legally binding. All embroidery design files and digital patterns are Copyright Ballyhoo Creations 2021. By downloading these digital products you agree to the following:

  1. All embroidery design files and digital patterns are Copyright © Ballyhoo Creations. These files can NOT be reproduced or distributed without the written permission of Ballyhoo Creations. This includes digital embroidery files, PDF documents, photos/ videos, or any written text or diagrams.

  2. These files are licensed to you as an INDIVIDUAL and cannot be used by a group of people unless each person purchases their own license and files.

  3. You CAN (and I hope you do!) embroider or sew projects with these files and sell those finished projects (a doll, an embroidered shirt, you get the idea!) This is the Ballyhoo way of promoting small handmade businesses in the creative arts. You may sell your finished projects at places like craft fairs, Etsy, your website, or brick-and-mortar stores. Mass commercial production by a factory is not allowed.

  4. You (the customer) MAY NOT share, loan, rent, or sell these Ballyhoo digital files with anyone, even if you obtained it for free. 

  5. If you downloaded these files from a website allowing unlimited commercial use, please understand that commercial usage applies to YOUR finished physical projects, not the digital files themselves. Refer to the Terms of Service of the site you purchased from for full details.  (This is regarding Creative Fabrica and their commercial use license)

  6. You CAN make a backup copy for your own file security (to protect against a hard drive crash, accidental delete, etc.)

  7. You should download your files within ONE month of purchase and store them in a safe place.  Although Ballyhoo Creations may store your purchases so you may download them again in the future, there is NO guarantee this amenity will always be available.  We only guarantee downloads for one month after your purchase.

  8. Of course, you CAN stitch projects for yourself or others. This includes gifts and charity donations.

  9. You MAY NOT modify any part of Ballyhoo designs with the intent to distribute. This means you may not sell, trade or share your own version of Ballyhoo artwork as embroidery files, graphic design files, files used in electronic cutting machines, or any other sort of digital file in future technology.

  10. You ARE allowed to create or modify your own digital files for personal use, such as a digital cutting file to accompany an embroidery design or add text to one of Ballyhoo’s designs for your own use with your embroidery software.

  11.  REFUNDS are not given on digital download files.  This is the industry standard for digital downloads.  But rules have exceptions.  If you feel you are owed a refund or credit due to duplicate orders OR files that will not work (photo evidence may be required along with some cooperative troubleshooting), then please contact Ballyhoo Creations on the “contact” page to see if we can work something out.  Customer satisfaction is HUGE at Ballyhoo Creations.

  12. During the checkout process, you are required to check a box agreeing to these licensing terms BEFORE paying for the designs and patterns on this website, or joining as a member.  Therefore this agreement is legally binding.  These terms are also included in your downloaded package of files.
