Can I use Shutterstock, iStock or any other stock design elements?

No, all print designs should contain your own unique elements that you have created yourself, it is not acceptable to download a stock element from another site and simply put it in repeat. 

Patternbank are very, very serious about Copyright Infringement and ask all designers to use their own artwork and elements in creating your designs. If you are found to be using elements that are not permitted you will have your seller account disabled.

Do not upload designs that were not created by you, strictly no reproduction or use of copyrighted, trademarked or otherwise protected material is permitted on the Patternbank studio. Designers that break our seller T&Cs will be instantly removed from the studio.
