How to use smart objects to add your designs to stationery styled stock: An SC tutorial with Simply Jessica Marie

If you have taken a peek at the new MaeMae x SC Stationery Styled Stock Collection then you've probably noticed that with every image set you receive three total files. 

In your set you'll receive one image with invitation paper styled in, one image with no paper and negative space, as well as a psd file containing smart objects for easy design insertion over top of the stationery.

A few of you have asked what these smart object files are all about so we turned to our best stationery gal, Simply Jessica Marie, for a demonstration on how to use the new smart objects option!

Take a peek at her quick tutorial (seriously, it took her five minutes to create the above image!) and then grab your very own Stationery Collection images and give it a try for yourself!      

We cannot wait to see your stunning work displayed on these images and we know you'll fall in love with how quick and easy it is to use these files!

xoxo,
The SC Team

THE SERIOUS LEGAL STUFF

With this transaction Buyer acknowledges that the purchase comes with a non-exclusive limited use license so that the Purchaser may use the image for personal or professional use in the normal course of Purchaser's business.

Purchaser may crop the image and overlay the image with text or pdfs of product designs as fits Purchaser's needs, but Purchaser may not otherwise alter, edit or manipulate the image.

Shay Cochrane remains the sole and exclusive owner and holder of the copyright in the image and the Purchaser may not sell, lease, loan, transfer, assign, or give away the image or a derivative thereof or otherwise allow a third-party to use the image in any way.

The Purchaser may not use SC Stockshop images to promote styling related workshops, webinars, classes, how-to-style blog posts or newsletters, or any styling related training.

NOW, IN PLAIN ENGLISH

These images have been designed to become a part of your branding just like a logo or font choice.

As an entrepreneur yourself, you know how frustrating and discouraging it can be when people misuse, steal, giveaway or alter your work. With that in mind, please don't change the colors or move the props around - it just doesn't look as good (and infringes on the usage terms)!  

Feel free to crop the image any way that you want and overlay it with text or designs to help you to promote your brand and sell more products!  

By purchasing the image you are agreeing not to give the image (or a part of the image) away to anyone else in ANY way even if you turned it into a beautiful free e-book cover, or snazzy desktop screen savor.

It would also be just plain wrong to re-sell the image in any form such as turning it into an art print or including it in a website or other template design.  

Lastly, using an SC Stockshop image to sell your styling course, webinar or other styling related training is sort of false advertising. Show them the styling that YOU have done so that they know exactly what they are in for and can get excited!  This is not meant to scare you.  

If you have any questions or concerns about the legal use of our images please don't hesitate to shoot us an e-mail! We don't bite!
