It's our birthday and we have something for YOU! Free styled stock images!

It's our birthday and we have something for YOU! Free styled stock images!

Once upon a time in the far-away land of Etsy a little styled stock shop was born as the very first of its kind...

It was November of 2013 and (if her mother were being honest) she would say that she didn't expect her to grow to amount to very much.

Now before you get confused about why we are celebrating a November birthday on June 1st let me finish the story. That little stock shop proved even her mother wrong and grew to be an almost overnight sensation, outgrowing her Etsy home within three years and desperately needing to spread her wings and fly (this analogy is getting weirder by the minute).

On June 1st, one year ago today, the SC Stockshop got her own beautiful little corner of the internet and today we are celebrating the one year birthday of that new home!

We have everything that we could have ever hoped for as a small creative business and so today, on our 1 year new shop birthday, we want to give YOU something amazing in return!

Can’t express how excited I am to have found you! I’m starting to work on a lifestyle blog for grandparents (tailored to those like me who at least think they’re contemporary in spirit). In developing concept for “Modern Grands”, I’m focused on it being fun, informative, inspirational and… beautiful. That’s where your styled images come in. So so lovely. While I’m wishing your awesome venture a very Happy Birthday, it seems like it’s me getting presents!!

Thanks for sharing such beautiful photos with us. I’m looking at rebranding my social media and emails so getting help would be wonderful at this present time. If I win I would love your advice as my favourite colours are fushia pink and turquoise, but it doesn’t quite reflect the theme of my website, does it actually matter?! Claire

Happy 1-Year-New-Online-Shop-Birthday Shay!!! Congrats on your continued success :) And thank you for hosting this awesome contest!

If I won, I would definitely choose a variety from the Styled Party Images: Confetti, Champagne, & Party Time Desk Collections.
Some Floral Flat Lays (white/marble background only), and some Styled Food Collection, eg. Citrus #02, Cherries #01, Strawberries in Carton. These would ALL wonderfully compliment the Cake & Cupcake toppers I’ve been selling lately!
Lastly, I would choose a few Frames to help show off the popular custom Family Tree Papercuts I also offer on my Etsy shop.

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!
