It can be difficult finding designs to use without possibly breaching copyright and risking trouble etc, and if you do not have either the software or the know-how to design your own accurate Celtic knot work, then it can be doubly difficult.
So, having given it some thought, and some requests for my work from social media, it is with pleasure that I can announce today that I will be offering downloads of some of my pyrography and art designs from next week.
I’ve been in graphic design for years, and never really thought about doing designs like this, so when a few people contacted me about using my designs on their own pieces, I began thinking ‘Why not?’…Here’s what I’m planning:
Each of the designs is completed from scratch in Adobe Illustrator using a complex set of design guides depending on the shape of the final design. The most useful guides will be left in place for your reference, complete with my details for licensing and contact reasons, if you need them.
Also, where I have completed the design on an actual piece, a simple thumbnail will be included for you.
For most designs, the easiest format for me to make available for download is as an A4 .pdf. This makes things simple for you to upsize or downsize the design to suit the piece you are working on.
If a design is more complicated, like a box, for example, the pdf will be sized correctly and the dimensions of the box given in the description and on the pdf, too.
FREE Exclusive Monthly Designs and Discount Codes, Direct to Your Inbox!
That’s right…some of the designs will be exclusive and completely free (for a time) for personal use for those who subscribe to the mailing list…plus, you’ll also receive notifications of when new designs are available for you AND monthly discount codes. The list will be only for pyrographers and artists and will not include any of my wood turning items…just the stuff you like to burn!
Licensing and Pricing
There will be two types of download available for purchase: Personal and Commercial.
Personal licenses will be available for a small nominal fee and permits use on items you wish to make for yourself or gifts for friends and family.
Commercial Licenses will be charged at a higher rate and permits use on items you wish to sell as part of your own business or craft sales.
I should have a fair few designs up and available soon, plus the mailing list with exclusive designs up and running in the next few days.
Thanks for reading!
