Using kits for personal profit??
Hi ladies. I have been thinking for awhile of maybe making personal cards, pages, invites etc and selling them locally. I am wondering, if I purchase a kit or use a freebie am I allowed to do that? And if not do I ask permission or what is the process?

Would love to design my own and will one day, but for now I am really keen to get started on this venture but want to do it right.

Barb :)

most items you purchase or get as a freebie cannot be used for commercial use (unless otherwise stated)

Yes mc-lola is very correct in saying this, some designers offer a "commercial use" clause on their designs but this is usually at a higher cost - otherwise their creations are for "personal" use only .... I guess given the amount of time that they put into their work this is a fair enough request. Perhaps if you are in doubt you could contact the designer and ask them if they would mind - good luck with your new venture, Lisa

If you're making them layouts (books), cards, candy wrappers, for resell to someone for personal-use, you can purchase kits that allow you use them for Scrap4Hire without any additional licensing (most require you to purchase a new kit per customer). Some designers require you to purchase a commercial license. It really depends on what you plan to use the kits for.

Sometimes TOU's confuse me. No matter what they say, I tend to ask questions to the designer...just to be sure, if it is anything other than just for me.
I've been enjoying the scrap-4 hire and commercial items I've purchased, and I still ask questions.

here is a list at DigiShopTalk that a ton designer that allow S4H/S4O use.

Most freebies are not available for S4H. If you are ever in doubt I would just e-mail anyone that you interested in using their products.
