The images you buy from Falbe Publishing will be delivered as high resolution 300 dpi jpeg files. THEY WILL NOT HAVE THE FALBE PUBLISHING WATERMARK.*
Unlike some royalty free photo and image stores, there is no minimum purchase of credits here. If you only need one image, then that’s all you need to buy.
You can make payments with your Credit Card or use Paypal. I use third party payment processors and I will not have access to your financial information. Sales tax may be added for purchases made by State of Michigan residents. Otherwise there is no sales tax or VAT.
After payment you will be automatically directed to my download service Digital Delivery App that will provide you access to the image or images you purchased. Your email address will also be added to my emailing list unless you choose to opt out of the system. I will not share or sell your contact information.
Additionally you will receive a backup email message with links to your files. These links will expire in one month. If you need to access your files beyond this date, contact me and I’ll approve your request as soon as possible. This is a manual process so please give me a chance to see the email and respond. Most customers never need to do this because they download their files within a couple days. However, it’s nice to have the ability to request future downloads, especially if your computer dies, you can’t remember where you saved something, or you want to save your files to a new computer.
In the case of technical difficulties, please contact me. I’ll clear up the problem.
NO REFUNDS ON IMAGES. I’m sorry about taking this hardline but jpegs are easy for everyone to open and copy so offering refunds on this type of digital product would just invite too much abuse.
What does royalty free mean?
When you buy a royalty free stock image it means you do not need to pay me a royalty on any revenues you may earn from the products you develop with the images. Royalty free means you pay the price asked for the image and that’s the end of it. It’s yours to use.
You have a non-exclusive license to use any image obtained here in projects personal and/or commercial.
Who uses royalty free stock images?
Designers, multi media artists, and publishers of all stripes use royalty free images. Artisans who design greeting cards, post cards, T-shirts, bags, tags, collages, scrapbooks, posters, and more use them. Tattoo artists often look for interesting images to base tattoo designs on. A blogger might use them in blog posts or in a blog header or background. Web designers want them. Graphic artists want them for designing ads, business cards, brochures, and packaging. Also designers of book covers, ebook covers, and magazines need a steady supply of royalty free images for their many diverse projects.
Where do I get my images that I sell?
I scan the images from various old out-of-copyright books and vintage art prints. I routinely visit estate sales, garage sales, and auctions and always keep an eye out for interesting illustrations, fine art prints, and vintage items. A portion of these I am able to develop into royalty free images for sale.
*The watermark is necessary on the product pages so people won’t download and use the low resolution images on display here. I’ve put a lot of work into finding, scanning, and merchandising these images, and I only ask for very small prices. Watermarks are a standard practice among sellers of digital images.
