Great Dane Graphics
Please read all of the
rules for using the free graphics ***BEFORE*** you download them
IMPORTANT NOTICE: All product images
& sample images of artwork available for sale on products at Danes-R-Us or at Danes-R-Us Duds are off limits
- Leave them alone
Many people are currently using my product images and sample artwork as web graphics - this is a no no - Only Danes-R-Us has the RIGHT to copy and
or display these images thus the term COPYRIGHT
GRAPHICS STATED AS FREE GRAPHICS CAN BE USED.
TO TRY AND MAKE THIS EASIER FOR YOU - IF THERE ISN'T A "DANES-R-US FREE GRAPHICS" BACKGROUND
ON THE PAGE THEN IT AIN'T FOR YOU TO USE.
See a sample of the background here
I hate to look like I'm
hollering but the information seems to be getting overlooked otherwise.
The whole point of offering free graphics is to
get those who use them to give credit by displaying the name Danes-R-Us or
danesrus.com where the graphics are used
so that others can find their way to this site to enjoy what is
offered... whether it be free things or for sale things. This site is my
bread and butter - you know - pay the bills, making money, it's my
business - not a toy or a game. The free graphics are a form of
advertising for me and this site. You get to use them FREE in exchange
for ADVERTISING where you got them. Displaying the images without proper
credit means people do not even have a chance to make their way to this
site - not a very fair exchange. The images that are directly tied to an
item I offer for sale are not to be used as site decorations or in other ways.
These are considered to be my product images or sample artworks to show what
artwork will be on the purchased product. Some of these images have already been
found with my markings edited out and offered for sale by others. To minimize
this no product images may be used. If I find them in use a copyright notice
will be sent to the site owners and their hosting providers. I For all those who have abided by the
rules, thank you - to those who have not, you ruin it for those that do.
