Thank you for choosing to work with Laura Thompson Designs. Here's the formal bit!
These terms and conditions are regarding the purchase of a single colour-way of a design from the 'ltd Library' service, you are referred to as 'the client' here within.
On purchase of a design the client will:
Receive a .JPEG file at 300 dpi in a 20cm (unless otherwise stated) square seamless repeat tile in RGB colour mode.
Hold the license to be permitted to exclusively produce this colour-way of design on the one chosen product type which will be agreed to by Laura Thompson Designs or multiple product types if arranged (Additional fees will apply), for reproduction on unlimited units, for a 3 year period.
Not own the copyright of the design. The copyright is withheld at all times by Laura Thompson Designs.
Not be permitted to sub-license the design to any third party.
Not be permitted to amend, change or edit the design in anyway unless permission has been granted by Laura Thompson Designs.
On purchase of a design Laura Thompson Designs will:
Make unavailable the purchased colour-way of the design from the online Ltd Library.
Ensure privacy is kept about the purchase and intentions of the client and their business until a date at which the product emerges publicly and it is appropriate to promote by either party.
Not offer that colour-way in the design to any other clients during the agreement.
Withhold the right to use the design or any elements or motifs contained within the design for any product, within any category within the 'Laura Thompson Designs' brand at any time.
Contact the client when the license is due to end to discuss whether the client wishes to renew the agreement.
If not renewed, once the license agreement ends, the design will again become available in the ltd Library and offered to other clients. Laura Thompson Designs accepts that there will be remaining units that the client will hold, but asks the client to cease further reproduction. New clients who are interested in licensing a design which has previously been in the market will be informed of such before purchase.
Once payment is received, designs are non refundable. Laura Thompson Designs reserves the right to end this agreement if the terms and conditions are not met by the client or take legal action if the design(s) are produced outside the agreement or in a way not agreed to within the purchase.
COLOUR AND PRINTING
Please note that the colours in the designs seen on screen are likely to be considerably different to when the design is applied to or printed on your intended product or if printed onto fabric. This is due to differing screen colour outputs and resolutions, the differences in RGB versus CMYK colour printing, the type of surface that the design will be applied to and the manufacturing technique.
Laura Thompson Designs always advises that pre-production samples are obtained and checked by the client before full production takes place. Laura Thompson Designs can take no responsibility for differing colours as a result of the printing process or mistakes by the manufacturer. Please do get in touch if you require your purchased design to be converted into another colour profile which may be advised by your print manufacturer. I am very happy to do this free of charge.
The purchase of a design includes reproduction onto ONE product type chosen by the client and agreed upon by Laura Thompson Designs, examples of permitted design applications are below, however applications of the pattern to product not listed will be considered, please enquire. If you require multiple product applications please contact Laura Thompson Designs to discuss:
Fabric for Apparel/Clothing

Plus any other uses discussed and accepted by Laura Thompson Designs prior to the purchase.
Fees are listed with each design individually and is calculated depending on how many colour-ways are available in the design and its uniqueness or complexity. Payment of fees are required up front before the artwork is supplied.
The client may wish to purchase more than one or all available colour-ways in a single design to gain full exclusivity, and/or purchase additional product application allowances. Discounts are available as explained below.
20% off any additional colour-ways of the same design purchased at any time, including after the original purchase. For example, you may trial the design on your product and find it to be a good seller, and decide to bring out an additional colour option for your customers.
Additional product application types are also offered at a reduced rate. If you would like to apply the design to more than one product or an additional product at a later date; fees and discounts will be calculated based on your requirements, please get in touch to discuss and I will formulate a quotation.
As many clients shop for pattern design for particular seasons of the year to launch in collections, often clients are working to colour stories and wish their ranges to look cohesive.
With this in mind Laura Thompson Designs would like to offer a free of charge colour amendment service to clients who purchase 5 or more designs from the Ltd Library collection in one transaction.
I can work to a colour palette supplied or use one of the designs as the hero and tweak the others to complement. Simply email to discuss your needs.
I look forward to working with you, Laura. x
