What Are Pre-Approved Licensing Types?

This site serves two basic types of art-licensing customers: Those offering wall-decor products and those offering other product types (such as puzzles and cups).

Artists can pre-approve individual images for wall decor use, product use, or both. Almost all our images are pre-approved for wall-decor use, with a smaller (but still large, and growing) selection pre-approved for product use.

Item licensing permissions aren’t set in stone — that’s why we’re calling them pre-approvals. If you’re a product manufacturer and spot the perfect image that’s not pre-approved for product use, please contact us! Very often it’s just a matter of us contacting the artist for new approvals.
