About

Printable Scrapbook Paper and Digital Paper for Every Occasion

Every piece of art has a story and every resource used to create that art has a story. As the founder of PaperElement, my passion is for crafting not only final works of art and printable designs for creative people like you, but original graphic design resources that you can use to create your own art—we offer you the building blocks as well as the building itself!

The photo above shows just a few steps in what is a long journey to a final piece of work, which itself is just one piece of an entire set of works released under one theme. Not only do we offer you the finished designs; we offer some of the very same tools we used to create them!

Whether you're searching for finished, printable scrapbook paper; one-of-a-kind digital paper; or for something you can transform into your own artistic creations, odds are we have something you will love.

We are always expanding our offerings and release only high-quality goods that we would purchase and use ourselves. Our shop policies, license agreement, credits and FAQ may be seen at: https://sites.google.com/site/paperelementonetsy/ — as well as in the Shop Policies tab on Etsy.

Shop policies

Last updated on October 2, 2017
Thanks for choosing to shop with us! Our digital products are approved for commercial usage and as part of merchandise for sale; read the full license terms further down this page.

Etsy now collects and remits VAT (value-added tax) on our behalf for those residing in the EU. This is beyond our control and based on the laws of your country.

Almost all of our digital papers are 3600 x 3600 pixels, which is 12 x 12" (305mm) when printed at 300 DPI—the standard size of scrapbook paper you purchase at craft stores.

If you have questions that are not answered in our FAQ, send us a message on Etsy and we will gladly answer them.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
I don't accept returns, exchanges, or cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
Due to the nature of digital download products, refunds can only be given in the event of an unfixable error, false description or representation of the product on our part, or if you accidentally re-purchase a product you have previously purchased.

We will also refund your purchase in the event that you misunderstood it to be a physical product that would be shipped to you, provided you have not downloaded any of our files from Etsy. We are reasonable and, as there are exceptions to everything, will make exceptions in extraordinary circumstances.
Payment
We accept Paypal, Etsy Direct Checkout and Etsy Gift Cards. Paypal is now integrated into the Etsy checkout process, so you don't need to go to a separate website to pay. Essentially, we accept all forms of payment Etsy allows.
Shipping
We sell instantly downloadable, digital products only. They will all be immediately available for you to download after purchase provided Etsy does not place any holds on your payment (this is rare but typically resolves quickly). No paper or other items will be physically shipped to you.

The files and instructions for downloading and using your files will be displayed on the page after successfully checking out. All files are delivered in .ZIP file containers for size compression purposes, as Etsy currently has a limit of 100 MB for each product.
Additional policies and FAQs
----------------------------------
Summary of Your Rights:
----------------------------------

For personal use, our policies are very simple:

[Personal Use] - Can use our products in all personal creative projects that are not business-related, so long as they are not sold or profited from, and so long as our product files are not distributed to others. That's it!

For [Commercial Use], please read the full Standard License Agreement below.

----------------------------------------
Standard License Agreement:
----------------------------------------

By purchasing and downloading any of our products, you accept the terms of the following license agreement:

Purchasing one of our products at its standard price without purchasing an additional extended license grants you a non-transferable, non-exclusive, individual license for personal and commercial use of that particular product under the following terms and conditions:

• The standard license does not include mass production rights (300+ productions of the same piece of merchandise using one of our designs); you will need to contact us for an extended license tailored to your business if you wish to mass produce merchandise with our products.

• You may not claim the product or designs within as your own. You may not claim you created them.

• You may not resell our products or designs as DIGITAL: "printable" paper, collage sheets, clipart / clip art, or as part of any scrapbooking kit or as scrapbooking paper—modified or unmodified; you may not sell them as part of a supply or resource for other graphic designers, such as textures, fonts, layer styles, brushes or patterns—modified or unmodified.

• You may not sell our designs as part of any product on any print on demand (POD) service such as, but not limited to, Zazzle or CafePress—modified or unmodified—***unless you contact us for an extended license that will allow you to do so.***

• You may not resell our designs as-is or in a superficially altered state; significant modifications of your own or creative additions/alterations must be made to sell goods containing our designs. Personalization or customization for a specific client, such as custom invitations or photography, will almost always satisfy these requirements; otherwise, this means our designs should be incorporated into your own product as a supporting element that makes up less than 50% of the final design before being sold. Color changes or hue shifts alone are not enough to comply with this rule. ***You may contact us for an extended license that allows exceptions to this rule.***

(The above policy does not apply if you aren't selling a product with our designs in it. This means you are free to use them however you want in branding, advertising, packaging, logos, website backgrounds, banners, business cards etc. if it is for your own business or personal needs.)

• You may not make this product or its files available to others by redistributing or repackaging it as a part of any clipart / clip art pack, scrapbooking kit, freebie, texture, brush set, layer style, font, or collection of these things that can be accessed by others, whether physically or digitally, for free or for profit. This includes no resale as physical scrapbooking paper and no uploading product files to the unrestricted internet. ***If you wish to sell our designs as physical scrapbooking paper, you will need to contact us to work out a license deal that allows such.***

• You may not commercially use this product in conjunction with other copyrighted work or intellectual property unless you also have a license and permission to use that work in such a manner. Examples include, but aren't limited to: popular cartoon characters, film characters or video game imagery.

• If selling digital goods containing our products, our files must not remain on separate layers where they may be extracted as-is by customers, and should be flattened, merged and otherwise joined with your own work before sale. This means if you sell digital files that include templates of any kind, you cannot leave our designs on a separate layer.

You MAY use our products in your own personal and commercial creations in accordance with the above terms. This includes physical and digital: scrapbooking, invitations, greeting cards, brochures, flyers, websites, banners, business cards, in printed media, branding, advertising, logos, packaging, in or on customized and personalized goods, as designs in or on tangible and digital goods for sale, and so on.

If in doubt about whether a specific commercial use complies with our policies, send us a message on Etsy at paperelement.etsy.com and we will clear it up for you or offer you an extended license that allows it. Generally, if you are putting your own work, creativity and/or effort into the new merchandise you are creating with our products, it will be okay; on the other hand, if you are simply printing our designs exactly as you bought them onto something and adding/changing nothing else, it may not be acceptable and you may need to purchase a special license from us for the use to be allowed. It's best to check with us in these cases.

If you breach any terms of this policy, we may revoke any and all of your rights to use our products commercially, at our sole discretion.

In the event these license terms differ from older versions found in the readme.txt files contained in your downloads, these terms always take priority and supersede those terms. These terms are the most up-to-date and binding.

If any of the terms or clauses in this agreement were found to be non-legal, non-binding or non-enforceable, the rest of the terms and clauses still apply.

Paper Element retains all copyrights to our original designs and files. No ownership of intellectual property is sold or transferred from us.

--------------------

We do not support or endorse the use of our products in any kind of propaganda or advertising that promotes violence or is political, sexist, racist, homophobic, transphobic, xenophobic, anti-ethnic, anti-national, anti-cultural or otherwise hateful or harmful in nature. We request that you do not use our products in this manner.

Frequently asked questions

How do I apply your coupon codes?

Our coupon codes work by applying a discount to your order total. The codes are BUY2GET1 - BUY5GET3 - BUY10GET10

First, ensure you have both the paid and free items in your cart at the same time, then look for blue text on the checkout page that says "Apply Shop Coupon Code" and click it. A box will appear; enter the correct code from above and a discount will be applied to your shopping cart.

What is digital paper?

Digital paper is a printable design, or set of designs, that you receive as digital files that have not yet been printed. Digital "printable" paper typically comes as a set of .JPG files that can easily be printed on any operating system using pretty much any image preview or image editing software—the same things you would use to print anything else. You can either print them yourself on a household printer or have them printed professionally by a third party.

What size is your digital paper?

The most common size offered on Etsy, and the size we typically offer, is 3600 x 3600 pixels, which is 12 x 12 inches (305mm x 305mm) when printed at 300 DPI—the standard size of scrapbook pages you find at craft stores.

What is VAT? Why is my purchase total higher than expected?

VAT is value-added tax, and is charged to you by certain countries (namely, those in the EU) on your digital purchases. To ensure that you follow the laws of the country you reside in and pay this tax, Etsy has chosen to collect and remit it on behalf of sellers on Etsy, such as us, who sell to you. This is beyond our control and based on the laws where you live.

Can I use your designs commercially?

Yes, everything we sell can be used commercially according to our shop policies, which you can read here:

https://www.etsy.com/shop/PaperElement?ref=hdr_shop_menu#policies

If you plan to sell merchandise containing our designs, you should read our full Standard License agreement to be sure of the rules.

If you are not selling merchandise containing our designs and are only using them as a part of business cards, flyers, packaging, branding, logos, website backgrounds for your own business etc. then you are already good to go!

Is this physical paper? Will I receive something in the mail?

No! We sell only digital designs that you must print yourself or have printed by a third party. Nothing physical is sold or shipped by us and you will not receive anything in the mail.

Why does the color look different once printed? How do I ensure the most accurate color?

Colors may vary between monitors and printers and whether you are printing with a home inkjet printer or professional CMYK print methods. Depending on your own personal monitor’s calibration and printer's technology and inks, the colors you see on your screen may not necessarily be the colors that result when an image is printed.

Colors will ALWAYS appear more bright and vivid on your screen than they will when you print them on actual paper. This is because your screen is using light to produce the colors, and paper cannot produce light. We recommend printing on bright white cardstock if you are concerned with getting the most accurate color.

Paper color, weight and texture will also affect print color.
