About PaperSphinx

On Etsy since 2015

Painting cuteness!

Paper Sphinx started in 2015 as an outlet to make use of my favorite medium: watercolors. As a graphic designer spending all day on the computer, I had little opportunity to work on actual paper. Paper Sphinx lets me pull out the paint, get a little messy, and create!

To learn more about Paper Sphinx, check out my interview with the Ijeoma for her amazing Etsy Conversations podcast:

Additional policies and FAQs
TERMS OF USE (Updated July 1, 2017)

By purchasing a Design from us, you agree to adhere to the Terms and Conditions outlined below. 

Paper Sphinx reserves the right to modify the agreement at any time without notice.

By purchasing Designs from Paper Sphinx, you are granted a non-exclusive, non-transferable license to use the Design. All copyrights and intellectual rights are retained by Paper Sphinx.

You may not claim the Design as your own. You may not resell the design as-is, or offer it for download to any outside source, whether for free or for payment.

All Designs are sold as assets in creating art, and not as final products.


Your purchase comes with a PERSONAL USE license.

- You may use our Designs an unlimited number of times in personal and non-profit projects, as long as no money is made.
- You may use our Designs on your personal blog, web site, and social media account.
- To use our Designs for your business logo, business web site/blog, or other forms of business marketing, you must purchase a COMMERCIAL LICENSE.
- You may use our Designs to create items for sale, up to 100 sales, with CREDIT REQUIRED.
- EXCEPT: You may not use our Designs for sale in a Print On Demand web site (Zazzle, Spoonflower, etc.) without purchasing a commercial license.

*** To use our Designs in items for sale without credit, OR above 100 sales, you must purchase a COMMERCIAL LICENSE.


You may buy a COMMERCIAL USE license with the below terms:

- Each Commercial license applies to a single Design. If you have multiple Designs that require commercial use, you must purchase a separate Commercial License for each Design.
- You may create items for sale, up to 1000 sales.
- You may sell items without providing credit to Paper Sphinx.
- You may sell digital items, as long as the Design is not offered for download as-is, and the final product is “flattened”, meaning the customer cannot isolate and pull out the Design.
- You may use our Designs for sale in a Print On Demand web site (Zazzle, Spoonflower, etc.) up to 1000 sales.

FOR EXAMPLE, you may create a digital sticker sheet with the Design and offer it for sale as a PNG, JPG, etc. You may not offer the sticker sheet as a layered Photoshop file. You may not resell the Design as clipart, even if edited.

*** To create items for sale beyond 1000 sales, please contact us for custom licensing options.


A “Design” is one pack of graphics in a single listing. For example, If you purchase the Woodland Pack, all graphics in the Woodland Pack count as one Design.

A “Sale” applies to an entire Design. For example, if you purchase the Woodland Pack and sell a product with the Fox design on it, and a product with the Raccoon design on it, this would count as two sales toward your sale limit.



No problem! If you’re confused, just message me with your intended use and I will let you know which license you need.

Frequently asked questions
What files will I receive?

Unless otherwise noted, all images are transparent PNGs. PNGs are versatile and can be used in many design programs, as well as word processing programs. With transparent backgrounds, you can put images over any color.

For larger image packs, I will ZIP the PNGs into a compressed folder. If you need an unzipping program, I recommend WinZIP or WinRAR.

How do I use the files?

You can simply drag into your program of choice! If you are creating layouts, you will be expected to have some knowledge of design programs (Photoshop, etc.) and functions such as layers. Layout/design help is not included in your purchase, but always get in touch if you have questions!

Can I change the colors?

Since these are hand-drawn designs, you cannot change the colors by point and click. With some knowledge of Photoshop, you can utilize color masks and layer styles to change the color. I recommend using Google to explore the many Photoshop tutorials to get you started!

Will you make me custom art/designs?

I'm not currently accepting custom art requests from individuals. If you represent a company, please feel free to contact me with your inquiry.
