About

Why QuoteToLiveBy.com was started

Who doesn't love quotes, right? I certainly do. I even have pinterest boards specifically for quotes and I follow quote pages on instagrams for daily doses of quotes.

Quotes can make us laugh, make us feel connected, motivate us, inspire us, or remind us of something we needed to hear, and it seems we can never get enough of them. We love to wear them, put them on our door mats, on art in our homes, keychains, jewelry, and so much more, to express what is important to us, and tell others what we're all about. They give a brief explanation of who we are and lets the world know what we stand for.

I originally started QuoteToLiveBy.com to make some of my favorite quotes into keychains to share with others, but when you're dealing with designs and quotes, you start to learn all about copyright issues LOL. And some of the charms I was purchasing from suppliers were actually copyrighted so I had to go around and purchase the downloads and licensing from the different shops that sold the designs. If you've ever had to do this, you know the prices rack up pretty quickly.

One of the things I noticed over and over is the licensing would cost around $15 - $20 PER DESIGN (and sometimes more) if it didn't already come with the download, and just about everyone puts a cap on how many items you can sell using the licensing. Not only that, but then they want you to fill out all of this paperwork, which you have to print out, fill out, scan into your computer and send back to them. It was so daunting. I just wanted to get to creating! :)

I ran into ONE single shop that sold their downloads at a low price, the commercial use was included, and even though it wasn't unlimited, her cap was at 500 which was way more then the rest! I asked if I could put the designs on not only finished products, but onto single charms as well that other people would purchase from me, and then use on their own products. Everyone else I requested this from said no. Her response? ... "Absolutely you can!" She was the nicest, sweetest person that I had run into during my little download purchasing adventure, and it made me want to purchase from her again and again.

Being a graduate of the ptec commercial art program, and a life long artist, I asked myself, why am I purchasing from others when I can just create my own? Sure it takes a long time to make one piece, but once it's done, it's done! Besides, I was inspired. I wanted to run my shop like this woman I came across, and I wanted others to be able to use my designs, but for completely unlimited use so they can make as much money as they allow themselves to :)

I'd love to know I made it easy for a tshirt shop, a mug shop, a hat shop, a doormat shop or whatever shop, to get different quotes and designs to offer on their merchandise (without having to create it themselves or hire someone to design, which can get really expensive), at a price they can afford, that their customers will love and purchase again and again, without having to go through a ton of legal paperwork, high pricing, or have to renew every time they sell 50 or 100 items.

Starting out always takes the longest and getting going can be very time consuming, but as I go along, there will be much more downloads to choose from. Some will be simple and some will be more detailed, but even the simplest looking downloads, I've made sure will look great on items, are done creatively, and are easy to use. Plus in my 10+ years experience in selling my different creations, (which ranged from refurbished furniture, to jewelry, keychains, art and more) people LOVE simple. They seem to prefer simple to complex. I would have these extravagant designs on furniture, but people would go for the plain old white and gold, or the black and silver 9 times out of 10. It was confusing, but it makes sense. We all love simplicity. It looks cleaner, more organized, and we can pair it and match it easier to the rest of the things in our lives.

I know a lot of times some people will create files using a font, and if the person purchasing it doesn't have that font, the file can't be used, so not to worry there. I make sure that even in the cases where I do use a font, it is changed into an image and not a font, so you will never be required to have the font in order to use the files. I even made sure to include mirrored files for those times you will need that, so you don't have to go through the trouble of doing it yourself.

I also know that a lot of quotes themselves (not just the designs) are actually copyrighted unless it falls under fair use, which a lot of the quotes going around today, you'd be surprised to know, do not. Even some that are being sold in svg shops. So I make sure that all quotes I use are either completely original and created by me, or they fall under the fair use laws, so you won't have to worry about copyright issues.

I also wanted to make all of the prices the same, and keep them low, to make everything easy. So all prices will be really low and I will also keep running sales to get even more deals. And knowing that you never have to buy a commercial license makes it that much sweeter! :)

I wanted to include as many files as possible so that no matter what programs you have, you can open the file, so I include an SVG, DXF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, AI, PSD, and EPS file with every purchase, then I include all of those files also mirrored. Since a lot of people have problems using zip files. (I did in the beginning too) I wanted to attach the files all individually, but etsy only allows you to attach 5 files, so what I've done instead is attached 3 of the most commonly used files for easy access (SVG, PNG and JPEG) and then put everything onto 2 zip files. One zip file contains all of the regular designs and the other zip file contains all of the mirrored designs. If you are one of those people who have trouble with zip files, just open the zip file up, highlight all of the files you want to take from the zip file, then press "extract" and click the drop down menu to make sure you put them to a place you can easily find them. I usually make a folder on my desktop and save them to the folder, but whatever you find is easiest and works best for you is what you should do.

So skip the paperwork, avoid extra fees, don't ever worry about counting how many items you've sold, just purchase as many downloads as you'd like, and use them forever and I wish you all the success in the world! And if you ever have any suggestions for how I can improve, please do let me know. I'll take the advice very seriously and do what I can to grow.

I'd LOVE to see some of the creations you're all able to make, so always feel free to send those to me whether in a message or review, or tag me on social media, and if you'd like, I can also share your creations on social media for you as well. Feel free to leave links to where you sell them, your website, or your shop name for potential customers to find you. I'd love to create a community that helps each other out instead of competing with each other. That is the real way we all get ahead after all. I've heard quotes before on competing like "I don't compete with anyone except the person I was yesterday" and things like that, and I always love those, but I remember seeing a quote once that actually touched my heart, and still does every time I read it, that said "I don't compete with anyone, I hope we all win" and I truly do feel that way.
