Terms and Conditions

Last updated on August 11, 2016 to include: When you make a purchase you are buying the license to use the design and not the design itself.
Welcome to SoCuteAppliques! All of the designs you see here are created by Melisa Parker, and the copyright of all designs remain property of Melisa Parker and SoCuteAppliques. When you make a purchase you are buying the license to use the design and not the design itself. Please respect my creativity and don’t reproduce or copy my designs.

RULES FOR MY DESIGNS:
**There are TWO types of files sold: embroidery and SVG/Cut files. PLEASE read the descriptions of the designs carefully as there are NO refunds or exchanges on digital designs. The file type is listed several times, it is located in the title and description. If you are unsure as to which file you need please message me BEFORE purchase. Again THERE ARE NO REFUNDS IF YOU PURCHASE THE WRONG FILE TYPE.
**YES you MAY sell items that you have created using my designs. You MAY NOT under any circumstances sell, share, give away, or trade my designs. You MAY NOT mass produce anything using my designs. (More than 100 items, please contact me) Small commercial use is acceptable, if you are unsure if you are mass producing feel free to contact me. You are NEVER allowed to offer my designs on print on demand sites such as Zazzle, café press, Amazon Merch etc.

By purchasing any of my files you are agreeing to not share this file/design
(or any part of this design), including sharing on any facebook site, or
within any other digital file you create using this file (or any part of this
file/design), or resell this file (including but not limited to selling this file
as a cut template or premade transfers).


**YES you can use the digitized pictures or any stitched picture with the SoCuteAppliques watermark on them. Watermark must be kept intact. If the watermark is cutoff I will report them to Etsy for copyright infringement.
**NO you may not under any circumstances turn any embroidery design into an SVG or any other cutting file. I do offer some SVG files and more will come out soon.
**NO you may not under any circumstances use any design or part of a design to create a new design you intend to sell. You may mash designs together, stitch it, and sell the finished item.
***YOU ARE NEVER ALLOWED TO SELL, SHARE, GIVE AWAY, OR TRADE MY DESIGNS***

EMBROIDERY:
All embroidery designs come with instant download and 7 formats. .pes, .xxx, .jef, .exp, .vip, .dst, .hus
**You must have a working knowledge of your embroidery machine and a means to transfer your design to your machine. I am not familiar with all embroidery machines or software, please refer to your user guide with questions about this.
**PLEASE NOTE** Some embroidery designs come with multiple sizes and others only come with one size, it is your responsibility to read the design description and be aware of the size you are purchasing. I do NOT offer exchanges if you purchase the wrong size. The size is clearly listed in the title as well as the description.
**Finished sizes and stitch counts are listed on a picture for most designs. IF you come across a design that doesn’t have the info picture, please feel free to contact me and I will get you the information needed.
**IMPORTANT** Due to the large stitchcounts with my designs you need to use the correct amount of stabilizer. Since each machine is different I can't tell you the best stabilizer to use for your particular machine. I prefer to use a good weight cutaway and float a piece of tearaway when necessary. Hooping not floating is highly recommended. My embroidery designs stitch best in the size they are created in. I am NOT responsible for the quality of the stitchout if you resize, alter, or convert it anyway. If you don't stabilize properly you won't have a good stitchout. There are lots of great youtube videos created for each machine that discuss stabilizer.


CUTTING FORMATS:
All cutting files come in SVG, EPS, DXF and PNG formats. You must have working knowledge of your machine and software to use these designs. I am not familiar with all machines and software, please refer to your user guide with questions about this.

FEEDBACK: I love seeing all the things you create with my designs, feel free to add your pictures to your reviews. If for any reason you have a problem with a design please contact me, I will always do everything in my ability to fix the problem. I’m human and although I do use testers for my designs, on occasion an error will still slip through.

CUSTOM REQUEST: I do offer custom designs when my to do list allows it. Prices vary depending on design. Please do not ask me to recreate something you have seen from another designer. I have my own designs and respect the work that others put into their designs and will not copy another's work PERIOD.

COUPON CODES: 1FREEBUY4 is active and can only be used at the time of purchase. Add all 5 designs to your cart ($20 minimum) and the coupon code will take off $4. The coupon is only valued at $4. If you add five $7.50 designs to your cart and use the code it is ONLY going to take off $4. Please don't message me and demand that you want your most expensive design as your free design. That is NOT how coupons work. I will not send free designs or refund you the amount of the coupon if you fail to add it during checkout.

Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you have. I will respond as quickly as possible. My normal business hours are Monday-Friday 9am to 5pm CST, I am normally not online after 5pm so please keep that in mind when contacting me. Please understand that I am a mom first and the weekends are family time. Don’t be alarmed if you message me on Friday and don’t hear back from me til Monday morning. If it is an emergency you are welcome to email me and I will do my best to get back to you.
