Please Respect Our Copyright!

Please don't buy stamped images of our designs from Ebay/websites. The people responsible for this are breaking our copyright and are acting illegaly. For some reason Ebay turn a blind eye to this practice but we will not! We have worked hard to build our business and a lot of time and effort goes into producing the designs. It also costs a lot of money to have the stamps manufactured. We are quite happy for you to sell cards you have made using our stamps.... if you have any questions read our Angel Policy which is on our website. If you ARE thinking of buying our stamps to sell as stamped images on ebay or any where else then please think carefuly because we WILL take legal action if we have to!

How sad that people don't realize (or just don't care) that this is no different than stealing from someone. I hope E-Bay will take action because people who do this spoil it for everyone else.

It's time Ebay took action over this....I typed in Tilda stamps yesterday and 90% of what came up were stamped images....for people with not much spare cash it's a really big temptation to buy stamped images.....it really shouldn't be beyond Ebay to block them.Sorry you're having these problems.

I so agree with you about Ebay allowing people to sell stamped images, thats one thing Ive never done or bought. Well my love Ive used my first Xmas stamp hope you will like what Ive done with it, thank you for the lovely comments on my Halloween ones, Im really pleased with my last card though. With love and hugs Shirleyxxxxxxx

I think it's disgusting that people are so dishonest and at the end of the day the people buying are as much to blame as the people selling. So let's hope that people who read your blog Janet take notice of your warning. Jo x

I too think it is wrong for Ebay to allow this- although for me it was seeing stamped images of Millie which led me to google for your site and now I am a very happy owner of my first pink gem stamps (and my wishlist is filling up too!)
So a mini silver lining! (And I checked and the seller has removed all your stuff although not that of other designers!)
