What is a cartoon license and why do I need it?
When someone creates something they own the intellectual property rights; he or she decides  who has the right to use their work. A license gives you the right to use a particular cartoon in a particular way.

We offer ten licenses, ranging from a simple license for digital use only to a full license allowing you to use the cartoon in print and online with worldwide distribution rights. All our licenses are valid indefinitely, meaning you will not have to worry about it expiring.

Our license are clear and simple and should fit almost any need. Just choose the apporpriate license, and dowwnload your cartoon(s) in high resolution immediately.

I want to use a cartoon for a non-commercial purpose. Can I use it for free?
No. Our cartoonists are professionals that depend on their work to make a living. We do offer a non-profit license that will allow you to use our cartoons at a reduced rate. You'll also have the benefit of knowing your purchase supports a cartoonist somewhere in the world.

Who do you not charge VAT?
