FAQ

Answers to the most frequently asked questions about the Styled Stock Library.

General Stock Library

The images and graphics found in the stock library can be used for nearly any personal and business use, online and in print.

This includes:

  • Website headers, page buttons, and blog post images
  • Social media such as Instagram posts and stories, Facebook posts and ads, and Pinterest graphics
  • Business communication pieces such as email and newsletters, direct mail, print advertising, and business cards
  • Business Opt-ins such as checklists, workbooks, and .PDFs or ebooks as long as the stock image is not he main component of the download
  • Professional presentations such as keynotes, powerpoint, webinars, and e-courses

 

You cannot:

  • Share, give away or “lend” your stock images and graphics
  • Use in derivative products, whether given freely or sold
  • Use for client work
  • Use to promote another stock shop

Yes! Modify your purchased stock images and graphics to better suit your business; this includes using cropping, editing presets, filters, text, and color overlays.

Additionally, you will find options for graphic templates in the stock library that have been specifically created for you to edit to perfectly fit your business.

Every image download includes two size variations of the photograph:

  1. Full-resolution: a minimum of 3000 pixels on the shortest side (most are much larger) 
  2. Web-resolution: 1200 x 1800 pixels (or 1800 px x 1800 pixels for square images)


Full-resolution images are suitable for nearly any use that you could need. Full-res is perfect for print applications, and even for for larger web banners. In more detailed images you can even take the full-resolution version and crop it into multiple smaller images to get more mileage from a single image. 

Web-resolution images are perfect for social media, blog images, and nearly any website applications.

No! You’re totally free to use them without credit, although it does give me the warm fuzzies!

Yes, it’s true that some stock photography resources are extremely overused and – dare I say – tacky and low quality. Bleh! There are also some very well-known and high-quality stock sites that, while well-made, are SO frequently used that you see their images everywhere. Also bleh!

Not here at Holmes House Creative Co.! In fact, I strive to provide the complete opposite of that because I know how difficult it is to get great visuals on a small business budget.

Every image in the stock library is professionally styled, photographed, and edited to ensure the highest quality. The props are carefully curated to bring lots of personality so nothing ever feels “institutional” or “generic.” And, of course, you’re going to find more color in the HHCC library than anywhere else.

As for over-use, that’s not something that you have to worry about here! Between the large selection of images and graphics available, and the fact that Holmes House Creative Co. members come from such varied niches, areas, and audiences, the chances are extremely slim that your spot in the business world will become overly saturated in HHCC stock.

Due to the digital nature of the Holmes House Creative Co. products, unfortunately I cannot offer refunds. However, I am committed to your complete satisfaction – if you are unhappy in any way with your purchase please reach out to let me know how I can make it better.

No. While your individual image or graphic purchase provides you with a commercial license that allows use in any and all businesses that you personally own, it does not cover your clients or work your business is doing for your clients. Your clients will need to purchase their own membership or individual stock photos / graphics for their project. 

If you are a social media manager, website designer, or other service provider with multiple clients who would benefit from a Holmes House Creative Co. membership, contact me for a customized business membership plan.
