What are Digital Collage Sheets? Intro: 101

Digital Collage Sheets are digital resources for creative people (artists, crafters, jewelry designers, etc) who love and make tangible do-it-yourself arts & crafts projects.

These carefully crafted digital high resolution (300 dpi) quality images come in a variety of themes, styles, sizes and formats and generally measure 8 ½ by 11 for ease of use and printing.

All you need is a valid email account, a computer, and an inkjet or laser printer.

They are perfect for printing on your choice of paper, fabric transfers, transparencies, vellum, parchment, self-adhesive paper, vintage and specialty papers or even cardstock!

They can be used to make an unlimited and wonderful array of arts & crafts such as mixed media collage, altered art, paper goods, bottle cap jewelry, scrabble tile pendants, domino tile pendants, microscope slide pendants, scrapbook embellishments, journaling, ATC/ ACEO cards, and they can even be matted and framed for display as a work of art.

Main Advantages: 

1. PRINT MULTIPLE COPIES AS NEEDED:   You can print these designs yourself over and over again! You can print them on your own inkjet or laser printer or you can take the digital file on a CD or Zip/thumb drive and go to your local superstore or hometown copy shop to have them printed.
2. NO SHIPPING CHARGES:  Sending and receiving email is FREE – no waiting for the postman!

3. NO DAMAGED ITEMS:  Since they are digital files – your items will arrive safely!

4. SHORT WAIT TIME:  Within 24 hours your order is available for download!

5. LOW PRICE:  For the price of a cup of coffee ($ 3.00) – you can have a beautifully crafted original design.

6. MINIMAL STORAGE SPACE:  Since these are digital files they will take up very little room in your computer! As with all your computer files – just Burn the images to a CD or External Drive for safe-keeping.

7. YOU CAN USE FOR PERSONAL ARTS & CRAFTS without copyright restrictions. You may use the images in your individual personal arts and/or crafts – however, in most cases you may NOT share, redistribute, or resell the images (either digitally or in print) in original format, or as part of a digital collage sheet or scrap booking collection. 

[Please check the individual sellers TERMS OF USE policies whether you may use the images to sell for a small profit].

I hope you have found this introduction to digital collage sheets useful and that it inspires you to try them out and experiment with them! Have fun.

Best regards and thanks for visiting!
