Very important point about copyright.
Please ensure any images you use are copyright free. But more importantly is the matter of using stamped images. The majority of stamps are covered by the Angel Policy, this allows you to use stamps for commercial use on a small scale, but does not allow you to take copies of your work. This may obviously be a problem as far as HugBinders is concerned.
However, I am sure a lot of stamp designers would be happy to give their permission for us to copy the stamps as this is on a very small scale and is all for charity and non profit making HOWEVER they must be approached and asked, we cannot take it as said - they must have the opportunity to say no.
Jennie from The Artistic Stamper, Paperartsy and Docrafts have already kindly given their permission - this ONLY applies to HugBinder Pages!
I have written a draft letter - you are welcome to copy this and send to any companies whose stamps you would like to use. If you do have a reply, please let me know so that I can add them to the list and email us their reply firstname.lastname@example.org
Please also check the list before emailing companies, so that they do not have several enquires from different people.
Thank you .....
Of course an easier way, is to not use stamped images!
Please don't let this deter you from joining in - this isn't a problem its an opportunity!

If any stamp companies are reading this and would be happy for their stamps to be used in this way (or definitely would NOT) please let us know - each company will be listed in the book and cross referenced back to the stamp used - as the book will be mostly purchased by stampers its all good advertising !
