How do I select a license?

When subscribing to Creative Market Pro, you can select from either the Basic License or the Enhanced License. Check out the table above for a comparison. The license you select will be part of your subscription and any assets you download while subscribed will be covered under that license.

How many End Products can I create with an asset?

You can use an asset in multiple End Products as long as they are all related to a single Design Project, where a Design Project is a complete and cohesive undertaking for one company or client, and an End Product is a new and original physical or digital reproduction that is significantly different from the original asset, and has taken time, effort, and skill to produce. For example, if you're creating a marketing campaign for a new product launch, you can use the asset in End Products for both online and print ads.

Installable Assets (such as fonts, brushes, plugins, or other assets within the Fonts or Add-ons category) are exceptions, and you can use them an unlimited number of Designs Projects and End Projects on a one-seat-per-license basis.

What if I want to use the asset more than once?

If you’d like to use the asset in more than one Design Project or for multiple clients, you can simply re-download the asset as many times as needed. Multiple downloads of the same asset will not count against your download pool, and will also help to support the original creator of the asset.

How many seats do I need?

You’ll need a paid seat for each member of your team who will need to download and use assets in their work. When signing up for your plan, you’ll be able to add as many seats as you’d like, and you can easily add additional seats at any time by updating your plan.

Can I sell the End Products I create?

Yes, you can use an asset to create a Digital or Physical End Product for Sale. Examples include t-shirts, mugs, greeting cards, mobile apps, or art prints. Under the Basic License, you can sell your End Product up to 500 times. If your subscription includes an Enhanced License, you can sell your End Product an unlimited number of times.

Can I create End Products to use on social media or other digital platforms?

Yes, you can create End Products to use in digital ads, landing pages, social media posts, emails, etc. These End Products can receive unlimited Digital Impressions.

Can I use End Products I create in printed goods?

Yes, you can produce an unlimited number of Physical End Products that are not available for sale under the Basic or Enhanced License. Examples include print ads, promotional posters, product packaging, or book cover designs.

Can I use assets in video production?

Yes, you can use assets to create a video End Product. Under the Basic License, a video can receive unlimited views when available on your company or client website or free streaming sites such as YouTube, Facebook, and Vimeo. The Enhanced License grants the additional rights for the video to receive unlimited views on Broadcast TV, in film production, or on a paid streaming service such as YouTube Red, Netflix, or Hulu.

Can I embed a font in an End Product?

Yes, the Enhanced License includes the rights to embed fonts within an End Product. With the Basic License, you can’t embed a font, but you can use a rendered font in any End Product.

Can I use assets in deliverables I create for a client?

Yes, you can use any asset you download in an End Product for your client. You'll just need to make sure that their use falls within these license terms.

What if I want to upgrade a license?

You can easily upgrade your license on your Creative Market Pro subscription plan page. Contact us if you need to upgrade the license for a single asset, and we’ll be happy to walk you through your options.

Can I trademark an End Product I create?

You can’t register a trademark for any assets you download or any End Products you create—including logos. Learn more about registering a trademark from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

Can I copyright an End Product I create?

Yes, you can copyright an End Product you create, but you must identify any assets you used as pre-existing works not owned by you. Learn more about copyrighting your work from the United States Copyright Office.

Are there any other applicable licenses?

A third-party license may govern some themes, the most common being the GNU General Public License (GPL). Because WordPress is under the GPL license, all derivative works must also be licensed under the GPL. You can read about the terms here.

Creative Market Pro License (This license only applies to Assets downloaded from pro.creativemarket.com and not creativemarket.com)

The following Creative Market Pro License Agreement (“Pro License Agreement”) together with the Creative Market Terms of Service (“TOS”) may be amended or updated periodically (collectively, the “Agreement”). The Agreement is between you (“Licensee” or “you”) and Creative Market Labs, Inc. and/or any of its affiliates (collectively, “Creative Market”). The Agreement states the rights and obligations regarding the digital content (“Assets”) licensed by you through your subscription. Please review this Pro License Agreement before you purchase a subscription—you must agree to it and the TOS if you want to use our Creative Market Pro services. If Licensee is a legal entity (such as a business, rather than an individual), you guarantee that you are fully authorized to bind Licensee to this Agreement, and you acknowledge that Creative Market relies on that guarantee. All Assets available on pro.creativemarket.com are protected by United States and international copyright laws and treaties and may be protected by other intellectual property laws. Creative Market grants you only certain rights to use the Assets, as outlined in this Agreement. All other rights are reserved by Creative Market and the Shop Owner. A “Shop Owner” means a third party who has listed Assets available for download on pro.creativemarket.com and has agreed to license Assets to licensees through Creative Market in accordance with the terms stated in this License Agreement.

When subscribing to your Creative Market Pro Plan, you will select (1) your subscription term (e.g., monthly or annually), which will automatically renew until cancelled, (2) the number of seats your team will need (e.g., the number of individual employees of Licensee that are permitted to download and use Assets (where Licensee is a legal entity), subject to this License Agreement), (3) the number of Assets you may download each month of your active subscription, and (4) a licensing option (Basic or Enhanced) which is explained below.

Capitalized words are defined.

  1. Using Creative Market Pro Assets.
    1. When you download an Asset, you are granted the rights to use an Asset under the license you selected (either a Basic or Enhanced license). An Asset may be used in only one Design Project per download, except for Installable Assets under the Add-on or Font category, which may be used in an unlimited number of Design Projects. A Design Project means a single complete and cohesive undertaking that may result in one or more End Products (defined below). Any deliverables, which we call End Products, included in a Design Project must be directly related under a single concept. If you want to use an Asset in additional Design Projects, you must obtain another license by downloading the Asset for each new project.
    2. An “End Product” means a new and original physical or digital reproduction that is significantly different from the original Asset and has taken time, effort, and skill to produce. End Products may not be used or sold in a way that is directly competitive with the original Asset. Additionally:
      1. For “Installable Assets” (which are Assets listed under the Fonts or Add-ons categories), End Products must be a unique implementation of the Asset. For example, you may download a font and use it to make unique word art, or you may download and use a brush to create an illustration. However, you must not redistribute the original font or add-on file(s) in any way.
      2. For “Templates and Themes” (which are assets listed under the Templates or Themes categories), End Products must be a unique implementation of the template or theme, requiring limited copy and content changes. For example, if you download a PowerPoint template, you may use the Asset for your company or a client after having input additional custom information. However, you may not resell the edited template or theme as stock.
      3. A “Digital or Physical End Product for Sale” means digital or physical goods that are intended or offered for sale including, but not limited to, t-shirts, mugs, greeting cards, mobile apps, eBooks or books, and art prints, etc.
      4. A “Physical End Product Not for Sale” means a physical reproduction not intended for sale which incorporates the Asset including, but not limited to, print ads, promotional posters, product packaging, billboards, business cards, and flyers.
      5. A “Digital End Product Not for Sale” means a digital reproduction not intended for sale which incorporates the Asset and allows for counting of Digital Impressions including, but not limited to, online ads, eBooks, web pages, email, blogs, and social media posts. A “Digital Impression” occurs when an End Product is viewed or rendered on a user’s screen.
      6. A “Video End Product” means an audiovisual End Product made available via the Internet, for your company website, on video streaming websites such as YouTube, Facebook, and Vimeo, or through Broadcast television or film.
      7. Creative Market will use our reasonable discretion to determine whether or not End Products meet the requirements.
  2. Licensing Options. When you subscribe to Creative Market Pro, you are granted a limited, non-exclusive, and non-transferable license to use the Assets you download. The license grants you rights to use, modify, and reproduce the Assets as long as you maintain an active subscription unless stated otherwise in this Agreement as part of an End Product. End Product(s) you create are subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement. All rights not expressly granted to you in this Pro License Agreement are reserved.
    1. Basic License: While you have an active subscription to a Basic License, you may use each downloaded Asset in one or more End Products as part of a single Design Project. The following applies to your use:
      1. An Asset may be used in Physical End Products Not for Sale where an unlimited number of copies are produced.
      2. An Asset may be used in Digital End Products Not for Sale which receive unlimited Digital Impressions or page views.
      3. An Asset may be used in Physical or Digital End Products for Sale of which you may sell up to 500 copies.
      4. An Asset may be used in a Video End Product which receives unlimited views when available for free on your company or client website, or streaming and social sites (such as YouTube, Facebook, and Vimeo). An Asset may not be used in Broadcast television or film productions, or in any Video available on any gated video subscription service (such as Hulu, Amazon Prime, Netflix, YouTube Red).
      5. Installable Assets may be used in an unlimited number of Design Projects, on a one-seat-per-license basis.
        1. Fonts may be installed on up to two computers used by a single subscriber. Fonts must be rendered when used within digital reproductions. Fonts may not be embedded for use in eBooks, Apps, Software, or ePublications, or on websites.
        2. Add-ons may be installed on up to two computers used by a single subscriber.
    2. Enhanced License: While you have an active subscription to an Enhanced License, you may use each downloaded Asset in one or more End Products as part of a single Design Project. The following applies to your use:
      1. An Asset may be used in Physical End Products Not for Sale where an unlimited number of copies are produced.
      2. An Asset may be used in Digital End Products Not for Sale which receive unlimited Digital Impressions or page views.
      3. An Asset may be used in Physical or Digital End Products for Sale of which you may sell an unlimited number of copies.
      4. An Asset may be used in a Video End Product available for free on your company or client website, or streaming and social sites (such as YouTube, Facebook, and Vimeo). An Asset may also be used in a Video End Product for broadcast television / film production and in any gated video subscription service (such as Hulu, Amazon Prime, Netflix, YouTube Red, or similar). There is no limit to the number of views your video may receive on any channel.
      5. Installable Assets may be used in an unlimited number of Design Projects, on a one-seat-per-license basis.
        1. Fonts may be installed on up to two computers used by a single subscriber. Fonts may be embedded for use in eBooks, Apps, Software, or ePublications, or on websites. You must make reasonable efforts to prevent end users from being able to extract the font.
        2. Add-ons may be installed on up to two machines used by a single subscriber.
  3. Seats: You can only download or use an Asset in a Design Project if you have an Active Seat. An “Active Seat” means that your subscription has been paid for and a seat is registered to your name. If an Asset will be used by another person, they must download the Asset via a separate Active Seat. Each person who will use an Asset must have an Active Seat.
  4. Sub-licensing: You may not sublicense, resell, share, transfer, or otherwise redistribute the Asset (e.g., as stock, in a tool or template, as source files, etc.), not even for free. The only exception is for Client or Subcontractor use (outlined below):
    1. Client Use: If you are licensing Assets on behalf of your client (or customer), then your client can use the Assets as allowed by this License Agreement. You must guarantee that you have full legal authority to bind your client to the terms of this Agreement. If you do not have that authority, then your client may not use the Asset, unless they also have an active subscription. Your client must comply with this License Agreement, and you remain directly liable to Creative Market for your client’s use of the Asset. If you use any Assets as part of an End Product or Design Project created for / delivered to a client, you agree to provide the names of your client to Creative Market upon Creative Market’s reasonable request for the sole purpose of monitoring proper use.
    2. Subcontractor Use: You may allow subcontractors (e.g., your manufacturer, printer, or mailing house) or distributors to use Assets in any production or distribution process, but only as directly related to the End Product created with the Asset(s) by you in compliance with the Agreement. These subcontractors and distributors may not use the Assets for any other purpose. Your subcontractors must comply with this License Agreement, and you remain directly liable to Creative Market for your subcontractors’ use of the Asset.
  5. Third-Party Licenses: A “Third Party License” means non-Creative Market License terms that apply to your use of Assets such as “Themes” that are built for third-party platforms. Portions of some Assets may be governed by Third Party Licenses, including an open source software license such as the GPL (GNU General Public License). In these cases, whichever portions of an Asset that aren’t governed by the Third Party License will be covered by this License Agreement. You will have to review the terms of the Third Party License that applies to those portions of the Asset to determine the rights that apply.
  6. No Asset Extraction: You may not allow the end user of your End Product(s) to extract the Asset and use it separately from the End Product(s). You may not publicly display, sell, license, or otherwise distribute the Asset (or a modified Asset) as a standalone file. You agree to take all reasonable steps to prevent third parties from accessing and/or duplicating the Asset. Using an Asset within software applications which allow a third party to generate on-demand designs is also not permitted under this Agreement. This includes (but is not limited to) print-on-demand software applications in which an end user has access to use the Asset as they design/generate their end product.
  7. Prohibited Uses
    1. You may not use any Asset in a way that violates the Agreement or in a way that infringes any intellectual property right (such as copyright, trademark, or other intellectual property rights) or other right (such as publicity rights).
    2. You may not use any Asset in a way that would allow claims of deceptive advertising or unfair competition.
    3. You may not use any Asset in a way that would result in a third party’s claim that it acquired rights in the Asset that are contrary to this License Agreement (for example if you create an End Product for a client, you may not attempt to assign all rights or license exclusive rights in the Asset to the client). Upon Creative Market’s request, if Creative Market reasonably believes that you are in violation of this Agreement, you must, at your own cost, immediately remove the Asset from any unauthorized location or use.
    4. You may not falsely represent or imply that any Asset was created by you or a person other than the copyright holder(s) of that Asset.
    5. You may not claim trademark rights or attempt to register or otherwise protect as a trademark (or service mark) any End Product that incorporates the Asset.
    6. You may not use any Asset in a way that implies that the Shop Owner and/or creator of the Asset (or the persons / property appearing in the Asset, if any) endorses any political, economic or other opinion-based movements or parties.
    7. If you use an Asset on a social media platform or other third party website, and the website uses (or announces that it plans to use) the Asset in a way that is contrary to this Agreement, you agree to remove all End Products incorporating the Asset from the site. You also agree to promptly notify Creative Market of any such use.
    8. You may not use, reproduce, distribute, perform, modify, or display the Asset (or the models, trademarks and/or property depicted) in any way that is libelous, slanderous, defamatory, obscene, illegal, indecent, harmful, abusive, racially or ethnically offensive, deceptive, infringing, invasive of personal privacy or publicity rights, harassing, humiliating to other people (publicly or otherwise), or threatening.
    9. You may not use the Asset in a way that promotes bigotry, hatred, physical harm of any kind against any group or individual, or in any way that Creative Market determines to be objectionable in its reasonable discretion.
    10. You may not use any Asset in a way that places any person depicted in the Asset in a bad light or in a way they may find offensive. This includes (but is not limited to) use of the Asset in pornography, tobacco ads, adult entertainment, club escort or similar services advertising, or political endorsements. You may not use any Asset in a way that implies that person(s) depicted in the Asset have a mental or physical illness or impairment, or in a way that defames the depicted person(s). The Asset may not be used with any unlawful, offensive, or immoral content.
  8. Termination for Breach. The Agreement (and/or any licenses for Assets) may be terminated at any time if we reasonably believe there is a violation of this Agreement and/or if we reasonably believe that there is abuse of the subscription account. If this happens, you must immediately cease using the Assets: (i) you must delete or destroy any copies, (ii) confirm to Creative Market in writing that you have complied with these requirements, and (iii) pay Creative Market any amounts which remain due at the end of the subscription. We are under no obligation to refund any fees paid by you if your account is terminated because of a breach of this Agreement. The termination rights are without prejudice to Creative Market’s other rights and remedies.
  9. Content Removal. Creative Market may stop licensing any Asset of content at any time in its sole discretion. With respect to any Asset that you have previously licensed, upon notice from Creative Market, or upon your knowledge that any Asset may be subject to a claim of infringement of a third party's right for which Creative Market may be liable, Creative Market may require you to immediately, and at your own expense, cease using the Asset and any End Product incorporating the Asset, delete or destroy any copies, and ensure that your clients and/or distributors do likewise.
  10. Usage Expiration. If your subscription is terminated or expires, or if you no longer have an Active Seat, you may not create any new End Products, and must immediately cease use of and delete or destroy any Asset previously downloaded. All End Products created during the period when your seat was active will remain properly licensed (subject to Sections 8 and 9 above).
  11. Limited Warranty
    1. Creative Market represents and warrants that:
      1. Shop Owners have granted Creative Market the rights to sell their Asset under the terms of this Agreement, and Shop Owners agree to be subject to the terms of this Pro License Agreement.
      2. Shop Owners guarantee to Creative Market that your acceptable use of any Asset in compliance with the terms of Agreement will not (i) infringe any copyright or trademark, (ii) violate any publicity rights, or (iii) be libelous, pornographic, or obscene ((I) and (II), together, the “Creative Market Limited Warranties”).
      3. The Creative Market Limited Warranties do not apply to Assets subject (in whole or in part) to Third Party Licenses.
      4. Your sole remedy and Creative Market’s sole obligation in the event of a breach of the Creative Market Limited Warranties is (i) for Creative Market to provide you with a similar replacement Asset at no additional cost (upon our reasonable determination) and (ii) indemnification as outlined in Section 12(a) below (if applicable).
  12. Indemnity
    1. Creative Market’s Indemnification: Provided that (i) the Asset is only used as allowed by this Agreement, (ii) you have not breached this Agreement in any way, and (iii) your subscription also includes indemnification protection, Creative Market agrees to defend and indemnify you up to the Liability Limit (defined below) that is included with your subscription, if any, that you selected and as identified in your invoice. This limited obligation to defend and indemnify you is limited to the following: (A) your direct damages arising from a third-party claim directly and solely attributed to Creative Market’s breach of the Creative Market Limited Warranties, plus (B) reasonable attorney’s fees. This indemnification does not apply to damages, costs, or losses arising from how you have used the Asset(s), or from modifications you have made to the Asset after downloading it. If the Asset is found to be subject to a claim of infringement of third-party rights, this indemnification does not apply to your continued use of the Asset, after you become aware of the claim whether or not Creative Market notifies you. If you discover that such a claim is made, you must notify Creative Market in writing (sharing all known details of the claim or threatened claim) within 5 business days from the date you knew or reasonably should have known about the claim or threatened claim or Creative Market will not have any obligation to defend or indemnify you. Creative Market will not be responsible or liable for legal fees/other costs you incur prior to your notifying Creative Market. Creative Market will also not be liable for any such costs before we have a reasonable time to analyze the validity of the claim. Creative Market shall have the right to assume the handling, settlement, and/or defense of any claim or litigation that is subject to Creative Market’s indemnification obligation. You shall fully cooperate with Creative Market in the defense of such claim and shall have the right to participate in any litigation at your own expense.
    2. Your Indemnification: If any damages, liabilities, and expenses (including outside legal fees) arise from your breach of this Agreement, or your connection to a breach of this Agreement, you agree to indemnify and hold the following parties harmless: Creative Market, its parent, subsidiaries, affiliates, and Shop Owners (“Creative Market Indemnified Parties”). This includes all team members, employees, directors, and officers employed thereunder. Your indemnification obligation is conditioned upon (i) Creative Market notifying you in writing via the email address provided on your account no later than 15 business days from the date Creative Market knew about the claim / threatened claim, and (ii) Creative Market including all known details of the claim or threatened claim promptly. Creative Market shall have the right to assume the handling, settlement, and/or defense of any claim / litigation that is subject to your indemnification obligation. However, Creative Market will not enter into any settlement that involves any admission of wrongdoing or liability, any ongoing obligations, or any payment by you without your written consent, not to be unreasonably refused. You have the right to participate in any litigation at your own expense.
  13. Liability Limit
    1. Except to the extent prohibited by law or if Creative Market is obligated to provide indemnification to you (which is subject to the cap described below in Section 13(b)), Creative Market’s maximum aggregate liability to you (for any reason, whether based on contract, tort, or otherwise) shall be limited to the fee you have paid to Creative Market (under this Agreement or any other agreement with Creative Market) during the prior 12 month period before the claim arose.
    2. Only if your subscription includes indemnification protection, and Creative Market is required to indemnify you pursuant to Section 12(a) above, the maximum amount Creative Market is responsible for (whether under this Agreement or any other agreement for the same Asset) is $10,000 or $250,000, corresponding to the legal protection (“Liability Limit”) amount included with your subscription plan. For clarity, the Liability Limit is per Asset; this means the coverage does not increase beyond $10,000 in total (or $250,000, as applicable) if the same Asset is subject to multiple claims, but means that in the unlikely event two different Assets are subject to claims that require indemnification, the cap would be $20,000 or $500,000 as applicable.
  14. Disclaimer: ALL ASSETS ARE PROVIDED "AS IS.” SUBJECT ONLY TO THE CREATIVE MARKET LIMITED WARRANTIES, ASSETS DO NOT HAVE A WARRANTY (OR IMPLIED WARRANTY) OF ANY KIND, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF NON-INFRINGEMENT, MERCHANTABILITY, OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND CREATIVE MARKET AND ITS LICENSORS EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES RELATING TO THE ASSET, CREATIVE MARKET WEBSITES, OR OTHER MATERIALS OR SERVICES ("CREATIVE MARKET PRODUCTS & SERVICES"). CREATIVE MARKET MAKES NO WARRANTY THAT THE CREATIVE MARKET PRODUCTS & SERVICES WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS OR THAT USE WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR FREE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY, PERFORMANCE AND USE OF THE CREATIVE MARKET PRODUCTS & SERVICES IS SOLELY WITH YOU.
  15. Miscellaneous: This Agreement makes up the entire agreement between you and Creative Market concerning your use of the Asset. If any provision of the Pro License Agreement is deemed invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of that part of the Pro LicenseAgreement won’t affect the validity of the remaining portions of the Agreement. Those other portions will remain in full force and effect. If there is an inconsistency between the terms of this Pro License Agreement and the TOS, the Pro License Agreement will apply (only to the extent necessary to resolve the inconsistency).

    The Shop Owner’s or Creative Market’s failure to assert any right or provision under this License does not mean we waive that right or provision.
