Oh. Are Threadless people mean? I love it by the way.
And also. This reminds me SO much of a children's book that I LOVE, called Cloud Nine. It's a wordless picture book, and the concept is DIFFERENT from yours but similar. (Different enough that no one will accuse you of copying or whatever, but similar enough to be cool.) You should check it out!
As you can see, the cards (due to the watery glue I used) aren't flat. They curve. Will ironing them flatten them? I tried gluing them to a thicker piece of (straight, flat) paper but because they were so...bendy... they came unglued. Do you have any tips?
Whew! Thanks everyone... and ikillbarbies for your research. And the postcards aren't PICTURES of the paintings, they're prints. (I don't exactly know the difference, but I think it means they're mini replicas --scanned? Basically that means the photographer doesn't matter.)
I think I'll just use the pictures if need arise... because I write letters to my friends all the time, and decorate my letters with scraps from cut up postcards. In a sense, the ATCs are like my "letters".
As for Disney... I hate Mickey Mouse anyway, so pooh to them.
1. About the copyright issue... I have all these gorgeous postcards my mom collected during the 80s, and thought it would be great to make ATCs with. But then I thought about the copyright issue. I mean, some of the postcards feature the word of artists like Van Gogh, and Chagall... I know they're long dead, but even so... would it be unethical/wrong to use images of their paintings in my ATCs? Would I have to credit their work? I'm a little confused about whether it's okay to use others' images... I remember someone made these cool Dame Darcy ATCs a while back... I guess that's okay since the ATC theme was Dame Darcy's work. But even if I made an ATC that wasn't themed "Van Gogh", would it be acceptable to use pieces of Van Gogh's work? Thank you!! (Sorry about the length )
I'm positive there is a link that explains all this... but for some reason I can't find it!!
