Need a little help.....

Hey everyone!  I have really been thinking about putting some units or other teaching things on TPT.  I just need to know about fonts and clip art stuff.  Can you use any fonts that you have bought or do you have to have a commercial license?  If anyone can help me with this I would be super excited!

Hi Ashley,
I hope you're really considering it seriously because I've loved my experience as a seller on TPT. With some fonts you just have to give credit on your blog and then share with anyone who asks (like fonts from Kevin & Amanda), sometimes it just varies. Most websites are very clear about their use policy. I know that you can use Microsoft Word clipart free. There are some great sller forums you can access on TPT, and a newsletter that is in the archives about clipart use! I'd love to refer you (if you haven't already signed up) and therefore help you out, answer questions, whatever I can do for ya (since I once was a newbie too)! I can't wait to see what you're planning to share - it is so neat seeing the variety and creativity that is represented here and on TPT!

Thank you so much Leslie! I am very serious about doing this, but some of the sites seem to make you have a commercial license. They are very expensive! I don't want to put tons of money in and then never get it back. Also, I worry that my material will not be good enough. I think I am just going to jump in and do it. I will have plenty of time this summer to create my units as well. Thank you again for your response! I will for sure use your referral link!!

You're so welcome Ashley. Touch base anytime! You can always e-mail me - and, oh believe me at one point after I had posted something... I thought I was going to jail, for sure, for using a MS clipart once this idea was brought to my attention. Now, I've got a better grasp on things, which I'm sure you'll get a hold of too! Put your fears aside an jump in - it's great to be able to earn some money while you figure a few things out. Once you register be sure to start in the sellers forum to look at a few of the clipart sites other sellers have talked about using. Hopefully you'll get some ideas. Have a wonderful teacher appreciation week!
- Leslie

I am so glad you posted this! I was thinking the EXACT same thing! I would love to start putting some things on TPT, but am too scared about the font usage! THANK YOU!

I know! I am still worried about posting something on there. I bought some fonts and some great clipart, but I still used some of the clipart from Microsoft word. I am still checking to see if that is ok.... I really can't stand the thoughts of sitting in a jail cell! He he :)
