Commercial Use Options
Designs offered through the Silhouette Design Store are protected by copyright and are owned by Silhouette America or its licensors. All digital designs are available for personal use. (See Section 4 of the Terms of Service)
Some digital designs are also available for commercial use. "Commercial Use" is defined as using a digital design in any physical project, product, artwork, etc. that is intended for resale or commercial use. If you plan to use Silhouette Design Store content to create products which you will sell or use for commercial purposes, you must purchase a Commercial License. The royalty-free Commercial License fee is a flat one-time payment based on the number of units you will produce for resale or distribution.
Commercial License options may be available for 1) producing up to 100 units, 2) producing up to 1,000 units, and c) an unlimited option, which allows you to produce an unlimited number of units for commercial purposes.
For instance, if you plan to produce 50 scrapbook page kits using a design from the Silhouette Design Store, you would need to purchase the commercial license allowing "Up to 100" units. If you plan to produce 150 units, you would need to purchase the license type allowing "Up to 1,000". You may always upgrade your Commercial License to a higher level should you need to do so.
All Commercial License options include a personal use license and can freely be utilized for personal use as well.
Commercial License Pricing
Commercial License pricing is structured as follows:
|Production Quantity||Up to 100||Up to 1,000||Unlimited|
General Terms for Content Use

Regardless of whether you purchase content for personal use or with a Commercial License, under no circumstances are you permitted to resell, give-away, or otherwise distribute any actual files associated with digital designs offered through the Silhouette Design Store.
