Terms of Use

 

  • Can I use Freepik's resources as the main element of my product?

It is permitted to use our images as the main element of the end product if you are working for one specific client. You will not be allowed to use these designs, however, (flyers, posters....) as main elements if you’re selling them to multiple clients, as this will be considered as a redistribution of our resources.

For example, you’re a freelance designer and a client has asked you to design a business card; you could download a business card mockup from Freepik and give your client the printed product or PNG/PDF file of the card, but never an editable file which includes our resources.

This same example can be applied to invitation cards, flyers, posters....

If you download Freepik's resources for free and you intend to use them for commercial purposes, you must include the attribution line "Designed by Freepik" on the product. If you prefer not to include this attribution note, you can acquire one of Freepik’s Premium plans.

 

 

  •  Can I use Freepik's resources on printed products I intend to sell?

If you want to use our resources commercially, you must make sure that they’re not the main element of the design(s) that appear on your product.

This means that you must use other third party designs or your own images to make the main elements of the design and use our images as backgrounds or secondary elements of the composition.

If multiple Freepik images are used to create the design, then these will all be considered main elements, as they all belong to Freepik.

In the following steps, you’ll find examples of how to use our resources commercially.

If you download any of Freepik's resources, you must make sure that the chosen designs are not used in your own design as the main element of your composition. This means that if you download the following image from Freepik, you cannot use it as shown in the example below:

 

                              

  • To ensure the correct use of our resources, make sure that these work as secondary elements of the end product. Below is an example of a correct use of our images: 

 

 

This example can be applied to all the resources offered in Freepik, such as patterns, textures, etc.

 

  •  Can I use Freepik's resources as logos or to create logos for personal/commercial use?

The use of our resources to create logos is not permitted, as you’re not able to purchase the copyright for any of our images, nor can these be associated with trademarks.  

 

  • Can I use Freepik's images on my App/Game/Video which I intend to sell?

This is permitted as long as you comply with the policies regarding the use of our resources which include using these as secondary elements of your design, the non-redistribution of our resources and credit to the author if you’re not a Premium member. 

 

  • Can I use Freepik's resources to create derivative artwork pieces to sell?

No, if you create a derivative artwork from any of our resources this can only be for personal use and must credit the author (unless you’re a Premium member). You are not authorized to sell any derivative artwork created using our images.

 

We hope you found this information helpful. If you have any more queries related to the use of our resources please contact us and we’ll be glad to help you!

    As a premium user can I use a vector image as part of a logo for a charity... it would be approx less than 20% of the overall logo design. Examples of use are on stationary, running vests/t-shirts for club members and for club use.

    Suppose I have the premium license, downloaded an image, I used that image on a website that I developed for a client. After 12 months I can no longer renew the license.
    Question:
    Do I lose the right to use this image that I have already downloaded and used on the website I created for my client? I mean, do I have to remove this image that I used on my client's website?
