** NEOSTOCK LICENSING FAQs **

 

1. How do I know if the title I am designing for will exceed 250,000 print copies?

In most cases, our STANDARD LICENSE will be the right choice for your book cover / cover illustration project. The MASS MARKET LICENSE is for major publishers, or design agencies -- who are working on projects that will be reaching very wide audiences (exceeding 250,000 print copies).

 

2. What license shall I use, if I want to create SWAG, bookmarks, postcards etc?

If the products you're creating are FREE giveaways, like supplementary promotional items for book releases (for instance), our STANDARD LICENSE will be fine.

If however, you are creating items (such as calendars, fine-art prints, templates etc.) TO SELL -- then you will have to purchase the EXTENDED LICENSE.

 

3.What license do I need, if I want to create Book Trailers?

You can create book trailers with our STANDARD LICENSE, as it is a supplementary promotion tool, and not a product to be re-sold.

 

4. Can I upgrade my License (if I choose to sell products / reach a mass market audience)  later down the line?

Most certainly!! Drop us a line via our CONTACT PAGE, and we'll arrange an invoice for the upgrade fee.

 

5. Do you have MODEL RELEASE FORMS?

We hold model-release forms, for all shoots within our library.

 

6. How do I purchase your images?

When you click on an image within our galleries, there is a blue '$ Buy RF License' button, click that to see the price / license options and add the image to your cart.

 

7. How do I create an account on the NeoStock Website?

To create a NeoStock account, either add an image to a Lightbox and click 'Save for Later'... or alternatively add an image to the cart ($ Buy RF License), and go through the checkout process.

 

8. Can I use my image(s) for multiple projects?
