Licenses for personal, commercial, and non-profit use

We offer many of the Postscript files in Cuts & Caps free for your personal use in any medium. You can use them as is, or modify them in any way to suit your artistic purposes. We don’t own the rights to the original source graphics, which are in the public domain, but the Postscript (eps) files we create from them are the products of significant labor.

In return, we’d love it if you would provide a link back to Briar Press, at (We know that attribution isn’t always feasible—on greeting cards, for instance.) Please do not redistribute the Postscript files digitally on other sites or media.

Commercial use

To offset the expense of maintaining our free services, we request a one-time fee of $32 from commercial users for the use in print or digital media of each Postscript file indicated as free. There is a fee indicated for special, time-intensive ornaments. Commercial users would pay $20 over the stated fee. For the use of over 10 images purchased at the same time, we request a $30 fee per image. Please do not redistribute the Postscript files digitally on other sites or media.

This fee can be made by PayPal. Please include the name or URL of the cut in the space provided by Paypal. For money orders, send email to request mailing address. Our thanks for helping to support our free services.
