FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO RECEIVE MY PRINT FILE?
- For Exclusive and Non Exclusive Designs Purchased from our Print library, these are a digital download and will be available instantly.
- For Bespoke custom created designs please allow 6-7 business days for a concept proof to be delivered.
- This time frame is subject to change based on studio workloads. Any time differences will be communicated at the time of working together
WILL MY PRINT BE PROVIDED AS A SEAMLESS REPEAT FILE?
Yes, in JPEG, PDF and TIFF file formats. Layered PSD files upon request.
WHAT FILE TYPES DO YOU PROVIDE:
Kalaii Creations does not typically work in Adobe illustrator for repeat patterns. So if your printer needs Ai files, please check they can accept PSD files. In 100% of my experience printers can accept PSD or TIFF files that are high resolution so this should not be an issue.
CAN I CHANGE THE SCALE OF THE PRINT TO SUIT MY PRODUCT?
Yes. Let me know the scale and I can make that change for you.
WE AREN'T CONFIDENT LIASING WITH OUR PRINTERS, CAN YOU HELP?
Yes. I am happy to reach out to printers/manufactureres on your behalf to check all design and artwork set up requirements. Send me a contact name and email address and I will ensure I can arrange everything to their specifications.
CAN YOU CREAT AN ETIRE PRINT COLLECTION OR CAN WE USE YOU FOR ALL OF OUR DESIGN NEEDS?
Yes, I'd love to help! I love working closely with businesses of all sizes to help grow together. I'd love to establish an ongoing relationship with you if you feel I am a good fit for you. I illustrate and dabble in graphic design so can assist with most print and stationary needs.
WHAT DO YOUR DIFFERENT LICENSE TYPES ALLOW:
I have a range of different license types to suit all scenarios and budget.
Non Exclusive $100-$150 (Already designed):
A non-exclusive license is one that it is not exclusive to you or anyone else. Everyone has the right to use that design on any product and in any market.
We have a pattern library with non exclusive designs for purchase.
Bespoke Non Exclusive $350-$400:
Want something created just for you but hoping to keep costs down? We can create a non exclusive pattern to your specifications and in your vision and to help keep costs down, this pattern will also be made available for sale in our shop and will be available for other brands to purchase. You pick the colours, motifs, themes and everything.. All patterns will be illustrated or painted by Kalaii Creations.
An exclusive license is one in which the design is unique to you and your business. You have proprietary rights to use the design on any product and in any market, but you do not own the copyrights.
With an exclusive license, there are different levels of exclusivity.
This allows you to be the only person/business to ever use that design for a time frame to be agreed upon with you.
Industry Exclusive ($550.00):
This type of exclusivity enables the buyer to be the only person or company to use the pattern in a particular market or type of product. For example if you are in swimwear, no other swimwear designer can purchase this same design. But a business within the baby apparel sector can purchase this print.
License durations will be for an agreed upon timeframe/duration depending on your requirements.
Purchase Outright ($850):
When choosing to purchase a design outright at a higher premium you are purchasing the copyright and intellectual property. The design will not be sold to any other person or business again. It will be yours for an unlimited time frame.
HOW CAN WE CREATE A BESPOKE CUSTOM DESIGN TOGETHER:
Please complete my questionnaire so I can learn about your business or personal design needs. These questions will help me understand your preferred aesthetics, your inspiration, design goals and printing needs.
We can discuss your selected package options from my services page.
A deposit invoice will be issued, and upon finalization/payment, I will commence illustrating and designing for you.
WHAT CAN THESE PRINTS AND PATTERNS BE USED FOR?
Here are just a few ideas: Baby Apparel, Swimwear, any fashion/textile items, Packaging, Notebooks and Stationery, Phone Cases, Wallpapers, Prints and Artwork!
WHAT MEDIUMS DO YOU CREATE YOUR ARTWORK IN?
I love to work in watercolour, digital illustration (ie procreate and Ipad) acrylic paint and pencil illustration.
CAN THE DESIGNS BE SUPPLIED AS VECTOR FILES?
Yes, although my preferred file type is PSD files based on my illustrative designs. I can provide vector files, however Vector files only apply to illustrations which are solid colours. I will not provide vector files for Watercolour designs, as these are pixel-based illustrations which are created in Photoshop.
CAN I SCREEN PRINT A WATERCOLOUR DESIGN?
The short answer here based on my design practices is NO. Watercolour can be vectorized but this changes its appearance quite signifgantly - it becomes more patchy. I recommend printing watercolour designs and most designs issued through Kalaii Creations digitally.
DO WE NEED TO CREDIT "KALAII CREATIONS" AS THE ARTIST?
"Kalaii Creations" will always own the Copyright for each and every design under the Australian Copyright Act unless you purchase the copyright at a higher premium. Therefore it is illegal to credit anyone else as the Artist, Designer or Creator. However when using each design on your product or for your brand, it is not a necessity for you to credit Kalaii Creations. I love helping each other to grow, so where you can tag and credit Kalaii Creations, we always share this to our audience and appreciate this very much.
