Just as I thought I was all done and ready to post the garden alphabet for sale, I realized that I had not gotten permission from the font’s author. The add on designs are all okay – I purchased the right to digitize those, but the font was a free font and for some reason it never occurred to me that I needed to get permission for free fonts, too. Well, guess what, the permission was not granted. It’s a font that American Greetings has the copyright to and does not allow to be used for commercial purposes. So, back to the drawing board – oh, what frustration, all caused by my own negligence.
I am very pleased to say that after some searching, I have bought a very comparable script and I have redigitized all the lettering, after first getting permission from the author of the script to use it for commercial purposes. I now have to retest all those 26 designs …. It’s going to take me a while longer. I am posting a couple more photos so you know what you are waiting for. I will try to get the stitching done as fast as I can – but I am not willing to “skip” steps because I want you to know that I strive for excellence and quality. If you are one of those waiting for this font, I do apologize. When I finally wil have it all ready, I think you will be pleased.
Off to test stitch.
