Custom Illustration License
By submitting your pet’s photo and purchasing a custom illustration portrait from Fur and Feather, you agree to grant to Fur and Feather, along with its affiliates and partners, a non-exclusive, irrevocable, non-transferable, except as explicitly set out herein, worldwide license to use, promote, display, reproduce, and distribute your pet’s likeness for commercial and non-commercial purposes, including, without limiting the foregoing, to reproducing the custom illustration portrait on the Website, manufacturing and selling paper and digital prints and other products incorporating your pet’s likeness (including derivative products) through the Website, and use in all Fur and Feather promotional materials on social media and in print.
Except as and to the extent expressly permitted, or as reasonably necessary to make any use of the custom illustration portrait of your pet’s likeness permitted by these Terms, Fur and Feather shall not, and shall not permit others to modify, correct, adapt, or prepare derivative works or improvements of the portrait without proper attribution and in accordance with this agreement.
Ownership of Final Artwork
The artwork (digital illustration) is jointly owned by the customer and Fur and Feather. We have the right to use your pet’s portrait for advertising purposes and commercial usage. You have the right to reproduce my artistic representation of your pet for personal use only unless consent is expressed otherwise.
Commercial Usage vs. Personal Usage
The customer is strictly prohibited from commercial usage of the final pet illustration unless otherwise noted. Commercial Usage is the resale of the imagery for profit in any form, whether that be prints, merchandise, etc. Fur and Feather may use the final artwork for commercial usage and advertising purposes. If it is discovered that the customer has breached this agreement, a cease and desist order will be issued. If this is ignored, legal action will be taken.
However, these illustrations are for personal use only! They may be printed on whatever you like, gifted to loved ones, and shared on social media with credit and a tag to Fur and Feather. They may never be published in a public forum commercially, reproduced for sales, or online without consent or credit and additional compensation if intended for commercial sales.
This varies based on my personal schedule and the pending queue of commissions. I typically stress that it will take 2-3 weeks to be completed. If my load is light, I can turnaround an illustration in less than a week. You will be notified if this is a possibility.
Gift Deadlines and Refusal of Business
When it comes to gift deadlines, they must allow for at least 2 weeks delivery time unless the 3 Day Rush Option is requested. If less than 2 weeks is requested, we will reach out personally to notify the customer that this is not allowed. If they refuse to purchase the 3 Day Rush option and are unwilling to abide by the 2 week minimum, a refund will be issued.
3 Day Rush Option
3 Day Rush is only available during regular sales throughout the year (will be removed for Christmas and is subject to change at any point). For a surcharge, the customer will receive the digital download link in 3 business days. This will NOT impact merchandise shipping as this is dependent on vendors and cannot be controlled.

You may terminate the Terms at any time by closing your account, discontinuing your use of this Site and providing Us with a notice of termination.
