General questions

I really like a pattern I found on your site, can you make some adjustments for me?
Unfortunately we do not offer customization services at this time.

Do you accept submissions from other graphic designers?
Currently we don’t have any pattern from other designers but we would love to see your suggestions. If accepted, we would be happy to link back to your site.

Why the backgrounds are so small?
They have to be tiled horizontally and vertically to fill the area. In Photoshop you can fill a large area with a seamless pattern. For websites, use CSS to repeat the pattern with the background-repeat Property.

This website is great, how can I thank you?
Thanks for asking, the greatest thing you can do is link back to and share our content on social media by using share buttons.

Is link back required for the personal use of the content on the site?
For personal use link back is not required but appreciated. 🙂

Do you have a commercial license program available where we would pay an annual license fee in-order to use all your images?
