Can I use the items from Ninnys Napkins to create handmade goods for resale?
In most cases the answer is yes. I have compiled a list below of the different brands that I carry and their policies on this. In any case, you may always use any product purchased at Ninnys Napkins to decorate/create/decoupage items for yourself or as gifts. Every product I sell has the brand listed in the description.
I have colour coded each brand to make it easier to remember which ones you can safely use in your goods for resale.
Green means GO! You can definitely use these.
Orange means with caution, or with conditions. Eg. Stamperia requires you to mention that you used their products.
Red means NO. Do not use these products if you intend to sell the item you create.
I will continue to update this page as I get answers from the different brands, and as I add new products.
If the brand you want to use is not listed here, I advise that you do not use these products to produce goods for resale at this time. Please check back later.
