    Hello friends,

    googling around last night, I came across a website called Cardsunlimited. Apparently it's a greetings card company that accepts images from amateur photographers, which may or may not be chosen as images suitable for their greeting cards range.

    Has anyone dealt with this company? And how much would you sell an image for?

    I thank you in advance for your help.


    Frank.

    You get a 20 voucher to spend on the site and the terms and conditions are horrendous.

    From the website:

    By uploading this image, you agree to sell us a sole license to use the full size image for our cards or for any other products we may produce, for as many items as we like.
    You retain copyright, which means that we cannot resell the image itself to a third party. You would not be able to sell an exclusive license to anyone else to produce greetings cards, canvases, photocards or any other products for which we may use your shot.
    We reserve the right not to make any use of your image whatsoever.


    Don't even think about sending them your images.

    For a 20 voucher.....????? Even the charity card companies pay at least 125 for an image for just the greeting card..... let alone the "other products".

    I'm sure lots of amatures will upload shots. But if your shots good enough for a greetings card, get it on a stock site.... plenty of card companies out there search them.

    Hope this helps

    EDIT.... LOL... too slow again!!!

    20 voucher sounds good to me!
    If you have no intention of ever gaining a living from photos then why would you turn your nose up at 20 worth of credit on that site?
    Most of my pics languish on my pc until I delete them so why would I turn my nose up at that offer just for an upload??

    Sowhat,

    you could be onto something there!

    Grab the 20 voucher than get out of there fast!!

    I don't know if I'll make a living out of selling images. But my wife likes to think so!
