QuotesCover.com License Guide

Quotescover web application is an online tool to create beautiful quotes images for any purpose. It works by combining and altering graphic components like fonts, backgrounds, shapes, gradients, and color into one merged image. These graphic components are carefully curated from various sources to make sure that it has the right permission and license to be used by us and you as our user so you as the user can download and use it with peace of mind.

The Graphic Components Origin

Since the image produced here is a combination of many graphic components from various sources, the final image use permission depends on the graphic component license it uses. These are the details of the major graphic components’ origin and its license.

Fonts

The Fonts on QuotesCover.com are from our in-house designer, partner designers, Google Fonts, and bought with a corporate license from FontBundles.net. Fonts from our in-house designers and partner designers are released 100% free for commercial use. Fonts from Google Fonts also have open-source (Open SIL) license which means also free for both personal or commercial use. BUT the fonts we bought from FontBundles.net are released as platform use, which means we have the right to use it on our platform but you only have a right to use it for personal use.

Background Photo

The background photo on QuotesCover is an altered version from the CC0 image from Pexel. The CC0 license image allows you to use it whatever you want as derivative artwork. This means you have to alter or make a value-added to the image before you can use it for personal or commercial use. QuotesCover apps already fulfill this with the ability to modify the final image by adding texts, gradients, shape, and other graphical components. You are safe to use it as personal or commercial use.

Quotes

The quotes collection on QuotesCover is taken from widely famous quotes from famous people or no-name author eg on traditional quotes. These kinds of quotes are a public domain quote where we can use it freely.

The QuotesCover License

As we have mentioned before, QuotesCover’s final image permission depends on the graphic component license. And there are only two kinds of permission: #1 Free for personal use and #2 Free for commercial use.

If a generated quote images consist of all free for commercial use license graphic components then the downloaded image is safe for commercial use too. For example, the font’s license is open SIL, the background is CC0 then the generated image is safe for commercial use. Otherwise, if a generated quote consists of one or more graphics components that only permitted to personal use, then the final image user download is also permitted only for personal use. For example, the background image is CC0 license but the fonts are from Corporate License we got from FontBundles then the generated image is permitted for personal use only.

To make you easier, we have added a feature called license checker below the canvas. It will intelligently check whether you can use it for commercial use or you can only use it for your personal or organization needs. Always check this first before you use the downloaded.

And here is the explanation of each type of downloaded image permission in QuotesCover.com

License Checker

To make our user easier, we have created a license checker below the canvas. This license checker is a guide for users to know whether it is permitted for personal use or commercial use.

If the text all greens means all default graphic object presented there is all permitted to use for commercial.

 

If it is orange this means one or more graphic presented there (see the orange font) permitted for personal use only. This means the final downloaded image also permitted ONLY for personal use.

Conclusion

We only use a free for commercial use or free for personal use licensed graphics component including Open SIL, Custom 100% free license from us or partner, Corporate license from FontBundles, Public domain quotes, and CC0 license from stock photos. This means the final image permission depends on the graphic component license.
