A word about Images: Copyright laws pertain to creative works such as images, drawings and photographs. It may be illegal to copy images from the internet or another company’s marketing material because the image may be owned by the company or a photographer. Designers should use only images that they have the legal right to use. Royalty-free images are readily available from various stock photo companies. Consent to use images is the responsibility of the client and Carleton Printing must be held harmless.
