License Terms

  1. For each digital icon or illustration (called an “Item”) you use from your CNVS purchase of an individual collection or subscription (called the “Materials”), you are granted a license to use the Item on a non-exclusive, non-transferable, commercial, worldwide and revocable basis, for unlimited use under the following conditions.
  2. The license starts when you make your purchase and download the Materials. 

What you can do with the Materials

  1. The license includes the right to utilize the Item through communication to the public (performance), broadcast, display, distribution, and reproduction, but only as a part of the End Product which you have created with the Item.

Commercial End Products

  1. The license enables you to create an “End Product” (requiring an application of skill and effort) in one of the following ways. An End Product is a work that incorporates the Item as well as other things, so that it is larger in scope and different in nature than the single Item.
  1. You can make any number of copies of the End Product created using an Item. you can distribute the End Product through multiple media.
  2. You can modify or manipulate an Item, or combine the Item with other works, to suit your End Product. The resulting works created using the Item are subject to the terms of this license. you can do the things allowed in this clause as long as the End Product you then create using an Item is one that’s permitted under clause 4.
  3. You can use the Materials in your printed projects or televised / video projects unless the print run exceeds 5,000 or video views / streams exceeds 15,000. Above those numbers you must get in touch to upgrade your license. Contact us at .

Client Work

  1. You can use an Item to create an End Product for yourself or for a client. If you use an Item to create an End Product for a client, then you can transfer the End Product to your client as long as you have followed the requirements in clause 4. The right to use that Item as part of the End Product is transferred to your client with the End Product under the Limited Sublicense set out in clause 6.
  2. If you transfer an End Product to a client, you do so by sublicensing these license rights in any Item within that End Product. The sublicense must only be granted on condition that

    a.) The third party has professionally instructed you (the “Licensee”) to produce goods or provide services to it/him/her and that you have used a limited number of items within the Materials to produce such goods or such services to the instructing third party

    b.) The Licensee -and not the third party- chooses the specific items within the content of the Materials to be used in the production of goods or provision of services for the third party.

    c.) The authorization granted by the Licensee to the third party is given in writing and complies with every restriction of the Licensee’s authorization to use the relevant Materials and includes, without limitation, a restriction for the third party or their own customers to reproduce, distribute, resell, relicense or extract the relevant Materials (i.e. the third party is the final user of the relevant content in the Materials).

    d.) There are no more than 100 individual assets from the CNVS library in the deliverable

    e.) You must attribute any End Product that is transferred over to your client with a legible addition of the CNVS logo and the following text:

    'The hand drawn elements are licensed specifically to this template. If you'd like to use the images in your other work, you can hop on over and get your own license at get'.

What you can’t do with the Materials


  1. you can’t redistribute an Item as stock, in a tool or as a template, in a database, or with source files. you can’t do this with an Item either on its own or bundled with other items, even if you modify the Item. you can’t redistribute or make available the Item as-is or with superficial modifications. These things are not allowed even if the redistribution is for free.
  2. you must not permit an end user to extract an Item and use it separately from the End Product created using that Item.

Template(s) for Free or Sale

  1. You can't sell templates using the CNVS illustrations, or sell bundles of templates.
  2. You can't distribute templates whether for free or for sale through marketplaces (such as Miroverse or Mural Community), Forums (Reddit, LinkedIn etc.) or other social and eCommerce channels.

Customization and Merchandising

  1. You can’t use an Item in any application allowing an end user to customize a digital or physical product to their specific needs, such as an “on demand”, “made to order” or “build it yourself” application.
  2. you can’t use an Item for printed or digital merchandising (e.g. t-shirts, cups, postcards, birthday or greeting cards, invitations, calendars, web models or electronic devices, apps, NFTs, videogames, advertising spots, audiovisual animations) to produce an End Product where the primary value of the product lies in the Item itself, including:

    a.) an End Product where the Item serves as its core component, and where without the incorporation of the Item it would not fundamentally differ from any other product of similar nature and use; and/or

    b.) an End Product where the incorporation of the Item is what makes the product fundamentally unique and valuable, and is the main driving factor for the sale of the End Product.
  3. For clarity, End Products where skill and effort have been applied to incorporate the Item into a larger design (such as with text and other graphics/images) or used as product packaging are not considered merchandising and are allowed.

    a.) For example you can’t print an image out as a poster and sell copies of that poster, as the primary value of the poster is from the image itself. However, you can print an image as a book cover and sell copies of that book, as the primary value of the book is from the writing/contents of the book and not the image itself.


  1. You can’t claim trademark or service mark rights over an Item within the End Product created using that Item.
  2. You can’t use the Materials (totally or partially) in any trademark, or part of the same, which may be used by any other means to guarantee or to imply a guaranty of any product and/or service, unless the Freepik Content used in such cases is modified in such a way as to be a new and different content not confusingly similar with the original Freepik Content or implies a use of the Freepik Content as a template or test, and not as a final item or material;
  3. you can’t use the Materials in a manner that suggests an association or endorsement of any kind by CNVS the Company.
