PSD Files Inquiries

I do not sell or provide layered PSD files.  All final artwork is delivered as PNG, and JPG.  If you are publishing at a much later date, and prefer to use your own typography, an art-only file as a PNG can be sent to you, but the final artwork is still subject to these terms and conditions.

You are responsible for storing any files sent to you on your own, secure server. Once transferred from my server to yours, art-only PNG files will be removed/deleted after five business days.

Please send a message if you have any concerns or questions!
