Battle Creek, MI -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/02/2014 -- Designers, crafters, and art lovers now have a new place to find that perfect piece of royalty free stock art. Falbe Publishing has built a collection of high resolution vintage and fine art digital jpeg images to serve commercial and personal projects.
Popular best-selling images include Starry Night by Vincent Van Gogh, the 14th century French knight, and the Goldilocks and the Three Bears collection of 1930s fairy tales illustrations.
The stock art catalog provides affordable images for the creative projects of both professionals and hobbyists. Falbe Publishing owner Tracy Falbe decided to expand into the royalty free stock art market because she identifies with the need for low cost, royalty free images when developing ads or blog graphics. She also happens to be an enthusiast for estate sales where she finds old out-of-copyright books and art prints that are the source material for her collection of digital images. As she began to develop her own company’s image resources, she realized that she could merchandise her images online because she had been selling digital ebook downloads for years.
“I noticed that the royalty free stock art market has two segments: expensive and lower cost. The lower cost stock art sites have a lot of redundancy in their collections, and I wanted to develop a stock art source that had different things to offer,” Falbe said.
This royalty free vintage and fine art collection distinguishes itself by only offering 300 dpi high resolution jpeg images. Recipients of the stock art gain the versatility to prepare the images for either print or web display.
Additionally, Falbe Publishing differs from some competitors that require the buying of credits to shop for images. At the Falbe Publishing web store, if a person only needs one image, then that person only needs to buy that single image. Prices range from $0.99 to $1.95 per image. Collection bundles cost more but offer a bulk discount.
Many types of people use stock art. Ad designers, bloggers, book cover designers, multi media artists, scrapbookers, and collage artists benefit from an inspiring diversity of legal-to-use images from multiple sources.
The royalty free status of the images sold by Falbe Publishing means that buyers do not have any obligation to pay royalties on the images if revenue is derived from their use. Images are sold for non-exclusive use because the vintage and historic images do not have copyright restrictions. However, Falbe Publishing offers value by identifying, scanning, merchandising, and delivering high resolution versions.
Falbe Publishing plans to keep adding to its stock art catalog. Numerous images remain to be published, and new material will be discovered and developed.
